Lee Child Books



Lee Child (Lee Child) – pseudonym. Real name – Jim Grant (Jim Grant) British writer, author of popular thrillers about the adventures of the former American military police officer Jack Reacher (Jack Reacher). Born 1954 in Coventry, Central England, a huge industrial area. According to him, he had not seen a single tree until he was twelve years old. “It was a place,” Child recalled, “where the sharpening and the bicycle chain were the decisive arguments.” He is still ready to demonstrate his scars. After graduating from high school, Child entered law school, but since his career as a lawyer did not appeal to him, Lee spent most of his time at the student theater and, failing his final exams, got a job at the Granada television company in Manchester. Having removed a total of 40,000 hours of various materials (news, screensavers, advertisements, copyright projects, etc.), Child was fired from the company, in which he worked for 18 years, due to layoffs. As an active trade unionist, Child was not an attractive candidate for most British television companies. He became a writer because, by his own admission, other ideas did not occur to him. The first novel, The Killing Floor, 1997, won Anthony and Barry awards. In the summer of 1998, the writer moved to the United States, where he currently lives with his family near New York. He is actively involved in organizing the Association of Thriller Authors, who want to separate themselves from detective writers, but at the same time willingly take part in all kinds of detective festivals. His brother Andrew Grant also writes thrillers.  Detective. Declaration of love. , Official site Bibliography Series Jack Reacher – Jack Reacher 1997 – 1.
