Editorial Reviews

Review

“Child is one writer who should never be taken for granted.”The New York Times Book Review
 
“[Lee Child] shows no signs of slowing down. . . . Reacher is a man for whom the phrase
moral compass was invented: His code determines his direction. . . . You need Jack Reacher.”The Atlantic
 
“Superb . . . Child neatly interweaves multiple narratives, ratchets up the suspense (the reveal of the motel plot is delicious), and delivers a powerful, satisfying denouement. Fans will enjoy learning more of this enduring character’s roots, and Child’s spare prose continues to set a very high bar.”
Publishers Weekly (boxed and starred review)

“Another first-class entry in a series that continues to set the gold standard for aspiring thriller authors.”
Booklist (starred review)
 
“With his usual flair for succinctness and eye for detail, Child creates another rollicking Reacher road trip that will please fans and newcomers alike.”
Library Journal (starred review)

“Cerebral . . . One doesn’t want Mr. Child’s storytelling to end. . . . Get your copy soon before
Past Tense sells out. Then enjoy the ride.”New York Journal of Books
 
“The way everything winds up for all the participants shows a satisfying generosity of storytelling spirit.”
Kirkus Reviews

Praise for the Jack Reacher series

“The truth about Reacher gets better and better. . . . This series [is] utterly addictive.”
—Janet Maslin,The New York Times

“Jack Reacher is today’s James Bond, a thriller hero we can’t get enough of. I read every one as soon as it appears.”
—Ken Follett

“Reacher is the stuff of myth. . . . One of this century’s most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes.”
—The Washington Post

“I’m a fan.”
—James Patterson
 
“The Reacher novels are easily the best thriller series going.”
—NPR

“Reacher is a man for whom the phrase
moral compass was invented: His code determines his direction. . . . You need Jack Reacher.”The Atlantic
 
“I pick up Jack Reacher when I’m in the mood for someone big to solve my problems.”
—Patricia Cornwell
 
“[A] feverishly thrilling series . . . You can always count on furious action.”
Miami Herald
