‘In the space of less than five years, Child has established himself as one of Britain’s most successful commercial novelists…Complete with crackling fast dialogue, an edgy ambivalent plot, and the capacity to make his readers turn the page, this feels like Child’s breakthrough book into the mega-sellers. He is that good.’ — Geoffrey Wansell ―
‘Reacher is a hero in the old Wild West stle: a fearless and capable loner, who lives by his own set of morals and is proud never to have killed a man who didn’t deserve it…The author is in complete control of his complicated plot and has produced another real pageturner’ — Susanna Yager ―
‘Plenty of twists and plenty of excitement…another real page-turner’ ―
‘If you like thrillers of the bang-wallop variety, with a nice bit of plotting thrown in, this is the one for you’ ―
‘Big, bruising actioner…Child’s great strength lies in spelling out exactly how explosive things are made to happen…Cathartic stuff, expertly delivered’ ―
