Description

"This is storytelling of the highest order: lean, laconic, laced with tension." (Evening Standard)

Jack Reacher is alone, the way he likes it.

He watches a man cross a New York street and drive away in a Mercedes. The car contains $1 million of ransom money. Reacher's job is to make sure it all turns out right - money paid, family safely returned.

But Reacher is in the middle of a nasty little war where nothing is simple. What started on a busy New York street explodes three thousand miles away, in the sleepy English countryside.

Reacher's going to have to do this one the hard way.

Although the Jack Reacher novels can be read in any order, The Hard Way is 10th in the series.

Critic Reviews

'Another cracking teeth-chatterer.' Daily Mail Lee Child is often mistaken for a US writer, so skilfully and enthusiastically has he embraced the idiom of the American thriller ... One of the genre's finest practitioners. Independent Child is a consummate thriller writer: his prose is trim but descriptive, his plots believable, fresh and positively airtight, and shows himself a master of misdirection. Time Out The invincible Reacher is as irresistible as ever. Sunday Telegraph Reacher, who has long since gained mythical status, is human after all ... This is storytelling of the highest order: lean, laconic, laced with tension. -- Mark Sanderson Evening Standard
