'A high-testosterone adventure . . . a page turner. Thrilling.' Observer
From Hope to Despair.
Between two small towns in Colorado, nothing but twelve miles of empty road.
All Jack Reacher wants is a cup of coffee. What he gets are four redneck deputies, a vagrancy charge and a trip back to the line.
But Reacher is a big man, and he's in shape.
No job, no address, no baggage. Nothing, except bloody-minded curiosity.
What are the secrets the locals seem so determined to hide?
Although the Jack Reacher novels can be read in any order, Nothing To Lose is 12th in the series.
And be sure not to miss Reacher's newest adventure, no.26, Better off Dead! ***OUT NOW***
A cert to be a number one bestseller... A version of western, of course: the drifter who comes to town, sorts out the bad guys, and moves on... He makes what he does seem simple. If it is, though, it's strange that nobody else has managed it so well
Follows in the great Philip Marlowe pulp tradition, nuanced with a dash of Rambo and Bruce Willis... Reacher is a moody, modern outsider figure, one of the great antiheroes... a liberal intellectual with machismo, and arms the size of Popeye's
Classic Child... brilliantly paced... his tough-but-fair creation, Jack Reacher, both a man's man and a ladies' man, proves once again that he's also his own man. And no one is going to get in his way
Slots a series of bone-crunching brawls into a surprisingly sinuous and zeitgeisty plot... delivers emotional depth, and Reacher's bare-knuckle sleuthing certainly keeps the adrenalin up
A high-testosterone adventure with a thoughtful nod to what is going on in Iraq... a page turner. Thrilling
From stirring novels to tender biographies, thought-provoking journalism to the books that captured lockdown, these are the titles that best reflected this extraordinary year.
