The Midnight Line (Jack Reacher #22)
|Author:||Lee Child; Jeff Harding (Read by)|
|Series:||Jack Reacher Ser.|
THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER/A RICHARD & JUDY BOOKCLUB 2018 PICK Jack Reacher is having a bad day. It would be a dumb idea to make it worse. Reacher sees a West Point class ring in a pawn shop window. It's tiny. It's a woman cadet's graduation present to herself. Why would she give it up? Reacher was a West Pointer too, and he knows what she went through to get it. All he wants is to find the woman. He'll have to go through bikers, cops, crooks, and low-life muscle. If she's ok, he'll walk away. If she's not ... he'll stop at nothing. Best advice: stay out of his way. Although the Jack Reacher novels can be read in any order, The Midnight Line follows on directly from the end of Make Me.
"Each year Lee Child comes up with another Reacher. Each year I lap it up. Love it...Best one for a while...there is something subversive as well as page-turning...The sentences are short, but that doesn't mean the thinking is small....I don't know another author so skilled at making me turn the page, at putting me in the thick of it all." * The Times * "I just read the new Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child....It is as good as they always are. I read every single one. " -- Malcolm Gladwell "The one that breaks your heart...Reacher has a reputation to live up to: drifter, loner, knuckles the size of walnuts, etc...[ yet has] more emotional heft than anything Child has written before." -- Janet Maslin * New York Times *
