Lee Child's award-winning thrillers feature ex-military policeman Jack Reacher taking on the bad guys of the world when the law no longer can.

Lee Child is a wonderful new writer with three books so far - KILLING FLOOR, DIE TRYING and the most recent being TRIPWIRE. I have read the first two and found them impossible to put down. He is extremely talented - his books are very action-packed and suspenseful. This is a series featuring a guy named Reacher. I really recommend his books for anyone looking for a new writer.

I would agree that Lee Child is a real find as a mystery writer. We've read all three of his novels, Killing Floor, Die Trying, and Trip Wire and find his hero, Jack Reacher, to rank up there with all of the guys you want to follow in subsequent books. Tough and resourceful, ready to do what it takes puts you in mind of Sandford's Lucas Davenport. These are "must reads".

The newest Reacher book, "Running Blind," is another great addition to the series and just as compelling as the earlier ones. As usual, you gotta accept a few stretches, but what the heck...

I have to agree that Lee Child is going to be one of the Top writers on the market. I've read all Lee Child's books and continue to read the compelling story of Major Reacher and hopefully I will be reading Lee child's books for the next twenty or fifty years.

There is only one thing to say about your novels Mr Child. Could you Please write a little faster, & produce more. They are some of the best that I have ever read. Thank you . R J Tildesley

It is inadequate to describe Lee Child as a thoroughbred competing, in the main, against donkeys. Mr Child is more akin to a winged pegasus soaring in the clouds transcending the concept of competition altogether.

Lee Child has penned another tense, taut adventure in the unusual life of ex-Army MP, Jack Reacher. THE ENEMY, eighth novel in the series, delves back into Reacher's military past as a starched, polished, authority-defying soldier. Crisscrossing the globe to solve a series of murders, Reacher faces professional and family crises with his own version of style, honor and reality. A terrific start for new Reacher readers and a boon for current fans to explore the background of our enigmatic hero.

Hear that Lee Child's novels may be coming to the silver screen. Which actor could possibly do justice to Jack Reacher?

john bradley - 09:46am Mar 8, 2007 PST(#9 of 12)

On this discussion on who should play Jack Reacher in the movie Id like to add Michael Madsen - Ive just been to his new web-site ( ) and there is that picture of him walking away and it all became clear.

antionette - 11:59pm Jun 28, 2008 PST(#10 of 12)

best actor for lee child books are "the rock"

john storer - 02:07pm Aug 19, 2008 PST(#11 of 12)

cannot agree that either Madsen or The rock would do justice. How about a suggestion from left field. He's not an actor (yet) but Lawrence Dallaglio, the former English rugby captain, would fit the bill perfectly. Google image him and tell me I'm wrong

David Coffel - 07:06pm Jul 5, 2009 PST(#12 of 12)

My Pick for Jack Reacher is Jason Statham.
