Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child returns with a gripping new powerhouse thriller featuring Jack Reacher, “one of this century’s most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes” (The Washington Post).

Reacher takes a stroll through a small Wisconsin town and sees a class ring in a pawn shop window: West Point 2005. A tough year to graduate: Iraq, then Afghanistan. The ring is tiny, for a woman, and it has her initials engraved on the inside. Reacher wonders what unlucky circumstance made her give up something she earned over four hard years. He decides to find out. And find the woman. And return her ring. Why not?

So begins a harrowing journey that takes Reacher through the upper Midwest, from a lowlife bar on the sad side of small town to a dirt-blown crossroads in the middle of nowhere, encountering bikers, cops, crooks, muscle, and a missing persons PI who wears a suit and a tie in the Wyoming wilderness.

The deeper Reacher digs, and the more he learns, the more dangerous the terrain becomes. Turns out the ring was just a small link in a far darker chain. Powerful forces are guarding a vast criminal enterprise. Some lines should never be crossed. But then, neither should Reacher.

Praise for The Midnight Line
 
“Puts Reacher just where we want him.”The New York Times Book Review

“A gem.”Chicago Tribune

“Compulsively readable.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)
 
“[A] multifaceted novel about dealing with the unthinkable . . . It’s automatic: Reacher gets off a bus, and Child lands on the New York Times bestseller list.”Booklist
 
“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 book is very smart . . . [and] suggests something that has not been visible in the series’ previous entries: a creeping sadness in Reacher’s wanderings that, set here among the vast and empty landscapes of Wyoming, resembles the peculiarly solitary loneliness of the classic American hero. This return to form is also a hint of new ground to be covered.”Kirkus Reviews

  • Great Read

    This is a great read. I found it difficult to put down when I had things to get done. The story is quite believable and I think this is a good selection for a movie, as long as they don’t change anything in the story line, which is typical for Hollywood, maybe they shouldn’t make a movie.

    Mr Child reminds us how large Jack Reacher is many time to help erase the Tom Cruise movie version. Like Michael Connelly’s Bosch anti-hero, Jack enlightens us to the opioid epidemic and why big pharmaceutical has created this cris with the development and pushing through adds and pharmaceuticals reps a drug that hooks you and ensures long term profits. Great story telling and a satisfying finish.

    Too bad you let Tom Cruise ruin the franchise. Your 6 5 guy doesn’t look good when a 5 6 actor plays the character and you can’t get him out of your mind. At least someone got paid.

    Another gem from Child. Just when you think Reacher has seen and done enough. Masterful.

    The book gripped me from start to finish. I was particularly held by the sensitive exploring of and feel for the horror for a woman of having one's face destroyed in battle. Reacher's insights in situations of crisis are brilliant, whether how to fight hand-to-hand or how to handle people in non-violent moments.
  • Great story

    Very good read, lot of twist and turns, even though long book, holds your interest . Outstanding character development. In the end, everyone gets what they deserve and another great Reacher story.

    I’ve read all of Lee Child’s books more than once. This one was excellent as usual but with a fortunate bonus. Veteran’s Day is Saturday and I’ve had the opportunity to read this book in the spirit in which it was written, in remembrance of those in the Armed Services who received the Purple Heart for combat related injuries. I’m also an Army Vietnam Veteran who was fortunate to not have been injured. The story and the ending were poignant and moving. I could actually feel the emotions and the feelings of the characters as only Lee can write them. I thank him for his dedication of this work and for the joy he has given me as an avid reader of the books! I sincerely hope he continues to entertain us all with more Jack Reacher escapades into the future!
  • Lee Child & Jack Reacher are the Best of the Best

    Each Reacher novel expands on the world of this unlikely hero. This is Mr Childs best yet. Jack may use tried-but-true, highly unorthodox & not necessarily legal methods to achieve justice, but he succeeds. His sense of morality is absolute. It is refreshing in this time in America. More, please. Quickly. I am addicted.
