Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER •  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
 
“A timely, suspenseful, morally complex thriller, one of the best I’ve read this year . . . Child weaves in a passionately told history of opioids in American life. . . . Child’s outrage over it is only just barely contained.”The Philadelphia Inquirer
 
“A perfect example of Lee Child’s talent . . . Lee Child is the master of plotting. . . . This is Child’s most emotional book to date. . . . This is not just a good story; it is a story with a purpose and a message.”Huffington Post
 
“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

    Usually I can’t put a Reacher novel down, and I’ve read them all, some even two to three times. But this is the slowest moving one yet. It’s as though Childs Editor begged him for a book, so he cranked out something that didn’t really work and released it anyways. (Yes Editors, you can even edit Lee Child’s!) I must say I kept on reading, hoping it would pick up, but it didn’t until the very end. The message was Fantastic! Writing about wounded Veterans is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT! We need to know the trauma they suffer on an ongoing basis so that we can possibly help.

    This was among the most disappointing Reachers book of all. Started out with a great premise then went off the rails to fantasy world with long tedious periods and ridiculous conclusion, which was never tied down. Sanderson did what? Scorpio died in the dryer? Mackenzie went where? This was just a total “reach”, pardon the pun.
  • Reacher is back!

    This is typical reacher. More cerebral, more investigative, and back to work made Jack Reacher such a great read.

    Big Reacher and Lee Child fan. I've read all the Reacher novels but this one did not meet his usual standards. Hope the next one is better.

    Amazing how a class ring can lead to drama and a roller coaster ride of suspense in the vastness of Wyoming. Reacher is aging but in no way slowing down. Where will he take us next?

    This was a typical Lee childs read. He alway does a great job. This book was well structured and a pretty good story. It wasn’t among my favorite Lee Childs books but a good read nonetheless.

    I loved this story. It was suspenseful, had me constantly guessing, and I liked the ending. And Jack is his usual smartass self and at some points the dialogue between he and the PI from Illinois had me rolling: “Previously broken either recently or a long time ago?” 😂 You’ll see what I mean when you get to this part. Mr. Child used super short sentences in this story which I loved. Doing so made it easy to read and created tons of suspense. I liked it and couldn’t put it down 👍🏻
