"This is storytelling of the highest order: lean, laconic, laced with tension." (Evening Standard)
Jack Reacher is alone, the way he likes it.
He watches a man cross a New York street and drive away in a Mercedes. The car contains $1 million of ransom money. Reacher's job is to make sure it all turns out right - money paid, family safely returned.
But Reacher is in the middle of a nasty little war where nothing is simple.
What started on a busy New York street explodes three thousand miles away, in the sleepy English countryside.
Reacher's going to have to do this one the hard way.
Although the Jack Reacher novels can be read in any order, The Hard Way is 10th in the series.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Capturing the intensity of a Jack Reacher novel might prove a task too tall for many narrators. Fortunately, Jeff Harding is one the very best. He’s also given truly riveting material here, in Lee Child’s tenth Reacher thriller. We reengage with our brooding hero in New York where a chance encounter at a café gets him out of a funk and into one of the most conflicting cases of his career. Can he trust the seemingly sinister man who’s charged him with tracking down his kidnapped daughter and second wife? Should alarm bells be ringing after Reacher discovers his first wife died after her own kidnapping ordeal? It all leads to a barnstorming climax in a quiet English village that ranks as one of the series’ best ever.
