'Cunning, explosive . . . A thumping good read.' Time Out
Jack Reacher, alone, strolling nowhere.
A Chicago street in bright sunshine. A young woman, struggling on crutches. Reacher offers her a steadying arm.
And turns to see a handgun aimed at his stomach.
Chained in a dark van racing across America, Reacher doesn't know why they've been kidnapped. The woman claims to be FBI. She's certainly tough enough. But at their remote destination, will raw courage be enough to overcome the hopeless odds?
Although the Jack Reacher novels can be read in any order, this is the 2nd in the series.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Lee Child’s second Jack Reacher novel wastes no time in igniting its plot, with the hulking antihero snatched from a downtown Chicago sidewalk in broad daylight. Suddenly Reacher is fighting for his survival when he’s mistaken for the ringleader in the kidnapping of federal agent Holly Johnson. Child’s no-nonsense writing style delivers white-knuckle thrills. This bracing thriller takes us inside the FBI, the Waco-style Montana Militia and even the White House. Die Trying makes it easy to see why Reacher has become one of fiction’s most indelible leads.
