THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER/A RICHARD & JUDY BOOKCLUB 2018 PICK
Jack Reacher is having a bad day.
It would be a dumb idea to make it worse.
Reacher sees a West Point class ring in a pawn shop window. It’s tiny. It's a woman cadet’s graduation present to herself. Why would she give it up? Reacher was a West Pointer too, and he knows what she went through to get it.
All he wants is to find the woman.
He’ll have to go through bikers, cops, crooks, and low-life muscle.
If she’s ok, he’ll walk away. If she’s not … he’ll stop at nothing.
Best advice: stay out of his way.
Although the Jack Reacher novels can be read in any order, The Midnight Line follows on directly from the end of Make Me.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
“Sometimes you woke up, and you knew for sure … that the brand new day would bring nothing good at all.” From the desolate wilds of Wyoming to a criminal empire run out of an Iowa laundromat, The Midnight Line digs deep into the dark underbelly of America’s heartland. Lee Child’s slow-burn thriller not only challenges Jack Reacher’s deductive skills but tests his stubborn code of honour as he tracks down a traumatised veteran from the war in Afghanistan. What follows is a mystery that confronts the insidious impact of the U.S. opioid epidemic—and one that may surprise fans of Child's blockbuster hero with its weary sense of melancholy.
