Publisher Description

Before Jack Reacher became the seminal, nomadic hero he is today and #1 New York Times bestselling writer Lee Child reached his current iconic literary stature, there was James Penney, who we meet in this intense Thriller Short. Originally published in THRILLER: Stories to Keep You Up All Night, edited by James Patterson, in 2006.

Penney was originally envisioned as a character in Child’s second Jack Reacher tale, Die Trying. Though an interesting character, Penney was ultimately excised during the editing process and readers didn’t have the pleasure of meeting him.

Now he’s been resurrected in a tale that features a brief glimpse of Jack Reacher’s early career. Don’t miss this heart-pumping tale of suspense!

James’s Penny New Identity Lee Child

This novella is about a factory worker named James Penny and introduces the authors most well known character, Jack Reacher. Penny, a Viet Nam veteran has worked 17 years in a factory and is laid off with a number of other workers. He sets his house on fire which also caused his neighbors to catch fire and hits the road in his treasured firebird which is stolen from the parking lot of a cheap hotel he was staying at. He is forced to hitch hike and is picked up by Jack Reacher a military MP. Reacher gives him a new identity with papers from a body in his trunk. An enjoyable read!!

Terrible.

Terrible, what a waste of money for fans. I have been reading these books for decades and what a horrible way to make money off of Reacher fans.

False Claim

Although this books claims to be 400 pages, It is actually a 40-page excerpt from a previously published book - a serious misrepresentation in my view.
