Overview

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

In this eBook exclusive short story from Lee Child, Jack Reacher is again on the move. But even a pleasant hike on a beautiful summer day turns into a walk on the wild side . . . and perhaps something far more sinister.

Don’t miss a gripping preview of Lee Child’s highly anticipated new Jack Reacher novel, Personal!


Jack Reacher is on the road, hitching a ride with some earnest young Canadians who are planning a hike through some of the last unspoiled wilderness in North America in the dense forests of Maine. They part ways after sharing a hot meal, and Reacher checks out a quiet town surrounded by countryside serene enough to cool even his raging wanderlust. But not for long. First the trail is suddenly and inexplicably closed. Then the military police show up in force. Maybe it’s a drill. Or maybe it’s trouble—the kind of trouble that always finds Reacher, no matter how far he travels off the beaten path.

Praise for Lee Child and his Jack Reacher novels

“Welcome to the relentless world of Jack Reacher and his impressive tendency to be in the wrong place at the right time. . . . Child has created an iconic character that other thriller writers try to emulate but don’t come close to matching.”—Associated Press

“The Reacher novels are easily the best thriller series going.”—NPR

“Child is a superb craftsman of suspense.”—Entertainment Weekly

“The truth about Reacher gets better and better.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times

“If you’re a thriller fan and you’re not reading the Reacher series, you’re not a thriller fan.”—Chicago Tribune

“[A] feverishly thrilling series . . . With Child, you can always count on furious action.”—The Miami Herald

“Irresistible Reacher remains just about the best butt-kicker in thriller-lit.”—Kirkus Reviews

Love Jack Reacher novels, even the short stories BUT this book did not do it for me. I think this was just an attempt to make some money without real effort. Lee Child, I am disappointed in you.

Very disappointed. Lacked any real storyline. Reacher wasn't developed in the slightest and he's one of my all time favorite characters. Expected so much more than what I got.

I love Jack Reacher books but this short story was not a good one. Even though it is $1.99 don't waste your money just to get a sneak preview of a book that is coming out in a couple of weeks. If you haven't read the other short stories they are good and worth the money.

Simply terrible. No plot, no action, no ending, no dialogue, no nothing.If Reacher wasn't in this story, I would have quit reading it after 2 minutes, but since he is, it's ended up as one of the worst short stories I have ever read.

Too short a story. At 39 pages, this needs to be twice as long to develop into something. Interesting idea, tossing detainees from a plane. I always thought they should have a big smokey fire at Gitmo.

Unlike some reviews I thought there was a plot and character devrlopment. Always enjoy Jack Reacher adventures!

Another great Jack Reacher short story. Reacher always finds the reasons for whatever has happened and makes the decisions as needed.
