Gone Tomorrow (Jack Reacher #13)
|Series:||Jack Reacher Ser.|
New York City. Two in the morning. A subway car heading uptown. Jack Reacher, plus five other passengers. Four are okay. The fifth isn't.
In the next few tense seconds Reacher will make a choice-and trigger an electrifying chain of events in this gritty, gripping masterwork of suspense by #1 New York Times bestseller Lee Child.
Susan Mark was the fifth passenger. She had a lonely heart, an estranged son, and a big secret. Reacher, working with a woman cop and a host of shadowy feds, wants to know just how big a hole Susan Mark was in, how many lives had already been twisted before hers, and what danger is looming around him now.
Because a race has begun through the streets of Manhattan in a maze crowded with violent, skilled soldiers on all sides of a shadow war. Susan Mark's plain little life was critical to dozens of others in Washington, California, Afghanistan . . . from a former Delta Force operator now running for the U.S. Senate, to a beautiful young woman with a fantastic story to tell-and to a host of others who have just one thing in common: They're all lying to Reacher. A little. A lot. Or maybe just enough to get him killed.
In a novel that slams through one hairpin surprise after another, Lee Child unleashes a thriller that spans three decades and gnaws at the heart of America . . . and for Jack Reacher, a man who trusts no one and likes it that way, it's a mystery with only one answer-the kind that comes when you finally get face-to-face and look your worst enemy in the eye.
Jack Reacher faces his most implacable enemy yet, in the double number one bestseller Lee Child.
"Has the switchback plotting and frictionless prose that are Child's trademarks... His lone-wolf habits and brusque, technophobic decodings of the world are always a pleasure" Guardian "Enhances his status as a mythic avenger... You'll be left with a thumping heart and a racing pulse but, be warned, Chapter 63 will give you nightmares" Evening Standard "Read this before you read any other new thriller, as the master of suspense and action is back on scorching form" Shortlist magazine "Lee Child's Jack Reacher books are among the most popular crime novels right now - they're good fun and super-tense...One of his best" Heat "So good at what he does... Much of the guilty pleasure delivered by Mr Child's books comes from their fine-tuned, obsessively deducted use of data... culminates in a blow-by-blow, stunningly well-choreographed showdown... effortlessly larger than life" The New York Times
Lee Child is British, but after he was made redundant from his job in television, he moved with his family from Cumbria to the United States to start a new career as a writer of American thrillers. He now divides his time between France and New York. All his novels feature the maverick Jack Reacher, and all have been international bestsellers.
