$9.99

Book Overview: Personal

Someone has tried to kill the French president. How many snipers can shoot from three-quarters of a mile with total confidence? John Kott--a U.S. Army marksman gone bad--is one of them. After fifteen years in prison, he's out . . . and there's a G8 summit coming up, packed with enough world leaders to tempt any assassin.

If anyone can stop Kott, it's the man who beat him before: Jack Reacher. And though he'd rather work alone, Reacher is teamed with rookie analyst Casey Nice. They're facing a rough road, full of local thugs, double-crosses, and no backup if things go wrong. Reacher never gets too close. But this time it's personal.

This edition includes the bonus short story "Not a Drill."

Lee Child, born as James Dover Grant on October 29, 1954, is a renowned British author best known for his gripping thriller series featuring the character Jack Reacher. Child's grasp on the thriller genre, engaging narrative style, and meticulously constructed suspense have placed him among the pantheon of esteemed international authors. Since debuting his writing career in 1997, Child has penned more than twenty novels, many of which have landed on the New York Times bestseller list and been translated into several languages. Despite being born in Coventry, England, Child's stories predominantly unfold in American settings. Prior to his writing career, he worked at Granada Television for sixteen years. In 1995, following corporate restructuring, he was laid off from his job. This turn of events prompted him to explore writing as a career, a decision that bore fruit as the first novel “Killing Floor”, released in 1997, quickly gained critical acclaim and won the Anthony Award for Best First Novel. Across his multifaceted career, Child's writing prowess has been decorated with several prestigious awards. Yet he stays grounded and continues to contribute outstanding works to the thriller genre. His authorship skills have not only expanded the landscape of thriller literature but have also been instrumental in shaping our understanding and appreciation of suspenseful storytelling.
