Book Overview: The Affair

Everything starts somewhere. For elite military cop Jack Reacher, that somewhere was Carter Crossing, Mississippi, way back in 1997.

Reacher is ordered undercover to investigate the murder of a young woman. Evidence points to a U.S. soldier with powerful friends. Once in Carter Crossing, Reacher meets local sheriff Elizabeth Deveraux, who has a thirst for justice and an appetite for secrets. Uncertain they can trust each other, they reluctantly join forces. Reacher works to uncover the truth, while others try to bury it forever. The conspiracy threatens to shatter his faith in his mission-- and turn him into a man to be feared.

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.
