Jack Reacher hunts the hunter in the third novel in Lee Child's #1 New York Times bestselling series.

Ex military policeman Jack Reacher is enjoying the lazy anonymity of Key West when a stranger shows up asking for him. He's got a lot of questions. Reacher does too, especially after the guy turns up dead. The answers lead Reacher on a cold trail back to New York, to the tenuous confidence of an alluring woman, and the dangerous corners of his own past.

"Child grabs hold with the first page and won't let go until the finish. This is pulse-pounding suspense, and Child hardly misses a beat."-- The Arizona Daily Star

"Good thrillers exist in a class of their own. The point of such a book is total escape and Tripwire fills the bill. A bang-up finale which makes the reader sit back and gasp with both wonder and understanding."-- The Denver Post

"Not only bang-on suspense but an insightful look into how humans work."-- Houston Chronicle

"A stylish thriller as complex and disturbing as its hero."--Stephen White

"A tightly-drawn and swift thriller that gives new meaning to what a page-turner should be."--Michael Connelly

"Page for page, there's probably more fisticuffs in a Lee Child thriller than anywhere else."-- Chicago Tribune

"When you put a good villain together with a great hero like Jack Reacher...the result is a thriller good to the last drop. (Child) does a great job of balancing good and evil, and certainly Hobie ranks up there with some of the most memorable villains."-- The Orlando Sentinel

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.
