The Visitor (Jack Reacher #4)
|Author:||Lee Child; Jeff Harding (Read by)|
|Series:||Jack Reacher Ser.|
"The Visitor offers an efficient mix of hard-boiled style with lots of lip and a revival of the classic locked-room mystery. . .Tight plotting, pace and high mileage." (Guardian)
Sergeant Amy Callan and Lieutenant Caroline Cooke have a lot in common.
Both were army high-flyers. Both were aquainted with Jack Reacher. Both were forced to resign from the service.
Now they're both dead.
Found in their own homes, naked, in a bath full of paint.
Apparent victims of an army man. A loner, a smart guy with a score to settle, a ruthless vigilante.
A man just like Jack Reacher.
Although the Jack Reacher novels can be read in any order, The Visitor is 4th in the series.
Lee Child's fourth unputdownable thriller starring Jack Reacher features a chilling serial killer.
"'Reacher is as dyed-in-the-wool an American action man as Hollywood could hope for...manages that tough trick of seeming at once battle-hardened, footloose, sexy and compassionate: the sort of ladies' man that Peter Millar, The Times" The Times "'Within a short space of time, Child has gleaned enviable recognition for his tautly written thrillers...This tale will ensure that many a train stop is missed'" The Good Book Guide "'In three novels Lee Child has established a franchise with his maverick drifter, the ex-US military cop Jack Reacher, and shown that, for an Englishman, he can produce passable American. His fourth, The Visitor, offers an efficient mix of hard-boiled style with lots of lip and a revivial of the classic locked-room mystery...Tight plotting, pace and high mileage'" Guardian "'Relentlessly fast-paced and beautifully structured...Amply fulfils the promise of its predecessors. Reacher is the sort of hero no woman could help falling for, and he looks destined to have a very long life'" Daily Mail "'A thumping good read...This is an excellent thriller of the Patricia Cornwell variety. Gripping and well-constructed...Impossible to put down'" Daily Express
Lee Child is one of the world's leading thriller writers. His novels consistently achieve the number one slot in hardback and paperback on bestsellers lists on both sides of the Atlantic, and are translated into over forty languages. His debut novel, Killing Floor, was written after he was made redundant from his television job in Manchester, and introduced his much-admired maverick hero, the former military cop Jack Reacher. Born in Coventry, he now lives in America.
