More Description

Ex-military Jack Reacher returns in this breathtaking new thriller by an author praised for his "great style and careful plotting" (The New York Times.)

Critics nationwide acclaimed Killing Floor, Lee Child's suspense debut, as "a tough, compelling thriller with characters who jump off the page" (Houston Chronicle). "Brilliantly written", agreed Playboy. "Striking", applauded The Chicago Tribune. "An unsettling trip that leaves your brain buzzing and your stomach knotted", warned The Philadelphia Inquirer. "Relentlessly suspenseful", The Denver Post concurred.

In a quiet Chicago suburb, a dentist is attacked in his office parking lot and forced into the trunk of his Lexus. On a sidewalk downtown, Jack Reacher and an unknown woman are abducted in broad daylight. Wordlessly and without warning, two armed men -- confident, rehearsed, tense -- hustle them into the same sedan. Then Reacher and the woman are switched into a second vehicle and hauled away, leaving the dentist bound and gagged inside his car with the woman's abandoned possessions, two gallons of gasoline...and a burning match.

Building on this harrowing start, Lee Child brings us another novel of nonstop high-speed suspense. Die Trying confirms his sizable talent and the magnetic appeal of Reacher, a hero who "seems like someone with plenty of tales to tell" (The Philadelphia Inquirer). Fortunately for us, he is and he will.
