About This Book
Jack Reacher.

The ultimate loner.

An elite ex-military cop who left the service years ago, he’s moved from place to place…without family…without possessions…without commitments.

And without fear. Which is good, because trouble—big, violent, complicated trouble—finds Reacher wherever he goes. And when trouble finds him, Reacher does not quit, not once…not ever.

But some unfinished business has now found Reacher. And Reacher is a man who hates unfinished business.

Ten years ago, a key investigation went sour and someone got away with murder. Now a chance encounter brings it all back. Now Reacher sees his one last shot. Some would call it vengeance. Some would call it redemption. Reacher would call it…justice.

    The Hard Way

    The Hard Way
    A Jack Reacher Novel
    Jack Reacher was alone, the way he liked it, soaking up the hot, electric New York City night, watching a man cross the street to a parked Mercedes and drive it away. The car contained one million dollars in ransom money because Edward Lane, the man who paid it, would do anything to get his family back. Lane runs a highly illegal soldiers-for-hire operation. He will use any tool to find his beautiful wife and child. And Jack Reacher is the best manhunter in the world. On the trail of vicious kidnappers, Reacher learns the chilling secrets of his employer’s past—and of a horrific drama in the heart of a nasty little war. He knows that Edward Lane is hiding something. Something dirty. Something big. But Reacher also knows this: He’s already in way too deep to stop now. And if he has to do it the hard way, he will.

    Jack Reacher: One Shot (Movie Tie-in Edition)
    A Novel
    Now a major motion picture   “Electrifying . . . This series [is] utterly addictive.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times   Six shots. Five dead. One heartland city thrown into a state of terror. But within hours the cops have it solved: a slam-dunk case. Except for one thing. The accused man says: You got the wrong guy. Then he says: Get Reacher for me.   And sure enough, ex–military investigator Jack Reacher is coming. He knows this shooter—a trained military sniper who never should have missed a shot. Reacher is certain something is not right—and soon the slam-dunk case explodes.   Now Reacher is teamed with a beautiful young defense lawyer, moving closer to the unseen enemy who is pulling the strings. Reacher knows that no two opponents are created equal. This one has come to the heartland from his own kind of hell. And Reacher knows that the only way to take him down is to match his ruthlessness and cunning—and then beat him shot for shot.   “Pulse-pounding action.”—Chicago Sun-Times   “Compelling, furiously paced.”—Los Angeles Times   “Crackles with excitement.”—St. Petersburg Times   “Pure adrenaline, from its well-constructed setup to its explosive, unforgettable finale.”—The Miami Herald

    Bad Luck and Trouble
    A Jack Reacher Novel
    #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER   “Electrifying . . . This series [is] utterly addictive.” —Janet Maslin, The New York Times   “[An] action-packed thrill ride.”—Chicago Tribune   From a helicopter high above the California desert, a man is sent free-falling into the night. On the streets of Portland, Jack Reacher is pulled out of his wandering life and plunged into the heart of a conspiracy that is killing old friends . . . and the people he once trusted with his life.   Reacher is the ultimate loner—no phone, no ties, no address. But a woman from his old military unit has found him using a signal only the eight members of their elite team would know. Then she tells him a terrifying story about the brutal death a man they both served with. Soon Reacher is reuniting with the survivors of his team, scrambling to unravel the sudden disappearance of two other comrades. But Reacher won’t give up—because in a world of bad luck and trouble, when someone targets Jack Reacher and his team, they’d better be ready for what comes right back at them.   “A slam-bang yarn filled with Child’s usual terse life-and-death lessons.”—Entertainment Weekly   “A breathless, ultra-cool novel with relentless pacing.”—The Plain Dealer   “Tension-packed . . . one of the most enjoyable of the Reacher thrillers.”—Orlando Sentinel
