"Child has somehow forged that magical grail: a new and believable hero. Reacher is strong, tall, principled and a quiet master in unarmed combat… when we thought all the heroes had been written"
"Reacher could take out Bond, Dirty Harry, Jason Bourne and Ethan Hunt with both hands tied behind his back. And then sleep with their girlfriends two at a time before getting the last bus out of town… simply irresistible"
"An iconic modern thriller hero: the ultimate loner... Fast, compelling and with that nugget of poignancy that sets [him] apart"
"An abundance of intelligence and surprise… a first-class thriller"
