about this item

NO. 1 INTERNATIONALBESTSELLERJack Reacher returns in the latest fast-moving, action-packed, suspenseful book from Lee Child.You can leave the army, but the army doesn’t leave you. Not always. Not completely,notes Jack Reacher—and sure enough, the retired military cop is soon pulled back into service. This time, for the State Department and the CIA.Someone has taken a shot at the president of France in the City of Light. The bullet was American. The distance between the gunman and the target was exceptional. How many snipers can shoot from three-quarters of a mile with total confidence? Very few, but John Kott—an American marksman gone bad—is one of them. And after fifteen years in prison, he’s out, unaccounted for, and likely drawing a bead on a G8 summit packed with enough world leaders to tempt any assassin.If anyone can stop Kott, it’s the man who beat him before: Reacher. And though he’d rather work alone, Reacher is teamed with Casey Nice, a rookie analyst who keeps her cool with Zoloft. But they’re facing a rough road, full of ruthless mobsters, Serbian thugs, close calls, double-crosses—and no backup if they’re caught. All the while Reacher can’t stop thinking about the woman he once failed to save. But he won’t let that that happen again. Not this time. Not Nice.Reacher never gets too close. But now a killer is making it personal.Praise for Personal“The best one yet.”—Stephen King“Reacher is the stuff of myth, a great male fantasy. . . .

But it’s Reacher the Teacher who wows here.”—Marilyn Stasio,The New York Times“Jack Reacher is today’s James Bond, a thriller hero we can’t get enough of. I read every one as soon as it appears.”—Ken Follett“Reacher’s just one of fiction’s great mysterious strangers.”Maxim“If you like fast-moving thrillers, you’ll want to take a look at this one.”—John Sandford“Fans won’t be disappointed by this suspense-filled, riveting thriller.”Library Journal(starred review)“Child is the alpha dog of thriller writers, each n
