Lee Child

Lee Child is the model of an author living their dream. Finding himself out of work in the mid-nineties, the ex-television presentation director Jim Grant – the ‘Lee Child’ was yet to come – turned to writing, his anger of his redundancy from Granada Television fuelling his narrative. Soon, the drifting ex-cop Jack Reacher was born, the ultimate, rootless American hero, out only to help those who cannot help themselves.

Signed Edition

From number one bestseller Lee Child, the thrilling new blockbuster featuring hero Jack Reacher.

Reacher, the eternal drifter, happens by chance on the small New Hampshire town he remembers his father was supposed to have come from. But when he starts looking for his dad's old home, he finds there's no record of anyone named Reacher ever having lived there.

Waterstones have been following the nail-biting exploits of Jack Reacher since he first loped into town in Killing Floor in 1997, a striking figure standing at 6ft5 all dirty-blond hair, with a chip on his shoulder and a lethal ability. His creator Lee Child lays claim to the fact that every second somewhere in the world somebody buys one of his novels.

He starts every new novel on the same date, the 1st September and has managed to keep fans coming back for more every time, he says of thriller-writing ‘It's the only real genre and all the other stuff has grown on the side of it like barnacles’.

Biography

His 1997 debut Killing Floor soon hoovered up accolade – winning a string of awards – and by the turn of the millennium, the now Lee Child was attaining bestseller status. His consistent output of a Lee Child thriller per year built a fanbase always yearning for more, and Child’s 2011 win of the Theakston's Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award for 61 Hours spoke volumes for his raw skill as a writer.

2015’s Reacher Said Nothing, Andy Martin’s almost Boswellian insight to Lee Child’s approach to writing the series, is both a witty and essential read for the Lee Child fan. And his fans are legion: as the legendary Haruki Murakami declared, “I like Lee Child. So far I’ve read ten of them.”


“My number one.”  - Ken Follett

“I always seize the latest Lee Child with pleasure.” - Philip Pullman

“I am such a Lee Child addict… to noir roughly what Paradise Lost was to poetry.” -  Malcolm Gladwell
