Gone Tomorrow: (Jack Reacher 13) - Jack Reacher (Paperback)Lee Child (author)
- In stock online
Suicide bombers are easy to spot. They give out all kinds of tell-tale signs. There are twelve things to look for. No one who has worked in law enforcement will ever forget them.New York City. The subway, two o'clock in the morning. Jack Reacher studies his fellow passengers. Four are OK. The fifth isn't.
The train brakes for Grand Central Station. Will Reacher intervene, and save lives?
Or is he wrong? Will his intervention cost lives - including his own?
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’.

"Has the switchback plotting and frictionless prose that are Child's trademarks... His lone-wolf habits and brusque, technophobic decodings of the world are always a pleasure" - Guardian
"Enhances his status as a mythic avenger... You'll be left with a thumping heart and a racing pulse but, be warned, Chapter 63 will give you nightmares" - Evening Standard
"Read this before you read any other new thriller, as the master of suspense and action is back on scorching form" - Shortlist magazine
"Lee Child's Jack Reacher books are among the most popular crime novels right now - they're good fun and super-tense...One of his best" - Heat
"So good at what he does... Much of the guilty pleasure delivered by Mr Child's books comes from their fine-tuned, obsessively deducted use of data... culminates in a blow-by-blow, stunningly well-choreographed showdown... effortlessly larger than life" - The New York Times

What you would expect from a Lee Child - Jack Reacher novel. Fast paced, tight story line. More blood than usual but in this one it seems more personal for JR.
I'm not usually squeamish - generally the more gore the better - but the extreme violence in this book got to me after a while. Basically, Jack Reacher just stampedes through the novel leaving piles of broken... More
Although this book is readable and not exactly boring, I don't really have anything good to say about it. Reacher as a character is completely unbelievable. He seems to be the tallest, strongest, cleverest,... More
