Make Me: (Jack Reacher 20) - Jack Reacher (Paperback)Lee Child (author)
- 10+ in stock
"Child's best for some time...with detective-story and romcom elements (even sly humour) on top of the psychological duels and set-piece violence." (Sunday Times)
Jack Reacher has no place to go, and all the time in the world to get there.
A remote railroad stop on the prairie with the curious name of Mother's Rest seems perfect for an aimless one-day stopover. He expects to find a lonely pioneer tombstone in a sea of nearly-ripe wheat.
Instead there is a woman waiting for a missing colleague, a cryptic note about two hundred deaths, and a small town full of silent, watchful people.
Reacher's one-day stopover turns into an open-ended quest leading to the most hidden reaches of the internet, and right into the nightmare heart of darkness.
Although the Jack Reacher novels can be read in any order, Make Me is 20th in the series.
And be sure not to miss Reacher's newest adventure, no.26, Better off Dead! ***OUT NOW***

“Jack Reacher’s back, in his best adventure for years…”
There’s a truism, wrong in my view, that all Reacher books are the same. Fair enough, there’s a murder, fair enough, our Jack will have to bust some heads to bring things to a conclusion, and fair enough he usually... More
This is the first time I have read a Lee Child Jack Reachet novel. It was a good read but I did find it a bit slow in places.
“lee child make me”
I have read all the jack reacher books and this has got to be the slowest and worst of them all. I kept reading hoping it would get better but was very disappointed in the lack of the normal jack reacher action.
