'There's only one Jack Reacher. Accept no substitutes.' Mick Herron

March 1997. A woman has her throat cut behind a bar in Mississippi.

Just down the road is a big army base. Is the murderer a local guy - or is he a soldier?

Jack Reacher, still a major in the military police, is sent in undercover.

The county sheriff is a former U.S. Marine - and a stunningly beautiful woman. Her investigation is going nowhere. Is the Pentagon stonewalling her? Or is she trying not to find the killer?

Set just six months before the opening of Killing Floor, The Affair marks a turning point in Reacher's career.

If he does what the army wants, will he be able to live with himself? And if he doesn't, will the army be able to live with him?

Although the Jack Reacher novels can be read in any order, The Affair is 16th in the series.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Just when you thought it couldn't possibly get any better, Lee Child pulls Jack Reacher out of another hole and, bang, he produces nothing short of a thriller masterpiece... Here, we get what we've been waiting for... the story of how Reacher became Reacher -- Henry Sutton * Daily Mirror *
Jack Reacher has long since earned his prominent place in the pantheon of cool, smart-talking American heroes... Shakes up the status quo by delivering the Reacher creation myth... stealthily funny... this book is really about the man himself -- Janet Maslin * The New York Times *
With its revelations and its bonk-fest, it's an unabashed fan-pleaser, but also a timely, reassuring wallow in the undiluted essence of Reacher * Telegraph *
Child on top of his game. It could well be his best book yet... The paradox of Reacher is that he is both a great big grizzly bear of a fighter... and a thinker, both Schwarzenegger and Socrates. Make love and war is his credo * Independent *
Just finished The Affair. As always, hero Reacher grabs me on page one and never lets go. Right now Lee Child is my No1 thriller writer -- Ken Follett (on Twitter)
