Heralding a new dawn for Jack Reacher, The Sentinel is co-written by Lee Child and his younger brother Andrew - but never fear, our favourite moral avenger is still in muscular form, stepping in to right the wrongs done to a band of country musicians.
The edge-of-your-seat, heart-in-mouth new Jack Reacher thriller for 2020 - his 25th adventure. No one's bigger than Jack Reacher.
Jack Reacher gets off the bus in a sleepy no-name town outside Nashville, Tennessee. He plans to grab a cup of coffee and move right along.
Not going to happen.
The town has been shut down by a cyber attack. At the centre of it all, whether he likes it or not, is Rusty Rutherford. He's an average IT guy, but he knows more than he thinks.
As the bad guys move in on Rusty, Reacher moves in on them . . .
And now Rusty knows he's protected, he's never going to leave the big man's side.
Reacher might just have to stick around and find out what the hell's gone wrong . . . and then put it right, like only he can.

One of the many great things about Jack Reacher is that he's larger than life while remaining relatable and believable. The Sentinel shows that two Childs are even better than one.' - James Patterson
'I loved The Sentinel! Classic Reacher, great story. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. I do love the spare writing style, the descriptions, Reacher's responses to threats. Joyous stuff. I hope there will be many more Reachers to come.' - Conn Iggulden
'The one man revenge machine seems revitalised. Great stuff.' - Sun
'Thoroughly entertaining . . . when the world is crumbling, it's good to have some of Reacher's brutal certainties back.' - The Times
'It's great to be back in Reacher's company in a world where the bad guys get what's coming to them. A smooth transition for a much-loved character.' - Observer
'The collaboration here produces vintage Reacher.' - Financial Times
'Reacher is satisfyingly ice cold in combat and full of good human feelings when necessary. It works.' - Literary Review
'Lots of action . . . one of the most inventive action sequences in recent memory . . . [The Sentinel] continues the series without any sense that there's now a coauthor. In a year of drastic change, fans will welcome the consistency.' - Publishers Weekly
'Fresh, perfectly plotted, and packed with action, The Sentinel is one of the year's best, must-read thrillers . . . and proves that this series is primed to continue on at the highest level for many years to come.' - The Real Book Spy
'If this novel is a harbinger of what's to come, then Jack is in good hands.' - Booklist

“The worst Jack Reacher novel”
I have been an avid fan of Jack Reacher from the beginning. I loved the early Jack Reacher we saw in Echo Burning and The Visitor. That Jack Reacher was nowhere to be found in this novel.
The story was convoluted,... More
Very poor, certainly doesn't read like a Lee Child book. Won't buy another if written in conjunction with anyone else.
