His is an ironclad storytelling ethos, a gift for narrative that grips like the proverbial vice... Reacher, as ever, is sui generis - a violent force for good set down by the author to eliminate evil and move on. But what counts is Child's ability to keep the reader turning the pages.

As a warrior who lacks a car, credit card, phone or weapon of his own, and has no continuing human ties or home, he is even more of a lone, denuded outsider than Lisbeth Salander, the heroine of Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy.

Worth queuing up for - Sun
Explosive as ever - Daily Mirror
