Make me

Make me

Child, Lee, author

Jack Reacher has no place to go, and all the time in the world to get there, so a remote railroad stop with the curious name of Mother's Rest seems perfect for an aimless one-day stopover. He expects to find a lonely tombstone in a sea of nearly-ripe wheat, but instead there is a woman waiting for a missing private investigator, a cryptic note about 200 deaths, and a small town full of silent, watchful people. His one-day stopover looks about to turn into something more complicated

Reviews

"Child'sbestfor some time: an enhancement of the old formula, withdetective-storyandromcomelements (even slyhumour) on top of thepsychologicalduels and set-pieceviolence."
Sunday Times||"Typically blunt andenergetic...preciselyjudged."
Independent||"Lee Child's Reacher series has hit Book No. 20 with a resounding peal ofwisecracking glee("Are you going to be a problem?" "I'm already a problem. The question is, what are you going to do about it?"). Everything about it...is asstrongas ever....Make Me is ahotone."
New York Times||"Breathlessandbloody...You can't help lapping it up."
