One Shot (Jack Reacher #9)
|Series:||Jack Reacher Ser.|
Six shots. Five dead. One heartland city thrown into a state of terror. But within hours the cops have it solved: a slam-dunk case. Except for one thing. The accused man says: You got the wrong guy. Then he says: Get Reacher for me. And sure enough, ex-military investigator Jack Reacher is coming. He knows this shooter -- a trained military sniper who never should have missed a shot. Reacher is certain something is not right -- and soon the slam-dunk case explodes. Now Reacher is teamed with a beautiful young defense lawyer, moving closer to the unseen enemy who is pulling the strings. Reacher knows that no two opponents are created equal. This one has come to the heartland from his own kind of hell. And Reacher knows that the only way to take him down is to match his ruthlessness and cunning -- and then beat him shot for shot. "Compelling, furiously paced." -- Los Angeles Times "Crackles with excitement." -- St. Petersburg Times "Pure adrenaline, from its well-constructed setup to its explosive, unforgettable finale." -- The Miami Herald

"Jack Reacher is irresistible" Observer "Hot, indomitable... knockout" New York Times "The thing about Lee Child's books is that you can't put the damn things down" Independent on Sunday "Child's strengths are fast-moving dialogue and gripping action sequences ... The excitement lasts from the first to the final page" Evening Standard "The Jack Reacher series of thrillers...are all hugely exciting, and knowledgeable about weapons and technology. They exude a powerful sense of right and wrong ... We've seen him as a right of wrongs and always as God's gift to women" Literary Review
Lee Child is one of the world's leading thriller writers. His novels consistently achieve the number one slot in hardback and paperback on bestsellers lists on both sides of the Atlantic, and are translated into over forty languages. His debut novel, Killing Floor, was written after he was made redundant from his television job in Manchester, and introduced his much-admired maverick hero, the former military cop Jack Reacher. Born in Coventry, he now lives in America.
