A Wanted Man
The new Reacher thriller for 2012, which takes place shortly after the end of Worth Dying For.
When you're as big and rough as Jack Reacher - and you have a badly-set, freshly-busted nose, patched with silver duct tape - it isn't easy to hitch a ride. But Reacher has some unfinished business in Virginia, so he doesn't quit. And at last, he's picked up by three strangers - two men and a woman.
But within minutes it becomes clear they're all lying about everything - and then they run into a police roadblock on the highway. There has been an incident, and the cops are looking for the bad guys…
Will they get through because the three are innocent? Or because the three are now four? Is Reacher just a decoy?
With his signature Swiss-watch plotting and heart-thumping suspense, A Wanted Man shows Lee Child at his sublimely skilful best.

"The indefatigable Jack Reacher once again makes this a Lee Child thriller to be savoured."
- The New Age
"Not being one to shy away from doing the right thing, Reacher soons finds himself at the heart of a far-reaching terror plot and trying his best to escape the clutches of the law who doubt he is on their side. Another winner. Now when's the next one?"
- Lindsay Slogrove, Daily News
"All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride. He has tied himself to a massive conspiracy that makes him a threat - to both sides at once."
