Lee Child

Born Jim Grant on 29 October, 1954 in Coventry, Jack Reacher author Lee Child chose his pen name after making the decision to pursue a career in writing following redundancy from his work in TV. He chose 'Lee' as part of a family joke and 'Child' so that his books would sit between Raymond Chandler and Agatha Christie on the shelves of bookshops - exactly where he sees his novels.

Lee Child's debut novel Killing Floor was a bestseller and won the Anthony Award for Best First Novel. Since then, he has won numerous awards and sold over 100 million copies in 99 countries and 42 languages. Lee Child starts writing a new book on 1 September every year and now lives in New York State. A huge fan of Aston Villa Football Club, he drinks over 30 cups of coffee every day!

    Jack Reacher has no place to go, and all the time in the world to get there, so a remote rail road stop on the prairie with the curious name of Mother's Rest seems perfect for an aimless one-day stopover. He expects to find a lonely pioneer tombstone in a sea of nearly-ripe wheat...but instead there is a woman waiting for a missing colleague, a cryptic note about two hundred deaths, and a small town full of silent, watchful people. Reacher's one-day stopover turns into an open-ended quest leading to the most hidden reaches of the internet, and right into the nightmare heart of darkness. "Child's best for some time...with detective-story and romcom elements (even sly humour) on top of the psychological duels and set-piece violence." (Sunday Times).
