Editorial Reviews

Review

“Child is one writer who should never be taken for granted.”The New York Times Book Review
 
“[Lee Child] shows no signs of slowing down. . . . Reacher is a man for whom the phrase moral compass was invented: His code determines his direction. . . . You need Jack Reacher.”The Atlantic
 
“Superb . . . Child neatly interweaves multiple narratives, ratchets up the suspense (the reveal of the motel plot is delicious), and delivers a powerful, satisfying denouement. Fans will enjoy learning more of this enduring character’s roots, and Child’s spare prose continues to set a very high bar.”Publishers Weekly (boxed and starred review)
 
“Another first-class entry in a series that continues to set the gold standard for aspiring thriller authors.”Booklist (starred review)
 
“With his usual flair for succinctness and eye for detail, Child creates another rollicking Reacher road trip that will please fans and newcomers alike.”Library Journal (starred review)
 
“Cerebral . . . One doesn’t want Mr. Child’s storytelling to end. . . . Get your copy soon before Past Tense sells out. Then enjoy the ride.”New York Journal of Books
 
“The way everything winds up for all the participants shows a satisfying generosity of storytelling spirit.”Kirkus Reviews
