Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY LOS ANGELES TIMES, THE GUARDIAN, AND SUSPENSE MAGAZINE • Stephen King calls Jack Reacher “the coolest continuing series character”—and now he’s back in this masterly new thriller from Lee Child.

“Why is this town called Mother’s Rest?” That’s all Reacher wants to know. But no one will tell him. It’s a tiny place hidden in a thousand square miles of wheat fields, with a railroad stop, and sullen and watchful people, and a worried woman named Michelle Chang, who mistakes him for someone else: her missing partner in a private investigation she thinks must have started small and then turned lethal.

Reacher has no particular place to go, and all the time in the world to get there, and there’s something about Chang . . . so he teams up with her and starts to ask around. He thinks: How bad can this thing be? But before long he’s plunged into a desperate race through LA, Chicago, Phoenix, and San Francisco, and through the hidden parts of the internet, up against thugs and assassins every step of the way—right back to where he started, in Mother’s Rest, where he must confront the worst nightmare he could imagine.

Walking away would have been easier. But as always, Reacher’s rule is: If you want me to stop, you’re going to have to make me.

Praise for Make Me

“Child’s Reacher series has hit Book No. 20 with a resounding peal of wisecracking glee. Everything about it, starting with Reacher’s nose for bad news, is as strong as ever. . . . The big guy’s definitely on the upswing. The guy who writes about him is too.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times

“Another winner . . . There’s a reason why Child is considered the best of the best in the thriller genre: He can take all these strange elements and clichés and make them compelling and original.”—Associated Press

“A superb thriller.”—New York Daily News

“Child’s complete command of the story makes this thriller work brilliantly.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“I’ve read all twenty of Lee Child’s novels. Maybe there’s something wrong with me. But I can’t wait for the twenty-first.”—Malcolm Gladwell, The New Yorker

“[The Reacher series] is the current gold standard in the genre. . . . In Make Me Lee Child delivers another Jack Reacher specialty; the total knockout.”Dayton Daily News

“Child serves up wingding plots, pithy dialogue, extraordinary background on intriguing topics, and cunningly constructed suspense. But what keeps us coming back—by the millions—is the chance to walk around in the skin of that big guy in the middle of everything.”The Oregonian

“A dark thriller . . . Lee Child’s Make Me, the twentieth in his wildly popular Jack Reacher series, delivers exactly what readers have come to expect from the perennial bestselling author: interesting characters, tight plots and page-turning action. . . . Readers won’t be disappointed.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Jack Reacher is back. . . . Readers new to this series will find this book a good starting point, and fans will be pleased to see Jack again.”LibraryReads (Top Ten Pick)

“The reigning champ ups the ante.”Booklist (starred review)

    Had been pining for another Reacher reading adventure since reading whole series back to back ... At buddies barbershop a customer came in & I saw Lee Childs name sticking out of his backpack "Is that a New one finally?".. Yup... So straight home -and bride did the download version..grr I love my hard copy.( yet nothing gets u to restart reading ..like that I-Pad cracking you in the head reading in bed) This tale was "ok", but rarely created spine tingling suspense as others in collection had. My hope is the next one rekindles the fire, suspense, and cocky action of our favourite ex military superman drifter with a code to intervene with rough justice, when others whither away
  • Enjoyed it

    Not as "guns a blazing" as some of Reachers stories but enjoyed it as always.

    At the top of his game Lee Child did not disappoint. Make Me is one of the best Jack Reacher novels I have read. Definitely a shocker of an ending and should be made into a movie. Just not with Tom Cruise as Reacher. Cruise is too short and not built the way Reacher is described by Lee Child.
  • Excellente!

    Enjoyed more than last two books. This is more like the original Jack Reacher. Better story line and better written. Thought Lee Child had played himself out but this book restores my faith in him. Look forward to his next. Let's see if he can keep up the pace.
  • Not his best

    This book was a bit off. Jack wasn't himself. I kept thinking that Jack might be not survive the book, that he was getting old and tired and that Lee was tired of writing. The plot was slow to develop and was very dark and somewhat sad when it finally did develop. I think I'll wait for the reviews before I by another. Sorry Lee, but this just wasn't a 10.

    I have read all of Lee Child's books. I was disappointed by the last one and again with this one. Lots of repetition trying to make the book longer than it needs to be. Character development was poor and weak. Reacher's action was limited and it's the hero in him fighting for the underdog that makes him such a great character.
  • Great Book

    It is hard to find books I really enjoy, this is a good one. Problem is, now I have to wait a long time for the next one.
  • Why so expensive?

    I love the Jack Reacher series. I have bought every one, most in print rather than electronic. I must admit I am unwilling to pay $18.99 for an electronic version that I can only read on an Apple device. For that price, they should be mailing me a paperback. So sad.
