The official website of Lee Child and Jack Reacher
It's almost Halloween and we've got goodies! A new Reacher novel,
fantastic podcasts, tour info, a FREE e-book and the perfect Reacher
beverage to enjoy all the while. Read on...
You all know THE MIDNIGHT LINE is on sale November 7th -
but did you know it's got so many 5 star reviews that we've stopped
counting? It also made Library Reads' Top 10, and we hear this might be
Lee's best Reacher novel so far. The story and characters stay with you
long after you're done reading.
Lee IS going on tour; find info here: EVENTS. If you can't make a signing, you can
pre-order a signed copy from any of the bookstores hosting events, some
of your favorite specialty bookshops and, as always, you may order a
signed/inscribed book from The Mysterious Bookshop in NYC (contact info
at the bottom of the website Events page).
Have you ever wanted to share a steaming pot of coffee with Reacher? Now

was hand-picked and taste-tested by Lee. It's a rich, delicious blend,
roasted the day of order, ground to your specification and available for
While you're drinking coffee (Lee drinks coffee all day long, just like
Reacher) why not listen to some great podcasts?
Rob Taub and Lee discuss The Midnight Line in an interview that

of the novel when you get your hands on it. If you don't have the free
SoundCloud app, download it HERE.
In the second podcast, author David Torrans talks with Lee about his Belfast background, Irish writers
and their storytelling legacy. Not only is this interview fascinating but
who doesn't love listening to an Irish brogue and Lee's mellow Brummie
