Reviews

"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
