The Hero Audiobook

The Hero

Author: Lee Child Narrator: Jeff Harding Release Date: November 2019

THE ENDURING MYTH THAT MAKES US HUMAN What makes a hero? Who better to answer that question than Lee Child... 'It's Lee Child. Why would you not read it?' Karin Slaughter 'I don't know another author so skilled at making me turn the page' The Times In his first work of nonfiction, the creator of the multimillion-selling Jack Reacher series explores the endurance of heroes from Achilles to Bond, showing us how this age-old myth is a fundamental part of what makes us human. He demonstrates how hero stories continue to shape our world - arguing that we need them now more than ever. From the Stone Age to the Greek Tragedies, from Shakespeare to Robin Hood, we have always had our heroes. The hero is at the centre of formative myths in every culture and persists to this day in world-conquering books, films and TV shows. But why do these characters continue to inspire us, and why are they so central to storytelling? Scalpel-sharp on the roots of storytelling and enlightening on the history and science of myth, The Hero is essential reading for anyone trying to write or understand fiction. Child teaches us how these stories still shape our minds and behaviour in an increasingly confusing modern world, and with his trademark concision and wit, demonstrates that however civilised we get, we'll always need heroes.

Blue Moon: (Jack Reacher 24) Audiobook

Blue Moon: (Jack Reacher 24)

Author: Lee Child Narrator: Jeff Harding Release Date: October 2019

Brought to you by Penguin. Jack Reacher is back in a brand new white-knuckle read from Lee Child, creator of 'today's James Bond, a thriller hero we can't get enough of' (Ken Follett). In a nameless city, two ruthless rival criminal gangs, one Albanian, the other Ukrainian, are competing for control. But they hadn't counted on Jack Reacher arriving on their patch. Reacher is trained to notice things. He's on a Greyhound bus, watching an elderly man sleeping in his seat, with a fat envelope of cash hanging out of his pocket. Another passenger is watching too ... obviously hoping to get rich quick. As the mugger makes his move, Reacher steps in. The old man is grateful, yet he turns down Reacher's offer to help him home. He's vulnerable, scared, and clearly in big, big trouble. What hold could the gangs possibly have on the old guy? Will Reacher sit back and let bad things happen? Or can he twist the situation to everyone's benefit? 'This is a random universe,' he says. 'Once in a blue moon things turn out just right.' The odds are better with Reacher involved. That's for damn sure.

The Midnight Line Audiobook

The Midnight Line

Author: Lee Child Narrator: Dick Hill Release Date: November 2017

#1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child returns with a gripping new powerhouse thriller featuring Jack Reacher, "one of this century's most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes" (The Washington Post). Reacher takes a stroll through a small Wisconsin town and sees a class ring in a pawn shop window: West Point 2005. A tough year to graduate: Iraq, then Afghanistan. The ring is tiny, for a woman, and it has her initials engraved on the inside. Reacher wonders what unlucky circumstance made her give up something she earned over four hard years. He decides to find out. And find the woman. And return her ring. Why not? So begins a harrowing journey that takes Reacher through the upper Midwest, from a lowlife bar on the sad side of small town to a dirt-blown crossroads in the middle of nowhere, encountering bikers, cops, crooks, muscle, and a missing persons PI who wears a suit and a tie in the Wyoming wilderness. The deeper Reacher digs, and the more he learns, the more dangerous the terrain becomes. Turns out the ring was just a small link in a far darker chain. Powerful forces are guarding a vast criminal enterprise. Some lines should never be crossed. But then, neither should Reacher. Praise for #1 bestselling author Lee Child and his Jack Reacher series "There's a reason why Child is considered the best of the best in the thriller genre."-Associated Press "Jack Reacher is today's James Bond."-Ken Follett

The Midnight Line: (Jack Reacher 22) Audiobook

The Midnight Line: (Jack Reacher 22)

Author: Lee Child Narrator: Jeff Harding Release Date: November 2017

Random House presents the audio edition of The Midnight Line: (Jack Reacher 22) by Lee Child, read by Jeff Harding. Jack Reacher takes an aimless stroll past a pawn shop in a small Midwestern town. In the window he sees a West Point class ring from 2005. It's tiny. It's a woman cadet's graduation present to herself. Why would she give it up? Reacher's a West Pointer too, and he knows what she went through to get it. Reacher tracks the ring back to its owner, step by step, down a criminal trail leading west. Like Big Foot come out of the forest, he arrives in the deserted wilds of Wyoming. All he wants is to find the woman. If she's OK, he'll walk away. If she's not ... he'll stop at nothing. He's still shaken by the recent horrors of Make Me, and now The Midnight Line sees him set on a raw and elemental quest for simple justice. Best advice: don't get in his way. 'Each year Lee Child comes up with another Reacher. Each year I lap it up. Love it... Best one for a while... there is something subversive as well as page-turning... The sentences are short, but that doesn't mean the thinking is small... I don't know another author so skilled at making me turn the page, at putting me in the thick of it all.' - The Times 'I just read the new Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child... It is as good as they always are. I read every single one.' - Malcolm Gladwell 'Addictive... Child's trademark staccato-style delivers all-action excitement as well as a sombre message about the hypocrisy of the US war on drugs.' - Metro
