Personal Synopsis

Jack Reacher walks alone. Once a go-to hard man in the US military police, now he's a drifter of no fixed abode. But the army tracks him down. Because someone has taken a long-range shot at the French president. Only one man could have done it. And Reacher is the one man who can find him. This new heart stopping, nail biting book in Lee Child's number-one bestselling series takes Reacher across the Atlantic to Paris - and then to London. The stakes have never been higher - because this time, it's personal.

The Good Book Guide Review

Crime fiction can take its time, teasing the reader with withheld revelations; but you’ll find none of that with Child. The British writer is a master of accelerando tempo, with his consistently pulse-raising Jack Reacher novels, locales shot through with a pithy sense of the American landscape, and vividly drawn characters. In the eventful company of the ex-military cop, Personal, is an exhilarating ride – for both Jack and the reader. It finds him drifting, comme d’habitude, this time along the West Coast, when he is summoned to Europe to track down an assassin. A bullet has been fired at the President of France, but the murderous job isn’t finished – and hopefully won’t be if Jack Reacher gets involved. If the plot has echoes of Frederick Forsyth’s The Day of the Jackal, it’s none the worse for that; it’s the best Reacher adventure in some considerable time.

Personal Press Reviews

Consistently pulse-raising...Personal wrests back the sheer gusto of earlier novels; it's the best Reacher adventure in some considerable time. Independent This is the 19th Jack Reacher novel. I've read all the others. If you haven't, start now. You can binge-read them all in three weeks. But then you will be sad. Because you'll have to wait for a year for the next one. They are blissfully pedantic whodunnits. And also seriously violent thrillers...[Child] is so good. He makes literary writing seem orotund...He generates relentless momentum...Child's dedication to suspense...approaches the Hitchcockian. Guardian Packed with arcane and fascinating detail...Child's almost trademarked and seriously addictive clipped prose and dialogue keeps Personal clipping along at breakneck pace with the tension ratcheting up satisfactorily to the inevitably bloody conclusion. Irish Independent
