Synopsis

Make Me by Lee Child

Jack Reacher has no place to go, and all the time in the world to get there, so a remote rail road stop on the prairie with the curious name of Mother's Rest seems perfect for an aimless one-day stopover. He expects to find a lonely pioneer tombstone in a sea of nearly-ripe wheat...but instead there is a woman waiting for a missing colleague, a cryptic note about two hundred deaths, and a small town full of silent, watchful people. Reacher's one-day stopover turns into an open-ended quest leading to the most hidden reaches of the internet, and right into the nightmare heart of darkness. Child's best for some time...with detective-story and romcom elements (even sly humour) on top of the psychological duels and set-piece violence. (Sunday Times).

Reviews

'Child's best for some time: an enhancement of the old formula, with detective-story and romcom elements (even sly humour) on top of the psychological duels and set-piece violence.' Sunday Times

'Typically blunt and energetic...precisely judged.' Independent

'Lee Child's Reacher series has hit Book No. 20 with a resounding peal of wisecracking glee ( Are you going to be a problem?I'm already a problem. The question is, what are you going to do about it? ). Everything about it...is as strong as ever...Make Me is a hot one.' -- Janet Maslin New York Times

'Breathless and bloody...You can't help lapping it up.' Evening Standard

'The fights are convincing and the dialogue is as brilliant as always.' Literary Review

About the Author

Lee Child

Lee Child is one of the world’s leading thriller writers. His novels consistently achieve the number one slot in hardback and paperback on bestsellers lists on both sides of the Atlantic, and are translated into over forty languages. His debut novel, Killing Floor, was written after he was made redundant from his television job in Manchester, and introduced his much-admired maverick hero, the former military cop Jack Reacher. Born in Coventry, he now lives in America.

The 2013 Crime Writers’ Association Diamond Dagger was awarded to Lee Child.

Members of the CWA vote for the Diamond Dagger award-winner, which celebrates an author with an outstanding body of work in crime fiction.

Peter James, chair of the CWA, said: “I am delighted that the CWA has chosen Lee Child as this year's recipient. Lee is one of the few British crime-thriller authors to have become a global brand name; he is also an extremely charming and open person and a tireless promoter of our genre.”
