For Jack Reacher being invisible has become a habit. He spends his
days digging swimming pools by hand and his nights as the bouncer
in the local strip club in the Florida Keys. He doesn't want to
be found. But someone has sent a private detective to seek him out.
Then Reacher finds the guy beaten to death with his fingertips
sliced off. It's time to head north and work out who is trying
to find him and why.
"A slickly effective thriller which confirms Child's ability to keep the reader guessing - and sweating" The Times "A fast-moving, violent and gripping mystery with a very bad baddie, and a tough, pragmatic hero in Jack Reacher" Daily Telegraph "Lee Child continues his meteoric rise and mastery of suspense with Tripwire. It's a tightly-drawn and swift thriller that gives new meaning to what a page-turner should be" -- Michael Connelly "Establishes Child in the premier division. Taut, with more than a touch of sweet romance, this is dangerously compulsive, so be warned - don't start it at bedtime or you'll be up all night" Manchester Evening News "Good thrillers exist in a class of their own. The point of such a book is total escape and Tripwire fills the bill... includes a bang-up finale which makes the reader sit back and gasp with both wonder and understanding" Denver Post
