Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Jack Reacher returns in another fast-moving, action-packed, suspenseful book from Lee Child.
 
You can leave the army, but the army doesn’t leave you. Not always. Not completely, notes Jack Reacher—and sure enough, the retired military cop is soon pulled back into service. This time, for the State Department and the CIA.
 
Someone has taken a shot at the president of France in the City of Light. The bullet was American. The distance between the gunman and the target was exceptional. How many snipers can shoot from three-quarters of a mile with total confidence? Very few, but John Kott—an American marksman gone bad—is one of them. And after fifteen years in prison, he’s out, unaccounted for, and likely drawing a bead on a G8 summit packed with enough world leaders to tempt any assassin.
 
If anyone can stop Kott, it’s the man who beat him before: Reacher. And though he’d rather work alone, Reacher is teamed with Casey Nice, a rookie analyst who keeps her cool with Zoloft. But they’re facing a rough road, full of ruthless mobsters, Serbian thugs, close calls, double-crosses—and no backup if they’re caught. All the while Reacher can’t stop thinking about the woman he once failed to save. But he won’t let that that happen again. Not this time. Not Nice.
 
Reacher never gets too close. But now a killer is making it personal.

BONUS: This edition includes the short story "Not a Drill" and an excerpt from Lee Child's Make Me.

Praise for Personal
 
“The best one yet.”—Stephen King
 
“Reacher is the stuff of myth, a great male fantasy. . . . One of this century’s most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes . . . Child does a masterly job of bringing his adventure to life with endless surprises and fierce suspense.”—The Washington Post
 
“Yet another satisfying page-turner.”—Entertainment Weekly
 
“Reacher is always up for a good fight, most entertainingly when he goes mano a mano with a seven-foot, 300-pound monster of a mobster named Little Joey. But it’s Reacher the Teacher who wows here.”—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times
 
“Jack Reacher is today’s James Bond, a thriller hero we can’t get enough of. I read every one as soon as it appears.”—Ken Follett
 
“Reacher’s just one of fiction’s great mysterious strangers.”Maxim
 
“If you like fast-moving thrillers, you’ll want to take a look at this one.”—John Sandford

    If I were to list all the things I expect when reading a Reacher book, having my mind wander and finding myself a little bit bored would not normally be included. This book, however, just didn't grab me like virtually every other book in the series. The plot was interesting, if typically ludicrous, but I just had a hard time paying attention or even caring in parts. I hope this isn't the start of a trend, but this one just wasn't my favorite.

    I love the Jack Reacher series and hope many of them will be made into movies. I know the purists don't particularly like Tom Cruise playing Reacher but I think he displays the right amount of swagger. All that being said, I think this book was "mailed in" by Lee Child or ghost written. The style doesn't match any of the previous novels.
  • Awesome

    I am still trying to get through this very boring book. It is by far the worst of Jack Reacher. No action all just boring stuff that I read to put me to sleep. Only gave it three stars hoping the next will be better. I'm always waiting for the next one but sorry I bought this one. Hope you haven't killed Jack with this one Mr. Child
  • Classic Reacher

    I have read most of the Reacher books and this was not up to the caliber of most of the others.
