Little is known of the plot, with Child writing a short teaser on his Facebook page last week:
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 time, it’s personal.
Even with this small tease, we’re excited. Lee Child seems to compete constantly with himself, trying to top his previous book with each new one and usually does so.
Whispers say that large parts of Personal will be set in Child’s native England, as well as the US and France.
In 2014, will we see the Jack Reacher story get a little more, well, personal?
