Slaves of Socorro

When the Heron brotherband become the Skandian duty ship to the Kingdom of Araluen, they’re excited at the challenges ahead. Hal, Stig, Thorn and the Herons eagerly set off for the trip – with an unexpected new crew member aboard.

Cover for Jack Reacher’s new book revealed – and this time, it’s Personal

Jack Reacher is back this September for another high octane adventure in Personal, Lee Child’s 19th book in the bestselling series.

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?
