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?

‘It’s said that a Jack Reacher novel is bought every four seconds somewhere in the world… Lee Child’s genius has been to create a tough guy hero that men will envy and women will adore’ Daily Express
By addictive bestseller Lee Child, the brand new, action-packed, high-tension Jack Reacher thriller, which sees Reacher, at the end of his long journey, honing in on his target in Virginia at last…
After an epic and interrupted journey all the way from the snows of South Dakota, Jack Reacher has finally made it to Virginia. His destination: a sturdy stone building a short bus ride from Washington D.C., the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP.
It was the closest thing to a home he ever had.
Why? He wants to meet the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner. He liked her voice on the phone. But the officer sitting behind Reacher’s old desk isn’t a woman.
Why is Susan Turner not there?
What Reacher doesn’t expect is what comes next. He himself is in big trouble, accused of a sixteen-year-old homicide.
And he certainly doesn’t expect to hear these words:
‘You’re back in the army, Major. And your ass is mine.’
Will he be sorry he went back? Or – will someone else?

Nebraska – and Jack Reacher, huge, hulking and with a freshly busted nose, is still trying to hitch a ride east to Virginia.
He’s picked up by three strangers – two men and a woman.
Immediately he knows they’re all lying about something – and then they run into a police roadblock on the highway.
But they get through.
Because the three are innocent?
Or because the three are now four?
Is Reacher a decoy?

Down below you’ll find the trailer for the new movie – JACK REACHER.
Tom Cruise has wowed us as an actor with his range – he gave us the grin in Risky Business, Top Gun, Cocktail and Jerry Maguire, he lost the use of his legs in Born on the Fourth of July, gave us too much info in Eyes Wide Shut, swore like a trooper in Magnolia, found the cold hearted creep within in the documentary Collateral, did fat and bald in Tropic Thunder and now in Jack Reacher, his most challenging role to date, he gives us… tall?
Nicole won an Oscar by acting the hell out of a prosthetic nose. Tom Cruise is a shoo-in if he can pull off acting TALL.

Worth Flying For – Tuesday, 23 November 2010
A man walks into a mystery convention….
Okay, so you enjoy reading the Reacher novels. This fictional character is tall and heavy, I’m tall and heavy, he’s blonde with blue eyes, so am I, he was a cop of sorts for thirteen years and mustered out of the army as an officer, I’m still in the army as an officer and have been a cop for 11 years. Reacher enjoys a life free from responsibility and restrictions, he has no car, no fixed address, no wife and children… neither do I. So, reading about a character who enjoys this peripatetic lifestyle is a great way to relax, the ideal escapism when the life of investigating real life crime becomes more disturbing than fiction.
