#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The incomparable hero of Jack Reacher: Never Go Back takes readers to school in his most explosive novel yet. After eleven straight global #1 bestsellers, discover the thrillers that The New York Times calls “utterly addictive.”

Don’t miss a sneak peek of Lee Child’s new novel, The Midnight Line, in the back of the book.

It’s 1996, and Reacher is still in the army. In the morning they give him a medal, and in the afternoon they send him back to school. That night he’s off the grid. Out of sight, out of mind.

Two other men are in the classroom—an FBI agent and a CIA analyst. Each is a first-rate operator, each is fresh off a big win, and each is wondering what the hell they are doing there.

Then they find out: A Jihadist sleeper cell in Hamburg, Germany, has received an unexpected visitor—a Saudi courier, seeking safe haven while waiting to rendezvous with persons unknown. A CIA asset, undercover inside the cell, has overheard the courier whisper a chilling message: The American wants a hundred million dollars.”

For what? And who from? Reacher and his two new friends are told to find the American. Reacher recruits the best soldier he has ever worked with: Sergeant Frances Neagley. Their mission heats up in more ways than one, while always keeping their eyes on the prize: If they don’t get their man, the world will suffer an epic act of terrorism.

From Langley to Hamburg, Jalalabad to Kiev, Night School moves like a bullet through a treacherous landscape of double crosses, faked identities, and new and terrible enemies, as Reacher maneuvers inside the game and outside the law.

Praise for Night School

“Another timely tour de force . . . The taut thriller is textbook [Lee] Child: fast-paced and topical with a ‘ripped from the headlines’ feel.”—Minneapolis Star-Tribune
 
“As gripping as ever.”The Florida Times-Union

Praise for #1 bestselling author Lee Child and his Jack Reacher series

“Reacher [is] one of this century’s most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes.”—The Washington Post

  • Was this written by Lee Childs?

    Ok, so it wasn't exactly a train wreck but I had to go back and look at the cover a few times to see if Lee Child actually wrote this. I've read every Reacher book in the series and I have to say, this one lacks the same high quality work. For example, a healthy sex life is ok, but this time it went a little over the top. A couple of X rated scenes so be careful not to leave it on your chair with the kids around. Long stretches of dialogue punctuated by a couple of fist and fire fights. I gotta say, I was glad when I got to the end.

    Becoming increasingly formulaic but Reacher still worthwhile.
  • Early Reacher - great writing

    Ah, such a nice read. Jack is back or actually it is early Reacher, before Jack's main adventures. And one of Lee Child's better written books about Reacher and I've read them all. Now what do I do till the next one comes around in a year or so.
  • Ok

    Enjoyed this book along with all of Child's previous books. What I missed a bit was Reachers usual physical pounding of the bad guys. There were one or two weak moments in an otherwise great story line. For example after finding Wiley's apartment with his possessions and a statement that he had not yet left town, no one was smart enough to say "let's leave someone here should Wiley return," which he did. Someone should have picked this out and reworded that scene. Also no need for Jack to have sex. Doesn't work into the story or ad to the story in fact it detracts from the story. This is an action adventure story not a love story. Child did a great job of coming up with a plausible reason for what's worth a $100 million. I know I was hard pressed to come up with what it might be. Would highly recommend this book to all Reacher fans and all who want an entertaining read. Thanks again Lee Child.
