#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER •  Lee Child returns with a gripping new powerhouse thriller featuring Jack Reacher, “one of this century’s most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes” (The Washington Post).

BONUS: Includes a sneak peek of Lee Child’s new novel, Past Tense.

Reacher takes a stroll through a small Wisconsin town and sees a class ring in a pawn shop window: West Point 2005. A tough year to graduate: Iraq, then Afghanistan. The ring is tiny, for a woman, and it has her initials engraved on the inside. Reacher wonders what unlucky circumstance made her give up something she earned over four hard years. He decides to find out. And find the woman. And return her ring. Why not?

So begins a harrowing journey that takes Reacher through the upper Midwest, from a lowlife bar on the sad side of small town to a dirt-blown crossroads in the middle of nowhere, encountering bikers, cops, crooks, muscle, and a missing persons PI who wears a suit and a tie in the Wyoming wilderness.

The deeper Reacher digs, and the more he learns, the more dangerous the terrain becomes. Turns out the ring was just a small link in a far darker chain. Powerful forces are guarding a vast criminal enterprise. Some lines should never be crossed. But then, neither should Reacher.

Praise for The Midnight Line
“Puts Reacher just where we want him.”The New York Times Book Review

“A gem.”Chicago Tribune
“A timely, suspenseful, morally complex thriller, one of the best I’ve read this year . . . Child weaves in a passionately told history of opioids in American life. . . . Child’s outrage over it is only just barely contained.”The Philadelphia Inquirer
“A perfect example of Lee Child’s talent . . . Lee Child is the master of plotting. . . . This is Child’s most emotional book to date. . . . This is not just a good story; it is a story with a purpose and a message.”Huffington Post
“I just read the new Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child. . . . It is as good as they always are. I read every single one.”Malcolm Gladwell

  • Midnight line - what else, another great Reacher story

    From FernyD
    While not as combative or action-related as some other episodes, I really enjoyed this story. And learned a lot about opioids and the devastating effects on lives. Already looking for the next one.

    Boring and repetitive until the end. Lee child is way better than this and His next book needs to have way more substance. I have read all his books and this one is a real disappointment. The next one will determine whether I keep buying his books.

  • Midnight Line.

    From HugoMay15
    Enjoyed the latest Reacher book. I found it a good read. I just wish that the Reacher movies would show Reacher as he is, tall, big and imposing ... sigh.
  • Reacher rolls on, and on.

    From richvanc1
    Always good to have Reacher along with a story to tell But, as with some other of Lee Child’s novels, there is a lot of filler. There could be some more substance to get me fully entertained.
  • Enjoyable read

    From BardHad
    Great start but mid way through becomes a bit flat and ending is too quick and easy for Jack. Have noticed that the last few books. If you are a Reacher fan you have to read.

    We have read all Lee Child Reacher books, We as my husband and myself, We thoroughly enjoy all the books, It came out on tuesday and and we purchased it and had it finished today which is Thursday. Thank you for all your work and investigating on all subjects. We like that you brought forward what alot of Veterans go through, we knew very little about drugs and what they can do to you and how they are used for different problems. Thank you for our reading pleasure Mary and Joe Smith
