Jack 'No Middle Name' Reacher, lone wolf, knight errant, ex-military cop, lover of women, scourge of the wicked and righter of wrongs, is the most iconic hero for our age. This is the first time all Lee Child's shorter fiction featuring Jack Reacher has been collected into one volume.
A brand-new novella, Too Much Time, is included along with every Reacher short story that Child has written so far: Second Son, High Heat, Deep Down, Small Wars, James Penney's New Identity, Everyone Talks, Not a Drill, Maybe They Have a Tradition, Guy Walks Into a Bar, No Room at the Motel, and The Picture of the Lonely Diner.
Together, these twelve stories shed new light on Reacher's past, illuminating how he grew up and developed into the wandering avenger who has captured the imagination of millions around the world.
