Jack Reacher. Hero. Loner. Soldier. Soldier’s son. An elite military cop, he was one of the army’s brightest stars. But in every cop’s life there is one case that changes everything. For Jack Reacher, this is that case.

New Year’s Day, 1990. In a North Carolina motel, a two-star general is found dead. His briefcase is missing. Nobody knows what was in it. Within minutes Reacher has his orders: Control the situation. Within hours the general’s wife is murdered. Then the dominoes really start to fall.

Somewhere inside the vast worldwide fortress that is the U.S. Army, Reacher is being set up as a fall guy with the worst enemies a man can have. But Reacher won’t quit. He’s fighting a new kind of war—against an enemy he didn’t know he had. And against a conspiracy more chilling, ingenious, and treacherous than anyone could have guessed.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[Child has] the good. This author’s Jack Reacher novels pack a ‘Dirty Harry’ wallop…The Enemy is tight and effective…Even the minor characters in this book have a tough panache…[Reacher] emerges as a classic noir loner, and a very charismatic one…Lean, dynamic storytelling.” New York Times
“The military setting feels authentic and the dialogue dead-on…Riveting.” Boston Globe
“A thriller that gallops at a breakneck pace.” Chicago Sun-Times
“A great addition to the series.” Globe and Mail (Toronto)
“The best showcase of Child’s talent to date…One of the best thriller writers at work.” Rocky Mountain News
The Enemy sizzles with suspense and action. Child sets a breathless pace.” Orlando Sentinel
“A rip-roaring read from the first page to the last.” St. Petersburg Times
“[Jack Reacher is]…the thinking reader’s action hero: a surprisingly tender combination of chess master and G.I. Joe.” Seattle Times
“Will keep you guessing.” Playboy
“Child has created a wonderfully tough, resourceful hero in Jack Reacher…Reacher is still one of the two or three most compelling figures in the new hard-guy, lone-wolf genre.” Daily News
“A fabulously suspenseful prequel…[Lee Child’s] best so far.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Textured, swift, and told in Reacher’s inimitably tough voice…Child has few peers in thrillerdom.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Compelling…Known for hold-your-breath action scenes, Child proves equally adept at portraying how a criminal investigation uses the smallest of building blocks to construct a compelling circumstantial case. Combine that with finely textured relationships—always an extra dimension in this series—and you have a novel that takes Child in a new direction, but does so flawlessly.” Booklist (starred review)
