Ex-military Jack Reacher returns in this breathtaking new thriller by an author praised for his "great style and careful plotting" (The New York Times.)

Critics nationwide acclaimed Killing Floor, Lee Child's suspense debut, as "a tough, compelling thriller with characters who jump off the page" (Houston Chronicle). "Brilliantly written", agreed Playboy. "Striking", applauded The Chicago Tribune. "An unsettling trip that leaves your brain buzzing and your stomach knotted", warned The Philadelphia Inquirer. "Relentlessly suspenseful", The Denver Post concurred.

In a quiet Chicago suburb, a dentist is attacked in his office parking lot and forced into the trunk of his Lexus. On a sidewalk downtown, Jack Reacher and an unknown woman are abducted in broad daylight. Wordlessly and without warning, two armed men -- confident, rehearsed, tense -- hustle them into the same sedan. Then Reacher and the woman are switched into a second vehicle and hauled away, leaving the dentist bound and gagged inside his car with the woman's abandoned possessions, two gallons of gasoline...and a burning match.

Building on this harrowing start, Lee Child brings us another novel of nonstop high-speed suspense. Die Trying confirms his sizable talent and the magnetic appeal of Reacher, a hero who "seems like someone with plenty of tales to tell" (The Philadelphia Inquirer). Fortunately for us, he is and he will.

display_description Jack Reacher finds himself in bad company in the second novel in Lee Child's New York Times bestselling series.
Jack Reacher is an innocent bystander when he witnesses a woman kidnapped off a Chicago street in broad daylight. In the wrong place at the wrong time, he's kidnapped with her. Chained together, locked in the back of a stifling van, and racing across America to an unknown destination for an unknown purpose, they're at the mercy of a group of men demanding an impossible ransom. Because this mysterious woman is worth more than Reacher ever suspected. Now he has to save them both—from the inside out—or die trying...
