BESTSELLERS LEE AND ANDREW CHILD IN CONVERSATION WITH TIM AYLIFFE
In this latest Jack Reacher thriller, a murder is staged to look like an accident. Two witnesses have two different accounts. One sees a woman throw herself in front of a bus. The other witness is Jack Reacher. And he sees what really happened – a man pushed the victim to her death. Reacher follows the killer and walks straight into danger. Tim Ayliffe finds out more in conversation with Lee and Andrew Child.
This event will be pre-recorded so send through your questions for Lee and Andrew now to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gerrardsville, Colorado. One tragic event. Two witnesses. Two conflicting accounts. Jack Reacher sees what actually happened – a man in grey hoodie and jeans, swift and silent as a shadow, pushed the victim to her death, before grabbing her bag and sauntering away.
Reacher follows the killer, not knowing that this was no random act of violence. It is part of something much bigger…a sinister, secret conspiracy, with powerful people on the take, enmeshed in an elaborate plot that leaves no room for error. If any step is compromised, the threat will have to be quickly and permanently removed.
