NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Get ready for the ultimate Jack Reacher experience: a thrilling new novella and eleven previously published stories, together for the first time in one pulse-pounding collection from Lee Child. No Middle Name begins with Too Much Time, a brand-new work of short fiction that finds Reacher in a hollowed-out town in Maine, where he witnesses a random bag-snatching but sees much more than a simple crime. Small Wars takes readers back to 1989, when Reacher is an MP assigned to solve the brutal murder of a young officer found along an isolated forest road in Georgia--and whose killer may be hiding in plain sight. In Not a Drill, Reacher tries to take some downtime, but a pleasant hike in Maine turns into a walk on the wild side--and perhaps something far more sinister. High Heat time-hops to 1977, when Reacher is a teenager in sweltering New York City during a sudden blackout that awakens the dark side of the city that never sleeps. Okinawa is the setting of Second Son, which reveals the pivotal moment when young Reachers sharp lizard brain becomes just as important as his muscle. In Deep Down, Reacher tracks down a spy by matching wits with four formidable females--three of whom are clean, but the fourth may prove fatal. Rounding out the collection are Guy Walks into a Bar, James Penneys New Identity, Everyone Talks, The Picture of the Lonely Diner, Maybe They Have a Tradition, and No Room at the Motel. No suitcase. No destination. No middle name. No matter how far Reacher travels off the beaten path, trouble always finds him. Feel bad for trouble. Praise for No Middle Name Captivating . . . classic [Lee] Child . . . This volume demonstrates what his fans already know: hes a born storyteller and an astute observer. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) Lee Child, like his creation, always knows exactly what hes doing--and he does it well. Time in his company is never wasted. -- Evening Standard

Lee Child

Lee Child a longtemps travaillé pour la télévision britannique, et son premier roman, publié en 1997, a connu un succès immédiat. Une quinzaine de romans plus tard, il est devenu une référence du roman d'action et son super héros Jack Reacher, un modèle du genre. Il vit aujourd'hui entre les Etats-Unis et la France.
