In 21 internationally bestselling thrillers since 1997, Lee Child has chronicled the exploits of Jack Reacher, a former military police major who unleashes his formidable training, skills, and cunning as he brings to justice nefarious plotters of all kinds. As his newest book debuts, Child speaks with NPR host Linda Wertheimer about the inspiration behind the Reacher novels, his writing process, and the latest story in the series, The Midnight Line (Delacorte Press).
Reacher’s new adventure is sent in motion by his discovery of a woman’s West Point class ring in a pawn shop window. The ring turns out to be a small, incidental part of something far darker—a vast criminal enterprise with powerful forces guarding a lucrative supply chain—and Reacher, of course, won’t rest until wrongs are righted.
Pre-signed copies of The Midnight Line are included in the ticket price; a signing is not part of the program.
