"'Good' thrillers exist in a class of their own.'.They enfold the reader in a credible plot fraught with danger and adrenaline, spiced with violence and the redemption of the hero. . . . The point of such a book is total escape, and Tripwire fills the bill. [It] makes the reader sit back and gasp with both wonder and understanding." – The Denver Post
People say that knowledge is power. The more knowledge, the more power. Suppose you knew the winning numbers for the lottery? All of them? Not guessed them, not dreamed them, but really knew them? What would you do? You would run to the store. You would mark those numbers on the play card. And you would win. Same for the stock market. Same for basketball, same for the horses, whatever. If you could predict the future, you'd be home free. Same for anything. Same for killing people...
So begins Running Blind, the electrifying new novel in the critically acclaimed, award-winning series featuring ex-military policeman Jack Reacher.
Women are dying. Women who have nothing in common except the fact they once worked for the military. And they knew Jack Reacher years ago. How and why these women are in danger baffles the elite FBI team working the case. There is no trace evidence.
There are no obvious links among the victims. The bodies have no fatal wounds, and few distinguishing marks. And the killer has entered and exited their homes like a summer breeze. Are these the perfect crimes? And what is the motivation behind such deadly care and precision? There is only one certainly: A new kind of killer is at work, one so calm and cautious that even the brilliant Jack Reacher is left running blind.
Running Blind is Lee Child's fourth novel featuring Jack Reacher. Killing Floor, his debut, won two awards for best first mystery, and was nominated for two more. Foreign rights in the series have been sold in twenty-seven territories. Child is a native of England and a former television writer. He lives outside New York City, where he is at work on his next Jack Reacher thriller.
