5 Things You’ll Want To Know About Lee Child’s Book

The countdown is really on now! We’re just about a week away from the release of Deep Cover Jack on September 1 and 2, 2016. I’m starting to think about how I’m going to celebrate. Release dates are on a Thursday and Friday, which bodes well for a weekend celebration. Hmmm… the stars might be aligning!

So what is Deep Cover Jack, anyway?

A little background in case you’re new to this blog: I write the Hunt for Jack Reacher spin off series using Lee Child’s Jack Reacher books as source material, with Lee Child’s support and incredible generosity.

I use a Lee Child book as source material for each of my Hunt for Jack Reacher novels. For Don’t Know Jack, the source book is Killing Floor. For Get Back Jack, the source book is Bad Luck and Trouble.  For Jack and Joe, it’s The Enemy. And the source material for Deep Cover Jack is Persuader.

So here’s a crash course in Lee Child’s Persuader before reading Deep Cover Jack.

Persuader Lee Child

First, the synopsis of Persuader, followed by 5 things you need to know about the book:

The ultimate loner. An elite ex-military cop who left the service years ago, he’s moved from place to place … without family … without possessions … without commitments. And without fear. Which is good, because trouble—big, violent, complicated trouble—finds Reacher wherever he goes. And when trouble finds him, Reacher does not quit, not once, not ever. But some unfinished business has now found Reacher. And Reacher is a man who hates unfinished business. Ten years ago, a key investigation went sour and Francis Xavier Quinn got away with murder. Now a chance encounter outside Boston’s Symphony Hall brings it all back. Now Reacher sees his one last shot. Some would call it vengeance. Some would call it redemption. Reacher would call it justice.

5 Things You’ll Want to Know About Lee Child’s Persuader:

  1. Susan Duffy is an FBI team leader who recruits Jack Reacher to solve her off-the-books problem. But, despite Reacher’s attraction to her, he has other priorities, and he’s relentless.
  2. Jack Reacher stages a kidnapping, which is a killing mission in disguise.

  3. Reacher investigates an Oriental rug business which is a front for illegal activity in the fictional town of Abbot, Maine.

  4. We learn, once again, that Reacher can be trusted to follow his own agenda.

  5. Jack Reacher does not quit. Not once, not ever.

 

You certainly don’t need to have read Lee Child’s books before reading and enjoy my books. I’ve been working on Deep Cover Jack for more than two years, and I hope you’ll love it!

Inside Human Trafficking: Part 1

As I planned, researched, and wrote Deep Cover Jack, it quickly became clear that we’d be dealing with some pretty heavy topics in this book. That’s often the case when writing thrillers, but this newest Hunt for Jack Reacher thriller, required research on human trafficking.  Human trafficking is defined in the Trafficking Protocol as: “the recruitment, transport, […]

Investing in Gold: Silly, Sound or Criminal?

Research for my thrillers usually takes some wild and crazy turns. Every book is sparked by an idea or an event and then, after a while, it can grow into a great story. Such was the case when one of my friends told me at lunch a couple of years ago that she was investing […]

Hemingway’s Secret Getaway: #Michigan

I think it goes without saying: Ernest Hemingway’s most famous home is the one in Key West, Florida. But as a snowbird, I’ve got feelers up here in Michigan, and I’m at least as familiar with Hemingway’s time around the Great Lakes State as I am with his famous Key West home. Hemingway was born in […]
