LET’S GET PERSONAL WITH LEE CHILD, SHALL WE?
Personally, I look up to Lee Child (In more ways than one! The dude’s a foot taller than me! See photo below.) He writes riveting stories, he’s a great friend, and, of course, Jack Reacher is the source material for my Hunt for Jack Reacher series, which I write with Lee Child’s permission. (You can read more about that venture HERE.)
In my Hunt for Jack Reacher thriller, Jack in the Green, FBI Special Agents Kim Otto and Carlos Gaspar get personal with Reacher:
“What they had learned about Reacher was that even though he could kill from a distance at any time, he preferred to handle his problems up close and personal.”
– Jack in the Green
We warmed up with Not A Drill, Lee’s latest short story released in July.
Now his newest Jack Reacher novel is: Personal.
Someone has taken a long-range shot at the French president but failed to kill him. The suspected sniper has serious skills and is a hard man to find. Reacher tracked him down once and put him in jail. Now he’s asked to hunt him again, and put him away permanently.
Tracking the shooter will take Reacher from France to England after a killer with a treacherous vendetta. He’ll need to uncover who did the hiring and what’s behind the assassination attempt before executing his orders.
Sounds terrific, doesn’t it? Outside the U.S., readers have already devoured Personal and it’s a #1 Bestseller everywhere. Now we can catch up. Let’s get Personal with Jack Reacher, what do you say?
Here’s a cool trailer for the book, too.

I think that’s a fabulous title for a book. I find it interesting that they decided on two different covers for the US and UK. This may be common, but I think the US cover is much more intense and makes a louder statement. But then again, what do I know? 🙂
On all of the Lee Child books, Karen, there are two different covers. I’ve noticed a few other authors who do this, too. Apparently reader interests vary enough to warrant the change.
