Is Jack Reacher friend or foe? That’s the million dollar question that’s kept readers on the edge of their seats since Lee Child began writing the Jack Reacher novels more than twenty years ago.
In my latest thriller, Black Jack, Reacher once again finds himself in the spotlight. Is he really the return serial killer as the New York FBI claims? Agents Kim Otto and Carlos Gaspar aren’t convinced.
My Hunt for Jack Reacher Series follows FBI Special Agents Kim Otto and Carlos Gaspar as they hunt down Reacher’s past in search of information about him to complete a background check. Reacher is being considered for a top secret classified assignment. Along Otto and Gaspar’s search, Reacher transitions from man to myth to legend.
What are some of the traits that made Jack Reacher a legend?
He is so elusive and strategic that he’s bound to be one step ahead of almost everyone else around him.
He’s not afraid, and he’s not against a little — or a lot — of violence.
He has no known address. He’s a pro at living off of the grid and being on the run, mysteriously appearing only to disappear again.
He’s driven by a strong moral code all his own, which can be twisted at times.
- He carries nothing in his pockets except an ATM card, a passport and a folding toothbrush.
