Did you hear about the new technological development in fingerprinting analysis? Fingerprints are extremely helpful for solving crimes, and that’s often the reason I research and write about them — both in my books and here on my blog.

“It’s Complicated” In the Search for Jack Reacher
In my thriller Get Back Jack, FBI Special Agents Kim Otto and Carlos Gaspar trace the trail of Jack Reacher’s friends. But are these people actually friends/former friends of Reacher’s or are they enemies?? Relationships are complicated. According to a study by Tel Aviv University, only 50% of friendships are mutual. Hard to believe, but you […]

The Crown Vic: What’s the Big Deal?
In Don’t Know Jack, we are introduced to Carlos Gaspar’s love of the Crown Vic — and Kim Otto’s disdain for it: “Gaspar picked a full sized sedan at the rental counter in Atlanta. A black Crown Vic. The kind of car Kim hated because it was too big, and too low to the ground. She’d have […]
Voodoo: The big difference a couple vowels makes
Knowledge is power. That’s why we read, right? (And because it’s the best form of entertainment in the world!) But in knowledge, there’s not only power, but also safety. That’s why, when traveling, it’s good to know as much as you can about your destination before you get there – especially if your destination is […]
5 Cool Travel Gadgets For Reacher Hunters
Lee Child’s Jack Reacher travels light. He carries a folding toothbrush, an ATM card, and an expired passport. Talk about bare bones travel, right? Hitching rides, taking the bus. No, thanks. Not my style at all. Not FBI Special Agents Kim Otto and Carlos Gaspar’s style either. Their business is to Hunt for Jack Reacher. […]
What’s the best diner in your town?
As we all know from Lee Child’s thrillers, Jack Reacher feels very much at home in a good, greasy diner.
