Jack Reacher hunts the hunter in the third novel in Lee Child’s New York Times bestselling series.

Ex military policeman Jack Reacher is enjoying the lazy anonymity of Key West when a stranger shows up asking for him. He’s got a lot of questions. Reacher does too, especially after the guy turns up dead. The answers lead Reacher on a cold trail back to New York, to the tenuous confidence of an alluring woman, and the dangerous corners of his own past.


  • Gruesome story. But I am starting to fall a little bit in love with Jack Reacher

    By janetbeth
    The details are great, except when they’re gruesome and then I skim over them. I’d really like to see him married but I have a feeling he’ll be Rambling Reacher, Master Crime Solver, forever.

    Great book, a good read. BUT…………….. there is alway a cut! Child must get paid by the word. He uses way to many. Ask him what time it is, he tell you in six pages, how to build a watch. Other that that, great read.

  • The best Reacher novel I’ve read so far

    By 3Mbysdad
    Excellent plot and clever twists. Good pacing, clear prose. and the Reacher character continues to entertain. A little bit mushy on the romance side but to each his own.

    I really liked it Surprise ending Kept my interest the whole time
  • Suspenseful, difficult to put down

    By CMAIR
    Tripwire is full of suspense and intrigue. It keeps one guessing throughout the book. Excellent characters, especially Reacher’s new love. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series to see if Jodie is part of Reacher’s life.
  • Another winner

    Lee Child has never failed to deliver a fast paced, character rich story, and this one is no different. Loved the twist in the ending, didn’t see that coming. Thanks Lee, your the best
  • Ending

    By pjbgigi
    I was disappointed that nothing was written about Chester and his wife after they were released. She was such a strong woman and was the only one to try to help Reacher, then it was like they had never been an integral part of the event leading to Allen’s (Hobie’s) demise. (I hope I got the names right. I went back and wrote this after reading another book and was too unfamiliar with my iPad to figure out how to get back into a book after marking it “read” and I am no good with names.)
