Jack Reacher

If You Like Lee Child’s “Jack Reacher” series…
Try These Authors/Titles

oneshot3oneshotLee Child’s novels featuring Jack Reacher have touched a popular chord in the reading audience — Reacher is something of a knight errant…a quiet, thoughtful, highly moralistic man, whose background in the military has left him somewhat jaded, but unwilling to turn a blind eye to injustice. He sticks up for the “little guy”, no matter what the odds are. The Reacher of the novels is a tall, large, big-boned man (unlike the shorter, lean and tight character as portrayed by the much smaller Tom Cruise in the 2012 movie Jack Reacher based on One Shot, which was the 9th book in the series).

The books are filled with often brutal violence, although that violence always has consequences, to both victims and perpetrators. Reacher almost resembles a modern day version of the nameless Western hero who would ride into town, fight off the corrupt men threatening the townsfolk, perhaps hook up briefly with the plucky heroine, and then would disappear quietly in the night.

If this type of “loner hero” with a streak of “white knight” appeals to you, you might wish to sample some of the authors, series or individual stand-alone novels listed below.The author names (and titles) in the list below are hotlinked to their holdings in our catalog, so that you may check on the availability of their titles in print, audio or downloadable formats.
