Summary
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * Lee Child returns with a gripping new powerhouse thriller featuring Jack Reacher, "one of this century's most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes" ( The Washington Post ).

Reacher takes a stroll through a small Wisconsin town and sees a class ring in a pawn shop window: West Point 2005. A tough year to graduate: Iraq, then Afghanistan. The ring is tiny, for a woman, and it has her initials engraved on the inside. Reacher wonders what unlucky circumstance made her give up something she earned over four hard years. He decides to find out. And find the woman. And return her ring. Why not?

So begins a harrowing journey that takes Reacher through the upper Midwest, from a lowlife bar on the sad side of small town to a dirt-blown crossroads in the middle of nowhere, encountering bikers, cops, crooks, muscle, and a missing persons PI who wears a suit and a tie in the Wyoming wilderness.

The deeper Reacher digs, and the more he learns, the more dangerous the terrain becomes. Turns out the ring was just a small link in a far darker chain. Powerful forces are guarding a vast criminal enterprise. Some lines should never be crossed. But then, neither should Reacher.

Praise for The Midnight Line

"Puts Reacher just where we want him." -- The New York Times Book Review

"A gem." -- Chicago Tribune

"A timely, suspenseful, morally complex thriller, one of the best I've read this year . . . Child weaves in a passionately told history of opioids in American life. . . . Child's outrage over it is only just barely contained." -- The Philadelphia Inquirer

"A perfect example of Lee Child's talent . . . Lee Child is the master of plotting. . . . This is Child's most emotional book to date. . . . This is not just a good story; it is a story with a purpose and a message." -- Huffington Post

"I just read the new Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child. . . . It is as good as they always are. I read every single one." -- Malcolm Gladwell
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The softer side of Jack Reacher? Huh? Well, everything's relative, but this time out Reacher does far less head-butting than usual, and the action is scaled down several notches, too. It starts with the former MP turned off-the-grid wanderer strolling through a Wisconsin town comfort break on his bus to nowhere when he spots a ring in a pawn-shop window not just any ring but a West Point class ring. West Pointers don't pawn class rings, so, naturally, Reacher wants to find out what happened. His attempts to trace the ring land him in the middle of an elaborate opioid-distribution operation originating in, of all places, a laundromat in South Dakota. Reacher tracks the ring's owner with relative ease, but that's where the trouble starts. Not so much with bad guys though there are some of those but with an army major desperately in need of help. Showing his sensitive side and his usual shrewd ability to figure stuff out, Reacher proves the man for the job. Not your usual Reacher fare God help us, we crave more head-banging but a very good, multifaceted novel about dealing with the unthinkable. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: It's automatic: Reacher gets off a bus, and Child lands on the NYT best-seller list.--Ott, Bill Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Bestseller Child's superlative 22nd Jack Reacher novel picks up where 2015's Make Me left off. While riding a bus in Wisconsin to the next "end-of-the-line place," Reacher gets off at a rest stop "on the sad side of a small town." In a pawn shop window, he spots a West Point ring, class of 2005, sized for a small woman. As a West Pointer himself, Reacher knows what it takes to earn that ring-and he wants to find out who it belonged to and why it was pawned. The trail takes him to Rapid City, S.Dak., where he encounters shady Arthur Scorpio-ostensibly a laundromat owner, but of interest to local police and a private investigator from Chicago-and, eventually, to Wyoming. The identity of the ring's owner is established reasonably quickly, and her backstory (and what Reacher does about it) takes the reader from the wars in Afghanistan to the opioid crisis in America (including a damning thumbnail history of how corporate America has profited from selling heroin in one form or another and a devastating portrait of opioid addiction). As usual, Child makes his narrative entirely credible-and compulsively readable. Agent: Darley Anderson, Darley Anderson Literary. (Nov.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
