This compilation includes three Jack Reacher novellas and
the ultimate fan guide Jack Reacher''s Rules.
In thriller master Lee Child's short story Deep Down, Jack
Reacher must track down a spy in soldier's clothing-by matching
wits with four formidable females. Three are clean-but the fourth
may prove fatal.
Summoned by Military Intelligence to Washington, D.C., Reacher is
sent undercover. The assignment that awaits him: The army is
meeting with its Capitol Hill paymasters for classified talks on a
new, state-of-the-art sniper rifle for U.S. forces. But vital
details about the weapon are leaking-straight from the Capitol and
probably into the hands of unidentified foreign arms dealers. The
prospect of any and every terrorist, mercenary, or dictator's
militia getting their hands on the latest superior firepower is
unthinkable. That's where Reacher comes in. His task: infiltrate
the top-secret proceedings and smoke out the mole. His target: a
quartet of high-powered Army political liaison officers-all of them
fast-track women on their way to the top.
According to his bosses, it's a zero-danger mission. No need to
draw a gun . . . just chat over drinks. But Reacher knows that
things are rarely what they seem. And he's learned the hard way
never to underestimate an opponent. Or four. Lessons that will come
in handy when he starts digging for the truth-and gets his hands a
lot dirtier than he expected.
A young Jack Reacher knows how to finish a fight so
it stays finished. He knows how to get the job done so it stays
done. And, in one of his earliest challenges, he knows that his
analytical brain is just as important as his impressive
Okinawa, 1974. Even at thirteen, Jack Reacher knows how to outwit
and overpower anyone who stands in his way. And as the new kid in
town, that's pretty much everyone. His family has come to the
Pacific with his father, who's preparing for a top-secret Marine
Corps operation. After receiving a rude welcome from the local
military brats, Reacher and his older brother, Joe, intend to teach
them a lesson they won't forget. But it's soon clear that there's
more at stake than pride. When his family's future appears to come
crumbling down, it's the youngest Reacher who rises to the occasion
with all the decisive cunning and bravura that will one day be his
In the midst of a savage heat wave and an infamous murder
spree, a blackout awakens the dark side of the city that never
sleeps-and a young Jack Reacher takes action as only he can.
July 1977. Jack Reacher is almost seventeen, and he stops in New
York City on the way to visit his brother at West Point. The summer
heat is suffocating, the city is bankrupt, and the mad gunman known
as Son of Sam is still on the loose. Reacher meets a woman with a
problem, and agrees to help her . . . but then the power grid fails
and the lights go out, plunging the lawless city into chaos. What
does a visiting teenager do in the dark? If that visiting teenager
is Jack Reacher, the answer is plenty.
