#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A gripping new Jack Reacher thriller from Lee Child and Andrew Child

No Plan B is not to be missed. A perfectly plotted, fast-paced thriller, with bigger twists than ever before. It’s no wonder Jack Reacher is everyone’s favorite rebel hero.”—Karin Slaughter


In Gerrardsville, Colorado, a woman dies under the wheels of a moving bus. The death is ruled a suicide. But Jack Reacher saw what really happened: A man in a gray hoodie and jeans, moving stealthily, pushed the victim to her demise—before swiftly grabbing the dead woman’s purse and strolling away.

When another homicide is ruled an accident, Reacher knows this is no coincidence. With a killer on the loose, Reacher has no time to waste to track down those responsible. 

But Reacher is unaware that these crimes are part of something much larger and more far-reaching: an arsonist out for revenge, a foster kid on the run, a cabal of powerful people involved in a secret conspiracy with many moving parts. There is no room for error, but they make a grave one. They don’t consider Reacher a threat. “There’s too much at stake to start running from shadows.” But Reacher isn’t a shadow. He is flesh and blood. And relentless when it comes to making things right.

For when the threat is Reacher, there is No Plan B.


  • This was a good read. I did not get all the facts until the very end!

    It was a little gory but I like reading Jack Reacher’s stories. I don’t like that Tom Cruise was cast as Reacher in the movies. The only thing big about Cruise is his opinion of himself. So he certainly does not fit the Reacher profile!

    Another great read of Jack Reacher
  • This author collaboration isn’t working!

    By Stan Hurley
    This author collaboration is, unfortunately, a failure for the second time. One of my all time favorite characters and a great series has apparently ended. Thank you Lee Child for trying to keep Reacher alive a little longer but I won’t read another colab. I did enjoy the recent series on Prime though and will watch for more of that.
  • Decent but kind of boring

    By jmit22
    Dragged through the middle. Tons of useless details. I like the Jack Reacher stories but struggled through this one. Hoping the next will be better.

    Extremely detailed and unorganized. Like reading two books simultainisly. Save your money. I’ve read a number of Reacher books , but this one should stay on the shelf.
  • I’m done

    By Garyispop
    There is no comparing the first 10 or so books in the series to the more recent books. I assume it is because the original author is no longer writing the series. I think it is time to find a new favorite series.
  • Unfortunately I think I am done with Jack Reacher

    By vespaman1
    I’ve read all the books and this one is just too far fetched. I realize it is just fiction but things should be vaguely possible. Reacher feels like a different person from who I have been reading previously, and it’s a shame.
  • Good read

    By winnie_pooh31
    I love Jack Reacher, modern day Robin-hood. The characters came together well.
  • Wordy wordy

    By CJ from CT
    So overly descriptive it was distracting and included unnecessary detail of every building, every scene. Was as if it was written for a movie director to perform set building. First time I found a Reacher book bordering on painful to read.
  • Really Disappointing

    By RedDog1
    I’m afraid I agree with most reviewers—this read like Lee Childs was dead and a college freshman took over the Reacher franchise. Chopped up plot; too many fight scenes that were abrupt, incomplete, or unnecessary; no character development; and a rush to sum up after 300+ pages of stumbling. Father/revenge angle could have worked alone as a subplot, but not two of them. Books have gone downhill since the “new” Childs was added. Family is great, but collaborative authorship is NOT working. Hope we see a real Jack Reacher book soon.
