Jack Reacher Series, Book 4
by Lee Child
Jack Reacher races to solve the perfect crime in the fourth novel in Lee Child's New York Times bestselling series.

Across the country, women are being murdered, victims of a disciplined and clever killer who leaves no trace evidence, no fatal wounds, no signs of struggle, and no clues to an apparent motive. They are, truly, perfect crimes. In fact, there's only one thing that links the victims. Each one of the women knew Jack Reacher—and it's got him running blind.

  • Publisher's Weekly

    July 3, 2000
    Jack Reacher, the wandering folk hero of Child's superb line of thrillers (Tripwire, etc.), faces a baffling puzzle in his latest adventure: who is the exceptionally crafty villain murdering women across the country, leaving the naked bodies in their bathtubs (which are filled with army camouflage green paint), escaping the scenes and leaving no trace of evidence? The corpses show no cause of death and Reacher's sole clue is that all the victims thus far were sexually harassed while serving in the military. There's got to be some sort of grand scheme behind the killings, but with no physical evidence, FBI agents bumble around until they finally question Reacher, a former military cop who handled each of the dead women's harassment cases. After Reacher convinces investigators he's innocent, they--curiously--ask him to stay on as a case consultant. Reacher doesn't like the idea--he's too much of a lone wolf--but he has little choice. The feds threaten him and his girlfriend, high-powered Manhattan attorney Jodie Jacob, with all sorts of legal entanglements if he doesn't help. So Reacher joins the FBI team and immediately attacks the feds' approach, which is based solely on profiling. Then he breaks out on his own, pursuing enigmatic theories and hunches that lead him to a showdown with a truly surprising killer in a tiny village outside Portland, Ore. Some of the concluding elements to Child's fourth Reacher outing--how the killer gains access to the victims' homes, as well as the revelation of the elaborate MO--fall into place with disappointing convenience. Yet the book harbors two elements that separate it from the pack: a brain-teasing puzzle that gets put together piece by fascinating piece, and a central character with Robin Hood-like integrity and an engagingly eccentric approach to life.

  • AudioFile Magazine Having narrated all of this author's thrillers about an ex-military police officer, Dick Hill is Jack Reacher, and it's hard to imagine anyone else in the role. Reacher is back, as the FBI blackmails him into a hunt for a serial killer who dispatches victims in a bizarre manner--all are found dead in a bathtub full of army green paint. As the victims increase in number, the motive for the killings becomes more elusive. Hill turns in his usual solid performance as Reacher--the man nobody ought to fool with. He's very credible, both as the victims and the killer, especially in light of the surprise ending. A.L.H (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine
