    Love Lee Childs books, and have been recommending them to all my friends and family. They will make great films, but cannot believe that it is being speculated that Tom Cruise will play Jack Reacher.

    Lee Child is a fantasatic writer; his characters come to life on the page and are so utterly believable. He makes reading more intersting for me. It’s hard to put one of his ‘Jack Reacher’ books down once you’ve begun on page one!!
    Thank you Mr Child, from one of your fans. xxx
