 ?? Lee Child

Lee Child is the pen name of former British lawyer, James Dover Grant (CBE), best known for his Jack Reacher series of thriller novels. After losing his job (a twenty year career in commercial television with Granada) Lee Child decided to start writing novels, which propelled him to international fame, gained him a passionate following and won Child multiple awards for his crime writing.

His first novel, Killing Floor, won both the Anthony Award and the Barry Award for Best First Novel. His style is described as hardboiled and action driven, with a high body count thanks to the antics of his iconic character, ex-military policeman, Jack Reacher.

Two Jack Reacher film adaptations, based on the novels, One Shot (2012) and Never Go Back (2016) have both starred Tom Cruise as Reacher. The 24th Reacher novel, Blue Moon is due to be published October 29, 2019.

Lee Child lives with his wife and daughter between his homes in Manhattan, England and France.
