The #1 New York Times"bestselling author reveals the story behind “one of this century's most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes” (The Washington Post).

In this short piece, the creator of Jack Reacher shares the origins of the ex-military cop who now makes use of his skills in the civilian world -- a place where he never feels quite at home. In addition, Lee Child reflects on writing and his own life story: the importance of character; making the transition from a television career to a literary career; how his famous character was almost named Franklin -- and how he wound up being called Reacher instead.

“Jack Reacher is today's James Bond, a thriller hero we can't get enough of. I read every one as soon as it appears.” -- Ken Follett, international-bestselling author of The Pillars of the Earth

“Every Reacher novel delivers a jolt to the nervous system.” -- Kirkus Reviews
