This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


A Jack Reacher short story published as an individual ebook, now also available in the new complete Jack Reacher short story collection, No Middle Name.

Ever wondered what early experiences shaped Reacher's explosive career as butt-kicker supreme, the one-man guided-missile battler for justice? Lee Child looks back on an incident in his hero Jack Reacher's teenage years as the younger son of a tough career US Marine, on a faraway military base in the Pacific.

Second Son

Lee Child is back to his very best with this short story about Jack Reacher as a 13 year old boy. It grabbed my attention and left me wanting more. Here's looking forward to the newest book due out next month.
- Declan O'Hare (N. Ireland)


Great short story. Typical Lee Child stuff. A little over priced for what you get though!


Child at his best. Reacher as gripping as ever. No way can Cruise pulling off playing Reacher. Great
