Reacher’s long gone. His enemies aren’t.

“Make some coffee. You’ll read all night.” Lee Child, #1 World-Wide Bestselling Author of Jack Reacher Thrillers

FBI Special Agent Kim Otto’s search for Reacher takes a deadly turn when she’s forced to handle the fallout from Lee Child’s The Midnight Line—and gets caught in the crossfire.

Reacher set out to do a good deed for an Army officer in The Midnight Line.

The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Now, five people are missing and one is dead.

But when Reacher’s enemies hunt his friends, someone has to pay.

An exciting chase from Detroit to Chicago to Houston and deep into Mexico where FBI Special Agent Kim Otto fights to the death in the gripping conclusion.

And Jack Reacher could be there when she needs him.

Start reading now and you’ll be glued to the page. But lock the doors first. This one’s a nail biter.

Lee Child Gives Diane Capri Two Thumbs Up!

“Full of thrills and tension, but smart and human, too. Kim Otto is a great, great character—I love her.” – Lee Child, #1 World Wide Bestselling Author of Jack Reacher Thrillers including The Midnight Line and Past Tense.

The Hunt for Jack Reacher series enthralls fans of John Grisham, Lee Child, David Baldacci, Michael Connelly, Karin Slaughter, Lisa Gardner, and more:

“Diane writes like the maestro of the jigsaw puzzle. Sit back in your favorite easy chair, pour a glass of crisp white wine, and enter her devilishly clever world.” – David Hagberg, New York Times Bestselling Author of Kirk McGarvey Thrillers

“Expertise shines on every page.” – Margaret Maron, Edgar, Anthony, Agatha and Macavity Award Winning MWA Past President and MWA Grand Master

Readers Love the Hunt for Jack Reacher Series and Diane Capri:

"I 'stumbled' on this title and was attracted to it as I am a Jack Reacher fan. Loved the story and the author's writing style. Couldn't wait for more so I purchased [Raw Justice] and want more Jennifer Lane - please?! Fatal Distraction is also on my Kindle to read list!"

"I have been a Reacher fan for years and was excited when I heard of Diane Capri's take on 'Finding Reacher'. 'Don't Know Jack' is a good companion to Child's Reacher books and recaptures the flavor of the Reacher mystique. I am waiting anxiously for the next book in the series and the next and the next, and so on."

"All Child fans should give it a try!"
