Juliet Must Die

They killed her because she got in the way. But they should have made sure she was dead.
With a bright career ahead of her, math prodigy Juliet Capulet meets a stranger named Romeo while on an island getaway. Their budding relationship seems harmless, but his girlfriend, wealthy socialite Tera Paris, is none too happy about it. And back in the states when their relationship fails to dissolve, Juliet finds herself the victim of a scare tactic gone awry.

When her lifeless body is found—the authorities edge closer to finding her killers, with Romeo being the prime suspect. And guilt ridden, he considers the unthinkable. Shockingly, though, Juliet is revived by an organization whose motives are a mystery to her. And they offer to help her get revenge; only if she agrees to join them. 

But you don’t come back from the dead without a few changes to the psyche, among other things. And while she adjusts to her new state of being, she’s faced with an impossible choice, to accept her fate with the organization or risk life and limb for a shot with Romeo.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Family secrets come back to haunt Jack Reacher in this electrifying thriller from “a superb craftsman of suspense” (Entertainment Weekly).

Jack Reacher hits the pavement and sticks out his thumb. He plans to follow the sun on an epic trip across America, from Maine to California. He doesn’t get far. On a country road deep in the New England woods, he sees a sign to a place he has never been: the town where his father was born. He thinks, What’s one extra day? He takes the detour.

At the same moment, in the same isolated area, a car breaks down. Two young Canadians had been on their way to New York City to sell a treasure. Now they’re stranded at a lonely motel in the middle of nowhere. The owners seem almost too friendly. It’s a strange place, but it’s all there is.

The next morning, in the city clerk’s office, Reacher asks about the old family home. He’s told no one named Reacher ever lived in town. He’s always known his father left and never returned, but now Reacher wonders, Was he ever there in the first place?

As Reacher explores his father’s life, and as the Canadians face lethal dangers, strands of different stories begin to merge. Then Reacher makes a shocking discovery: The present can be tough, but the past can be tense . . . and deadly.

Praise for Past Tense

“Child is one writer who should never be taken for granted.”—The New York Times Book Review

“[Lee Child] shows no signs of slowing down. . . . Reacher is a man for whom the phrase moral compass was invented: His code determines his direction. . . . You need Jack Reacher.”—The Atlantic

“Superb . . . Child neatly interweaves multiple narratives, ratchets up the suspense (the reveal of the motel plot is delicious), and delivers a powerful, satisfying denouement. Fans will enjoy learning more of this enduring character’s roots, and Child’s spare prose continues to set a very high bar.”—Publishers Weekly (boxed and starred review)

“Another first-class entry in a series that continues to set the gold standard for aspiring thriller authors.”—Booklist (starred review)

“With his usual flair for succinctness and eye for detail, Child creates another rollicking Reacher road trip that will please fans and newcomers alike.”—Library Journal (starred review)
