Summary: "Get ready for the ultimate Jack Reacher experience: a thrilling new novella and eleven previously published stories, together for the first time in one pulse-pounding collection from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child. Get ready for the ultimate Jack Reacher reading experience. No Middle Name includes eleven previously published stories and a thrilling new novella from the twelve-time #1 New York Times bestselling author, shedding light on "one of this century's most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes" (The Washington Post). This pulse-pounding collection marks the first time that all of Lee Child's short fiction starring Reacher has been available in the same place at the same time. No Middle Name begins with "Too Much Time," a brand-new work of short fiction that finds Reacher in a hollowed-out town in Maine, where he witnesses a random bag-snatching but sees much more than a simple crime--a fact that could prove fatal. "Small Wars" takes readers back to 1989, when Reacher is an MP assigned to solve the brutal murder of a young officer found along an isolated forest road in Georgia--and whose killer may be hiding in plain sight. In "Not a Drill," Reacher tries to take some down time, but a pleasant hike in Maine turns into a walk on the wild side--and perhaps something far more sinister. "High Heat" time hops to 1977, when Reacher is a teenager in sweltering New York City during a sudden blackout that awakens the dark side of the city that never sleeps. Okinawa is the setting of "Second Son," which reveals the pivotal moment when young Reacher's sharp "lizard brain" becomes just as important as his muscle. In "Deep Down," Reacher tracks down a spy by matching wits with four formidable females--three of which are clean, but the fourth may prove fatal. Rounding out the collection are "Guy Walks into a Bar," "James Penney's New Identity," "Everyone Talks," "The Picture of the Lonely Diner," "Maybe They Have a Tradition," and "No Room at the Motel." No suitcase. No destination. No middle name. No matter how far Reacher travels off the beaten path, trouble always finds him. Feel bad for trouble. Praise for Lee Child "There's a reason [Lee] Child is considered the best of the best in the thriller genre."--Associated Press "This series [is] utterly addictive."--Janet Maslin, The New York Times "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 "The Reacher novels are easily the best thriller series going."--NPR "Reacher's just one of fiction's great mysterious strangers."--Maxim "Irresistible Reacher remains just about the best butt-kicker in thriller-lit."--Kirkus Reviews"-- Provided by publisher.Summary: "A collection of pulse-pounding Jack Reacher stories--one never-before-seen novella, plus eleven others collected for the first time in print--each with original introductions from the twelve-time #1 New York Times bestselling author"-- Provided by publisher.
