Past Tense

Jack Reacher is embarking on an epic road trip from the northeast corner of America to the southwest, from Maine to California. He doesn’t get far. After seeing a sign to Laconia, New Hampshire, the town where his father was born, Reacher decides to take a detour down an isolated country road in the New England woods.

At the very same moment, close by, a car breaks down. Two young Canadians are trying to get to New York City to sell a treasure. They’re stranded at a lonely motel in the middle of nowhere.

The next morning in the city clerk’s office, Reacher asks about his father’s ancestral home. He’s told no one named Reacher ever lived in Laconia. He knows his father never went back. Now he wonders, was he ever there in the first place?

Praised by Peter James as ‘whip smart’ and by Joanne Harris from Goodreads for its ability to ‘hit the mark perfectly’, Lee Child’s newest release is a gripping thriller from one of the world’s best.
