Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review A slickly effective thriller which confirms Child's ability to keep the reader guessing - and sweating The Times A fast-moving, violent and gripping mystery with a very bad baddie, and a tough, pragmatic hero in Jack Reacher Daily Telegraph Lee Child continues his meteoric rise and mastery of suspense with Tripwire. It's a tightly-drawn and swift thriller that gives new meaning to what a page-turner should be -- Michael Connelly Establishes Child in the premier division. Taut, with more than a touch of sweet romance, this is dangerously compulsive, so be warned - don't start it at bedtime or you'll be up all night Manchester Evening News Good thrillers exist in a class of their own. The point of such a book is total escape and Tripwire fills the bill... includes a bang-up finale which makes the reader sit back and gasp with both wonder and understanding Denver Post
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
