Andrew Child, who also writes as Andrew Grant, is the author of RUN, False Positive, False Friend, False Witness, Invisible, and Too Close to Home. He is also the co-author, with his brother, Lee Child, of the bestselling The Sentinel: A Jack Reacher Novel (Delacorte Press). In Better Off Dead: A Jack Reacher Novel (Delacorte Press) – the 26th installment of the Reacher saga, also co-written with his brother – we meet our hero heading west, walking under the desert sun. Suddenly he comes upon a curious scene: a Jeep crashed into the only tree for miles around, with a woman slumped over its steering wheel. Is she dead? No – and nothing is what it seems. She’s an army veteran-turned-FBI agent and she’s trying to find her twin brother, who might be mixed up with some very dangerous people. Reacher is good at finding people who don’t want to be found, but this will be the riskiest job of his life.
