Six shots. Five dead. One heartland city thrown into a state of terror. But within hours the cops have it solved: a slam-dunk case. Except for one thing.
The accused man says: "You got the wrong guy." Then he says: "Get Reacher for me."
And sure enough, from the world he lives in - no phone, no address, no commitments ex–military investigator Jack Reacher is coming.
In Lee Child’s astonishing thriller, One Shot Reacher’s arrival will change everything - about a case that isn’t what it seems, about lives tangled in baffling ways, about a killer who missed one shot–and by doing so give Jack Reacher one shot at the truth . .

"Nobody should pick up a Jack Reacher novel and expect great literature. I might be wrong but I suspect that that isn’t Lee Child’s purpose. What you get instead is a good dollop of wish-fulfilment, good writing, beautiful, intelligent and feisty females who are either integral to the development of the plot or just along for the ride, and implausible story lines! One shot is no exception – why change a winning formula?" - Goodreads Review.
