<b>#1 bestselling author John Grisham’s <i>The Reckoning</i> is his most powerful, surprising, and suspenseful thriller yet.</b><br />  <br />“A murder mystery, a courtroom drama, a family saga…<b><i>The Reckoning</i> is Grisham's argument that he's not just a boilerplate thriller writer</b>. Most jurors will think the counselor has made his case.”<br /><b>—<i>USA Today</i></b><br /> <br />  <i>October 1946, Clanton, Mississippi<br /> </i><br /> Pete Banning was Clanton, Mississippi’s favorite son—a decorated World War II hero, the patriarch of a prominent family, a farmer, father, neighbor, and a faithful member of the Methodist church. Then one cool October morning he rose early, drove into town, and committed a shocking crime.  Pete's only statement about it—to the sheriff, to his lawyers, to the judge, to the jury, and to his family—was: "I have nothing to say." He was not afraid of death and was willing to take his motive to the grave.<br />            <br /> In a major novel unlike anything he has written before, John Grisham takes us on an incredible journey, from the Jim Crow South to the jungles of the Philippines during World War II; from an insane asylum filled with secrets to the Clanton courtroom where Pete’s defense attorney tries desperately to save him. <br /><br /> Reminiscent of the finest tradition of Southern Gothic storytelling, <i>The Reckoning</i> would not be complete without Grisham’s signature layers of legal suspense, and he delivers on every page.

<b>#1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER </b>• <b>Family secrets come back to haunt Jack Reacher in this electrifying thriller from “a superb craftsman of suspense” (<i>Entertainment Weekly</i>).</b><br /><br /> Jack Reacher hits the pavement and sticks out his thumb. He plans to follow the sun on an epic trip across America, from Maine to California. He doesn’t get far. On a country road deep in the New England woods, he sees a sign to a place he has never been: the town where his father was born. He thinks, <i>What’s one extra day?</i> He takes the detour.<br /><br /> At the same moment, in the same isolated area, a car breaks down. Two young Canadians had been on their way to New York City to sell a treasure. Now they’re stranded at a lonely motel in the middle of nowhere. The owners seem almost too friendly. It’s a strange place, but it’s all there is.<br /><br /> The next morning, in the city clerk’s office, Reacher asks about the old family home. He’s told no one named Reacher ever lived in town. He’s always known his father left and never returned, but now Reacher wonders, <i>Was he ever there in the first place?<br /></i><br /> <i> </i>As Reacher explores his father’s life, and as the Canadians face lethal dangers, strands of different stories begin to merge. Then Reacher makes a shocking discovery: The present can be tough, but the past can be tense . . . and deadly.<br /><br /> <b>Don’t miss a sneak peek of Lee Child’s novel <i>Blue Moon</i> in the back of the book.</b><br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Past Tense<br /></i></b><br /> “Child is one writer who should never be taken for granted.”<b>—<i>The New York Times Book Review</i></b><br /><br /> “[Lee Child]<i> </i>shows no signs of slowing down. . . . Reacher is a man for whom the phrase <i>moral compass </i>was invented: His code determines his direction. . . . You need Jack Reacher.”<b>—<i>The Atlantic</i></b><br /><br /> “Superb . . . Child neatly interweaves multiple narratives, ratchets up the suspense (the reveal of the motel plot is delicious), and delivers a powerful, satisfying denouement. Fans will enjoy learning more of this enduring character’s roots, and Child’s spare prose continues to set a very high bar.”<b>—<i>Publishers Weekly</i> (boxed and starred review)</b><br /><br /> “Another first-class entry in a series that continues to set the gold standard for aspiring thriller authors.”<b>—<i>Booklist </i>(starred review)</b><br /><br /> “With his usual flair for succinctness and eye for detail, Child creates another rollicking Reacher road trip that will please fans and newcomers alike.”<b>—<i>Library Journal</i> (starred review)</b>
