#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY LOS ANGELES TIMES, THE GUARDIAN, AND SUSPENSE MAGAZINE Stephen King calls Jack Reacher the coolest continuing series character and now he s back in this masterly new thriller from Lee Child. Why is this town called Mother s Rest? That s all Reacher wants to know. But no one will tell him. It s a tiny place hidden in a thousand square miles of wheat fields, with a railroad stop, and sullen and watchful people, and a worried woman named Michelle Chang, who mistakes him for someone else: her missing partner in a private investigation she thinks must have started small and then turned lethal. Reacher has no particular place to go, and all the time in the world to get there, and there s something about Chang . . . so he teams up with her and starts to ask around. He thinks: How bad can this thing be? But before long he s plunged into a desperate race through LA, Chicago, Phoenix, and San Francisco, and through the hidden parts of the internet, up against thugs and assassins every step of the way right back to where he started, in Mother s Rest, where he must confront the worst nightmare he could imagine. Walking away would have been easier. But as always, Reacher s rule is: If you want me to stop, you re going to have to make me. Praise for Make Me Child s Reacher series has hit Book No. 20 with a resounding peal of wisecracking glee. Everything about it, starting with Reacher s nose for bad news, is as strong as ever. . . . The big guy s definitely on the upswing. The guy who writes about him is too. Janet Maslin, The New York Times Another winner. . . There s a reason why Child is considered the best of the best in the thriller genre: He can take all these strange elements and cliches and make them compelling and original. Associated Press A superb thriller. New York Daily News Child s complete command of the story makes this thriller work brilliantly. Publishers Weekly (starred review) I ve read all twenty of Lee Child s novels. Maybe there s something wrong with me. But I can t wait for the twenty-first. Malcolm Gladwell, The New Yorker [The Reacher series] is the current gold standard in the genre. . . . In Make Me Lee Child delivers another Jack Reacher specialty; the total knockout. Dayton Daily News Child serves up wingding plots, pithy dialogue, extraordinary background on intriguing topics, and cunningly constructed suspense. But what keeps us coming back by the millions is the chance to walk around in the skin of that big guy in the middle of everything. The Oregonian A dark thriller . . . Lee Child s Make Me, the twentieth in his wildly popular Jack Reacher series, delivers exactly what readers have come to expect from the perennial bestselling author: interesting characters, tight plots and page-turning action. . . . Readers won t be disappointed. Minneapolis Star Tribune Jack Reacher is back. . . . Readers new to this series will find this book a good starting point, and fans will be pleased to see Jack again. LibraryReads (Top Ten Pick) The reigning champ ups the ante. Booklist (starred review)"
While the desire to start a business has long been a pillar of the American dream, the reality is that many entrepreneurs begin their businesses with no business training; and, sadly, many fall victim to barely being able to make the business work (or even business failure) due to a lack of business knowledge and skills. Of course, knowing business basics before starting the business would be the best approach, but what about those business owners who have already begun their ventures? For those wanting to start businesses as well as those who already have, this book will seek to serve as an executive guide that will concisely fill in the gaps in business knowledge that are essential to making a business successful. The book will focus on five key areas that a business owner needs to understand, in order to effectively manage the venture. Those areas are: Strategic planning; Entrepreneurial finance; Entrepreneurial marketing; Cash flow management; and, Cost control. The book will also include brief bonus coverage of important topics such as break-even analysis, legal structures, and intellectual property.
A man who is accustomed to loneliness and sorrow, survives by rejecting promises of community and happiness. A fateful encounter with an elder threatens to shake the foundation of distrust which the man has come to rely on in order to stay grounded in his reality. That is, until a garden sows in him the courage to not only survive, but to live.
Janet Bodmin, Dee Donnington and Angela Anderson-Shelta first meet in Mid-Wales in the early eighties when the Government is offering cash to local councils to build underground nuclear fallout shelters asking participating councils to test their defences and emergency services with military exercises. This is a great opportunity for the politically ambitious Anthony Anderson-Shelta, husband to Angela, Conservative Chief Executive of the local council, a man who is useless in bed and yet badly wanted by his personal assistant, Ruth Tremlett. Written with a liberal dose of British humour, Jennifer Green's A Small Nuclear Fallout follows the three women as they join the Greenham Common women's anti-nuclear protest movement (much against the wishes of Angela's husband Anthony) and watch as all the well-laid plans of the council gradually fall apart including the anticipated visit of the Iron Lady herself, Margaret Thatcher.
