A WANTED MAN. Lee Child. A WANTED MAN.
London: Bantam Press, (2012). First edition, preceding the American edition. SIGNED on title page. This one got a sterling review from Nick Burrows in London, who was offering copies for sale: "A Jack Reacher novel with the usual thin plot, slowly building suspense and Reacher's conclusive, righteous violence. I should have wearied of this formulaic stuff by now, but like all Child's other books, could barely put it down until finished." So true. Fine in dust jacket.
