Recorded live at the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival 2023
A brother and Child reunion as the creators old and new of the iconic Jack Reacher come together to discuss his legacy.
Reacher is a global phenomenon – it’s said one of his novels is sold somewhere in the world every nine seconds. He’s the world’s favourite literary action hero, a figure who transcends the genre, a character for the ages. He’s a streetwise Hercules to fight the rising odds.
When Lee Child made the decision to ease an extraordinary career towards retirement, it was his brother Andrew Child, a successful author in his own right, who was charged with the daunting task of continuing the dynasty. He’s done so brilliantly and No Plan B, the third collaboration between the brothers is as taut, twisty and terrific as ever.
Lee and Andrew Child is interviewed by Steph McGovern.
