Lee Child live
Lee Child is one of the world’s leading thriller writers and author of the 100 million-selling Jack Reacher series. For one night only, he will be live and exclusive with 5x15 online to talk life and literature.
This is an event not to be missed. Since 1997's Killing Floor introduced Jack Reacher to the world, Lee Child has been a global phenomenon. For the past decade, he has been the most borrowed author in UK libraries, and his last book, Blue Moon, was the bestselling crime thriller of 2019, and second bestselling hardback fiction title of 2019 after Margaret Atwood’s The Testaments. It was No. 1 on the Sunday Times bestseller list for 10 weeks on its hardback publication, and outsold all the other top ten tiles combined.
After previous Hollywood adaptations, Jack Reacher is soon to become a major Amazon Prime TV Series – and amidst all of this, Lee Child recently found time to judge the 2020 Booker Prize.
The event will be ahead of the publication of his new book The Sentinel – the 25th in the series, the first written in collaboration with his brother Andrew – coming out on 27th October 2020.
Lee Child will be joined in conversation by 5x15’s own Jack Reacher obsessive, Rosie Boycott.
