The creator of Jack Reacher and author of fourteen thrillers, Child has redefined the thriller genre. His new book 61 Hours is sure to be another rollicking page-turner. He talks with John Birmingham.
Lee Child was born in 1954 in Coventry, England, but spent his formative years in the nearby city of Birmingham. By coincidence he won a scholarship to the same high school that JRR Tolkien had attended.
John Birmingham is the author of the cult classic He Died With a Felafel in His Hand and most recently the thriller, Without Warning.
