His debut, Killing Floor won both the Anthony and the Barry awards for Best First Mystery and The Enemy won both the Barry and Nero awards for Best Novel. Foreign rights in the Reacher series have sold in forty territories. All titles have been optioned for major motion pictures. Child, a native of England and a former television director lives in New York City where he is at work on his next thriller. Chapter One Five minutes to three in the afternoon. Exactly sixty-one hours before it happened. The lawyer drove in and parked in the empty lot. There was an inch of new snow on the ground so he spent a minute fumbling in the foot well until his overshoes were secure. He got out and turned his collar up and walked to the visitors' entrance. There was a bitter wind out of the north. It was thick with fat lazy flakes. There was a storm sixty miles away. The radio had been full of it. The lawyer got in through the door and stamped the snow off his feet. There was no line. It was not a regular visiting day. There was nothing ahead of him except an empty room and an empty X-ray belt and a metal detector hoop and three prison guards standing around doing nothing. He nodded to them even though he didn't know them. He considered himself on their side and they on his. Prison was a binary world. Either you were locked up or you weren't. They weren't. He wasn't yet. He took a gray plastic bin off the top of a teetering stack and folded his overcoat into it. He took off his suit coat and folded it and laid it on top of the overcoat. It was hot in the prison. Cheaper to burn a little extra oil than to give the inmates two sets of clothes, one for the summer and one for the winter. He could hear their noise ahead of him. The clatter of metal and concrete, the random crazy yells, the screams and the low grumble of other disaffected voices all muted by dog legged corridors and many closed doors. He emptied his pants pockets of keys, wallet, cell phone and coins and nested those clean warm personal items on top of his suit coat. He picked up the gray plastic bin. Didn't carry it to the X-ray belt. Instead he hefted it across the room to a small window in a wall. He waited there and a woman in uniform took it and gave him a numbered ticket in exchange for it. He braced himself in front of the metal detector hoop. He patted his pockets and glanced ahead expectantly as if waiting for an invitation. Learned behavior from air travel. The guards let him stand there for a minute, a small, nervous man in his shirt sleeves empty-handed. No briefcase. No notebook. Not even a pen. He was not there to advise. He was there to be advised. Not to talk but to listen. He sure as hell wasn't going to put what he heard anywhere near a piece of paper. The guards beckoned him through. A green light and no beep, but still the first guard wanded him and the second patted him down. The third escorted him deeper into the complex through doors designed never to be open unless the last and the next were closed and around tight corners designed to slow a running man's progress and past thick green glass windows with watchful faces behind. The lobby had been institutional with linoleum on the floor and mint.
