This “highly recommended” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) collection edited by New York Times bestselling author Lee Child pairs the beloved characters of twenty-two internationally bestselling writers in “a must-read for fans of the thriller genre” (The Real Book Spy).

The incredible follow-up to FaceOff features twenty-two of the world’s bestselling and critically acclaimed thriller writers pairing their series characters in an eleven-story anthology curated by the International Thriller Writers (ITW). MatchUp takes the never-before-seen bestseller pairings of FaceOff and adds a delicious new twist: gender. “Think Dancing With the Stars, but with mysteries” (Booklist) as eleven of the world’s best female thriller writers from Diana Gabaldon to Kathy Reichs to Charlaine Harris are paired with eleven of the world’s best male thriller writers, including John Sandford, C.J.

In these innovative stories, their beloved protagonists, Lee Coburn, Joe Pickett, and Jack Reacher—just to name a few—team up to unnerve and satisfy thriller fans worldwide. All of the contributors are ITW members, and the project is edited by ITW member and #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child. The lineup includes:

5 of 5 Reacher at a crossroads July 1, 2014
Reviewer: J. Gravius from Brookfield, CT United States  
Child at his finest. This has everything expected in this series; intrigue, violence, and a romantic interest. The book tells readers about the last case before Reacher left the US Army. Since he is still in the army the reader is reunited with old faces who made cameo’s in earlier installments of the series. Child also does a wonderful job of demonstrating the vast bureaucracy of the Army. A woman is murdered in a small town down south near an Army base. Reacher is sent undercover to monitor the town investigation and to dig around himself. The local sheriff is also investigating. Reacher is caught in the middle. The reader is in for a treat as this working ‘partnership’ develops and progresses. The reach of the US government and military are shown with candor. Any fan with an interest in the armed forces will not be disappointed. The best part was seeing the transformation of Reacher from decorated, MP Major to disheveled drifter and how it bridges the gap before The Killing Floor.
