Synopsis

In 'James Penney's New Identity', in the dry desert of Southern California, James Penney is laid off from the plant after seventeen loyal years of service. With the threat of the bank repossessing his treasured red Firebird, he goes on the run. But why are the cops so hot on his trail? And who is the tall military policeman, built like a weightlifter, who offers him a ride?

Set just a few minutes before the terrifying opening of the bestselling Jack Reacher thriller Gone Tomorrow, in 'Guy Walks Into a Bar', old habits die hard for Jack Reacher. He is always on the look-out for trouble. When he stops at a bar in lower Manhattan for a late night beer and some music, his eyes are drawn to a rich young Russian girl and her bodyguard. Is she in danger? Who are those two suspicious-looking guys sitting at separate tables, watching her?

These two short stories are part of the Storycuts series.

Guy Walks Into A Bar
March 22nd, 2015
Lee Child, what more can be said, I have read countless book's written by this author and this as a precluder of the Jack Reacher stories is to me spellbinding. A talented writer and this is as taunting for you as any suspense thriller you will find

Great short stories. Been putting book off for ages. Finally got round to it to find out that Reacher is in them. Still happy with my mind's picture of JR certainly not the 'short' film version though!!!!!!
