Jack Reacher Books In Order

March 17, 1997 saw the release of Killing Floor. This was both the first novel released by Lee Child and the first to feature Jack Reacher.

The story won two awards for Best First Novel and was a clear indication of things to come as Lee has gone on to sell millions more books and became a NYT bestselling novelist in the process.

Over the years, there have been dozens of stories featuring this character, so on this page we’ve produced two lists of Jack Reacher books in order.

The first list contains all of the full-length novels, while the second contains all of the other books in which he appears, most of which are short stories.

Both of these lists are in chronological order based on their date of publication, rather than the timeline in the stories themselves. This is because some of the recent short stories feature a young Reacher, while The Enemy is a prequel of Killing Floor.

The lists contain links to pages for each of the books that contain the following information:

  • Its release date
  • A description of the novel / short story
  • An image of the front cover
  • A link to the book on Amazon so that you can read reviews or buy a copy

If you’d like to see how these stories fit in with all of his other releases, check out our complete list of Lee Child books in order.
