Lee Child


(Jim Grant)
UK flag (b.1954)
Brother of Andrew Grant

Lee Child is British but moved with his family from Cumbria to the United States to start a new career as an American thriller writer. His first novel, Killing Floor, won the Anthony Award, and his second, Die Trying, won W H Smith's Thumping Good Read Award.

He lives just outside New York City, with his American wife, Jane. They have a grown-up daughter, Ruth, and a small dog called Jenny. Lee fills his spare time with music, reading, and the New York Yankees. He likes to travel, for vacations, but especially on promotion tours so he can meet his readers, to whom he is eternally grateful.

Lee Child recommends
thumb
Extinction (2024)
Douglas Preston
"A thriller as breathlessly riveting as you would expect from a genre master like Doug Preston, but much more too: it's meaty and thought-provoking, and tells us a lot about our distant past -- and our immediate future. Spectacular!"
thumb
Baby X (2024)
Kira Peikoff
"Once again Peikoff gives us a breathless thriller - with an ending you totally won't see coming - that leaves us wondering if it could be real. Fantastic!"
thumb
Leave no Trace (2024)
(National Parks Thriller, book 1)
A J Landau
"A great story and an intriguing issue... a solid winner!"
