A series of novels by British-born Lee Child, about [[YanksWithTanks ex-Military Policeman]] Jack Reacher, WalkingTheEarth after mustering out from over a decade of service. A MilitaryBrat, having spent his younger years being posted all round the world, he decides to get a closer look at his home country. On his journeys across America he stumbles across his fair share of forgers, smugglers, gun runners, drug dealers and assassins. [[BlatantLies He then proceeds to sit down with each of them in turn and have civilized discussions -over a lovely cup of tea- why they really should stop all this unpleasant business and whatnot]].

Received a film adaptation based on the novel ''One Shot'' titled ''Jack Reacher'', which was directed and written by Christopher [=McQuarrie=], starring TomCruise in the lead role with Rosamund Pike, Richard Jenkins, Robert Duvall and WernerHerzog also starring.
----
!!Tropes applying to this series:
* AmateurSleuth: Not really, as Reacher spent over a decade as a decorated and skilled investigative MP, but since mustering out he's technically "amateur".
* AuthorCatchphrase: "Reacher said nothing." Seriously, Child has got that macroed.
** Also, "That's for damn sure."
* BadAss: Reacher is BadAss Incarnate
* BadassBoast: Reacher spits these out by the truckload in the movie.
--> '''Gary''': Well, I need to see something.
--> '''Reacher''': How about the inside of an ambulance?
* BadassDriver: While he's described as an average driver in the novels, he's quite the driver in the film (in which all the stunts were done by TomCruise).
* BattleInTheRain: The final battle of the movie takes place in the middle of the rain.
* TheBigGuy: Reacher stands at 6ft'5, and is built like a brick wall.
** PintsizedPowerhouse: On the other hand, he's played by the short TomCruise in the film version of ''One Shot''.
* BusmansHoliday: In his never ending sightseeing journey of USA, Reacher stumbles into more than a few conspiracies and criminals. HilarityEnsues.
* TheCameo: The film adaptation of ''One Shot'' has Lee Child appear as a desk sergeant in one scene.
* ContrivedCoincidence: In ''The Killing Floor'', Reacher just happens to wander into the town [[spoiler: his brother was very recently murdered in]].
** The Affair tries to justify this with messages back and forth to his brother in that town, and about Blind Blake. Then Reacher takes his mustering out.
* {{Determinator}}
* DidNotGetTheGirl: At least occasionally. For example, [[spoiler:in ''Die Trying'', while Reacher and Holly Johnson have a clear attraction and at one point engage in GladToBeAliveSex, she is in love with someone else and moves in with (and probably marries) him at the end of the novel. Reacher himself [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy just wants her to be happy]], though hes more than a little disappointed about it.]]
** [[spoiler: At least she makes it out of the novel alive, unlike Secret Service agent/love interest M.E. Froelich in ''Without Fail'', who not only takes a bullet protecting the Vice-President-elect but expires in Reacher's arms afterwards.]]
* DomesticAbuse: ''Echo Burning.''
* ExtremeDoormat: Most of the Duncans' neighbors in ''Worth Dying For'' fall into this trope, especially the motel owner and the doctor. They spend most of the book doing whatever Reacher or the Duncans want them to.
* GirlOfTheWeek: Each book tends to have Reacher teaming up with a young, attractive woman, who he inevitably sleeps with (although to Child's credit, a [[IncompatibleOrientation curveball]] is thrown once or twice).
** In the ''Jack Reacher'' movie, [[spoiler: Jack does NOT sleep with the GirlOfTheWeek, although there was a scene early on where she thought he was going to try.]]
* GuiltByCoincidence: The whole plot of ''Worth Dying For'' is set in motion when Seth Duncan's wife shows evidence of being a battered woman, and Reacher locates Duncan and breaks his nose in retaliation. It turns out that [[spoiler:Duncan ''does'' have a history of hitting his wife, and everyone in town knows it, but in this specific instance it was actually two criminal thugs pressuring Duncan who attacked her, not Duncan himself.]]
* IcyBlueEyes: Of the "piercing and icy" variety.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Forms part of a thread throughout the movie; Reacher notes that Barr is a decent sniper, but not good enough for the five kills. Reacher himself displays this when he dispatches [[spoiler: Emerson]], as on the Awesome page, though it's also established that he was a Wimbeldon Cup contender, albeit one with rusty skills. [[note]]The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wimbledon_Cup Wimbeldon Cup]] is a prestigious marksmanship competition, with many of the top shooters in the US military competing. Previous winners include Carlos Hathcock, founder of the USMC Scout Sniper school.[[/note]]
* ItsPersonal: Some of the cases he looks into directly involve things from his military days that leads to Reacher doing everything to kill the bad guy. The Killing Floor has the death of his brother, the deaths of the former members of his squad in ''Bad Luck and Trouble'', and sighting the bad guy he thought dead in the Persauder, and he was on his way to kill the fall guy in One Shot when he ran into the conspiracy set up by the Russian.
* KnightErrant: Jack Reacher is a great contemporary example. He roams the countryside (a good part of the US), saves damsels in distress (when he's not sleeping with them) and gives villains no quarter.
* LastNameBasis: He is known as Reacher, by everyone including his mother. One person managed to use this as a warning.
* MajorlyAwesome: According to the movie, Reacher was a Major in the US Army, before getting busted down to Captain, and working his way back up to Major, prior to mustering out.
* OrgyOfEvidence: In ''One Shot'', this is what the case against James Barr becomes. However, what makes Reacher suspicious is not the amount of evidence, but [[spoiler: that the investigative team thought to look for a clue that they had no reason to believe existed.]]
* TheProfiler: Reacher can track people by their patterns of behavior.
** Subverted in ''Bad Luck and Trouble'' when his former sergeant profiled him better than he profiled her and was waiting on him at the Denny's.
* RightWingMilitiaFanatic[=/=]CrazySurvivalist: The main villains of ''Die Trying''.
* RussianGuySuffersMost: Played straight in ''One Shot''.
* SaidBookism: ''Averted.'' Even the AuthorCatchphrase has the word "said" in it. You can find "said" after countless lines of dialogue, ranging from questions to back-and-forth conversations.
* SherlockScan: Reacher is pretty good at these, probably due to his wide range of experience as a former military policeman. More than one reviewer has described him as a sort of modern-day Sherlock Holmes.
* ShownTheirWork: While the books are not infallible, Child has strong knowledge of the military and its strategy, and lets you know it.
* {{Silence is Golden}}: Multiple sections of the film of ''One Shot'' are conducted with no dialogue whatsoever, such as the car chase and the BattleInTheRain near the end of the movie.
* SociopathicSoldier: In the film adaptation of ''One Shot'', Jack lists four different types of soldiers that he knew from experience -- {{Military Brat}}s who followed their parents into the military, [[MyCountryRightOrWrong patriots]], [[JoinTheArmyTheySaid people looking for work]], and these types, people who join so that they can kill without repercussions. [[spoiler: James Barr was this type, having eventually snapped and gone on a shooting rampage in Baghdad just so that he could feed his urge to kill; the only reason he got away with it was because, unbeknownst to him, [[KickTheSonOfABitch his victims]] [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil all had it coming]], and the PMC that they worked for didn't pursue justice because they knew that the victims' crimes would be exposed if they did so.]]
* SuperDetailedFightNarration: pretty much without exception. Every fight scene in the series will take at least three times as long to read out loud as it would take to occur.
* {{Superdickery}}: The beginning of ''Persuader.''
* TitleDrop[=/=]JustifiedTitle: Every novel in the series.
* [[TropesAreTools Tropes Are Not Bad]]: [[TemptingFate There's no way]] a MartyStu could result in an enjoyable read for any reason besides SoBadItsGood. Right?
* VillainTeamUp: In ''Worth Dying For'', three criminal bosses each send some of their men to Nebraska to help the Duncans take down Reacher. Thanks to a combination of [[spoiler:PoorCommunicationKills and [[EnemyCivilWar all three factions having orders to eliminate the other two once Reacher is dead]], the team-up doesn't last very long.]]
* [[WhyWereBummedCommunismFell Why We're Bummed Communism Fell]]: The collapse of the Berlin Wall is a major plot point in ''The Enemy''. The cutbacks that followed in subsequent years are the implied reason Reacher left.
** Subverted - the actual reason is given in ''61 Hours''; [[spoiler: Reacher built up a case against a general who had been selling food supplies that should have gone to his troops in the Gulf. The general laughed at him and got his skull broken complete with a six month coma. Only the strength of the case saved Reacher from outright discharge, but his commanding days were over.]]
*** The Affair covers his early retirement and the fact that he killed a congressman and a commanding officer of a special forces team for the murder and cover up of three girls near a training facility for the army.
** In the movie, Reacher musters out after the US withdrawl from Iraq.
