Lee Child on Radio 4's Front Row

Lee Child was on last Wednesday's Front Row programme:
Bestselling British writer Lee Child on creating one of the most popular heroes of current crime thrillers: Jack Reacher, ex US army special investigator, who returns in Child's new novel Nothing to Lose.
You can listen again to Wednesday's programme (for a couple more days) or you can download the podcast in which he also 'appears'.

Tomorrow's programme (19.15-19.45) has:
Mark Lawson investigating the life and work of the leading Victorian detective Jack Whicher, in the light of a new book by Kate Summerscale. Whicher's most famous case inspired novelists such as Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins.

I saw a poster at Kings Cross this morning, likening Jack Reacher to Jack Bauer to encourage people to read. I am just waiting for the publicity for the next 24 series to liken Jack Bauer to Jack Reacher to encourage people to watch.
