Lee Child has three new books coming out in August – The Affair in paperback on the 16th August, the new brilliant novel A Wanted Man on the 30th August followed by the Tom Cruise film hitting cinemas at Christmas – Jack Reacher and Lee Child are really going for it this year!

As I’m sure you can imagine, all of this is keeping Lee very busy over the next few months, but luckily for us he’s agreed to spare an afternoon to meet some of our readers!

Yes, the man himself has offered to take you and a friend for a drink – and it doesn’t have to be a coffee as Reacher would have! The venue will be the impressive American Bar at the Savoy Hotel in London, between 5:30pm and 6:30pm on the 4th September 2012. As a memento of the occasion Lee will also give you a signed copy of A Wanted Man.

To enter, simply leave us a comment and tell us which is your favourite Lee Child novel and why, using no more than 150 words. The winning answer will be the one which the judges deem the most persuasive!

We’re out to find Jack Reacher’s biggest fans so give it your best shot!

We’re standing by and can’t wait to read your answers!
