James D. "Jim" Grant (born 29 October 1954), primarily known by his pen name Lee Child, is a British author who writes thriller novels, and is best known for his Jack Reacher novel series. The books follow the adventures of a former American military policeman, Jack Reacher, who wanders the United States.
Too Much Time: In this original novella featuring Jack Reacher after his time in the army, Reacher finds himself in a hollowed-out town in Maine. He witnesses a random bag-snatching but sees much more than a simple crime, in a tale that leads into Lee Child's new Reacher novel, The Midnight Line.
Sometimes they are a little too long and it makes you wonder why the author didn't just flesh out the story and characters more for a full length book. Too Much Time, however, is the perfect length with the perfect amount of mystery where the characters are fleshed out just enough.

Lee Child is a work of fiction. That is neither his first name nor his surname. And, while the author of the Jack Reacher novels has been based in New York for many years now and writes his page ...
Jack Reacher is a drifter and ex-military policeman. Each book in the series is a self-contained story, and the plot of each book relies very little on the prior books in the series.
Lee Child has also been the recipient of several awards including the Anthony and the Barry awards for Best First Mystery for his first Jack Reacher novel, “Killing Floor.” Another Reacher novel, “The Enemy”, won the Barry and the Nero awards for Best Novel.
