I received a press release today from Transworld about a new Jack Reacher book from Lee Child (in addition to the upcoming The Affair) which will be digital only:
Second Son by Lee Child will be published as an exclusive, specially priced eBook globally on 15th August 2011. It will also be released as an audio digital download. This is the first time Transworld has published a major author in digital exclusive format.
Ever wondered what early experiences shaped Reacher’s explosive career as butt-kicker supreme, the oneman guided missile battler for justice?
Lee Child takes his millions of readers back in time, to a family living on a military base in the Pacific, and to its youngest son – a quiet, brilliant, and already heroic thirteen year old named Jack Reacher.
It's been reported on The Bookseller that there are no plans to release it as a print book.
The press release also states that "Paramount has confirmed that One Shot will be filmed with Tom Cruise in the starring role as Jack Reacher".
