See the Cover for Jack Carr’s Next James Reece Thriller, ‘In the Blood’

James Reece, the hero first introduced to readers in The Terminal List, returns to anchor Jack Carr’s #1 New York Times bestselling series when In the Blood hits bookstores on April 12, 2022.

Reece, who was last seen in the high-powered thriller The Devil’s Hand—which follows the battle-tested operator as he takes on forces hellbent on striking a major blow to America—has quickly become one of the best characters the thriller genre has to offer.

Back in April, speaking about his next book, Carr told me, “I already have the book six outline complete so that I don’t waste any bandwidth worried about where the story is going as I write book five.  All that bandwidth is focused on making this next book the very best it can be.”

The “explosive and riveting” (Kevin Maurer, co-author of No Easy Day) New York Times bestselling Terminal List series continues as James Reece embarks on a global journey of vengeance.

A woman boards a plane in the African country of Burkina Faso having just completed a targeted assassination for the state of Israel. Two minutes later, her plane is blown out of the sky.

Over 6,000 miles away, former Navy SEAL James Reece watches the names and pictures of the victims on cable news. One face triggers a distant memory of a Mossad operative attached to the CIA years earlier in Iraq—a woman with ties to the intelligence services of two nations…a woman Reece thought he would never see again.

Reece enlists friends new and old across the globe to track down her killer, unaware that he may be walking into a deadly trap.


“James Reece has to deal with some unfinished business in my latest installment of the James Reece Terminal List series – IN THE BLOOD,” said author Jack Carr in an exclusive statement to The Real Book Spy.
“For Reece, it’s a personal mission of vengeance. For his target, it’s business. But this target has a mission of his own. He has studied his prey and is drawing the former Navy SEAL Sniper into the crosshairs. Will James Reece survive, and, if so, will he find his humanity, or will he forever remain an operator, a hunter, a killer of men…an assassin? Find out on April 12, 2022.”
