by Craig B.
When Jim Grant was sacked from Granada Television in 1995 after 18 years of service, he was incensed. He knew that he and new management didn’t exactly see eye-to-eye, but he hadn’t expected to come back from vacation and find a termination letter on his work computer. So he decided to get even. No, he didn’t go back to the office and start swinging a bat. Instead, he went home and started wielding a pen. He created a fictional hero who could do his revenge for him. In 1997, Jim Grant had taken on the pen name Lee Child, and the world was introduced to literary vigilante Jack Reacher.
