Lee Child (the pen name of James Grant), the author of the best-selling Jack Reacher novels, is handing over the writing duties to his younger brother.

Andrew Grant, aged 51, is already an established author and will write under the pen name Andrew Child.

Child feels that he “ageing out” of being able to produce more of the books, so has decided “to pass the baton to someone who can.” He describes his younger sibling as the “best tough-guy writer I have read in years,” saying “he’s me, fifteen years ago, full of energy and ideas.”
