You don't get much better than an all-action thriller with a hero lead character that keeps you up long into the night turning the pages to let more of their story unfold.

Here are five all-action hero book series I'd recommend you read:

Jack Reacher Series

By Lee Child

Jack Reacher is a drifting former military policeman, who left the Army just 'because,' who roams the United States taking odd jobs and investigating suspicious and frequently dangerous situations. At 6'5" tall, he's a force to be reckoned with, as the villains in Child's books come to find out.

First Book - Killing Floor

John Puller Series

By David Baldacci

John Puller is a combat veteran and the best military investigator in the U.S. Army’s Criminal Investigation Division. His father was an Army fighting legend, and his brother is serving a life sentence for treason in a federal military prison. Puller has an indomitable spirit and an unstoppable drive to find the truth.

First Book - Zero Day

Jon Reznick Series

By J.B. Turner

Jon Reznick is a “ghost”: a black-ops specialist who takes his orders from shadowy handlers, and his salary from the US government. Still mourning the loss of his beloved wife on 9/11, he works hard to shield his daughter from the shadowy world in which he moves. But keeping work and family separate is not easy when you’re a government hit man sent around the world to eliminate threats to national security.

First Book - Hard Road

John Milton Series

By Mark Dawson

John Milton is an artisan. A master of killing. He’s the man the British government calls on to eliminate the worst of the worst: the enemies of the state that MI5 and even the military can’t stop. But years of state-sanctioned murder have taken their toll. Milton is troubled by nightmares, a long line of ghosts who torment his dreams. He resolves to make his next job his last and, then, perhaps, he can start to make amends for everything that he has done.

First Book - The Cleaner

James Bond Series

By Ian Fleming

James Bond, designated Agent 007 (always articulated as “double-oh-seven”) in the British Secret Intelligence Service, or MI6, is a superspy, trained in intelligence and special forces, who's as adept at using a plethora of futuristic to downright-franky-ridiculous gadgets to kill bad guys as he is suave at seducing women.

First Book - Casino Royale

Joe Beck Series

By Alastair Brown

Joe Beck is America's Unlicensed Private Detective. A former cop from Nebraska, turned outlaw private eye after being released from prison, having being sent down for a crime he didn't commit, he roams the length and breadth of America righting wrongs and reaping riches whilst serving up his own brand of vigilante justice to those who deserve it most. A 6'5" tall, muscle-bound hulk of a human, you'd best hope you're not standing in his way.
