#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • THE BLOCKBUSTER JACK REACHER SERIES THAT INSPIRED TWO MAJOR MOTION PICTURES AND THE STREAMING SERIES REACHER
“Jack Reacher is today’s James Bond, a thriller hero we can’t get enough of.”—Ken Follett
“This is a random universe,” Reacher says. “Once in a blue moon things turn out just right.”
This isn’t one of those times.
Reacher is on a Greyhound bus, minding his own business, with no particular place to go, and all the time in the world to get there. Then he steps off the bus to help an old man who is obviously just a victim waiting to happen. But you know what they say about good deeds. Now Reacher wants to make it right.
An elderly couple have made a few well-meaning mistakes, and now they owe big money to some very bad people. One brazen move leads to another, and suddenly Reacher finds himself a wanted man in the middle of a brutal turf war between rival Ukrainian and Albanian gangs.
Reacher has to stay one step ahead of the loan sharks, the thugs, and the assassins. He teams up with a fed-up waitress who knows a little more than she’s letting on, and sets out to take down the powerful and make the greedy pay. It’s a long shot. The odds are against him. But Reacher believes in a certain kind of justice . . . the kind that comes along once in a blue moon.
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY EVENING STANDARD
This was bad. Way too much killing. Was this a Jack Reacher Novel? I’m not sure what I read. This was a bit much. The waitress is able to handle a gun and shoot like the former Military guys in the story. That was odd.I guess on to the next one.35
This was what was expected from a Reacher story well written and descriptive enough to imagine seeing everything as it happened.55
A good story but moved a little slow.45
Reacher is the modern day Paladin, an unattached knight errant with his own sense of right and wrong and how to make the wrong right again. He is not employed by any other retainer than his own moral compass. That is the success of Lee Child’s knight. It is also the success of the saga of Jack Reacher. - Mission Capable55
I’ve read so many Jack Reacher stories, and I really enjoyed them. This one is, in my opinion, sloppy and ridiculous.15
I love getting lost in a Jack Reacher novel!55
The Reacher series is usually reading that can’t be put down. This one, in my opinion, was a dud and hard to follow. Time to start the next one.15
Great Read 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽55
Interesting plot. Well researched and typical terrific Child narrative. A little over the top in terms of Reacher’s invincibility and whomever sides with him. Nonetheless entertaining and satisfying. Always impressed how Child comes up with new ways Reacher makes things right45
This is a very good book. Reacher at his finest and a good supporting group. Quite brutal.55
