Blue Moon

Blue Moon Summary

#1 NEW YORK TIMESBESTSELLER • Jack Reacher comes to the aid of an elderly couple . . . and confronts his most dangerous opponents yet.
“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.

Great book. Lee Child never fails to keep you in suspense.55


Adverbs & Adjectives2 star

I am a HUGE Reacher, Bosch, Davenport et Alia fan. But this book would have been a 30 page report without all the adverbs & adjectives. Personally, I don’t think Lee Child wrote this book, rather he had someone else do the work for him.25

Another great Reacher yarn. Jack is dropping bad guys like flies at a picnic. A little complex plot, but it ends right.55


Pure, unadulterated nonsense.2 star

The worst Jack Reacher novel, ever. I don’t know who wrote this, but it certainly wasn’t Lee Child. This was amateur hour, all the way. The plot was ludicrous, the characters unbelievable and Reacher was a poor imitation of the real thing. As crazy as Tom Cruise playing Reacher may be, this book makes even that seem plausible. If this is what the Jack Reacher has become, the end is neigh.25


Dull and rambling1 star

Worst Reacher novel I’ve read, and I’ve read them all, most more than once. I suspect Lee Child is not the one writing these latest books...15


Predictably terrible1 star

These series has gone to trash. The entire books are now a slow overly explained build to a boring obvious confrontation. Ha e read every book and regretted spending the time on the last 3-4. My fault for expecting more. Just incredibly bad.15

Finally smart again4 star

this book is much much better than I expected, considering how the last 2 weren't that good - Reach goes back to being smart and analytical, which is very satisfying.45
