Blue Moon

Blue Moon

“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.

    As you know, I'm a fan of Lee Child. This one's pure escapism: well-plotted; action-packed, adventurous. The plot is basically a reworking of A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS, and it was a lot of fun, but I sense...

    When I clicked "I'm finished," my thought was possibly with Lee Child. He seems to be a diminishing writer with diminishing stories and a diminished character with Reacher. I listened to this and Scot...

    When I finished Blue Moon I sat for a while and tried to rationalise why I enjoy this series so much. After all there is an awful lot of minutely described violence, which I usually do not enjoy at al...

    Turning to the latest Jack Reacher thriller, I was very eager to get my hands on it to see what Lee Child had concocted for his most versatile protagonist. The story opens in a nondescript American to...

  • Ruth

    We readers have just lost one of our fictional but moral good guy heroes. The Reacher of past books--smart and tough with a very strong history of standing up for the innocent--disappears in this late...

    Worst Jack Reacher Novel EverI have read every Lee Child Novel. I wait every year for the next Jack Reacher to come out. I love these books. This was a colossal fail. The premise of a company not rene...
