In the next highly anticipated installment of Lee Child’s acclaimed suspense series, 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.

The parts of Reacher that resonated most with readers had been missing. The last two novels felt…

Initially Comic Plot Soon Turns to Bloody Carnage In the beginning, BLUE MOON: A JACK REACHER NOVEL is comical (like a Donald Westlake novel), as Reacher inadvertently sets off a Ukrainian/Albanian gang war by killing two Albanian quick-loan enforcers. The rival gangs’ misinformed leaders (Dino, Gregory) start knocking off each other’s men, two by two, as they try to keep the score even. But the fun soon shifts to grim bloody carnage, once the gang leaders identify Reacher as the catalyst for their losses.In the novel, Reacher…

Reacher in peak form, nothing better There’s a strict formula to Reacher novels: big man gets off a bus in a small town, bumps into bad men doing bad things to decent people.In this case, it’s an unnamed town ruled by rival factions of Ukrainians and Albanians, and an older couple in deep to a loan shark on the Ukraine side. Reacher steps in, intending to do one small good deed, but things escalate — as they tend to do, in Reacher’s world — and within a day, Reacher finds himself in the middle of an escalating gang war, where…
