#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • 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.

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

    By BrianL99
    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.
  • Dull and rambling

    By jackmayy
    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...
  • Predictably terrible

    By theOGbatman
    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.
  • Finally smart again

    By Big Max 1
    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.

    Worst book ever by this author. The book is more of a blatant attack on the women of Ukraine than a novel. The author did not do his research and it shows. I’ll never read him again.
  • Good plot, interesting story

    By Tindermeat101
    I’d say one of Lee Child’s better 50% of Jack Reacher novels.

    I have read them all and love the series. However, this one was not at all realistic, was a tad boring and over the top with loose ends.

    Tough to read. Caught up in too much minutiae. Situations just too extreme to be plausible. Write it a little more realistic, let Hollywood gloss up the movie version.
  • Boring and Predictable

    By Barefoot SC
    Do not waste money. This book was full of wasted words just to make more pages. So unlike this author. You can skip entire chapter and miss nothing. Very disappointed
