Blue Moon: (Jack Reacher 24) Lee Childby: Lee Child
AS FEATURED ON RICHARD & JUDY’S ‘KEEP READING AND CARRY ON’ ‘This is one of his best’ – The Times Jack Reacher is back in a brand new white-knuckle read from Lee Child. It’s a random universe, but once in a blue moon things turn out just right. In a nameless city, two rival criminal gangs are competing for control. But they hadn’t counted on Jack Reacher arriving on their patch. Reacher is trained to notice things. He’s on a Greyhound bus, watching an elderly man sleeping in his seat, with a fat envelope of cash hanging out of his pocket. Another passenger is watching too … hoping to get rich quick. As the mugger makes his move, Reacher steps in. The old man is grateful, yet he turns down Reacher’s offer to help him home. He’s vulnerable, scared, and clearly in big, big trouble. What hold could the gangs have on the old guy? Will Reacher be in time to stop bad things happening? The odds are better with Reacher involved. That’s for damn sure. ‘Everyone needs to kick some [butt] sometimes, even if it’s just imaginary’ JOJO MOYES
Reacher returns in another pulsating lone wolf thriller about dirty money and even dirtier secrets. An elderly couple in peril set our redoubtable hero on a collision course with a rogues’ gallery of hoodlums and heavies, and, this time, Reacher may well have met his match.
‘Lee Child just gets better and better, which is a very rare quality in a writer of a long-run series.’ – Peter James
Hard on the heels of the superlative Past Tense, Jack Reacher returns for his 24th adventure, and the odds are as tough as ever.
Deep in the American heartland, Reacher comes to the aid of an elderly couple, aid which proves to be a trigger to his most dangerous adventure yet. This autumn, a Blue Moon is rising.
