Summary
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • THE BLOCKBUSTER JACK REACHER SERIES THAT INSPIRED TWO MAJOR MOTION PICTURES AND THE STREAMING SERIES REACHER

“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.

Jack Reacher becomes a John Wick in this book Reacher kills instead of fighting. Not one of his best books.

Best Reacher novel yet and it's been my pleasure to read them all.. Great plot line with classic one liners and a steady flow of action. Writers made good use of interesting former military veteran characters in developing the story line.

It pains me so much to rate this 2 stars. I have been a Jack Reacher groupie for 10+ years, but this book falls far below what I’ve come to expect from Child. Scattered, disjointed, uneasy flow are a few adjectives I’d attribute. Lee Child please don’t leave us now, bring Jack back.

Overall, a great book to listen to at the gym or walking. There are some incongruities in terms of fiscal issues not being checked - not always realistic . Overall, I enjoyed it.

Having Scott Brick be the voice of Jack Reacher is a win win for the reader. A great story!

Too predictable and unrealistic. I guess I am just tired of unrealistic heroes.

Classic Jack Reacher - see evil and fight evil regardless of the cause or the cause. A modern knight errant seeking the holy grail of justice for lifestyle underdogs. Good story.

I think I'm spoiled by Dick Hill's ability to follow Reacher's train of thought in his conversations with the other characters and bring it to life. Scott seems to speed read through some sections with out understanding the nuance of either his investigative style or how he will attempt to motivate others to a desired affect.

Three stars simply because Dick Hill IS Jack Reacher for audiobook addicts who have listened through the whole series. Scott Brick didn’t help a narrative which was certainly the most violence-ridden/least subtle Reacher novel to date, I’m confident Mr Child will insist on retaining Mr Hill for his next, more thoughtful/insightful novel in the Reacher tradition!

Reacher has his hands full with two rival gangs that taunt his hometown. He takes on the challenge of solving 13 year old murders when a current murder points to the past. Lots of intrigue and thinking in this one.
