BLUE MOON by Lee Child (a Jack Reacher Novel)

January 20th, 2020

“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 & 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 has made a few well-meaning mistakes & now they owe big money to some very bad people.  One brazen move leads to another & suddenly Reacher finds himself a wanted man in the middle of a brutal turf war between rival Ukrainian & Albanian gangs.

Reacher has to stay one step ahead of the loan sharks, the thugs, & the assassins.  He teams up with a fed-up waitress who knows a little more than she’s letting on, & sets out to take down the powerful & 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.
