Blue Moon By Lee Child Description

[PDF] Blue Moon By Lee Child. '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.

    As usual, Lee Child has produced another version of Jack Reacher weaving his magic with another ingenious plot of intrigue and plot twists. As a bonus, a very contemporary back story involving overseas interests and bad guys.

    I like these books and they are better written than most in this genre this century. this edition presents a more modern Reacher and storyline somewhat updated for the new electronic age, using ATMs and carrying ID, filling out forms and now with living expenses of about $1,500 per week... still significantly from spoils of war. Modern technology gets a look-in, he’s working with a team. All worthy updates, and it feels like a bit of a reboot for cinema, not unlike Alistair MacLean after films began to be made of his books. Pretty much for the first time he is not the only character with real world experience and street smarts, and other characters are delivering lines that in previous editions would have been delivered by Reacher... It feels a bit more written-for-hollywood following some action movie formula... the reason for the 2 star rating- this is not the moral Reacher from previous books, the body count is like watching Stallone in Cobra... they just kill everyone because... someone they don’t know has cancer and that’s not fair. Strangely, Reacher looks to others for approval before committing murder whereas in the past he has no need or care for the authorisation or moral code of others. This is not the same character we know from the previous books. It’s a little bit “Dukes of Hazard” with predictable bad guys dropping like flies and the police never showing up at all. But, as ever, there are a number of details that are unnecessarily annoying or contradictory and it still appears that the editors are letting the author down. He needs a better editor who takes more responsibility/care for the character.

    I was somewhat disappointed with this book. I have read Mr. Child's entire collection of Reacher novels (some twice) and with Blue Moon being #24 I'm sad to say that it may be time for Jack and his toothbrush to 'hop off the bus.'
