#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In the next highly anticipated installment of Lee Child’s acclaimed suspense series, 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The ex-military cop with a knack for getting himself into suspenseful situations is back in Lee Child’s twenty-fourth Jack Reacher novel. In this installment…Audiobook listeners can enjoy a thrilling read by narrator Scott Brick, who’s read over 800 audiobooks and is the new voice of the character.” Parade (audio review)
Child is at the top of his game in this nail-biter. Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Reacher is so irresistible a character that he draws fans from every demographic. Booklist (starred review)
“The fight scenes are amazing when those full of themselves make the mistake of violating Reacher’s basic rule of (non) engagement. Each novel’s tempo grows in pace, driving the story like a drumbeat to its satisfying resolution (and the reader’s relief). The finale of Blue Moon feels like the third stage of a moon rocket, exploding toward its destination. Wernher von Braun would be proud.” New York Journal of Books
“Child is at the top of his game in this nail-biter.” Publishers Weekly
“Narrator Scott Brick presents Reacher as strong and determined—at times unbending and at times sympathetic. Brick transitions between the thugs of both mobs and an eclectic group of supporting characters, including a love interest, former military men, and a tech genius in hiding.” AudioFile
