Blue Moon: A Jack Reacher Novel
Jack Reacher favors the underdog in the world, the scrappy types facing an uphill climb. When Reacher foresees a potential mugging of an elderly individual, Reacher ventures off his bus and into the man’s life. In another part of the same city, competing Ukranian and Albanian mobs have reached an uneasy detente. The Ukranian boss drops a couple of names of alleged informers to the Albanians as a peace offering, disguising his true motivations. Reacher, having saved the older gentleman, is now privy to his predicament. A large payment is due to a loan shark from the Albanian mob, and time is of the essence. The absence of the lender leads to Reacher assuming the elderly man’s identity when paying the money back. As Reacher learns more about the man and his financial calamity, the duty he has long held as a soldier burns deep. As the desperate hours pass into days, Reacher is now marked and bodies start to drop. A mob war has erupted; who will emerge in the end?
Blue Moon is the newest release in the action laced Jack Reacher story. Lee Child has not lost footing in grasping the reader’s attention from minute one of his books. Reacher remains stoic in his loyal work for the downtrodden, his humor sharp and dark. The characters are eclectic and well-composed. Child’s work never fails to be irresistible.
