Waterstones Says

Reacher returns in another pulsating lone wolf thriller about dirty money and even dirtier secrets. An elderly couple in peril set our redoubtable hero on a collision course with a rogues’ gallery of hoodlums and heavies, and, this time, Reacher may well have met his match.

Shortlisted for the British Book Awards Crime & Thriller Book of the Year 2020

Longlisted for the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2020

‘This is a random universe,’ he says. ‘Once in a blue moon things turn out just right.’

In a nameless city, two ruthless rival criminal gangs, one Albanian, the other Ukrainian, 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 ... obviously 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 possibly have on the old guy? Will Reacher sit back and let bad things happen? Or can he twist the situation to everyone’s benefit?

MEDIA REVIEWS

It is tremendously comforting to be in the hands of Child and his hero - a good man who we know will save the day in the end before moving on, toothbrush in pocket, "just the clothes on his back. No particular place to go, and all the time in the world to get there." - Observer

Lee Child is the absolute master of the story of a lone stranger arriving in town to save the innocent, and this is one of the best of his series...as always, the violence is ferocious and fast-moving. Anyone feeling hard done by or facing insuperable odds will be comforted by this novel, which is also the best advertisement for the NHS I have ever seen. - Literary Review

Forget Marvel - we all know Jack Reacher is the only avenger that matters...Child has found his mojo again. - Sun

There's only one Jack Reacher. Accept no substitutes.

Jack Reacher, the 21st-century knight errant who over 23 books has proved himself the most reliable excellent basher of bad guys since [James]Bond...And good work, Lee Child. If you're at all partial to his revenge fantasies, this is one of the best for a while...your hands keep turning those pages, drawn in by storytelling that knows fancy words count for less than clarity and rhythm...It's nonsense. Yet it's compelling nonsense, a vicarious clearing away of life's obstacles via a hero who has no moral qualms, no physical or emotional vulnerability and no interest in what shampoo he uses. - The Times

“Great stuff!”

Another day, another bunch of really, really bad people chasing Reacher across town, determined to finish him off in an incredibly ungentlemanly fashion as he does his best to protect those that need protecting. This... More

“He’s still got it.”

Will Lee Child ever stop writing!? Let’s hope not! I’d have thought after all these years and all these stories, he may have bored with Reacher. But no, he’s back and he’s just as good as ever.
Blue Moon’s formula... More

“Review from hubby”

My husband managed to get his hands on this to read before me.... his verdict is - Lee Child's best yet!
He can be a tough audience so this is certainly praise! (hopefully I will get to read this soon)
