#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.… (mehr)

Blue Moon is a good story. The tone is established on page one wherein it captivates the reader through the completion of the book. There is blood and gore in this good guy vs. bad guy book. There were four stars awarded in this review for the book, Blue Moon just being a good story. ( )

Where Has Jack Reacher Gone?

The Jack Reacher of old would be the guy plotting to eliminate the Jack Reacher of Blue Moon. Because sometime after the opening of the novel, this Jack Reacher becomes unhinged and transforms into nothing less than a homicidal maniac.

In this outing, Reacher squares off against a bunch of mobsters, Ukrainians on one side and Albanians on the other. These are bad guys doing the usual bad guy things, and even at that they come off better than Reacher, though not only are they criminals but they are cardboard cutout criminals dressed in black suits; that is, even at that they have more substance than this Reacher. Having read all the Reacher novels up this point and until recently admiring Reacher’s character, Blue Moon feels like the precursor to a bad end for the series. Perhaps Lee Child should take a hint from quality television series fare and bring things to a close on a higher note, because it appears the creative juices have gone sluggish.

Here, Reacher finds himself in an unnamed medium size city rescuing an old man who is about to fall prey to a young thug. The man has a wad of cash in his pocket. Turns out he and his wife have a daughter. She is being treated for an unnamed pernicious cancer. Out of money and goods, they have been paying for her treatment with loan shark money. Well, that offends Reacher’s self-righteousness and he sets out to correct the situation. Then he finds himself in a bar and music joint where he and the young waitress take a shine to each other. They tumble into bed and mercifully Child does not go into the gruesome details of their lovemaking, gruesome because he has amply demonstrated he cannot write anything approaching a decent love scene.

Anyway, one thing leads to another with plenty of confusion ensuing. However, Reacher calculates that these bad guys, who really don’t seem any badder that those he’s encountered in the past twenty years or so—these bad guys have to go; all of them; all of them in hails of gunfire and crushed skulls. If that isn’t enough, twice in this novel, Reacher holds a defenseless person at gunpoint and decides with the approval of his ragtag band of vigilantes that he has earned a death sentence. With a body count approaching nearly a hundred, it might seem odd to single out two. However, these two outright murders demonstrate how far over the edge Reacher has gone. You might say, but it’s only fiction, only make-believe. Yes, but many fans admire Jack Reacher. He represents the epitome of an upstanding guy, one who will right wrongs. Though a tad self-righteous, he’s still the kind of man you’d want around if things are headed south. Judicious, thoughtful, cunning, and fair, these are character traits to admire. This Jack Reacher, though, is simply a cold-blooded killer. It’s a sad denouement to his career. ( )

The expected Lee Child /Jack Reacher formula: Taut writing, explosive action and plot twists - yet in this one the body count spirals off the scale, the brutality verges on the sadistic, with a plot that ultimately stretches the credulity. Therefore, not as richly satisfying as earlier examples of the cannon, but still pretty good fun to read. ( )
  DramMan | Oct 10, 2021 |
It's horrifying that this book has a GR rating of 4.2. 2 stars is generous. Jack Reacher is riding on a bus, sees a crime developing, and saves an old man from being robbed of a substantial sum of money he needs to repay a loan shark for money used for cancer treatments for his daughter. Jack decides to help, and finds himself as the catalyst in a deadly turf war between rival gangs (Albanians and Ukranians.) The body count is extraordinary, between Jack dispensing justice and the rival gang's actions against each other and even themselves.

NB: GR rating has finally declined below 4 (to 3.97.) ( )
