Plot or Premise

Cover: Blue Moon by Lee Child

Reacher wanders into a town and accidentally flames the fires of a turf war between the Albanian and Ukainian mobs.

What I Liked

The progression from what Reacher sees at the start to the war with the 2 mobs is awesome, and the almost slapstick element the way the mob interprets what’s happening reminded me of the Remo Williams series. Good escalation throughout.

What I Didn’t Like

The secondary characters were a bit, well, odd. Too ready to jump in and kill bad guys, and the waitress can suddenly figure out battle plans. Plus, Reacher is too violent even for him, regardless of the repeated justification of the shoe being on the other foot. 

The Bottom Line
