I finally made it to the final Jack Reacher installment in the series written solely by Lee Child. I remember hearing the news that Lee Child was retiring and handing over the Jack Reacher character to his brother Andrew Child, and I immediately panicked. I dreaded getting to the final book written by Lee Child, and now that I have I’m at peace with the changes awaiting. Blue Moon is an excellent story and a wonderful “final” book. I have the closure I think I needed.

I found a great article that was published in the Washington Post in October 2023, where journalist Sophia Nguyen interviewed the brothers at their homes near Laramie, Wyoming about the transition of authorship for the Jack Reacher series. It’s worth the read if you’re a fan of these books. Included in the article are some great photographs too. I have linked the article in my blog post, which is linked below.

The story of Blue Moon opens with Jack Reacher on a Greyhound bus with no particular destination in mind. He observes an elderly man with an envelope of cash, and a younger kid sizing up the man. Reacher follows the man off the bus to monitor the situation and intervenes when the kid attempts to rob the man. He assists the man to his destination, and only begins to learn the gravity of the trouble this gentle person has gotten himself into. This event sparks Reacher’s journey into a town overtaken by the war between the Ukrainian and Albanian gangs.

Blue Moon exceeded my expectations. Reacher continues to be an invincible character, willing to take on two villainous gangs. He also wins the affection of a waitress tired of the tension and injustice in her town. Reacher’s brief love affairs continue to entertain.

I borrowed the audiobook from my local library through the Libby app. One of my favorite narrators, Scott Brick, did an outstanding performance.

I have photos and additional information that I'm unable to include here. It can all be found on my blog, in the link below.

I've read better Jack Reacher novels. Yes there is the usual action with Reacher getting out of impossible situations. Having said that, I did not finish this book. Not sure I'll read any more Jack Reacher novels again. To many books and not enough time.
