Blue Moon - Jack Reacher, Bk 24 Author:Lee Child “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.

I always look forward to the Jack Reacher books. Reacher appears to be in over his head again with the Albanians and Ukrainians this time. He is doing a good deed for a couple in need. He gets some help along the way. Reacher grows on me with every book. He is analytical, driven, and logical. He tells you how he is thinking and logically deduces the best way to solve a problem or a situation and most of the time it works the way he describes it. He has a softer side as well, but he doesn't stay in one place for any length of time and has no home base. He is a very likeable and a lovable character. I look forward to his next adventure.
Another GREAT read by Lee Child If you have enjoyed his previous Jack Reacher stories this one will again captivate you and propel you to the edge of your seat in a thrilling fast paced ride of heroics and military strategy with some personal nuances added
