Don’t miss a thrilling preview of Lee Child’s highly anticipated new Jack Reacher novel, Past Tense!
On Christmas Eve, Jack Reacher stumbles into a no-name bar in the California desert, desperate to take refuge from an unexpected snowstorm. Reacher came to Barstow for a little R&R. Instead, he’s sequestered in a dark little roadhouse with a bartender, a bewildered elderly couple—and two members of Britain’s Royal Military Police. They tell Reacher they were escorting a VIP to a top-secret meeting at a U.S. military base when they became separated from their charge. That’s when the threat came in from a notorious assassin: the Christmas Scorpion. Now they need a miracle to save the day. Or maybe all they need is Jack Reacher.

    A waste of my money and time. Not a story...barely a story line...full of holes & unbelievable observations.
  • Rubbish

    Love Jack Reacher....hate this story.
  • Don’t buy

    By Dawn7677
    Love all the Reacher Books, but this one is not worth the 2 bucks. Should have been longer!
  • Not worth

    By bonusmemo
    I read about 6 to 7 Reacher books and this one must be a test to see how many people would pay 1.99 for a childish plot and story that has the same character. Stay away.

    While I'm a huge Jack Reacher fan and have read every last one of the books, this is a waste of your $2. About 2 pages longer than the sample
  • Underwhelming

    By PapaBear60
    No JR action and very little deductive reasoning. This “book” was barely an introduction.
  • Lee, you can doo much better .

    Lee, you can do much better.
  • Disappointing

    By Papillion727
    I’ve read all the Jack Reacher books. Trite plot with a lead character who doesn’t resemble the Reacher I know.
  • Not worth $2. Trite
