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.

    Good short story. Classic Reacher
  • What a waste

    By jhobbs757
    For $2 I feel it should have taken longer than 5 minutes to read. No real story line , and it doesn’t portray the jack reacher that I’ve read so much of.
  • Too short

    By Jeffdad
    Don’t waste my time with this stuff. Don’t you guys make enough money from these books. This should have been free.
  • This is not a book!

    By dympnaj
    I should have read the reviews before giving my $2 away. All the reviews are correct! Stay away from this one.

    By slickeilli72
    Okay but definitely not worth a full novel, fans of Reacher will enjoy but not much to this short story.
  • Says it’s 320 pages but it’s really 60

    By Kcjones123
    This was a rip off at $1.99 when it says it’s going to be 330 pages but it’s only 64.
  • Not up to standard

    By ptPati
    I have read them all but this one is by far worse than them. Could have just skipped all but the lsat few chapters!

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