In a new short story available exclusively as an ebook, Jack Reacher’s spending the holidays in California. The last thing he expects is a blizzard—or a visit from the world’s deadliest assassin.
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.

Jack Reacher A Christmas Scorpion
Okay but definitely not worth a full novel, fans of Reacher will enjoy but not much to this short story.
Not up to standard
I have read them all but this one is by far worse than them. Could have just skipped all but the lsat few chapters!
Says it’s 320 pages but it’s really 60
This was a rip off at $1.99 when it says it’s going to be 330 pages but it’s only 64.
