The Christmas Scorpion: A Jack Reacher Story

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.

The Christmas Scorpion1 star

A waste of my money and time. Not a story...barely a story line...full of holes & unbelievable observations. 15


Rubbish1 star

Love Jack Reacher....hate this story. 15


Don’t buy1 star

Love all the Reacher Books, but this one is not worth the 2 bucks. Should have been longer! 15


Not worth1 star

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. 15

The Christmas Scorpion1 star

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 15


Underwhelming2 star

No JR action and very little deductive reasoning. This “book” was barely an introduction. 25

Lee, you can do much better. 15


Disappointing1 star

I’ve read all the Jack Reacher books. Trite plot with a lead character who doesn’t resemble the Reacher I know. 15
