The Christmas Scorpion Reviews
Jack Reacher was looking for a warm place to spend Christmas, and finds himself in the middle of a blizzard in California. Of course he finds himself in the middle of trouble once again. Jack is the one who takes things into his own hand, and catches the bad guys. I thought the story ended up to abruptly. It was a very short book, and it took about 30 minutes to read.
The Christmas Scorpion was an enjoyable short story wherein Reacher finds himself snowed in at the unlikeliest of places.
It’s Christmas Eve and Jack Reacher is on his annual trek south for warmer weather when he’s unexpectedly waylaid in the California desert by a snowstorm. Reacher finds himself stuck in a roadside bar with the bartender, an unhappy elderly couple, and two members of Britain’s Royal Military Police.

Love these Reacher.short stories especially the ones set.In his past but this one disappointed. Reacher is stranded in a snowstorm with some people who have a problem, naturally Reacher resolves.himself.to help.them. No surprises there.and at.48 pages there's not much room for.frills. So my problem the book is about 100 pages long we also get a preview of the new book Past Tense now I paid £1.49 for this and happy to spend it, if I had a story even a little bit longer.

Just as I thought this was getting interesting it finished which was disappointing. I did not realise it contained 3 chapters of past tense. Now I never read a preview of chapters unless I own the book already and even then I just move to the actual book so what I thought would be a shortish read turned out to barely cover my cup of tea. This story could have become really good. Instead it didn’t, it ended. Shame.
I'm sad to report that i didn't gain a freaking thing by reading this short story , it was just Meh .
I f hate time wasting .
Classic Reacher short story
I love these little short stories. This one is another quick fire one, not a whole lot can be said about it! But it’s Reacher and I love him so of course I enjoyed it!
I have to admit that although I really enjoy Lee Child's Jack Reacher novels I do find his short stories a bit hit and miss. This is an average entry. The main problem is that although Reacher is in the story there is sadly very little for him to do.
