The Christmas Scorpion Reviews
We have every book written by Lee Child. Including this load of rubbish
I cannot believe Lee Child could waste his time, and I could waste my money on such a stupid, nonsensical piece of rubbish. Lee, what on earth have you done. If I wanted rubbish I would buy Stephen King. I buy Lee Child books, both the content and the adventure. I just may ask for my money back on this one..
Fun for what it is.
"“You could call the MP barracks. You might still know someone. You could mention the 110th. I’m sure that makes people want to help.” “Usually it makes people want to shoot me in the face."
This is 22 digital pages with a couple of pages from the next full novel. If you buy it expecting more than that, you will be disappointed. It is fun for what it is.
A lot of build-up with minimal payoff.
Short and quintessential Jack.
Not worthy of the Reacher story line. Someone should have looked at this story before publication...
Thanks was was a lousy short story and was not worthy of the Reacher story line. I am not sure what the author was trying to accomplish.
The Christmas Scorpion. Lee Child
A short but excellent novella. Reacher always heads for warmer weather during Christmas. Barstow California. There's a problem though. A freak snowstorm! He holes up in a small tavern and as usual stumbles into another's persons mess. Extremely entertaining read! Enjoyed!
It’s almost time for the annual Jack Reacher novel, but that does not mean that Lee Child has been resting on his laurels.

Winters for Reacher must have a single element, warm weather. That explains why he’s made his way to Southern California just in time for Christmas. However, Mother Nature has opted for something a little more troubling than coa ...more
Lee Child Takes A Turn As Santa
A Christmas gift for Reacher fans. Our favorite hero, caught in unexpected circumstances, is what we always want him to be - low-key but always thinking. Always one step ahead, even in snow up to his waist.
The coolest part is that these stories make me believe these kind of high stakes things happen all the time, and that a guy like Reacher saves the day.
This is a great, quick read that doesn’t disappoint. Highly recommended.
