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.
