Bad Luck and Trouble (Ja.has been added to your Cart. Lee Child takes a tremendous leap forward from the first novel as this iteration enjoys a far smoother plot progression and Reacher's thoughts/dialogue feel far less scattered; much more appropriate for the ex-military lifer the character is intended to portray. The author still struggles in eliminating irrelevant/drawn out detail, feeling compelled to play out entire dialogues where ideas are already implied and physical descriptions that seem more an attempt at "flexing" knowledge rather than adding plot value.

Bad Luck and Trouble is the eleventh book in the Jack Reacher series written by Lee Child. It was published in 2007, and written in the third person. The title is derived from the song lyrics by singer Albert King "Born Under a Bad Sign"

Bad Luck and Trouble unfolds with the simple, immaculate logic that makes Lee Child’s Jack Reacher series utterly addictive. When Lee Child toured Britain early this spring for the release of his latest monster hit, Bad Luck and Trouble, certain fans were awarded reproductions of the folding toothbrush featured in the novel. It would take a hard-core fan to appreciate the humor in this. But there are many of those fans, for good reason. Mr. Child’s daunting Jack Reacher, the Paul Bunyan of the thriller world, is a drifter who’s known to travel so lightly that his toothbrush, passport and meager funds are his only baggage.

I typically read while eating breakfast and lunch, and occasionally in the evening. I invariably get to the part of a Jack Reacher story where I do not want to stop reading at the end of my lunch. Do I play hooky and keep reading or...

Lee Child knows how to write a compelling story that keeps you engaged. While I have enjoyed all of the Reacher books I have read to date, I am reading them in order because unlike Jack I do plan, this is one of the best.

Longer than what I'm used to, and slower pace; some areas are page-turners, others not so much. I like the way the bad guys get it in the end; kinda like the bad guys at the end of a Walker Texas Ranger episode... they do all this wrong/bad stuff for the first 3/4 of the episode and then Chuck Norris catches up to them and beats the snot and earwax out of them. If you could just read the last 1/4 of each Reacher book, it would satisfy just the same; if you're into snot and earwax beatdowns that is; which I am.

Reacher gets called to LA to investigate the mysterious disappearance of 4 of his former Army special MP unit members. Including a Reacher, the 4 remaining members of that unit work together to figure out what happened, who did it and how they will suffer as a result. In the end, the bad guys, who are selling out our country to enrich themselves, get a taste of their own medicine and are thrown out of a helicopter to their deaths by Jack Reacher to avenge the murders of his friends. Lesson...don’t mess with Jack Reacher!

I have read numerous “Jack Reacher” novels since I first saw the movie with Tom Cruise. As Jack Reacher fans know, Tom Cruise is a good actor but does not match the way Jack is described in Lee Child’s novels. Nevertheless, I have become a fan of the series and just finished reading “Bad Luck and Trouble.” I really enjoyed this book more than some of the other Jack Reacher stories. I guess the reason this novel appealed to me is because it involves Jack Reacher and his former Army team of investigators.

The beginning chapter sets the stage for the entire book, when a Calvin Franz, a former member of Jack Reacher’s Army criminal investigators, is found in the desert after he had been dropped out of a helicopter. When Jack notices more than $1000, 00 had been deposited in his diminishing back account by some unknown person; the story begins to move along at a quick pace. Jack Reacher and some of his old Army criminal investigation team work together to solve a mystery of why one of their own people had been murdered. A good read.

I never give away too much when reviewing novels because it spoils it for those who want to read the book. If you like Jack Reacher novels you should check out “Bad Luck & Trouble.”

Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: The Samurai Soul: An old warrior’s poetic tribute).

What's to say about a Jack Reacher book? They are pretty much all the same, a quick read but absorbing. Jack works his way through various obstacles, whups up on the bad guys, and thumbs a ride away, usually leaving a wistful woman. Reacher is a sort of modernized Lone Ranger. He lives nowhere, appears from nowhere, tends to business and then is gone. I would rate this one near the top, though, because the situation is more imaginative than usual. I can't wait to read the next one!

I expected to burn out on this series when I was reading them one after the other. I slowed down after reading "One Shot," savoring each one rather than tearing through them. I don't like every storyline equally, but Jack Reacher brings it all home for me. I feel satisfied after each book, with all my questions answered.

This series is a guilty pleasure for me, as it's not my usual fare. I tend to gravitate toward fantasy and science fiction, and now that I think about it, Jack Reacher reminds me of my passion for David Weber's iconic character Honor Harrington. Not as law-abiding (now that he's out of the military), but as strong a passion for justice, and I feel just as passionate about both of them overcoming the odds to prevail.

Both characters are implacable enemies and staunch allies, humble and understanding of human frailty, straightforward and focused, but neither of them can abide corruption, or greed that leaves human casualties, and both are uniquely suited to make a difference. Both have superior size and strength on their side, both are clever and perceptive, and both are excellent leaders that inspire loyalty and bring out the best in those around them that have it to give.

I'd highly recommend this series to any Honor Harrington fan, and to anyone who likes thrilling novels of justice American style. (Don't let the fact that an Englishman writes the series put you off!) :)
