Bad Luck and Trouble: A Jack Reacher Novel (Mass Market Paperbound)
Jack Reacher-a former military policeman turned drifter who has a knack for thwarting trouble with his unique and militant sense of justice-returns in Childs' latest thriller, which stays true to its title. Someone is killing off former members of Reacher's Army Investigation Unit. He is forced to reunite with the remaining members to show those responsible why "You do not mess with the special investigators." Though Reacher is not the most sentimental guy, as he reminisces, comparing himself to his compatriots and their various successes and failures, we get unique insights into his life. The action builds in classic Reacher style to a fantastic, edge-of-your-seat helicopter finale. We like Reacher, and think you will too. ~ Andrew & Alison— From Andrew
From a helicopter high above the California desert, a man is sent free-falling into the night . . . and Jack Reacher is plunged into the heart of a conspiracy that is killing old friends.Reacher has no phone, no address, no ties. But a woman from his former military unit has found him using a signal only the eight members of their elite team would know. Then she tells him about the brutal death of one of their own. Soon they learn of the sudden disappearance of two other comrades. But Reacher won't give up--because in a world of bad luck and trouble, when someone targets Jack Reacher and his team, they'd better be ready for what comes right back at them.
