Bad Luck and Trouble (Jack Reacher #11)

by Lee Child

You do not mess with Jack Reacher.

He is as close to untraceable as a person can get. A loner comfortable in his anonymity and solitude. So when a member of his old Army unit finds a way to contact him, he knows this has to be serious.

You do not mess with the Special Investigators. In the past the elite team always watched each other’s backs. Now one of them has shown up dead in the California desert and six more are missing.

Reacher’s old buddies are in big trouble, and he can’t let that go.

“The invicible Reacher is as irresistible as ever”  Sunday Telegraph

“Almost overnight, British author Lee Child created one of the world’s most enduring and popular fiction characters in Jack Reacher . . . Child is a great storyteller . . . the reader never feels conned . . . Another sure-fire hit”  Daily Mirror

“Jack Reacher has the manliness of John Wayne, the coping skills of Jack Bauer, the fieldcraft of John Rambo and the coolness of Dirty Harry”  Sunday Times

“[Reacher] has long since gained mythical status…storytelling of the highest order: lean, laconic, laced with tension”  Evening Standard

“One of the truly memorable tough-guy heroes in recent fiction” Jeffrey Deaver

“It’s his hero, hyper-tough ex-US army special investigator Jack Reacher, who keeps me coming back for more…never a dull moment”  Guardian
