It's never too late to live happily ever after!
Bad Luck and Trouble opens with a horrific action sequence. Let's just say that Child has a way of dropping a bomb in the opening pages.
Reacher is contacted by Frances Nagley, a woman from his old unit. She's tracked him down in a unique way. Fans of arithmetic puzzles will liked this. Nagley tells him of what's happening to the men in their old unit. She and Reacher try to reunite with the rest of his old team, but they're almost too late.
Reacher's unit had the motto: "You don't mess with the unit." The people who have targeted Reacher and his team learn this truth a little too late.
Nonstop action. Larger than life characters whose camaraderie seems genuine. Despicable bad guys. Intricate plot. Edge of the seat suspense. If those characteristics appeal to you, grab Bad Luck and Trouble asap!
I enjoyed the story up to the time when they make silly statements that are false altogether. A helicopter will autorotate safely to the ground (provided the pilot is competent and there are no other issues other than the engine quitting-regardless of why it quit) easier from a higher altitude than a lower one. Glide to drop ratio is about 1:3 (1 forward and 3 down), you have to keep rotor RPM up and for your best chance higher is better (gives you more time to make radio calls and select a suitable area for your landing site). Otherwise great story.
Yes...its a great story with wonderful characters.
The entire book.
Jack Reacher of course.
I did not.
nope....it was great.

I've read or listened to most of the Reacher series and anxiously await new additions. While the book does provide good background on Reacher's military past and the Special Investigative unit, I found the story itself is boring and slow paced. Not much action or intrigue to hold my interest. Not to give anything away, but the culprits seem like a bumbling group of Keystone Cops - you're left wondering how they could be such a formidable opponent.
Hope the next one is better...
I love Jack Reacher but this was a bit confusing for me for some reason. Liked the crew being back together that interaction was great but might have to have another listen.
Dick Hill is the best.
Less focus on numbers. Less useless trivia that went no where.
Not Lee Child
Not sure. Just don't think he depicted the characters very well.
yes, I love Reacher, and I alway's listen to my book's twice
Reacher, He's Tough
When Reacher dropped out the three from the helicopter, then took out the pilot after landing.
I was moved by the book from the begining,
I love all of Reacher, can't wait till the new one is available
its just a little too much meaningless graphic violence even for Reacher. Still it proves the slogan "dont mess ....,
reacher of course
I was an avid reader of books before my work took most of my time so now I listen to Audible books when I'm exercising or walking my dog. I like mystery and thriller novels, particularly good serial killer novels. I'm a writer and a psychotherapist.
This book just seemed like a cookie cutter Jack Reacher novel. Yes, he has sex with the girl, surprise, yes, he's a tough guy, what a shock, but the plot falls far short of the Jack Reacher novel just before it in the Reacher series. It felt like Lee Child wanted a vacation from Jack Reacher so he just threw in all of the elements and gave it to his publisher. There's nothing compelling about the novel. I finished it because I paid for it and I kept hoping something exciting would happen. It didn't.
Create some suspense and intrigue that isn't so predicatable.
I love Dick Hill's performances, this one included.
How about just throw the book away and move on to the next one.
Anybody who likes a men running around killing each other with no story or mystery. No thrills. No plot. I kept waiting for a surprise to happen.
No excitement at all. No mystery. Boring.
Mediocre. Nothing to get me excited.
Who knows. None of them were exciting. Hard time making a connection with any of them.
Don t bother reading his one.
