Bad Luck and Trouble sheds a lot of light on Reacher and what drives him. Sometimes he seems almost a two dimensional entity without any clear motivation other than violence, and then you see the almost Taoist clarity with which he sees the world. If there were a grim reaper, Reacher could be his avatar on earth. He takes the admonition "do the right thing" from his mother (Enemy), and does it. The eye for an eye nature of his balancing the books for his brutally murdered comrades is justice at it's simplist. If he were to have a tatoo, it would say "Let God sort it out later", to paraphrase R. Lee Ermey. Great Book!
