  • Bad Luck and Trouble: A Jack Reacher Novel

    Jack Reacher reunites with the survivors of his old Army investigative team, scrambling to raise the living, bury the dead, and connect the dots in a mystery that is growing darker by the day. 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.

    The author doesn't paint the word pictures that I have come to appreciate from books I have read in the past but with a little imagination, possibly from past experience, my (your) mind will fill in the blanks. The story line is a good one and an entertaining one. In spite of my misgivings, I found myself enjoying the traffic clogged trips to work each day listening to the story as it played out.

    This collection of the best crime and mystery short fiction of 1999, gathered from around the globe and including more award-winners and stories than any other comparable volume, fills the void for those with a hunger for the best international mystery and suspense stories.

    Overall

    Really a mixed review. Technically, one story disappeared midstream and another began spontaneously. Another problem was a totally valley-girl type narrator that drove me to advance past her work. I did find may of the stories entertaining but generally was disappointed with the overall quality.

    They laughed at Roberto Valdez and then ignored him. But when a dark-skinned man was holed up in a shack with a gun, they sent the part-time town constable to deal with the problem, and made sure he had no choice but to gun the fugitive down. Trouble was, Valdez killed an innocent man. And when he asked for justice, and some money for the dead man's woman, they beat Valdez and tied him to a cross. They were still laughing when Valdez came back. And then they began to die.

    Fun recording! A little like watching the story on a vintage TV show but having your imagination fill in the blanks which is way better. I look forward to more stories to blank out the hassles of rush hour traffic.
