Publisher's Summary

A decade postmilitary, Jack Reacher has an ATM card and the clothes on his back - no phone, no ties, and no address. But now a woman from his old unit has done the impossible. From Chicago, Frances Neagley finds Reacher using a signal only the eight members of their elite team of army investigators would know. She tells him a terrifying story about the brutal death of a man they both served with. Soon Reacher is reuniting with the survivors of his old 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.

What the Critics Say

"Winning." (Publishers Weekly) "Highly recommended." (Library Journal)
"The action is intense, the pace unrelenting, and the violence unforgiving. Child remains the reigning master at combining breakneck yet brilliantly constructed plotting with characters who continually surprise us with their depth." (Booklist)

    "Bad Luck and Trouble"

    This was the first Lee Child book I've ever read and really enjoyed. It was exciting, with twists and turns and a lot of action. It kept my attention the entire time. The narrator was pretty good, but, as usual, my complaint is trying to sound like a woman. It just can't be done. Other than that, really good.

    But it's the typical character we want to be like. Can't get enough. Suspense with a touch of passion.
