Shortlisted for the Crime Thriller of the Year Award at the Galaxy British Book Awards 2008.

Jack Reacher is contacted by a sergeant from his old “special investigators” unit after four members of the unit have been killed. The surviving members need to be rounded up to avenge the deaths and live up to their motto “you don’t mess with the special investigators”. In a slight change for Jack we see him investigating as part of a team rather than in his usual lone status which allows the character to develop in different ways and give us new insight into who Jack Reacher is. Violent and intense, fans will not be disappointed.

Bad Luck and Trouble Synopsis

The events of 9/11 changed Jack Reacher’s drifter life in a practical way. In addition to his folding toothbrush, he now needs to carry photo ID to get around. Yet he is still as close to untraceable as a human being in America can get.

 

So when a member of his old Army unit manages to get a message to him, he knows it has to be deadly serious. The Special Investigators always watched each other’s backs. Now Reacher must put the old unit back together. Someone has killed one of them, and he can’t let that go.

Bad Luck and Trouble Press Reviews

'Forget the A-team. If you’re in a fix, and you want help, you need Jack Reacher . . . the twists come thick and fast, the false trails are cleverly laid and the surprise developments are genuinely unexpected . . . Child, as always, delivers.'
Yorkshire Evening Post


'Perhaps there are action-lit writers more recognizable than Child, but the bet is that none of them will turn in a tighter-plotted, richer-peopled, faster-paced page-turner this year.'
Kirkus - starred review


'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.'
Johnny Vaughan Sunday Times
