3.0 von 5 Sternen No real surprises except for the old MP team reunion
PLOT: 10 years ago Jack Reacher was a Major in the Military Police - one who solved every case and never backed down.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Still grips me like the first one, 15. Mai 2007
Reacher's old army buddies are disappearing, yet the remaining are tied with a band of loyalty and of rage about the deaths of their deceased comrades. Nothing stops them on their trail towards the murderers....

This one is as good as the Reacher novels come, Lee Child once again did an excellent task of gripping the reader with his plot to the very end. Are there inconsistencies? Yes, but not more than in any other Reacher story. As the story unfolds one wishes to be able to read faster, to get to the gist of things and at the same time to read slower, so that the book never ends. If you like Reacher than you will definitely like this book!

If there can be a fictional character that epitomizes living in the moment, that character has to be Jack Reacher. Since leaving the MPs, he's drifted along. But when something gets his attention, he's a spring-loaded weapon.

In Bad Luck and Trouble, Lee Child, shows us other dimensions of Reacher . . . when the immediate solutions aren't obvious, while working with part of a former MP team, and connecting with a woman he's been interested in for a long time. That doesn't turn Reacher into Robert Parker's Jesse Stone, but it does round out his character in ways that are promising for future books.

In the previous books, Reacher's drifter status was symbolized by traveling with only a travel toothbrush and the clothes he is wearing. Reacher finds that he has to modernize himself a bit by also carrying his passport and an ATM card. It's harder to get to his money otherwise.

As the book opens, Reacher finds an unexpected amount in his bank account. He quickly checks to see if it's an error . . . since he's down to his last few bucks. The bank confirms that there's no error and he persuades the bank manager to help him find out who made the deposits. Bingo, it's a former MP colleague, Frances Neagley, and the amount transmits extra meaning to Reacher. He calls Frances and is told by her assistant to find her in LA. Reacher uses his ATM card to buy a ticket and heads to where he would go if he were staying in LA.

What's the fuss? One of the old team, Calvin Franz, has been murdered. Frances has been trying to reach the remaining members of the team with no success. Immediately, Reacher and Frances wonder if someone is targeting the team.

From there, the story develops along the lines of trying to solve the murder of Franz, locating the rest of the old team, and dealing with the mystery they uncover that appears to have caused Franz's death.

Although the story certainly has action sequences, there's much more investigating than action in the book. A lot of the book's appeal depends on Reacher finding himself in luxurious surroundings (which makes him acutely uncomfortable) and in seeing him take on a formal leadership role instead of acting as a lone ranger. It's also fun to see how his former colleagues respond to him.

To me, the book had two major weaknesses. First, there are a number of apparent errors in technical matters (here are a few examples: The corporate headquarters of a defense contractor has little security; Lake Arrowhead is not on the fast route between Victorville and LA; and the final two ATM deposits he receives seem too small). Those errors destroy your sense of being in the story because you start puzzling over the inconsistencies rather than thinking about the story. Second, Reacher is compulsively translating every number into several different measurements and dimensions. It gets old pretty quickly. If Reacher were really that fascinated with numbers, wouldn't he spend some time every day with activities that intrigue number lovers? It undermines the character portrait to have him ignore that element.

The ultimate mystery itself is a minor weakness in the book. Reacher repeatedly fails to follow up on clues that would have resolved the mystery much sooner. Why would a crack investigator be so sloppy, especially when he had lots of people to help him?

PLOT: 10 years ago Jack Reacher was a Major in the Military Police - one who solved every case and never backed down. Now he is loner, a wanderer with no phone, no permanent address, no family to call, no credit card, no car, no suitcase, no nothing - somebody who leaves no trail. But strangely enough someone is able to leave a coded message for Reacher. A message that will bring him together with his old army team for a new case: a dead body, mutilated, found in the middle of nowhere, dropped out of a plane. Surely no ordinary case but the perpetrators made their first mistake: they killed one of Jack Reacher's old teammates. This time is personal - for all of them...

A strange case, almost no clues. That means Reacher faces the tasks, investigates, kicks ass and gets the girl. The usual storyline in a Lee Child book. Quite a good one that worked before many times. The biggest difference here is the reunion of the old MP team - a good deviation from Child's conventional storyline. The characters of the team members are likeable and Neagley is already known from "Without Fail".
Instead of being the Lone Ranger Reacher becomes a team player. This time he is not the one that solves all the riddles - quite the contrary.

The book is quite entertaining, features some detective work, has some dead ends, twist and turns and Reacher is cool as always. For his fans this book should represent another solid work from Lee Child and a reasonable good read with the Reacher character looming above all. Nevertheless the book is quite simple, won't keep you glued to your seat and some of the surprises and answers to riddles are pretty easy to figure out on your own long before Reacher's team does.
I like Reacher so I am biased and even if this book was not that great I can hardly wait for the next one.

Readers not acquainted with Lee Child's main character should note that there is strong violence in the book - as basically is with all his books. "Bad Luck and Trouble" is unlikely to be the book to get new readers addicted. They better start with "The Enemy" and read "Killing Floor" afterwards. If these two books do not do the trick then you should go to other authors anyway.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Bad Luck and Trouble, 18. Juli 2008
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Ich fand das elfte Abenteuer von Jack Reacher ziemlich durchwachsen. Es fing gut an und endete dann wieder mit der Lee Childtypischen Action und Brutalität. Weniger vom Letztgenannten wäre mehr gewesen. Lee Child hat es meiner Meinung nach versäumt, den Gegenspielern von Reacher Tiefgang und Profil zu geben. Sie waren wieder mal die typischen holzschnittartigen und übertrieben böse dargestellten Unholde wie man sie bei Mr. Child schon zu oft angetroffen hat.Vielleicht sollte sich Lee Child mal an Elmore Leonard
orientieren. Dieser lässt in seinen Geschichten nicht so einseitg dargestellte Gangster agieren. Obwohl seine Bücher weniger Seiten haben, habe ich den Eindruck, dass die Figuren mehr Tiefgang und Profil haben.
Aber im Großen und Ganzen fand ich "Bad Luck and Trouble" recht gut. Vielleicht gelingt es dem Autor in den weiteren Büchern der Reihe überzeugendere Antagonisten von Reacher zu kreieren.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ultimate dream life for men, 24. Juni 2010
During the past 10 years Jack Reacher (JR) has been living a nomadic existence in the US. His ID- and ATM-cards and the clothes he wears are his only earthly possessions. No mobile phone, but with a head full of telephone numbers of former colleagues. The Pentagon used to transfer him from one US army base to another of its 800+ facilities worldwide as an MP. As LC explains, US soldiers are trained to kill. To contain them wherever they are, MPs (Military Policemen) have to be trained even better. JR was born on a US army base in West Berlin and until his dismissal (with a golden handshake), he was ignorant of the conventions of living beyond the armed forces. After being made redundant from the US forces after the fall of the Berlin Wall, JR decides against a civilian career.

Instead, he embarks on an Odyssey of the US, doing odd jobs and solving other people's problems. His personal network from the past, his fitness, powers of intuition and thought, fighting power and sheer courage, prove quite helpful in keeping his bank account in the black.

In this adventure, a former colleague contacts JR in a unique manner, because she does not know where he is. JR understands from her message that the elite unit of 8 top crime investigators they were both once part of, is under threat, with one man down (the chief) and two missing... To see if JR is still competent, she does not send clear instructions where he can find her. But JR has the ability to think and move about very quickly and soon they face each other across a Formica-topped table in an eatery to plan the counterattack against an unknown, powerful and rancorous enemy...

LC has published 12 bestsellers with JR as the hero. This book is part 11. They can be read separately. They are very authentic, credible and believable thanks to the atmosphere created by the description of the procedures and anecdotes from JR's previous life. Most important of all, the books are wonderful escape literature for stressed males. JR represents a dream life full of adventure and valour, without unwanted daily routines and attachments, monthly or annual financial sacrifices. LC has built a fan base far beyond the police or the military. Over time JR has proven to be a politically-correct problem solver who does not shun blunt violence, if and when appropriate. His followers include female readers too.
