Amazon.de

Ex-military cop Jack Reacher is the perfect antihero--tough as nails, but with a brain and a conscience to match. He's able to see what most miss and is willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done. Each book in Lee Child's smart, addictive series (The New York Times has referred to it as "pure escapist gold") follows the wandering warrior on a new adventure, making it easy to start with any book, including his latest gem, Bad Luck and Trouble. However, be forewarned...once you meet Jack Reacher, you'll be hooked, so be prepared to stock up on the series. --Daphne Durham

A Note from Lee Child

Two years ago I was on a book tour, promoting that year's new Jack Reacher novel, One Shot. One particular night, the event was held in a small town outside of Chicago. The date was June 21st. As I was giving my talk and answering questions and signing books, that date was nagging away at the back of my mind. I knew it had some significance. I started panicking--had I forgotten my anniversary? No, that's in August. My wife's birthday? No, that's in January. My own birthday? No, that's in October.

Then suddenly I remembered--it was ten years to the day since I had been fired from my previous job. That was why and how I had become a writer. That night in Illinois was a ten-year anniversary of a different sort, somewhat bittersweet.

And ten is a nice round number. So I started thinking about my old colleagues. My workmates, my buddies. We had been through a lot together. I started to wonder where they all were now. What were they doing? Were they doing well, or struggling? Were they happy? What did they look like now? Pretty soon I was into full-on nostalgia mode. Ten-year anniversaries can do that to a person. I think we all share those kind of feelings, about high school, or college, or old jobs we've quit, or old towns we've moved away from.

So I decided to make this year's Jack Reacher book about a reunion. I decided to throw him back among a bunch of old colleagues that he hadn't seen for ten years, people that he loved fiercely and respected deeply. Regular Reacher readers will know that he's a pretty self-confident guy, but I wanted him to wobble just a little this time, to compare his choices with theirs, to measure himself against them.

The renewed get-together isn't Reacher's own choice, though. And it's not a standard-issue reunion, either. Something very bad has happened, and one of his old team-members from the army contacts him, by an ingenious method (it's hard to track Reacher down). She gives him the bad news, and asks him to do something about it. He says, "Of course I'll do something about it."

"No," his friend says. "I mean, I want you to put the old unit back together."

It's an irresistible invitation. Wouldn't we all like to do that, sometimes? --Lee Child


Secrets of the Series: A Q&A with Lee Child

Q: Why do you think readers keep coming back to your novels?
A: Two words: Jack Reacher. Reacher is a drifter and a loner with a strong sense of justice. He shows up, he acts, he moves on. He's the type of hero who has a long literary history. Robin Hood, the Lone Ranger, Aragorn from The Lord of the Rings, Jack Reacher--they're all part of the same heroic family. Reacher just ratchets it up a notch. Maybe more than a notch. Why is he so appealing? Most often people say to me it's his sense of justice; he will do the right thing. Even though there is no reward in it for him, even though there is often a high cost to be paid by him, he will always try to do the right thing and people find that reassuring in today’s world when not too many people are doing the right thing.

Q: Jack Reacher gets compared to James Bond, Jack Bauer and Jason Bourne, each of whom now has a "face." In a movie, which actor do you think could fill Reacher's shoes?
A: That's the toughest question. The thing about Reacher is he's huge; he’s 6'5" tall and about 250 pounds. There aren’t any actors that size--actors tend to be small. So we aren't going to find a physical facsimile for Reacher because there aren't any. We have to find someone who is capable of looking big on the screen. Many people have said to me a young Clint Eastwood would have been perfect--we need someone like that who has the vibe of a big intimidating man. Hopefully there will be somebody available like that. It's also a question of finding somebody ready to sign up for more than one movie. They want to make a franchise, minimum of three, and that makes it a little bit harder.

Q: What research is involved in writing one of your stories?
A: My research is all kind of backwards. I don't go to the public library for three months and take notes in advance; instead my best research is by remembering and adapting. I read, travel, and talk to people just for the fun of it, filing away these interesting little snippets to the back of my mind and eventually they float to the surface and get used. The problem is, I approach writing the book with the same excitement and impatience that I hope the reader is going to feel about reading it. But even so, I need a certain measure of technical intrigue in the story. There is specific research I have to do as I go along, anything that's a small detail; a car, a gun, a type of bullet. I will check that out at the time. But, that's what I call the detail--the broad stuff is the stuff I already know.

Pressestimmen

"The invicible Reacher is as irresistible as ever. " (Sunday Telegraph)

"One of the truly memorable tough-guy heroes in recent fiction." (Jeffrey Deaver)

"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)

"[Reacher] has long since gained mythical status...storytelling of the highest order: lean, laconic, laced with tension." (Evening Standard)

"Reacher is one of those characters who is admired by his male readers and lusted after by his female ones in equal measure . . . Child's tough-as-nails protagonist has become one of the most appealing of contemporary heroes." (Daily Express)

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.

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.
