You do not mess with the special investigators.

That’s a message the bad guys don’t heed to their peril in the newest Jack Reacher novel Bad Luck and Trouble by Lee Child.

Reacher is summoned to Los Angeles by a former member of his special military investigative team only to learn that four former members of the team are missing and several others can’t be located. Eventually, four members of the team assemble in L.A. where they began to piece together the reasons beyond their colleagues’ disappearance.

It’s business as usual for Reacher, which is to say that readers are in store for the usual suspenseful, rollicking read Lee Child’s been serving up since he started the series – this is the 11th – in 1997 with The Killing Floor. Child’s Reacher novels are the gold standard for the mystery/thriller genre and Bad Luck and Trouble is no exception in being exceptional.
