A review: Bad Luck and Trouble by Lee Child

I’m always amazed by how expertly Child sticks to his Reacher formula whilst twisting it a little and finding new, fascinating settings.
Bad Luck and Trouble has fresh puzzles for the reader to try solving whilst being tugged along by the galloping pace of the book.
I enjoyed the introduction of his old colleagues to the plot. It was good to get a little of the loner’s back story.
I gave this one star less than I give most Reacher books because the plot slowed in places when I didn’t want it to, thus upsetting the usual flow of enjoyment. If this had been written by anyone but Lee Child, I’d have been tempted to abandon it on my first reading. On the second reading of it, I had the comfort of knowing the action would resume and mysteries would be ingeniously solved.
