Publisher Comments:

Jack Reacher has come a long way, but there are some who believe that his past has caught up with him. . . . Never Go Back is #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child’s new novel of action-charged suspense starring “one of the best thriller characters at work today” (Newsweek).

In the dead of winter, former military cop Jack Reacher arrives at the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP, in the northeast corner of Washington, D.C. The sturdy stone building was the closest thing to a home he ever had.

Reacher is there to meet — in person — the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner. Maybe ask her out to dinner. But the CO sitting behind the desk is not a woman but a man who looks as if his weapon of choice is a number two pencil.

More shocking is the news Reacher is hit with: a person of interest to the 110th has recently died as a direct result of a beating he suffered sixteen years ago. A beating that Reacher is accused of carrying out. What’s more, the lieutenant colonel tells Reacher: “You’re back in the army, major. And your ass is mine.”

Thrown for one loop too many, Reacher soon learns that Turner is being held at Fort Dyer for reasons unknown. Now Reacher must stay one step ahead of the army, FBI agents, Metro police, and four thugs, while setting out to free Turner and clear his name — especially when a second allegation gets way too personal.

When threatened, a person either runs or he fights. Reacher fights.

Combining an intricate puzzle of a plot and an exciting chase for truth and justice, Lee Child puts Reacher through his paces — and makes him question who he is, what he’s done, and the very future of his untethered life on the open road.

Review:

"Since talking to Maj. Susan Turner on the telephone from South Dakota in 2010's 61 Hours (bestseller Childs's 14th Jack Reacher novel), the former military cop has been heading to the Virginia headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP, in hopes of meeting her. In this 18th outing, Reacher finally arrives in Virginia, where his plan to meet Turner is initially thwarted by thugs who want to keep them apart. An arrest for a crime Reacher doesn't remember committing 16 years earlier and the dangled bait that he might be a father provoke him to run, kicking off a cross-country odyssey. As usual, head-busting physicality and analytical problem solving play key roles in Reacher's fight to prove his innocence and expose his enemies. Manhunts on both coasts, a link to corruption in Afghanistan in the wake of the U.S. military drawdown, and the possibility for romance between Reacher and Turner make this entry one of the best in the series.

Jack Reacher fans will be glad to see NEVER GO BACK, the next book in Lee Child's series, and they will probably love it. I didn't.


This story is corny, even cartoonish. Jack Reacher is an all-knowing superman with supersenses and an ability to predict the future. Almost everything that happens is either impossible or unlikely.


By comparison, Child's ONE SHOT is less corny and even enjoyable. Perhaps that is because Child could write anything he wanted about the fictional places and circumstances in ONE SHOT. Whereas, in NEVER GO BACK, Reacher goes back to the U.S. army, where his actions are questionable; no one could get away with what he gets away with in NEVER GO BACK.
