Synopses & Reviews

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.

 

Praise for #1 bestselling author Lee Child and his Jack Reacher series

 

“Child is a superb craftsman of suspense.”Entertainment Weekly

 

“The truth about Reacher gets better and better.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times

From the Hardcover edition.

Review:

"Back in Child's 14th book about Jack Reacher (61 Hours), the amazingly self-sufficient, peripatetic ex-MP began thumbing his way from South Dakota to Virginia to meet Maj. Susan Turner, the CO of his old unit. It's taken him three more adventures, but he's finally made it and — no surprise — finds a mess of trouble instead of the major. Not only has she gone missing, he is immediately dragged back into the Army, facing a court martial for a crime he supposedly committed 16 years earlier. Dick Hill's voice has a properly hardboiled timbre that fits perfectly with Child's fast-flowing prose. It carries the insouciant, mildly sardonic attitude of a tough guy so aware of his capabilities that nothing intimidates or surprises him. Also of note are Hill's well-tuned voices of villainy, from the sarcastic, overconfident bullies who try using physical force on Reacher to the cold, demanding master schemers who call themselves Romeo and Juliet. By piling troubles on his noble hero and handing him a particularly knotty puzzle to solve, Child has delivered a superior series entry and Hill's rendition adds another level of enjoyment to the mayhem and mystery.
