    After an epic and interrupted journey all the way from the snows of South Dakota, Jack Reacher has finally made it to Virginia. His destination: a sturdy stone building a short bus ride from Washington D.C., the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. It was the closest thing to a home he ever had. Why? He wants to meet the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner. He liked her voice on the phone. But the officer sitting behind Reacher’s old desk isn't a woman. Why is Susan Turner not there? What Reacher doesn’t expect is what comes next.

    Peter Grobler says: "Great book"
    "puzzled by this one"

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No - Not many of my friends read Reacher books so I would recommend one of the earlier titles. e.g. The Enemy or Without Fail


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Never Go Back?

    the girl he meets in LA


    What didn’t you like about Jeff Harding’s performance?

    Dick Hill wasn't my favorite reader but he did manage richer emotional shading & color than Jeff Harding. Didn't find the performance of Never go Back very engaging.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    unlikely


    Any additional comments?

    I couldn't work out if it was the change of narrator or the book itself but the style of this book seemed different than the previous Reacher books. It seemed a little synthetic. Found myself wondering if a ghost writer had been employed who was copying the style of the "Reacher" brand without capturing some of the spirit of the early stories. It wasn't a bad story, at times I was truly gripped but it seemed different in character.
