Publisher's Summary

Never go back - but Jack Reacher does, and the past finally catches up with him.... Never Go Back is number-one New York Times best-selling author Lee Child’s new novel of action-charged suspense starring "one of the best thriller characters at work today" (Newsweek).

Former military cop Jack Reacher makes it all the way from snowbound South Dakota to his destination in northeastern Virginia, near Washington, D.C.: the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. The old stone building is the closest thing to a home he ever had.

Reacher is there to meet - in person - the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner, so far just a warm, intriguing voice on the phone.

But it isn’t Turner behind the CO’s desk. And Reacher is hit with two pieces of shocking news, one with serious criminal consequences, and one too personal to even think about.

When threatened, you can run or fight.

Reacher fights, aiming to find Turner and clear his name, barely a step ahead of the army, and the FBI, and the D.C. Metro police, and four unidentified thugs.

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.

    "Ending didn't work for me."

    I liked the book overall but, the ending leaves something to be desired. There should've been more to it.

    "Good old boy Jack Reacher at it again..."

    We have heard it before, we will hear it again. It is a delight to spend time around the campfire listening to Jack Reacher's war stories.

    "Good to finally close a long-runnig story line"

    It is kinda cheesy that from South Dakota to Nebraska to Iowa to Virginia Jack keeps going from one problem to another right away. All while trying to get to VA to meet a woman he met only by phone way back in South Dakota (enough with the sex already). If I were Jack I WOULD settle down just to stay out of trouble. That said.....it was a good story. It took longer than I like to set up but by the time it ends it felt like it was too soon. It had me wishing there was just a little more.

    "Great story leading to a anti-climatic ending"

    Overall I enjoyed the book a lot. It had some great support characters and a lot of very suspenseful moments. Some highlights were the scene on the plane, Samantha, and the Prison. I enjoyed the book and felt it was another great reacher story until the ending. The end without spoiling it felt anti-climatic. Which is unfortunate because the rest of the book was very solid and a fun read or listen. The narrator was great as usual, giving the characters life and different voices. Overall I still recommend the book but get ready to be disappointed by the ending.

    "Classic Reacher!"

    Dick Hill is THE voice of Reacher! The others are ok, but I always picture it best when it's Dick Hills voice. Great story, excellent twists, as we've come to expect from Lee Child. A great read if you're a fan of Mr Reacher and his endless wandering saga.
