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.

"Child is a superb craftsman of suspense." (Entertainment Weekly)
"The truth about Reacher gets better and better." (Janet Maslin, The New York Times)
I've seen Reacher across the nation. He never settles down; he's made a few changes. I just keep listening. He doesn't own anything except a toothbrush and that house many books back he didn't say he disposed of. He's a bad driver, and he's taller than Tom Cruise!
This audio book was weak. The story was contrived and riddled with repeated dialogue as if that lended a sense of style to the cliched patter. Dick Hill's narration was chock full of annoying stops and starts which sounded like he was mocking the writing instead of embellishing it. Yuck.
Probably not. I remember it and it was good to hear.
Most Reacher books.
Allows me to listen as a drive and do other things.
I liked his interaction with the woman. A female presence helps humanize Reacher.
The story was so convoluted and unbelievable. Characters were hard to follow and not believable.
had a better story
very disappointed. I have been a Jack Reacher fan but this will end that.
I have had difficulty finding great mysteries lately and may let my Audible subscription go.
I would definitely buy another Lee Child book. I will never download a book narrated by Dick Hill ever again
Almost any narrator would be preferable to Dick Hill. His enunciation and characterizations were annoying and one dimensional.
No follow up is necessary. This book provided appropriate closure to the story arc.
Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.
This was the best Reacher yet. We loved it! Great story, it kept your mind going following his calculations and review of events. Need more like this one!
