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)
This was not the best of the Reacher series. The best thing was having Dick Hill read. The story in itself went absolutly nowhere. I couldn't focus on the characters or the storyline.
Yes. But just like my other favorite authors they tend to crank books out too fast and lose context.
I love Dick Hill. If if wasn't for him I probably would never have finished it.
No. I will "never go back" and listen to it again.
A plot that didn't attempt to equate Jack Reacher's logistical skills with Albert Einstein.This Reacher is to clever by half.
Not another Lee Child book.
His performance was fine; but the plot was so lacking that Hill's reading became repetitious and uninteresting.
Disappointment because the plot of the story was so lacking.
I know some of the fans of this series may find this one quite a bit more tame than others have been in the past. I found it more mature, more potentially believable (though still a stretch in bits), and overall very enjoyable. There was till plenty of Jack being Jack -- but it wasn't as over the top as some of the others. I approve.
Not even Jack Reacher could save this book.
Dick Hill is Dick Hill no matter how bad the material.
None that I remember. If I were not a Reacher fan already I would not listen to any more of the series.
Awful book that lacked a story. It sounded like there was a new author every other chapter. No real build on story beacuse there was no real continuation just stuff thrown in out of no where. There are no spoilers because...well just beacause.
I would likely purchase another Reacher novel but I would not purchase an Audible book if Dick Hill were the narrator. Although Hill would be very enjoyable reading a different author, I feel he was not a fit for a Reacher novel.
Classic Reacher with his dry, plodding ways and 50/50 outlook on almost all situations.
Hill's general rhythm. He had a choppy, hesitant cadence that just did not hit the mark with me.
No. I would certainly watch it via iTunes, Netflix or Hulu though. I just would not do the expensive theater thing.
Reacher finally meets "The Voice" and in the end it's a throw away. A potential daughter that looks and thinks like him and it ends with a fizzle. The main antagonists go away without impact. This storyline had so much potential, but it seemed that Lee Child , himself, just lost interest and ended it.
He didn't need to increase his volume to a yell when Reacher and the woman were riding in the convertible. It was a pain to have to adjust my volume control as a result of this.
I would cut my use of a credit if I could cut anything.
This is one of those books where I was walking the dog, listening to the book, and found myself talking back to the narrator. It was soooooo bad I would get perturbed with the bullcrap characters and storyline that I found myself saying, "Move on for crying out loud." I got just past halfway in the book and decided listening to it was harmful to my attitude. So I didn't finish the book.
I'm through with this series.
The genre is not the problem here.
Monotonous, monotone, and single voice.
Not any redeeming qualities.
The worst problem with this book is that the plot is ridiculous. Anyone that has been on the military knows this.
The writing. After listening to a lot of other books and writers and then coming back to listen to this book, and I listened to All the Reacher books, I couldn't help but notice how poorly written Never Go Back was. I feel bad for Dick Hill having to read this thing. 50/50 I'll never listen to another.
I'm still bumbed that I picture Tom Cruise when I hear the name Reacher. He would have to change his whole character to fit in with this writing.
Every scene where he starts rambling about 50/50
I don't think Lee Child put much effort into this book. That goes for his last book also. I was in a hurry to get through this book so I could start another.
