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)
If this were my first Reacher book, it would have been my last. I have generally enjoyed this series until now. the book demonstrates a total lack of understanding of the military justice system. It is replete with cliches and senseless phrases repeated over and over.
While in the past I have thought that Dick Hill was an OK narrator, his female voice in this instance are grating.
Read some of the earlier Reacher novels and forget this one.
classic reacher. .... Love the story. ... especially the part in Los Angeles. My only complaint is that Dick Hill is sounding really old and tired. ... his voice no longer does it for me. warbles, lacks vitality no matter how much he punctuates this or that syllable....This was challenging to listen to. ...
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!
