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 am a high school teacher and hockey coach living in Fairbanks, Alaska.
As always, Jack Reacher is the man. I have read/listened to every Jack Reacher book and I love the series. This is another solid book. While it's probably not the best Jack Reacher book (maybe a little less action than some others in the series), it is certainly well worth the listen.
Dick Hill is a solid narrator and always does a great job.
This and every Reacher book are solid. If I were you, I'd start with Book 1 and enjoy the whole series. Then you can be like all the other fans of this series - counting the days until the next one comes out.
Listen to a lot of audio books driving across the wide open spaces of Nevada during monthly 450 mile trips to and from Las Vegas.
I enjoyed this Reacher novel from start to finish! Reacher and Susan Turner made a good team and the action was non stop.
The Reader. Extremely poor. His emphasis on proper diction came at the expense of smoothness and fluidity in the story. It was very distracting. Mr, Hill needs to move on.
Enough said about Mr. Hill.
Audible Books have allowed me to be a "reader". I now enjoy novels and stories I never knew about.
Yes. By keeping the "bad guys" as the unknown
Dick Hill IS Jack Reacher. And is great at anything he narrates.
The moment you realize WHY? That pleasure was the real reason.
Lee Child keep them coming.
formulaic writing All novels beginning to sound the same Needs new style and end to current tired formula.
yes Too much of the same old, same old
capable, believeable, easy on the ear
story is issue, not a character
I've listened to the entire series. Love Jack Reacher novels - the bad guys always pay their dues. Dick Hill is the perfect Reacher voice. Interest twist to the story. I like that Reacher doesn't always get it right. Lee Child unpacks Reacher's logic. You can see the story unfold. Great writer.
Good Books Don't Promote Violence
I really enjoyed this latest Reacher adventure. (Once I get used to the idea that he travels with only a folded toothbrush, but no paste, I get wrapped up in the mystery and well written characters.) The storyline has lots of thrills and surprises without too much graphic violence. Of course, the responsible adult in me wonders why Reacher doesn't carry condoms since he frequently falls in bed with one or two new women in each book.
edited this book
he tried to bring some life to this
Beating up two poor rednecks with his hand behind his back ?
the well is dry don't waste your time or money .
.........A shame but I think the series has Reached the end
overall it has been a good ride!
I agree Reacher is back, but for me he never left as I did not read the last novel due to the reviews.
The action is heavy, and Reacher acts like Reacher. Dick Hill just does a good job. I am a big Dick Hill fan.
are you kidding....... he makes the book and all the others wonderful
I saw lee child at third place books in seattle. he is one smart man. it was great fun to hear speak. If you listen to one of his books and like it you will want to listen them all as I have....happy listening.....
