After an epic and interrupted journey all the way from the snows of South Dakota, Jack Reacher has finally made it to Virginia. His destination: a sturdy stone building a short bus ride from Washington D.C., the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. It was the closest thing to a home he ever had. Why? He wants to meet the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner. He liked her voice on the phone. But the officer sitting behind Reacher’s old desk isn't a woman. Why is Susan Turner not there?
What Reacher doesn’t expect is what comes next. He himself is in big trouble, accused of a sixteen-year-old homicide. And he certainly doesn't expect to hear these words: ‘You’re back in the army, Major. And your ass is mine.’Will he be sorry he went back? Or – will someone else?

"Amazing gripping and entertaining as always."
I have just finished this 18th book in the series. I love every book aa they are so descriptive it's almost like watching a film.
This book has a great story line and was not predictable. I really do enjoy every minute of this series and now downloading book 19.
I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did.
Absolutely loved it! Jeff has a PERFECT Reacher voice! I hope he has done more of them
A slow uninspiring book with a comical performance by the narrator. Very disappointed by it
"Reacher quality maintained"
Better than expected for a later in series book. Great performance by Jeff Harding - Reacher books read by other actors sound quite wrong now. Kept me entertained for the whole read.
I love all the series, the narrator is great too. This one dragged on slightly but still very good
"Not Reacher's best adventure"
The worst for me was the narrator, it sounded like he could not wait until it was finished. He sounded really bored, especially when listing events or items blahblahblah, yadda yadda yadda, and that made it hard to listen to the story, the voice distracted me. He was marginally better doing the female voices. This was the first and last book I will buy read by Jeff Harding.
"Jack Reacher gets better and better"
The bad guys just do not understand loyalty and honour.
Doing the right thing is never easy
Just what you expect from Jack
Listen to the books in order is a great help in this series not essential but recommended
"A Gripping read"
Not the best reacher story but still a gripping read. Very much enjoyed during my bus journeys. Hope you do!
"Never go back."
A brilliant novel. Lee Child brings Jack Reacher back. Righting wrong yet again. Would have loved to see papa jack
"It's a bit Janet and John..."
I really enjoy the series-thrillers, having collected all of the Rebus novels, the Dirk Pitt novels and Numa files and many other US and UK-based franchises. This was my first Jack Reacher, and I was keen to start a new collection.
The subject and the setting really appeal, but the story was very basic and very implausible. I appreciate authors need to invent some extreme scenarios but the characters, story and actions were very implausible, which really starts to erode credibility and become a little bit puerile and disengaging.What compounded my disappointment was the delivery. Jeff Harding's monotonous drawl is slow dull and boring, and he has a range of exactly 2 voices, one high and one low pitch. Really, it was a struggle to get through this book, the antithesis of almost every other audio book I've every bought.
In a buy one get one free frenzy, I've ordered another Jack Reacher novel in case I have been unfairly critical. My expectations are low.
Never go back is an appropriate tag line for the Jack Reacher franchise, based upon my experience of this book and performance.
It's horses for courses. Whilst I found this slow, monotonous, implausible and un-engaging, others may well enjoy this book and this franchise. I'm a firm believer in live and let live, so please go ahead and enjoy.
