Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Great story about Reachers Origins."

    Good story esp. a window into Reachers time as an MP. But compared to other novels, it fell flat. The voice narration is always awesome! Really captures the mood and pace.

    "Hoped for a better finish"

    I like the mystery, the suspense and the fight scenes. But I was hoping for a bigger explosive finish in the end. Instead it ended with a quiet finish and had Reacher just walking away again.

    Story
    "This book is the next Tom Cruise movie"

    I was amazed when Hollywood cast a 5'6" actor to play a 6'5" character...I guess they never thought anyone would notice.
    Quite a story of misdirection, our hero Jack Reacher,and his female C.O. Turner are being deceptively being accuse of multiple crimes of treason, assault, and adultery, so the real bad guys can cover their gun running, and drug business.
    In this story Reacher once again has a brief affair,but this time it is with his superior officer. Once again it is just sex no long lingering love affair. Some humor is injected into those moments.
    Throughout the story Reacher, and Turner are playing Watson and Holmes, and the good guys win once again.
    I for one will be interested to see what Hollywood will sift out of the book.and put up on the screen.

    "Reacher is king!"

    He's the baddest man on paper! Lee Child is the man! I almost read the books from front to back without stopping! Very hard to put down!

    "Ending didn't work for me."

    I liked the book overall but, the ending leaves something to be desired. There should've been more to it.

    "Good old boy Jack Reacher at it again..."

    We have heard it before, we will hear it again. It is a delight to spend time around the campfire listening to Jack Reacher's war stories.

    Story
    "Good to finally close a long-runnig story line"

    It is kinda cheesy that from South Dakota to Nebraska to Iowa to Virginia Jack keeps going from one problem to another right away. All while trying to get to VA to meet a woman he met only by phone way back in South Dakota (enough with the sex already). If I were Jack I WOULD settle down just to stay out of trouble. That said.....it was a good story. It took longer than I like to set up but by the time it ends it felt like it was too soon. It had me wishing there was just a little more.
