#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE Never go back—but Jack Reacher does, and the past finally catches up with him...? Never Go Back is a 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. Praise for Never Go Back "A breathless cross-country spree...?ome of the best, wiliest writing [Lee] Child has ever done...?hild's bodacious action hero, Jack Reacher, has already tramped through 17 novels and three e-book singles. But his latest, Never Go Back, may be the best desert island reading in the series. It's exceptionally well plotted. And full of wild surprises. And wise about Reacher's peculiar nature. And positively Bunyanesque in its admiring contributions to Reacher lore."—Janet Maslin, The New York Times "Welcome to the relentless world of Jack Reacher and his impressive tendency to be in the wrong place at the right time...? Child has created an iconic character that other thriller writers try to emulate but don't come close to matching. He has a talent for taking material that in the hands of other authors would be stale and making it seem fresh...? Tight and compelling...?i>Never Go Back is one of Child's best novels."—Associated Press

Professional reviews

"This latest Jack Reacher thriller is a winner from the get-go. Although actor Tom Cruise played Reacher in a recent movie, narrator Dick Hill is the REAL Jack Reacher to many listeners. This book is likely one of Child's best, though in many ways itÕs different from the rest because this time Reacher is forcibly recommissioned in the army and charged with several crimes. After he breaks Major Susan Turner out of the brig, the pair set off to make things right. Hill seems to know there's something special about this book because he continues to pump up the action, and heÕs exuberant in his characterizations. You can appreciate Hill's artistry as he changes Reacher's voice while Reacher is cruising in a top-down Corvette. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
