"Reacher gets better and better. . . . [This is the] craftiest and most highly evolved of Lee Child's electrifying Reacher books."--Janet Maslin, The New York Times
A bus crashes in a savage snowstorm and lands Jack Reacher in the middle of a deadly confrontation. In nearby Bolton, South Dakota, one brave woman is standing up for justice in a small town threatened by sinister forces. If she's going to live long enough to testify, she'll need help. Because a killer is coming to Bolton, a coldly proficient assassin who never misses.
Reacher's original plan was to keep on moving. But the next 61 hours will change everything. The secrets are deadlier and his enemies are stronger than he could have guessed--but so is the woman he'll risk his life to save.

I feel therefore qualified to make a reasonable assessment of these books. And that assessment is everyone should have 'Jack Reacher' in their lives.
He has helped me through 'lock down', taken me to impossible land, satisfied all outcomes wanted and given me all the mentioned hours of escapism and pleasure.
Mr Child incorporates most of the requirements that I love into his prose and writing. Short chapters, fluent prose, not too many big words that no one else understands. The character he has created in 'jack' is so unbelievable that he is believable in his superhuman way, a kind of genius from Mr child.
'Jack' in his 'Dirty Harry' way always gets the baddies.
If you are thinking about getting into these books and my humble opinion is worth anything, go for it.
I bought "Never Go Back" with "Killing Floor" at half price almost on a whim. I started with "Killing Floor" and am currently on "The Affair" having bought every one of the series and have pre ordered anything not yet in print.
Why? I found that the character was so believable AND readable plus in each of the books I found Lee Child had inserted and described in such absorbing detail, small almost irrelevancies that were as good to read as the main storyline that they became, not just fillers as other authors insert, but real and very readable. I can't praise the series enough - each and every book has really brought back my love of reading - "Thank you", Lee Child - brilliant!!
If you read for fun (rather than for work) I would suggest that you try at least one Lee Child book. Obviously, you won't impress anyone, but you'll be left with a feeling that the good generally conquer the bad.
A bit like The Lone Ranger or Bonanza one hundred years ago ... but definitely worth a read.
