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?

I have read all the Reacher books in the past on paper back version, however when I re-read this one on Kindle I'd have to say that it is my favourite of the series. The dialogue between Reacher and Turner was like listening to two kindred spirits and the story line kept me completely absorbed throughout. The teenage girl was also a great character.. Well done

This is book 18 in the Jack Reacher series and though it’s not one of Lee Child’s best – a bit slow in places – it’s still a great read. The story kept me gripped most of the time and it was interesting to see how it differs from the (Tom Cruise) movie version (completely different, as it happens). With a little less ass-kicking than usual, the plot centres on unearthing the reasons behind the deaths of two soldiers in Afghanistan, as well as finding out if Reacher has a daughter.
Great story, if not one of his best.
Whatever Child does with language, he could make an Algebra equation utterly fascinating. His skill at whipping up tension, or even whipping up interest, is incredible. Once a reader begins a Lee Child book, there is no putting it down until it is finished. Never Go Back is no different. A brilliant story, brilliantly written. Buy it. You'll become a fan for life.
This is the eighteenth book in the series, and is the destination he has been heading to over the last three books; ( Worth Dying For , The Affair and A Wanted Man respectively) - it all plays out in motels & U.S. military bases and is definitely one of the more institution-based JR novels. There is the usual fare of Reacher's raw-physicality, black coffee, Pentagon-statistics and attractive female lawyers. However it does feel much more like a return to form for Lee Child after a couple of damp squibs in a row despite a rather uninvolved ending to the story.
As an aside, it seems as if Lee Child has developed a random predilection for describing lightbulbs in this instalment. All in all, insanely difficult to put down - a real page-turner - and if you are a Reacher fan already you know what to expect!!
Jack Reacher finds himself in peril, this time it could be his history coming back to haunt him. However using his wits and experience he manages to outsmart and outmanouver the bad guys using violence and will.
This is easy to read, and definately entertaining, i love hammering through these books and cannot wait to read the next one.
