Book Overview: Never Go Back

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.

"A breathless cross-country spree . . . some of the best, wiliest writing [Lee] Child has ever done . . . Child'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 . . . Never Go Back is one of Child's best novels." --Associated Press

"An adrenaline-charged, action-packed thriller . . . impossible to put down." --Lansing State Journal

"The dialogue has never been sharper. . . . The pages turn themselves." --San Antonio Express-News

"For the pure pleasure of uncomplicated, nonstop action, no one touches Reacher." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Brilliant . . . Child never, ever slips. He keeps the action cranking better than anyone, but, best of all, he keeps us guessing about Reacher." --Booklist (starred review)

"One of the best in the series." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Lee Child, born as James Dover Grant on October 29, 1954, is a renowned British author best known for his gripping thriller series featuring the character Jack Reacher. Child's grasp on the thriller genre, engaging narrative style, and meticulously constructed suspense have placed him among the pantheon of esteemed international authors. Since debuting his writing career in 1997, Child has penned more than twenty novels, many of which have landed on the New York Times bestseller list and been translated into several languages. Despite being born in Coventry, England, Child's stories predominantly unfold in American settings. Prior to his writing career, he worked at Granada Television for sixteen years. In 1995, following corporate restructuring, he was laid off from his job. This turn of events prompted him to explore writing as a career, a decision that bore fruit as the first novel “Killing Floor”, released in 1997, quickly gained critical acclaim and won the Anthony Award for Best First Novel. Across his multifaceted career, Child's writing prowess has been decorated with several prestigious awards. Yet he stays grounded and continues to contribute outstanding works to the thriller genre. His authorship skills have not only expanded the landscape of thriller literature but have also been instrumental in shaping our understanding and appreciation of suspenseful storytelling.
