Product description

Review

"The bone-crunching, joint-popping action is as technically precise and primevally satisfying as ever. The extra-lean prose is as ruthlessly linear as the plot…[However,]Lee Child proves he can write about emotions other than lust and anger and reveals his hero to be more than just a man of steel. Eighteen novels in, his franchise shows no sign of running out of steam." (Mark Sanderson Evening Standard)

"Lee Child’s bodacious action hero, Jack Reacher, has already tramped through 17 novels and three ebook 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.
/Mr. Child’s Jack Reacher series is as brainy as it is brawny...Starting with an opening sequence that throws three huge surprises at Reacher, there are more neat tricks and clever set pieces in this one volume than Mr. Child has ever strung together before...Read it. You’ll see why." (Janet Maslin New York Times)

"Is Reacher getting soft? Not a chance. The righteous violence when it comes is still pretty astonishing. This is one of Reacher's best outings. A must for all fans." (Daily Express)

"Jack Reacher is a man's man, a loner, a renegade crusader for justic...The harder-than-nails hero is on the top of his form...You'd better read it." (Sun)

"Fast-paced, taut and punchy, fans will love this." (Sunday Mirror)

Book Description

By addictive bestseller Lee Child, the brand new, action-packed, high-tension Jack Reacher thriller, which sees Reacher, at the end of his long journey, honing in on his target in Virginia at last...

By J. Morris VINE VOICE on 29 Aug. 2013
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
After a run of three books of Jack heading towards to his old military unit headquarters in Virginia and getting waylaid, Jack finally arrives to meet the voice on the telephone he was so intrigued by in 61 Hours. She is Major Susan Turner but when he finally arrives she is not behind her desk. She is locked up and Jack is brought back on active service to stand Military trial for crimes he allegedly committed during his prior service. It seems not even Jack can escape the past, but when he is charged with something he clearly didn't do, it is evident that someone is fitting him up, will Jack manage to unravel the conspiracy?

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 is old. He's 18 books old. He's in his 50's. He's changing and the world around him is changing faster than the tight narrative constructs that control him. The cracks have been there for at least 5 books. People (reviewers) need to get over that. It's part of the willing suspension of disbelief when reading long series of character driven books. Move on of the books don't entertain. Stop buying if they offer you no value.

So lets be real, the later books are not as good as the early ones - how good are they compared to the competition? Very good.

Child writes with skill, pace and panache. Reacher is an incredibly well constructed character, with real depth and a broad character traits that we know well. Child still creates tension, rollicking time lines and good quality action. I liked that this book dealt less with the physical Reacher and more with the emotional and intelligent one. The sparring with Turner is clever and witty. The subtext is about how anachronistic Reacher and his generation are. He's out of touch - but some things remain the same. Human motivation is money, love and fear.

Yes the villains in this book are weak in comparison to some - but not all - they represent the big brother element of modern governmental life. Child never really preaches politics at his readers, he just nudges them along and this book certainly opens the casual readers eyes to some bigger US political issues. If they want to open that is.

Child has left us with an interesting Reacher future... he has a reason to return to a fixed place if needed. He can still wander and be the man we know and love but there are alternate avenues. Reacher is old. He can't keep doing what he does into his late 50s. It would be a bit silly.

Lee Child has been building his Jack Reacher series up to this story for several years, it following on from events in two of the last three novels, and it certainly doesn't disappoint. Reacher has been making his way back to his former army posting, to meet the woman who currently holds his old position in the military police, but instead finds someone else, and a surprising number of complications.

The story really does make for addictive reading - I was hooked right from the start and read through the book in just a couple of days. Child's style seems to have matured slightly and the short, clipped sentences of the older books have, in places, stretched out to slightly more filling prose, but without losing any of the action, excitement and suspense that the series typically brings.

The plot is filled with puzzles and twists and the usual Reacher-style violence and problem solving, and for once he's presented with a strong emotional storyline to accompany this. As usual, Reacher is joined by a new supporting cast of characters, but some of these feel stronger and better defined than before, and this really helps build up the belief in the plot and wonder at where Child is taking the reader.

The best book in the series? Probably, yes.

This is the second Reacher book to be filmed. I haven’t seen the film and I’m in no great hurry to. I like the books. I do wonder though, if Lee Child is spreading his time too thinly. This reads as though he didn’t have enough time to plot and develop the story properly.
I missed the usual breakneck action, I did not turn the pages at high speed and I didn’t find the mystery all that mysterious.

Read all the books to this point and the last few have been a repetition of Jack travelling between dinner, hotel and warehouse. As soon as I started getting into this story I said this has got to be the next movie. Googled and found I was right and not surprised. The addition of other characters working with Jack adds a new dimension and works well. Good story, interesting character's and good background setting with Jack back in the army.
