A Brilliant Story, Brilliantly Written
5 September 2017
Child does it again, in spades. For the previous three or four books Reacher is heading for Virginia to meet a major whose voice he liked on the phone. No photo, no description, just a voice. He finally gets to his old army base to discover that Major Susan Turner is being held in the brig pending charges of treason. Reacher's antennae can spot skullduggery a mile off. Something is off about the new officer in charge and Reacher immediately determines to rescue the major. He finally meets her and was it ever worth it!! But he finds himself embroiled in a tense and dangerous struggle against the army and has to go on the run, accompanied by Major Susan.
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.
