#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER â€˘ NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY KIRKUS REVIEWSNever go backâ€”but Jack Reacher does, and the past finally catches up with him. . . . Never Go Back isÂ Lee Childâ€™s new novel of action-charged suspense starring â€śone of the best thriller characters at work todayâ€ť (Newsweek). Â 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. Â Reacher is there to meetâ€”in personâ€”the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner, so far just a warm, intriguing voice on the phone. Â But it isnâ€™t Turner behind the COâ€™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. Â When threatened, you can run or fight. Â 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. Â Combining an intricate puzzle of a plot and an exciting chase for truth and justice, Lee Child puts Reacher through his pacesâ€”and makes him question who he is, what heâ€™s done, and the very future of his untethered life on the open road.Praise for Never Go Back Â â€śA breathless cross-country spree . . . some of the best, wiliest writing [Lee] Child has ever done . . . Childâ€™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. Itâ€™s exceptionally well plotted. And full of wild surprises. And wise about Reacherâ€™s peculiar nature. And positively Bunyanesque in its admiring contributions to Reacher lore.â€ťâ€”Janet Maslin, The New York Times Â â€śWelcome 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 donâ€™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 Childâ€™s best novels.â€ťâ€”Associated Press Â â€śAn adrenaline-charged, action-packed thriller . . . impossible to put down.â€ťâ€”Lansing State Journal Â â€śThe dialogue has never been sharper. . . . The pages turn themselves.â€ťâ€”San Antonio Express-Newsâ€śFor the pure pleasure of uncomplicated, nonstop action, no one touches Reacher.â€ťâ€”Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Â â€śBrilliant . . . Child never, ever slips. He keeps the action cranking better than anyone, but, best of all, he keeps us guessing about Reacher.â€ťâ€”Booklist (starred review) Â â€śOne of the best in the series.â€ťâ€”Publishers Weekly (starred review)From the Hardcover edition.
