Publisher's Summary

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?


What the Critics Say

"It's said that a Jack Reacher novel is bought every four seconds somewhere in the world… Lee Child's genius has been to create a tough guy hero that men will envy and women will adore" (Daily Express)

The fix was too short

What made the experience of listening to Never Go Back the most enjoyable?

Like Gregory House and Harvey Spector, Jack Reacher is one of those characters you wish were real and that you could be in their lives or live by their rules. Each book brings new lessons and observations on life. The satisfaction of hearing Jeff Harding say chapter one is one of the most pleasureable moments I know. And the moment Jack Reacher heads for the nearest bus station at the end is like mourning a loss. I only came across the Reacher series a year ago and I thought it would take forever to go through the whole set, but the 12 months have flown by. Now like all the other fans I am up to date and I am a Reacher addict waiting for my next fix. This one lasted less than 12 hours.....too short for such a hard addict. I was hooked on Harry Bosch and Harry Hole for a while, but they are class B drugs...sure they are pleasurable and hit the spot, but the cold trukey wears off quickly. I even tried a few tabs of Dave Gurney and Juan Cabrillo and they took my mind off Reacher for a few weeks. But now I got it bad. This new book touched all the buttons and then some. Pace, characters, stroy line, intrigue, action and dialogue were honed to perfection. A masteclass in being inside a fictional characters head and looking through their eyes, with no inhibitions on how to behave to get the job done.Mr Cruise, thank you for trying to portray JR and your recognition of the character, but please leave the rest of his books to our imagination and lets have our own trips of ecstasy

Who was your favorite character and why?

All the female parts...Lee Child understands the female internal voice well. I particularly liked Sam Dayton...I wish Reacher had taken her with him they would make a wonderful couple.

What about Jeff Harding’s performance did you like?

As comfortable as pipe and slippers

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

For sure.

Any additional comments?

To get my next fix I am going back to book one and starting the Jack Reacher series all over again. Hopefully when I finish it in 6 months, the next one will be out.....
