Never Go Back ~~ Lee Child



Description
Never Go Back by Lee Child
Never go back -- but Jack Reacher does, and the past finally catches up with him. . . . Never Go Back is Lee Child’s new 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.

This book was something else. I just couldn't put the darn thing down. It's usually always like that with a Jack Reacher book, but there was something about this book that particularly grabbed me. I'm a huge fan of Reacher and love every one of the books in this series. Lee Chid's minimalist style of writing is just perfect for a tense, action-packed thriller. And he has crafted a truly unique and wonderful main character. This book gives us a glimpse of Reacher's previous life as an MP sergeant. He goes back to his home base which he refers to as The 110. And he goes back because of a woman. Major Turner is the woman who currently holds Reacher's old command post. Reacher had had some interaction with her in the last book, so he went back to meet her in person. And when he does, he steps into a labyrinth of lies and deceit that threaten to put him and Susan Turner in lonely cells in Leavenworth. Reacher and Susan both decide to stand up and fight for their freedom. It sends them both across the country in search of particular 14 year old girl who, for some reason, seems to be a key pawn in the setup that has ensared them both. And, of course, nothing is ever easy in a Jack Reacher book, so throughout the whole journey while they try to discover what's behind the frame-up, they're stalked and chased by a particularly unsavoury band of semi-military goons. Lots of tense action and of course lots of Jack Reacher's laconic personality, make this a particularly compelling thriller.
