Samenvatting

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BYKIRKUS REVIEWS

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.

Don’t miss Lee Child’s short story “High Heat” in the back of the book.

Praise for Never Go Back

“A breathless cross-country spree . . . some of the best, wiliest writing [Lee] Child has ever done . . . Child’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. It’s exceptionally well plotted. And full of wild surprises. And wise about Reacher’s peculiar nature. And positively Bunyanesque in its admiring contributions to Reacher lore.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times

“Welcome 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 don’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 Child’s best novels.”—Associated Press

“An adrenaline-charged, action-packed thriller . . . impossible to put down.”—Lansing State Journal

“The dialogue has never been sharper. . . . The pages turn themselves.”—San Antonio Express-News

“For the pure pleasure of uncomplicated, nonstop action, no one touches Reacher.”—Kirkus Reviews(starred review)

“Brilliant . . . Child never, ever slips. He keeps the action cranking better than anyone, but, best of all, he keeps us guessing about Reacher.”—Booklist(starred review)

“One of the best in the series.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Recensie(s)

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

    Geschreven bij Never Go Back

    The title is all about Jack Reacher (JR) ‘s fateful return to the 110th MP base he commanded long ago in the state of Virginia, near Washington DC. During a recent adventure in South Dakota, he phoned its present commander. He liked her voice and hitchhiked his way east. Once he arrives near the object of his curiosity, things change rapidly: she is quickly arrested for corruption, JR is arrested for two historical offences.
    What follows is plot-wise totally silly, as usual and full of the usual stuff, like using the laws of averages and probability, breaking limbs and outsmarting the enemy. This reader grows a little tired of aging Reacher’s absolute prowess in mind and body matters after 18 books. But this one is a lot better than its two predecessors, which occurred only weeks before this one. Why? For once, he is operating in busy urban areas again, not in isolated locations. Also, author Lee Child (LC) paints a scary picture of the surveillance capacity of the Department of Homeland Security via internet and mobile phones, esp. when bad people within have free access and control.
    LC plants two warnings in this tale: check what you once sent and now receive back when leaving a war zone and watch the military logistics companies closely. My copy contains an encore in the form of a long story about JR as a 16 year old strutting his stuff. Brr.

  • Weer een goede van Lee Child
    • Fantasierijk
    • Goed plot
    • Spannend

    Dit boek is zoals altijd weer een meesterwerk. Wat stopt die Lee Child veel tijd in zijn achtergrondinformatie. Het verhaal is meeslepend, ik moest alleen af en toe terugkijken om te zien wie nou wie is. Maar dat ligt ongetwijfeld aan mij. Echt een aanrader. Mijn schoonzoon heeft hem net gekocht.
