‘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

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?


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.
