"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) From the Hardcover edition.
