‘Never Go Back’ by Lee Child

My Review (4 stars out of 5)

Finally reaching his destination in Virginia, Jack Reacher heads for his old army unit – the 110th Military Police. Intending to take the unit’s commanding officer Major Susan Turner out for dinner, Reacher finds the major has been detained in a military prison. Faced with accusations against his own army record, our hero must track down Major Turner, get her out of jail and find out what the hell is going on.

This is book 18 in the Jack Reacher series and though it’s not one of Lee Child’s best – a bit slow in places – it’s still a great read. The story kept me gripped most of the time and it was interesting to see how it differs from the (Tom Cruise) movie version (completely different, as it happens). With a little less ass-kicking than usual, the plot centres on unearthing the reasons behind the deaths of two soldiers in Afghanistan, as well as finding out if Reacher has a daughter.

Great story, if not one of his best.
