never go back
never go back

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 either 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.
Note: I finished this book over a week ago and I've been so distracted with other things I haven't gotten around to reviewing, which bugs me because I like to review books when they're still fresh in my mind so please excuse the shortness of my review!
Reacher finally makes it to Susan Turner.....kind of. Things have gone bat shit crazy and all of a sudden Reacher finds himself back in the Army.
This was an unusual installment in the Reacher series. We find Reacher contemplating his lifestyle in a way he never has before, including wondering if he missed out on things he never thought he cared about. But Reacher is still there. He's still the guy who needs to right the wrongs and take care of the people who can't take care of themselves. Of course, Turner isn't necessarily one of those people. I think Turner could take care of anybody, but things go easier with Reacher by your side.
So now that four book odyssey is over with. Let's see where the road takes Reacher next.
