MT Review: Never Go Back: A Jack Reacher Novel Hardcover

I've finished "Never Go Back" the book in his Jack Reacher series by Lee Child.

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.

My Review:

Jack Reacher decides to go back to his old stomping grounds to meet Major Susan Turner because he is intrigued by her warm voice.  When he arrives he is met by hostility and a man behind the desk who confines him back to the Army.

I did like the storyline but a few times Reacher does make some dumb mistakes even though he is a smart man and near the end the story was starting to bog down.
