About this deal

He defends those he loves (albeit temporarily), those he does allow into his world, with a loyalty bar none while never letting go of the notion that he is alone and being perfectly comfortable with that. There are still the logical inconsistencies that plague this series for me but I suppose that I've read so many now that I've beefed up my suspension of disbelief muscles. For me Jack Reacher books are never about the ending, sure they’re important as one book tends to lead into another, for me however they are about the journey within.

His books consistently achieve the number-one slot on bestseller lists around the world and have sold over one hundred million copies. A haiku of nouns and verbs, of chase and run, the reading of tea leaves like ripples that point to the track of sharks. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Another thing with the repetition: he introduced a ‘flip of a coin’ element towards the end of the book that drove me mad! It aimed for the motel office, but its headlight beams swung across Reacher’s immobile form, and it changed direction, and came straight at him.Jack Reacher is NOTHING like Tom Cruise (probably one of the worst casting I've ever seen, let alone the disgusting need of Hollywood to sensationalize everything it produces). There is a certain element of romance in the "bad guys" - making space for a good villain on screen. In part, due to my friends' reviews, and in part because I let my subconscious sift through the rubble that was my initial thinking.

In this one our ex-military policeman hero Reacher breaks the mold by teaming with a twin, the new female chief of his former MP unit. So maybe this should be more of a 3-star review, but I have to acknowledge that author Child kept my attention throughout because I often wanted to see how Reacher would get in and out of predicaments.

Never Go Back was another fantastic instalment in this series and the book where Reacher finally gets to Virginia after whole books worth of delays.

The ending, and the reason for all the trouble Jack found himself in, was crazy, far-fetched and not what I have come to expect from Lee Child.
