Excerpt from Never Go Back

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, read the rules at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!

Christmas is only two days away! Don’t forget books for your favorite reader (or yourself!) I just released By-Pass, Breaking the Pattern #3, and if you can get books 1-3 of the Breaking the Pattern series all in one ebook and save $$! Don’t forget to sign up for my mailing list (to the right) to be informed of new releases and deals.

I am currently reading a couple of thrillers, including Never Go Back by Lee Child, a Jack Reacher novel. I’m not sure if I’ve ever read any Jack Reacher novels before, but I knew they were popular! And so far, I have not been disappointed.

Reacher’s mantra was: Get your retaliation in first. Especially when outnumbered two-to-one against guys with youth and energy on their side.

Lee Child, Never Go Back

nevergoback

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.

Comments

  1. Good teaser. I like Jack Reacher books for a little light reading in between heavier reads. They are somewhat predictable but fun nevertheless.

  2. I like thrillers sounds good, Merry Christmas!

  3. I’ll be curious to hear how much violence is in this one. I read the first Jack Reacher novel, Killing Floor and absolutely loved it. The second one, Die Trying, had too much violence in the second half for me. It went on and on for almost the entire half. The first half of the book was great and I really like the character too.

    My TT this week is from Dead to the World (Sookie Stackhouse #4). http://wp.me/pZnGI-gD

  4. A wise mantra indeed! This novel has a similar feel to the Equalizer; I like novels like these 😀

  5. I believe my husband is also reading Jack Reacher for the holidays! 🙂 He really enjoys them.

  6. Good teaser. I have never read any of this author’s books, no idea why. My teaser this week is a rom-suspense: The Collector
