Don’t miss the exciting preview of Lee Child’s highly anticipated Jack Reacher novel, Never Go Back! July 1977. Jack Reacher is almost seventeen, and he stops in New York City on the way to visit his brother at West Point. The summer heat is suffocating, the city is bankrupt, and the mad gunman known as Son of Sam is still on the loose.
