#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The incomparable hero of Jack Reacher: Never Go Back takes readers to school in his most explosive novel yet. After eleven straight global #1 bestsellers, discover the thrillers that The New York Times calls “utterly addictive.”

It’s 1996, and Reacher is still in the army. In the morning they give him a medal, and in the afternoon they send him back to school. That night he’s off the grid. Out of sight, out of mind.

Two other men are in the classroom—an FBI agent and a CIA analyst. Each is a first-rate operator, each is fresh off a big win, and each is wondering what the hell they are doing there.

Then they find out: A Jihadist sleeper cell in Hamburg, Germany, has received an unexpected visitor—a Saudi courier, seeking safe haven while waiting to rendezvous with persons unknown. A CIA asset, undercover inside the cell, has overheard the courier whisper a chilling message: The American wants a hundred million dollars.”

For what? And who from? Reacher and his two new friends are told to find the American. Reacher recruits the best soldier he has ever worked with: Sergeant Frances Neagley. Their mission heats up in more ways than one, while always keeping their eyes on the prize: If they don’t get their man, the world will suffer an epic act of terrorism.

From Langley to Hamburg, Jalalabad to Kiev, Night School moves like a bullet through a treacherous landscape of double crosses, faked identities, and new and terrible enemies, as Reacher maneuvers inside the game and outside the law.

Praise for Night School

“The prose is crisp and clean, and the fighting is realistic. . . . This latest installment has all the classic ingredients: a great setting (Hamburg), a good villain, and a mystery that draws you in efficiently, escalates unpredictably, and has a satisfying resolution.”The New Yorker
“Another timely tour de force . . . The taut thriller is textbook [Lee] Child: fast-paced and topical with a ‘ripped from the headlines’ feel.”—Minneapolis Star-Tribune
“As gripping as ever.”The Florida Times-Union

Praise for #1 bestselling author Lee Child and his Jack Reacher series

“Reacher [is] one of this century’s most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes.”—The Washington Post

Have you ever read a book by a favorite author and wondered who in the world wrote their latest book? This book has the obligatory fight scene and uninvolved sex scenes, but the story is BORING. I only finished the book because it cost so much!

This clearly was not written by Childs or if it was, it's time to retire. No cohesive plot, new characters every chapter . ... I am halfway through and don't care if I finish it. Childs has a distinctive style...long on description and short on dialogue, and this is completely opposite. That said, I did catch a few scenes that sounded like it was written by the author but other than that, Mr Childs needs to re-read his first few books to re-learn how to write like he used to. Or ditch the ghost writer . Very disappointed.

The last two "Reacher" books have been disappointing. Seems like Lee Child is going through the motions to get paid.

I have read and thoroughly enjoyed all of the Jack Reacher books. But Childs latest was a real disappointment. Not because it is set early in his career, but because there is No plot. The story wanders and action is contrived. Sorry Lee, of all your books I think this one was a let down.

Didn't seem true to Reachers character nor Childs writing. Very boring.

Yes .... I have seen some of the other reviews. Jack Reacher is an evolving character. This takes place earlier than a lot of his books. He was not always the same person - heck it makes him a little more real.

I can't read these books anymore since Tom Cruise was the star in a movie

Couldn't wait to get this latest Reacher book but I did not enjoy reading this one at all! So many characters, making it hard to follow! Not exciting like past books

Wow was this a waste of money! I have read every Jack Reacher book and for the most part loved them all - until this one. I'm not going to repeat all the negitive reviews but they were almost all written by fans like myself who are upset. Beleve them! Half way through you get upset by so many characters (who all happen to be in the right place) one,two,and three word sentences. 15 sec. Fights that take 20 pages to discribe.

Lee Child has made two big mistakes in his writing career; writing Night School and casting Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
This was almost as horrible as Child's picking Tom Cruise to play Reacher in his movie. There were more holes in this story and plot then swiss cheese - it was the worst that he's ever penned. A warning for a spoiler alert - Two of the worst were the idea that Reacher spent the night bang'n his boss while he knew the bad guy was a mile away and no one did anything to try and apprehend him, and then these had to be the dumbest and most trusting terrorists in the world to pay $100 million up front for something one guy was peddling. And these just happened to be man portable nukes that just got lost due to an accounting error and this guy just happened to find by joining the Army and having the extreme good fortune to be based in Germany and discovering them in a warehouse - talk about one in a trillion! Yes, I know, the Davy Crocket nukes were real and were of the size and weight as put forward in the book, but this was the biggest reach for reacher ever in terms of being at all plausable, let alone entertaining.
