In the morning, they gave Reacher a medal. And in the afternoon, they sent him back to school. It's just a voice plucked from the air- 'The American wants a hundred million dollars'. For what? Who from? It's 1996, and the Soviets are long gone. But now there's a new enemy. In an apartment in Hamburg, a group of smartly-dressed young Saudis are planning something big. Jack Reacher is fresh off a secret mission and a big win. The Army pats him on the back and gives him a medal. And then they send him back to school. It's a school with only three students- Reacher, an FBI agent, and a CIA analyst. Their assignment? To find that American. And what he's selling. And to whom. There is serious shit going on, signs of a world gone mad. Night School takes Reacher back to his army days, but this time he's not in uniform. With trusted sergeant Frances Neagley at his side, he must carry the fate of the world on his shoulders, in a wired, fiendishly clever new adventure that will make the cold sweat trickle down your spine.

Reviews

"Ever more gripping...Night School is the closest that Reacher has come to being a secret agent, making this expertly paced thriller and addictive combination of spy yarn, detective story and beat-'em-up fightfest." Sunday Times "I know I say this every year...But. Best. Reacher. Ever." -- Karin Slaughter "Reacher... wins all fights, charms all women and outsmarts all rivals, friend or foe.What makes Night School the best of the Reacher novels I've read is that Child has concocted a brilliant plot...battling to save America, or maybe the entire civilised world, from a terrorist plot that is original, engrossing and all too believable...one of the best thrillers you'll read this year." Washington Post "Dripping with irony and oozing dread...utterly gripping...Acute observation reveals "every detail of the glowing scene". Many so-called literary novels lack such skill." -- Mark Sanderson Evening Standard "This latest instalment has all the classic ingredients: a great setting, a good villain, and a mystery that draws you in efficiently, escalates unpredictably, and has a satisfying resolution." -- John Lanchester New Yorker

Not one of his best. I have read all of his books and he does occasionally get a low score (not everyone is perfect!)
Has the usual weird thoughts and actions which make Jack interesting but A LOT LESS in this book. He seems a little out of character.
Kept thinking it was coming to the end .... but there was still lots more chapters to go ?? Had some good twists but stretched thinly.
The end was a bit flat.

Enjoyed this book like all the others. It was a bit out of sequence because His brother Joe is still alive and he has interactions with another future team member. Love it when he and Neagley work together.

Another great Jack Reacher book. Lee Child just keeps on with the goods.
Carol Anderson on
 
Yes I agree with the above reviewer; very little of Jacks personality came through, it felt formulaic, flat and lacking in realistic characyers or plot tension. . The first third or so was taken up with setting the scene but was jumbled and not easy to follow. Sex scenes were kind of ridiculous and two used exactly the same words so that it gave the impression of Jack being almost autistic. Tried to be clever but using vocab thats a little complex didnt add to the story. Maybe Lee Child needs a break. He sold his soul to Tom Cruise and I think he and Jack Reacher now need to be gracefully retired. Its been a great run but all good things come to an end.
