#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


  • Ron Hollier

    My least favorite Reacher story. The story was not interesting, not the same Reacher mystique. I didn't care how it ended and it took too long to go nowhere.

    Great book for a high school to college aged reader/listener. Other than that, mediocre book.

  • Charles Murphy

    Listened to Night School while hospitalized. Jack Reacher made the time pass quickly. The Reacher adventures are always a favorite choice of mine!

  • Stacy Toynbee

    Dicks hill has been the voice of Jack Reacher since book 3. Love him and the Book!

  • corinne weiss

    1980's old theme, old audio, old story

  • William Stover

    I enjoyed this adventure of Reacher, I hope to hear more of his time as a Army Officer and M.P.

  • Marty Toth

    It's hard for me to imagine Reacher through the voice of Dick Hill. I was not impressed with this book as much I before. I was a little disappointed.

  • joshua becker

    Lee Child did it again. I hope to hear many more of Jack Reacher early adventures.

    I may actually read the book. I am starting to sour on audio books as the two series I have listened to (Reacher and Swagger) the narrators just leave me flat. Part of it is while they try to differentiate voices by character, they all really sound the same making it harder to follow, and their "female" voices just make you cringe. Part of it is the readers just don't sound what I think the main characters should sound like. As for the actual content, it was a middle of the road Reacher book. There are some better and some worse. My complaint with this book was the plot seems to lack imagination and was surprisingly predictable (Lee Child usually does a better job with twists and turns). I also thought all the inter-agency cooperation seemed to go way too well. Always a Reacher fan, even if Tom Cruise and the directors have mangled the movies, but there are better Reacher books to read

    Not worth the credit. Wish I could return it. I've love all other Jack Reacher Novels. This is by far the worst. Plot is mediocre at best and Dick Hill just couldn't keep me interested. If Lee Child writes another bad one like this, I'll stop reading this series...:(
