Summary
#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
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* The premise of Child's celebrated Jack Reacher series may be the best in the business: off-the-grid, ex-military guy have toothbrush will travel wanders about, stumbling into messes and cleaning them up. But how do you keep it going without those random messes beginning to seem contrived? By flashing back to Reacher when he was on the grid and in the army. This time it's 1997, and our boy, still in the MPs, is sent to night school along with two other students, one FBI, one CIA, and charged with following not the money but the whisper of the money, as when chatter picks up a Saudi courier saying, The American wants a hundred million dollars. What American? What's the money for? It's off to Germany to find out. In chapters that alternate between Reacher's point of view and that of the elusive American himself, we come to understand the frightening scope of an audacious scheme that stretches back to the Cold War. There's not as much headbanging here as usual, but there is an extra serving of Holmesian ratiocination, as Jack shows his deductive side, as does a German police detective who can exercise the old gray matter with the best of them. There's also something out of the ordinary for Child: an in-depth portrait of the bad guy, who is very bad, indeed, but in a pathetic, almost sympathetic way, as when we see him at the end, his master plan in tatters (no spoiler there this is a Reacher novel), staring blankly with open-mouthed incredulity at the unlikely ways the world can crush a person. We share that incredulity, but with Child's equally unlikely ability to keep his formula fresh, not only with well-timed backstory, but also with a touch of lyricism where we least expect it. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: What's longer: a presidential campaign or a Jack Reacher publicity campaign? The would-be prexies win but not by much, as this novel's five-month national consumer-advertising effort proves.--Ott, Bill Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Set in 1996, bestseller Child's splendid 21st Jack Reacher novel (after 2015's Make Me) delves into his hero's U.S. Army past. Right after Reacher is commended for a mission in the Balkans, he's immediately sent "back to school." It turns out that school means a vital and secret mission: a sleeper cell in Hamburg, Germany, has learned of an American traitor with something to sell to Islamic terrorists for $100 million. Alfred Ratcliffe, the U.S. president's National Security Adviser, tells Reacher and his fellow students-two seasoned agents from the CIA and the FBI-"we have enemies everywhere" and gives Reacher's team its orders: "Your job is to find that American." It's no spoiler to say that Reacher handles the heavy lifting on-site in Hamburg, though he's ably assisted by two former military police colleagues, Frances Neagley and Manuel Orozco. The premise of the pre-9/11 plot is both compelling and disconcerting, and Child applies his trademark eye for detail to make the whole endeavor surprisingly and thrillingly credible.
