Worth Dying For hits the ground running and then accelerates all the way to a colossal showdown.

There’s deadly trouble in the corn country of Nebraska…and Jack Reacher walks right into it. First he falls foul of the Duncans, a local clan that has terrified an entire county into submission. But it’s the unsolved case of a missing child, already decades old, that Reacher can’t let go.

The Duncans want Reacher gone—and it’s not just past secrets they’re trying to hide. They’re awaiting a secret shipment that’s already late—and they have the kind of customers no one can afford to annoy. For as dangerous as the Duncans are, they’re just the bottom of a criminal food chain stretching halfway around the world.

For Reacher, it would have made much more sense to keep on going, to put some distance between himself and the hard-core trouble that’s bearing down on him.

For Reacher, that was also impossible.

Worth Dying For is the kind of explosive thriller only Lee Child could write and only Jack Reacher could survive—a heart-racing page-turner no suspense fan will want to miss.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Luan | 2/20/2014

    " I'm up to date in the Jack Reacher series and pleasantly surprised to see that growth for the character is ongoing. Yay. Maybe he'll settle down someday while still being able to take on 30 guys at once in a smack down and figure out the unfigurable. Don't get me wrong, I really love this series. Crown Vics and all. "

    " Lee Child is always a quick read, this one especially so. I just hope I never find myself in a community like the one he visits in this book. "

    " Page turner. Jack Reacher is a classic hero, a man who rights wrongs. When last encountered he was desperately trying to escape an impending explosion, scrabbling up a long long underground staircase. But of course there was no way a hero like Reacher would not escape...and so he turns up in the flatlands of Nebraska where he promptly gets entangled in a vicious criminal enterprise. Of all the recent Reacher books, I found this the most interesting. All the Lee Child components are there - a terrorised community, vicious (and a bit overdone) bullies, mathematically precise fighting, staccato dialogue and breathlessly long sentences and ofcourse the final twists as the bad guys get their desserts. But as always Lee Child writes in a good easy readable style and there is enough action to satisfy most fans. Yes, it is a bit corny and a bit implausible, and a bit of escapist fare, and all of that, but hey, can't complain, if you like a Rajni or a Bond movie, then why not a Reacher novel? "

    " Wouldn't be a Jack Reacher book without the action and it doesn't disappoint in that regard. I did get a little annoyed with the writing style in this book (so I took off a star). The book had lots of and he did this and this and this and that, I was a little over it but then the action would heat up and you could forget about the style for a little while. Can't wait for the next installment. "
