"Jack Reacher is the coolest continuing series character now on offer."--Stephen King, ""in "Entertainment Weekly "
#1 "New York Times "bestselling author Lee Child follows the electrifying "61 Hours" with his latest Reacher thriller--a story that 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.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2010-10-01)

Having survived the near-cataclysmic ending to 61 Hours, Jack Reacher is on the prowl again. It's only a few days later, still bitterly cold, and Reacher is in Nebraska, where he finds a community ruled by a family of crooks. The Duncan clan specializes in beatings, murder, child molestation, and smuggling. They are also protected by a bunch of ex-linemen from the University of Nebraska, who are large, strong, and not very smart.

However evil and sadistic the Duncans are, they are small fish in the world of smuggling and fearful that their sleazy empire will collapse. Thus, when a totally annoyed Reacher starts to dismember both it and the goons, the Duncans become increasingly desperate, calling for outside help from the Mafia and sordid Middle Eastern partners. With Reacher outnumbered about 20 to one, the odds just don't seem fair-to the bad guys, that is.

Verdict: Reacher's growing number of fans will enjoy this one. Unless, of course, they went to the University of Nebraska. Highly recommended.

Book description

“Jack Reacher is the coolest continuing series character now on offer.”—Stephen King, in Entertainment Weekly

 

#1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child follows the electrifying 61 Hours with his latest Reacher thriller—a story that 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.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5★ by 1reviewer.
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Good prose, but... Lee Child writes good quality prose. The plot of "Worth Dying For" however, is not credible in (a) the large number of people who are killed, and (b) the length of time that the "bad guys" carried on a shocking criminal enterprise without being discovered. 05/14/2011
