Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times best-selling 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 afoul 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 novel only Lee Child could write and only Jack Reacher could survive - a heart-racing, no-pause thriller no suspense fan will want to miss.

Take another thrill ride with Jack Reacher.

    "Another good one"

    The writing is just so good! My husband turned me on to Reacher and now I'm addicted. Can't wait to start the next one.

    "Love this series with BEST narrater ever!"

    I love the Lee Child- jack reacher series. Great characters and well written. I read the first 11 books and have used audible for the next 5. Dick Hill is a delight to listen too. I will absolutely look for more books narrated by him. Truly worth listening too.

    Story
    "Jack Reacher's road trip to Virginia."

    I bought this book to see how Reacher escaped the bunker explosion in "61 Hours". Hint: He didn't get in a refrigerator and get blown free. The real explanation is far more prosaic and is only dealt with briefly in this volume.

    But along the way we encounter Reacher crushing REALLY EVIL people and putting some spine into the DOWNTRODDEN HOMESTEADERS. So Reacher never really encounters either good or bad people, he only deals with prototypes.

    Reacher extirpates the bad guys with his usual efficiency. All this is well and good, but I'd really like to see Jack Reacher vs. Jason Borne.

    I know that a lot of people appreciate Dick Hill's narration. So do I on other books. His powers are somewhat diminished in this series, however. Since Child pads his prose with the usual summertime fluff, I find it useful to set my player to it's faster speed. Hill's story telling prowess, therefore, is somewhat diminished at chipmunk speed.

    Old, tired, wrinkled butt. I'd be a gentleman of leisure but I'm married. Like to read/listen/whatever. Also like money and naked women.

    "Worth Dying For"

    Very intricate plot. Sometimes too much detail. Still, I liked it. Reacher's not in a wheelchair yet. Far from it.

    "Jack Reacher is becoming a favorite of mine."

    This book kept me eager to listen on.. Great ending I didn't see coming. Think it would make for a good movie too.

    "Story pretty good but Jack more of a bully than no"
    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were a few scenes where I felt Jack was much more of a bully than he usually is in these books. It made me very uncomfortable and not like him very much.


    Any additional comments?

    I did like most of the story and there were some good little twists in there... but it wasn't as good as many Reacher books.

    "Just ok. Overwrought!"

    I have read and or listened to several of Child's books and have enjoyed them a lot. This one however felt like he went back and added a lot of detail to stretch out the number of pages and satisfy his publishing company's requirements. This could have been a good read but there were times the mundane details were tortuous!

    Story
    "Bad A** Reacher!"
    What made the experience of listening to Worth Dying For the most enjoyable?

    Reacher beats the cr** out of all sorts of bad guys. He is impervious to beatings. Trucks can't even run the guy over. And when it comes to pulverizing rednecks he is the best! Even football players.


    What other book might you compare Worth Dying For to and why?

    Jack Reacher is in a world all his own. Suggesting otherwise might get me black and blue.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    Dick Hill is awesome - the whole thing.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh? Cry? No, I was hanging on every word to see who was going to be run over, punched through a wall, left with a brain condition, or given an advanced case of memory loss.


    Any additional comments?

    Yeh, Just remember that Jack Reacher is an ex-army military policeman - not a Navy Seal. Reacher is in a league all his own. If you see a big guy on a bus, ...he likes coffee and be nice.
