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.

“Child is a superb craftsman of suspense.” (Entertainment Weekly)
“The truth about Reacher gets better and better.” (Janet Maslin, The New York Times)
“Implausible, irresistible Reacher remains just about the best butt-kicker in thriller-lit.” (Kirkus Reviews)
This book kept me eager to listen on.. Great ending I didn't see coming. Think it would make for a good movie too.
I love jack reacher and love dick hill as narrator. Not sure but this one was one of the best so far. I'm going to try to read them in order
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.
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.
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!
Old World Traveler
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.
Jack Reacher is in a world all his own. Suggesting otherwise might get me black and blue.
Dick Hill is awesome - the whole thing.
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.
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.
If you have read a Reacher novel you know whats up
Who ever turns these into movies was it a joke casting Cruise as Reacher, have you read any of these books?
That justice prevails through difficult odds
yes, a lot of challenges and moments when you thought it was all over but reacher prevailed.
He is excellent in every performance.
Jack Reacher brings justice where no one else dares
makes you want to kick ass! good book and listen
"Worth Dying For", the 15th Jack Reacher novel, picks up shortly after the events of "61 Hours". Reacher still hasn't physically recovered from those explosive events when he finds himself deep in a new set of problems.
It all starts simply enough. Reacher is making his way across Nebraska and stops at a remote Motel. He aids an abused woman and in the process runs afoul of the Duncans, who seem to rule this part of the Nebraska corn country. It soon becomes apparent that something evil is going on. The Duncans use local muscle to get rid of Reacher, or rather they try to. (As anyone who has read any Jack Reacher books knows, he is very very hard to get rid of.)
Reacher soon finds himself fighting to survive against not only the local muscle, but also three sets of out-of-state gangsters, which just makes the mystery deeper. Why are all these thugs interested in this remote stretch of Nebraska? There is a deep secret here, and Reacher is just the man to dig it out.
Lee Chile surprised me several times in this book as the story took unexpected turns.
Enjoyed this book immensely , great story line and always kept you wondering where it was going with a very fine finish.
Lots of action, interaction between characters, and the background plot made it hard to turn off.
Dick Hill does a fabulous job interjecting not only the emotion of the moment but the different characters themselves.
Narrated by Dick Hill, this audiobook is the unabridged version, and almost fourteen hours of listening. The most interesting aspect of the story is the mystery of the ‘cargo’, as you won’t discover exactly what it is until the end of the novel. No spoilers, but it is as horrible as it gets. The adventures of Jack Reacher are typical, tough guy stuff, this lonely, high moral character hasn’t changed. Frankly, Reacher kills with a little too much abandon for my taste, but if you’re familiar with the Jack Reacher series, you probably think he never kills anybody that doesn’t need it. I’ve never read a Reacher novel I couldn’t finish, but I think the character has run his course. Not much new in character development … predictable behavior for him.
