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)
I have read all the Jack Reacher books. Some I like more than others. I know some people complain about to much action or not enough and things that seem impossible. But it is FICTION. So even when things seem impossible, I just read and enjoy. I did think to myself while reading the book, did Jack turn in to a serial killer. I love the fantasy. Jack is tough and always tries to right the wrongs. I wanted to know more about how he lived through the the blow up in 61 hours and I was a little let down. I missed the "I said Nothing" from Jack Reacher. I really liked the book. I really would like to give it a half star more rating. The plot and characters where good. Jack does what he has to do and I look forward to more Reacher books.
I was skeptical because of how quickly this book came out. But it was really quite solid. I got more invested in the non Reacher characters than I have in several books. It's a solid outing!
This is one of the best Reacher novels ever. I have been a fan of the Jack Reacher series, and have listened to all of them. This is by far the best, after 61 hours I didn't think it could get any better. Lee Child has out done himself. Can't wait for the next book in the series. I won't spoil it but it has to continue.
Not the best Reacher novel , but he is always entertaining. Jack Reacher’s since of justice is always good in a world of chaos and disorder.
No matter where you go, there you are.
Aside for an inexplicable scene where Reacher's incredible sixth sense for danger seems turned off or in the shop for repair, this book has the nomad back on track. I guess Jack had to get captured at some point, but I just do not see him forgetting to keep a third eye out for trouble. Child might want to stray a bit from the formula in the future.
If this was your first look at Reacher, the hook would have been set. A fine romp with all the bad guys lining up for their whipping.
Calling those who chose not to die in Vietnam cowards was uncalled for and off-putting.
A voracious reader from the age of five, I'm quite new to audiobooks, but looking forward to hearing some great stories. I loathe vampires.
A better narrator. I've heard some excellent ones, and this guy isn't one of them.
Only with a different narrator.
Based on this book, no.
Disappointment. I've read and enjoyed many of these books in print, but none of the author's wry observation or wit comes across in this narration. None of the characters are particularly differentiated, either. The voice becomes monotonous, and that robs the story of tension.
I wonder if it's too late for a refund.
