61 Hours ended with maverick loner Jack Reacher trapped in a desperate situation from which escape seemed impossible. Even for him. But Reacher has done the impossible before.
Now there’s deadly trouble in the wilds of Nebraska… and 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 eight-year-old girl, already decades-old, that Reacher can’t let go.The Duncans want Reacher gone - or dead. 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. Reacher - bruised and battered - should have just kept on going. But for Reacher, that was impossible.
Worth Dying For is the kind of explosive thriller only Lee Child could write and only Jack Reacher could survive - a heart-racing novel no suspense fan will want to miss.

Once you start with Jack Reacher I found it was hard to stop. I have read several of his books lately and I think Lee Child is always great value
My first selection from audible turned out to be a brilliant choice. The descriptive narrative made it feel as though I were there in the action. The storyline drew me in and I couldn't turn it off. Excellent.
Lee Child never seems to be short of a story or situation for Jack Reacher and this book is as good as all the others. A man's book for sure though!
Another great Jack Reacher book from Lee Child. Yet another subject..children. Well read and interesting.
"Slow, slow, quick, quick, slow"
Much more slow than quick, definately not his best Jack Reacher. Nevertheless, can't help but love him.
"Sounds nothing like Reacher!"
This is hard for me... this is the first Jack Reacher book I've actually listened to, having previously read the books in the series leading up to this one. Always tricky as you build your own profile of a long standing character and a book that requires multiple 'voices' being covered by just one narrator is tough.
However, the Narrator was nothing like Reacher should sound like... Nothing. Reacher has gone from place to place globally as a child and also as an adult, he has no real defining accent... in this version he does. Why?
He was made to sound almost insignificant with this weird nasal accent. Never have I read mention of Reacher being nasally (did I miss that somehow?). So it was really off putting and I didn't enjoy the story half as much as I probably would have if I'd read it as normal and I'd think twice about another Reacher audiobook.... whoever is narrating.
The twist in the shipment.
Someone with a less obvious accent.
"Reacher as we all like him"
Jeff Harding brings Jack None Reacher to life for me. His voice embodies what I think Reacher sounds like!
In this story Reacher is making his way to Virginia to meet with Susan the MP major he spoke to on the phone. His detour into Nebraska brings him into the sights of the Duncan family who have ruled the community for years. Bullying and controlling the people who dare not say anything out of turn.
Reacher hates bullies but what does catch his interest is the 8 year old girl who vanished 25 years ago.
"Jack Reacher continues his epic journey"
Another great performance
Once again cheering him on doing the right thing
Some wonderful new people who you can easily relate to
"It's so nice when people get their come upance!"
I enjoyed this Jack Reacher a lot.
As always spoken well, clear diction, allowing the wry humour through.
I'm not certain but this book might well have had the highest body count of all his stories.
This review like many others is another review on another Jack Reacher. This is a great listen with a very good narrator who has a voice which I think optimises Jack Reacher. The story follows a similar pattern to others but does contain an ultimate but not story dependent link to the previous book.
