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.

Reacber never fails

Lee Child never fails to entertain and Worth Dying For is one more fabulous novel in a line of great novels! You might think The Reacher character would be near the end, however Child has upped the anty one more time. I loved this one from start to finish. Worth Dying For has action from start to finish and has no filler in between. Dick Hill is the master of his craft and never so much as Reacher.
Thank you Mr Child for a wonderful ride and please keep them coming.

Reacher is back..Stronger than ever!!!!

Lee Child and Dick Hill are an unbeatable combination. This collaberation is reminiscent of the earlier Reacher books-and I couldn't be happier. And how better to portray that character than to give him a cavalier attitude towards all things permanent. A drifter who hitch-hikes throughout the US carrying maybe some money, a comb and toothbrush.

When he needs a change of clothes, he buys a new set and throws the old set away. (You would know this if you read all the previous Reacher books).
Not a care in the world. No responsibilities. And yet, when he stumbles upon evil doings in strange towns, he cannot just pass on by. Reacher feels compelled to tackle evil and right all wrongs before moving on.

This is the Jack Reacher I have come to love. Wow. Talk about a modern day hero. This is not your average, rich, James Bond character with fancy toys at his feet. Reacher reminds me a bit of John Wayne in those old Westerns where he always rescues the damsel in distress. Only, in this series, Reacher rescues entire communities.

I hope Lee Child never stops writing about Jack Reacher. And, of course, we could never do without Dick Hill's talent and ability to bring such a multi-faceted character to life in a big way. Thanks so much for a fabulous story. I could not put it down. The suspense kept growing right til the end. I listened to it all the way thru. Can't wait until the next book!! P.S. As someone who carries everything she owns when she travels, I spend lots of time trying to imagine making do with just what is in my pocket--never happen!!
