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.

I'm hooked!

This is my first Reacher novel and I'm hooked. I like the detail. I like the main character and the supporting cast. I like the plot. Perhaps I wouldn't make a good detective but it took me quite a while to figure out the smuggled cargo. This makes the story that much more interesting. Dick Hill does a fine job narrating although his female voices weren't that convincing.
I haven't READ a novel since I joined audible.com; I read other material (newspapers, journals, manuals, etc.). It is a luxury to have others read stories to you; and so much depends on the author-narrator combination. The Child-Hill team works and I look forward to my next download.

Classic, Kick-Butt Jack Reacher

If you like Jack Reacher taking care of bad guys, defending women and children and prevailing against seemingly insurmountable odds, you will love the latest installment in the series. The violence is over-the-edge in this one and Reacher's vigilantism pushes the envelope, but Lee Child finally decided to give Reacher fans a large dose of what they long for. Dick Hill did an excellent job with his voice characterizations but I wish the sound editor could equalize the volume of his whispers and screams. Not that I was really in suspense, but we also sort of found out what happened to Reacher at the end of 61 Hours. Thankfully Child didn't feel the need to tease his readers in this one. Nonetheless, I look forward to the next installment.
