“Compulsively readable.”—The Wall Street Journal
“Don’t pick up [this] Jack Reacher novel if you don’t have some time on your hands, because Worth Dying For is difficult to put down. . . . Child manages to get an amazing amount of suspense into the novel.”—Associated Press
There’s deadly trouble in the corn county of Nebraska . . . and Jack 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, decades-old case of a missing child that Reacher can’t let go.
The Duncans want Reacher gone—and it’s not just past secrets they’re trying to hide. 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 put some distance between himself and the hard-core trouble that’s bearing down on him. For Reacher, that was also impossible.

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Lee Child's A Wanted Man.
“A model of suspenseful storytelling and an outstanding addition to a series that stands in the front rank of modern thrillers.”—The Washington Post
“Still the thinking man’s action hero, supreme butt-kicker and smartest guy in the room.”—The Seattle Times
“This series is about as good as pop fiction gets.”—The Miami Herald

Such a gripping novel packed full of action and suspense. Another one of Lee Childs excellent Jack Reacher tales. I could not put it down. And as usual justice is served Jack Reacher style!

Another good outing for Jack Reacher

I've enjoyed all the Reacher novels, and this one is no exception. What surprises me most about this series is that it doesn't get stale, even though they are all a little formulaic. Child has absolutely mastered his narrative pace, keeping things moving forward at a perfect speed so the story stays engaging throughout. At the end of the day, these stories are not complicated or particularly thought-provoking, but they are enjoyable. Seeing justice (extreme justice?) handed out by Jack Reacher is a fun little trip and a great way to spend a day.

I had a hard time with the lawlessness of Jack Reacher. What makes him better and why do strangers trust this mass murderer. It's been a while since I've read a Lee Child novel. I don't remember all the killing. That being said. The novel is a quick read, the style is fast paced. I'll have to read another of his novels to see if Reacher continues to kill and mame.
