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.

"Reacher at his best"
Finally I was able to listen to the unabridged version, because you don't want to miss any details in the story. This one is a classic story about how some bad people manage to terrorize an entire town. Of course that's the kind of thing that Reacher despises. What he thinks of as a case of wife beating becomes far more sinister as the story progresses. And, of course, Reacher manges to rise to the occasion, despite his injuries from his previous adventure.
"Well performed, very enjoyable"
I like the Reacher books because everything is logical. I learnt at school that fiction, or possibly drama, needs the "willing suspension of disbelief". Once you accept the premises that Jack Reacher starts from, the stories become believeable. His ability to predict the behaviour of other people is only surprising because he is so male - most men do not see these patterns as women do. He is attractive to women readers because he likes women and treats them as equals. His lack of commitment prevents too much sentimentality creeping in.
I like Jeff Harding's readings. Harding observes the rhythms of the prose and gets all the voices different. It's a very professional performance.
"Lots of action"
If you have a novel featuring Jack Reacher then you should get plenty of action, and in this book you certainly do! One of my favourite Jack Reacher books, busy and action packed throughout, really enjoyed the storyline!
Well Jack Reacher is brill in the novel 6ft 5ins 250lbs of fighting matchine the audio book was great to listen to also great narration. what I would like to know how can a 5ft 8in 10 1/2 stone when wet actor play
this character in the first film of Lee Child 's novel. have they made it into a comerdy.
But the book is certainly well worth the read BRILLIANT.
"Excellent plot, wrong voice!"
Had read all the other Jack Reacher novels and, although the story is still excellent, I didn't like the reader. Jack sounded all wrong! Listen to the preview and then buy if he sounds like your Jack!
"One of the best Jack Reacher books"
I am currently working through the Jack Reacher series and I'm enjoying them. " Worth Dying for" is one of my favourites so far.
Another really good story, I like most of the Jack Reacher books, this one is probably one of the best to date, action packed and kept me in suspense to the end
"Usual high standard"
A usual high standard from Lee Child, not the best of his books, but still very enjoyable. Plenty of fighting which is great!
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.
