#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
“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

I have read just about all of Lee Child's books and this one was one of the best. A lot of butt kicking and justice dispensed. A very good read.

This is one of the author's best thrillers yet. It is concise,fast packed,and with the just the right touch of danger. I would reccomend this book to anyone.
Worth Dying For
Great read.... Reacher is "Superman" as he again exterminates all who come in his path. Tough to put this one down and read it in just a few days. Would make a good movie, but Tom Cruise is not the physical specimen that is the 6' 5", 250lb Reacher in the books.
By The Review-Man
For me, this was my first Reacher novel, and I loved it. Flows nice, makes you want to keep reading. Reminiscent of Without Remorse (Clancy). Would highly recommend this one
Juxtaposition of the evil in the book and the Nebraska farmland
This book is particularly striking when one juxtaposes the extreme evil of the crimes with the (apparent) innocence of a rural, farmland setting. Another novel twist is the control of a farming community through ownership of the transport that brings goods to market. All in all, a terrific Reacher adventure.
A great read

Way better than 61 hours. I got so bored reading about the snow I couldn't even finish. Child has some of that in this book but overall a great book. I'd recommend it
