Theres deadly trouble in the corn country 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 its the unsolved case of a missing child, already decades-old, that Reacher cant let go.
The Duncans want Reacher gone - and its not just past secrets theyre trying to hide. Theyre awaiting a secret shipment thats already late - and they have the kind of customers no one can afford to annoy. For as dangerous as the Duncans are, theyre 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 thats bearing down on him.
For Reacher, that was also impossible.
Worth Dying For is the kind of explosive thriller only Lee Child could write and only Jack Reacher could survive - a heart-racing page-turner no suspense fan will want to miss.

Child is famous for his descriptions and details and because of the desolate corn country of Nebraska, the first part of the book was boring. The suspense builds as the story unfolds and in the end Reacher comes through again as always.
Lee Child was born in the exact geographic center of England, in the heart of
the industrial badlands. Never saw a tree until he was twelve. It was the sort
of place where if you fell in the river, you had to go to the hospital for a
mandatory stomach pump. The sort of place where minor disputes were settled with
box cutters and bicycle chains. He's got the scars to prove it.
But he survived, got an education, and went to law school, but only because he didn't want to be a lawyer. Without the pressure of aiming for a job in the field, he figured it would be a relaxing subject to study. He spent most of the time in the university theater - to the extent that he had to repeat several courses, because he failed the exams - and then went to work for Granada Television in ...
