<b>“Jack Reacher is the coolest continuing series character now on offer.”—Stephen King,<i> </i>in <i>Entertainment Weekly </i><br> </b><br>#1 <i>New York Times </i>bestselling author Lee Child follows the electrifying <i>61 Hours</i> with his latest Reacher thriller—a story that hits the ground running and then accelerates all the way to a colossal showdown.<br><br>There’s 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 it’s the unsolved case of a missing child, already decades-old, that Reacher can’t let go.<br><br>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. <br><br>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.<br><br>For Reacher, that was also impossible.<br><br><i>Worth Dying For</i> 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.
<strong>Amazon Best Books of the Month, October 2010</strong>: You'd think that after 14 novels featuring hardscrabble hero, Jack Reacher, Lee Child's pulse-pounding series would start showing signs of wear. It is nothing short of remarkable that Child is not only able to continually reinvent his ex-military cop, but that each installment is better than the last. <em>Worth Dying For</em> finds our battered hero hiding in plain sight in a tiny Nebraska town, trying to recover from the catastrophe he left behind in South Dakota (no spoilers here, but readers are still arguing over <em>61 Hours</em>’s cliffhanger ending). Fans rarely see such a physically vulnerable Reacher (in the first part of the book he is barely able to lift his arms) but it just adds to the fist-pumping satisfaction of seeing our weary good guy take on the small-town baddies. --<em>Daphne Durham</em>
