The heartstopping new thriller by No.1 bestselling author Lee Child.
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 page-turner no suspense fan will want to miss.
About the Author
Lee Child is British but moved with his family from Cumbria to the United States to start a new career as an American thriller writer. He now divides his time between New York and France. All his thrillers feature Jack Reacher, the former US military cop and maverick drifter, and all have been big international bestsellers.
"A sequel to the terrific 61 Hours (try to read it first)... one of the great storytellers of the thriller genre" The Times "His is an ironclad storytelling ethos, a gift for narrative that grips like the proverbial vice... Reacher, as ever, is sui generis - a violent force for good set down by the author to eliminate evil and move on. But what counts is Child's ability to keep the reader turning the pages. If anyone can put down Worth Dying For after the first few pages, then they shouldn't really be reading thrillers at all" Independent "As a warrior who lacks a car, credit card, phone or weapon of his own, and has no continuing human ties or home, he is even more of a lone, denuded outsider than Lisbeth Salander, the heroine of Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy. Both are avengers who play on our atavistic instincts: when we cheer their lethal justice - if we do - we're acknowledging the pull of a primitive hatred that demands death and can't wait, scornful of the protracted pussyfooting of the law" The Sunday Times "Worth queuing up for" Sun "Explosive as ever" Daily Mirror
