Worth Dying For

Book 15, Jack Reacher

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Featuring Jack Reacher, hero of the new blockbuster movie starring Tom Cruise, in an explosive follow-up to the cliffhanger ending of 61 Hours.

Has Jack Reacher finally met his match?

61 Hours ended with Reacher trapped in a desperate situation from which escape seemed impossible. Even for him.

Was that really the end of the road for the maverick loner?

Worth Dying For is the kind of explosive thriller only Lee Child could write - a heart-racing page-turner no suspense fan will want to miss.

From Publishers Weekly

06 September 2010 – In Child's exciting 15th thriller featuring one-man army Jack Reacher (after 61 Hours), Reacher happens into a situation tailor-made for his blend of morality and against-the-odds heroics. While passing through an isolated Nebraska town, the ex-military cop persuades the alcoholic local doctor to treat Eleanor Duncan, who's married to the abusive Seth, for a "nosebleed." Reacher later breaking Seth's nose prompts members of the Duncan clan, who are involved in an illegal trafficking scheme, to seek revenge. Reacher, who easily disposes of two hit men sent to get him, winds up trying to solve a decades-old case concerning a missing eight-year-old girl. While Child convincingly depicts his hero's superhuman abilities, he throws in a few lucky breaks to enable the outnumbered Reacher to survive. Crisp, efficient prose and well-rounded characterizations (at least of the guys in the white hats) raise this beyond other attempts to translate the pulse-pounding feel of the Die Hard films into prose.

Great read

Love the reacher novels all of the books are a great read.

Worth dying for

I think this story is a change from the norm and I found it hard going. The cliff hanger from 61 hours is explained in the muscle strain encountered in pulling himself up the metal staircase in the vacuum caused by the explosion / fire. Unfortunately the amount of vigilante killing Reacher undertakes in this story is a bit ridiculous!

However... You want the whole have to read this one regardless :-)

Alright actually

It is one of *those* Jack Reacher books that follows the *small town living in fear of/living in fear of losing the underground criminal ring posing as a family/business/legitimate business/town's golden goose - that nobody wants to confront or upset but with a push from JR a select few opt to help* matrix.


On the upside, it's good on it's own merits. It's gritty. It's a rare glimpse of JR feeling a bit jaded and vulnerable. And amazingly, there's no obligatory roll in the hay this time.

It's a long way from being the worst JR story. And if it was the first one I had read, I would have enough incentive to read another. Don't buy it though, it'll come up in the public library eventually :-)
