Description of this Book

#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. 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
