Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

Awards Short-listed for Galaxy National Book Awards: Sainsbury's Popular Fiction Book of the Year 2010
NZ Review 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
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 5 stars (out of 5)
