Worth Dying For

(Jack Reacher 15)




The heartstopping new thriller starring today's most admired action hero, the gallant and enigmatic loner Jack Reacher, 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.

Praise for Worth Dying For

“Worth queuing up for.”

The Sun

“Explosive as ever.”

Daily Mirror

“Just like Lisbeth Salander, Stieg Larsson's super violent super-genius, Reacher always find a way...Another cracking story from Child, who just seems to get better and better.”

City A.M.

“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.”

Sunday Times

“Forget Tony Blair's memoirs, for most people the new Lee Child is the most anticipated book of the year. And with good reason...this is Child on fine form.”
