Worth Dying For: A Jack Reacher Novel (Paperback)
A heart-racing page-turner that hits the ground running and then accelerates all the way to a colossal showdown
“Jack Reacher is the coolest continuing series character now on offer.”—Stephen King, in Entertainment Weekly
There’s deadly trouble in the corn country 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 case of a missing child, already decades old, that Reacher can’t let go.
The Duncans want Reacher gone—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.
For Reacher, it would have made much more sense to keep on going, to put some distance between himself and the hard-core trouble that’s bearing down on him. For Reacher, that was also impossible.

A native of England and a former television director, Lee Child lives in New York City.
