Since the mess in South Dakota (see 61 Hours), former Army MP Jack Reacher has hitched south to nowhere Nebraska. Stopping for coffee, he gets involved with a drunken doctor and a nose bleed patient. His desire to help thirtyish Mrs. Duncan who Reacher believes may be an abused spouse lands him in trouble with the woman's husband and his clan who own the county like terrorist despots.

The Duncan family distrusts Reacher as they await a special secret shipment that should have arrived by now. Even as lethal as this clan is, they know their impatient customers are much more deadly than they are. They call sniper Eldridge Tyler while the killer drives his granddaughter home. Eldridge will be there to kill Reacher if he lingers in town as the only reason for him to do is to intrude on Duncan family business.

Worth Dying For is a direct follow up to the cliffhanging climax of 61 Hours so in spite of Lee Child providing a good backdrop, it behooves the audience to read the previous thriller first. The story line is fast-paced from the moment Reacher forces the intoxicated doctor to look at the Duncan woman and never slows down. Although this is a stop off on his way to Virginia, fans will enjoy the non-stop action as the hero appears to have out reached his survival skills.

Lee Child's previous Jack Reacher thriller 61 Hours was not up to par with his previous books. It is because it was incomplete. Now with Worth Dying For the second part of the story it will feel finished. Is Lee Child attempting to be like James Patterson with writing multiple books a year for profit because you are doing your fans an injustice.

    Really???

    Afteer reading this book I question american writers motives. It seems as though Mr. Child has nothing better to do than waste the time of countless readers. I am currently unemployed and usually spend my entire day reading. This book has turned me off from reading perhaps forever. I am now looking for employment.

    Worth Dying For - not recommended

    Because of the content in the final chapters I won't be reading any more Jack Reacher novels. This was way too graphic even though the criminals were killed in the end. I don't need this in my head.
