Publisher's Summary

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 novel no suspense fan will want to miss.

Reacher at his best

Finally I was able to listen to the unabridged version, because you don't want to miss any details in the story. This one is a classic story about how some bad people manage to terrorize an entire town. Of course that's the kind of thing that Reacher despises. What he thinks of as a case of wife beating becomes far more sinister as the story progresses. And, of course, Reacher manges to rise to the occasion, despite his injuries from his previous adventure.

Well performed, very enjoyable

I like the Reacher books because everything is logical. I learnt at school that fiction, or possibly drama, needs the "willing suspension of disbelief". Once you accept the premises that Jack Reacher starts from, the stories become believeable. His ability to predict the behaviour of other people is only surprising because he is so male - most men do not see these patterns as women do. He is attractive to women readers because he likes women and treats them as equals. His lack of commitment prevents too much sentimentality creeping in.

I like Jeff Harding's readings. Harding observes the rhythms of the prose and gets all the voices different. It's a very professional performance.
