Part of Jack Reacher series by Lee Child. The main building was perfectly round, with a domed roof. Beyond it each cabin was a circular domed structure of its own, trailing away from the mothership in a lazy curl, getting smaller as they went to exaggerate the perspective.

Pushing and shoving at the schoolyard gate or on the sidewalk outside the soda shop or late at night after a start-of-summer keg party was as far from fighting as two fat guys tossing lame spirals in the park were from the Superbowl. These guys were amateurs, and worse, they were complacent amateurs, accustomed to getting by on bulk and reputation alone.

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.

Huge Reacher fan (Reacher Creature). While in real life much of what Reacher does to get himself in and an out of a jam couldn't/wouldn't really fall neatly into place, he's a great guy to root for! He's not the underdog--he's way too bug for that. But he believes in justice and the American way and fairness. He believes that if you hurt the weak you should pay for that. And he'll see to it that that happens.
Speaking of helping the weak, that's how we meet Reacher in this book. Helping people is like Reacher's spidey sense. When he overhears there might be a woman in need, Reacher rushes in to save the day. Nevermind the fact that he's sticking his nose in to someone else's business...Reacher can't NOT help.
This story is part of a rare 4-part series, so you'll have a better context for some of the characters and Reacher's journey if you start with 61 Hours. (I've read that one twice.) Once you start reading you won't want to put the book down. Then you're hooked for life!

I have been hooked on the Jack Reacher series since I saw the first movie and read the first action packed novel. Now that there is soon to be another Jack Reacher movie (Never go back) coming out soon I have begun to again read these novels again. I just finished reading Worth Dying for (A Reacher Novel) by Lee Child and loved it.

I find it amazing that Lee Child can come up with original and unique Jack Reacher stories that keep you turning the pages. In this story it is winter and Jack happens to be at a bar in of all places Nebraska, where the wind rips across the flat barren fields which are filled with corn in the summer. This novel is packed with good and bad characters who Reacher handles in his own special way.

What starts out as an alcoholic and almost drunk doctor who did not want to visit one of his patients until Reacher shames the doctor and Jack volunteers to drive the doctor’s car to see the beat up woman, turns into a complex murder mystery with bad guys running around all trying to kill Reacher. Jack was on his way to Virginia but the good people in this part of corn husker country wind up helping Reacher hide as they relate the corrupt tale of local and out of town thugs who have run rough shod over everyone in the area. I never like to reveal too much when reviewing a novel because it spoils it for the reader; however, I will let you know this much about this action packed novel.

This is a fast moving tale and I found it amazing how in the dead of winter in this flat corn crop area of Nebraska Jack was able to elude the numerous bad guys as he solves the mystery of a missing girl, murder and a vicious sex slave smuggling ring. I found this book a fantastic read. Jack Reacher is my kind of freelance detective and investigator. I highly recommend this novel.

Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Pro-Systems Combatives Vol. 1,2).

In “Worth Dying For” Lee Child breaks things up a bit with his stoic, strolling hero by not having him buy cheap new clothes and discarding the ones he’s wearing immediately and by allowing an opponent to break JR’s nose for the first time in his life. Given the many brawls Reacher has already been in as chronicled in the previous 14 novels his shattered schnoz will surprise long time readers. The fun thing about this character is that he dishes out an amazing amount of pain and punishment and for the most part remains unscathed so his getting injured is something, maybe he’s getting old? Of course for fans of the Liam Neeson and Denzel Washington revenge flicks featuring 60 year olds Reacher’s got plenty of life left in him.

The plot is similar in some respects to earlier books; a small rural town is held in the grip of a rich individual (or family) that has some sort of sinister plot going on terrorizing the locals. Murder follows and Reacher ends up neck deep in the situation and ultimately dispenses justice. In “Worth Dying For” Reacher’s in Nebraska and the Duncan family runs a trucking company that has a monopoly controlling the transport of all crop shipments in the area. If you displease the Duncan’s your crops rot in the field and you suffer financially. The family is involved in a smuggling operation of some sort and they also have a darker secret that is eventually revealed. It’s classic Jack Reacher taking on a criminal family and their many henchmen singlehandedly in satisfying style. For a change there’s no romantic liaison for JR in this tale and Child avoids making any of the military related gaffs that populate many of his novels. Overall a worthy adventure for fans of the series that will keep you coming back for more.

As an aside, I saw an online interview with Lee Child that suggested a Jack Reacher television series with Netflix is in the works which could be interesting. The interviewer asked about casting and specifically if the lead role would be someone bigger than Tom Cruise (star of the two Reacher motion pictures) and Child emphatically confirmed it would be a ‘big guy’. Stay tuned!

Can't get enough of Jack Reacher. Can't get enough of Lee Child. Child writes with short sentences, all that's needed, nothing that's not. Jack is on a trek to Virginia, hitching, of course. He is recently out of Nebraska, where he barely survives an explosion that leaves his arms and body sore. He is dropped off in front of a motel that looks like a flying saucer, and is aptly named the Apollo, built during the halcyon days of the space program. He befriends the local doctor, finding there are dark secrets and the farming community is being held hostage by a family that may or may not haul their crops if they do anything to upset the family.
There is more going on than just the control of a community. It is of the most despicable nature.
