Samenvatting



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. Reacher - bruised and battered - should have just kept on going. But for Reacher, that was impossible.



Featuring Jack Reacher, hero of the new blockbuster movie starring Tom Cruise, in an explosive follow-up to the cliffhanger ending of 61 Hours. Has Jack Reacher finally met his match? 61 Hours ended with Reacher trapped in a desperate situation from which escape seemed impossible. Even for him.Was that really the end of the road for the maverick loner? Worth Dying For is the kind of explosive thriller only Lee Child could write - a heart-racing page-turner no suspense fan will want to miss.

Recensie(s)

A sequel to the terrific 61 Hours (try to read it first)... one of the great storytellers of the thriller genre * The Times * His is an ironclad storytelling ethos, a gift for narrative that grips like the proverbial vice... Reacher, as ever, is sui generis - a violent force for good set down by the author to eliminate evil and move on. But what counts is Child's ability to keep the reader turning the pages. If anyone can put down Worth Dying For after the first few pages, then they shouldn't really be reading thrillers at all * Independent * 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 * The Sunday Times * Worth queuing up for * Sun * Explosive as ever * Daily Mirror *

    Lee Child annoyed some readers by ending his masterpiece “61 Hours” with ‘to be continued’. In this sequel, nothing about this adventure is mentioned, except for Jack Reacher (JR)’s severe muscle stress and pain in arms and shoulders from his narrow escape from a deep WW II underground storage facility in South Dakota.
    Thumbing his way to Virginia, JR overnights in a motel in a remote Nebraska county long terrorized by the Duncan family, who run a transport company. For decades they have monopolized moving crops to market, charging crippling tariffs. In the first 100 pages, JR dispatches three of their 10 ex-football player enforcers and bodyguards to hospital and lengthy rehabilitation. But why is so much muscle needed for a seasonal job? The Duncan’s are bleeding the county’s farmers white, but surely they must have another line of business, source of income. How else can they afford year-round protection?
    The Duncan’s soon turn out to be part of a long supply chain involved in the import and trade in forbidden items or controlled substances into the USA, moved further south by criminal gangs. What the substance is, is for readers to find out. But a delayed shipment’s arrival from Canada attracts three pairs of out of state goons to rural Nebraska. They are Italian, Arab, and Iranian.
    JR is at his best in this book, outpunching and outsmarting his direct opponents, relying on logical thinking, induction, deduction, probability and combat experience. He also slowly solves the disappearance, 25 years earlier, of the adopted 8-year old daughter of the woman who cooks him a solid breakfast when he is forced to go on the run in flat, cold, thinly-populated Nebraska. Fabulous piece of writing, every word and sentence in the right place.
