Worth Dying For

Finished March 20
Worth Dying For by Lee Child, read by Dick Hill
Wonderful, as always. Reacher is on his way to Virginia, continuing where he left off in 61 Hours. Again, he is in a rural area, this time in Nebraska. He has been let off near a small motel, the Apollo Inn, in the middle of nowhere. There is one other patron at the motel bar, a doctor well on his way to getting drunk. When a call comes in from a patient of the doctor, Reacher insists on driving him to the patient's home. What he finds there set him off against the victim's husband and gets the husband eager to have revenge. As usual, one thing leads to another, and Reacher is heavily involved.
The community is one bound to a very controlling family, seemingly locked in a situation they can't get out of. Some of the situation there are in is due to the family's greed. But there is also an incident dating back 25 years to a missing child that has set the community against each other. Reacher finds himself investigating this old case to try to find the truth, and he finds so much more. International smuggling is part of the scene and some very determined people are involved.
A great listen, very entertaining, with pageturning action.


  1. So glad you enjoyed this. I'm still not so good at listening to a book. I need to work on that.

  2. Well, I have a pretty long commute, about an hour each way, and find it a good way to get reading done. Some books don't lend themselves to it, as one wants to flip back and check things or read a passage more slowly to take in the information better, but for this kind of book, it is great. The reader also makes a huge difference, and Dick Hill does a great job here.
