Worth Dying For is Lee Child’s 15th book featuring ex-military cop, Jack Reacher. This one has Reacher fighting the bad guys in Nebraska farm country, 60 miles from the nearest local police.
All Reacher books could have the same review: “A breakneck thriller that will keep you up late turning pages.” These books are all about action, excitement, and plot. Not that the plots are complex, but there is always a lot going on. The central story is always Beowulf fighting Grendel – the big, strong, stranger who sweeps in to protect the townsfolk from a monster.
And it works. Over and over. These books are paperback crack.

This counts as one of my books for the 2011 Chunkster Challenge. Although, I have to say that these 525 or so pages went by a lot faster than most. 500+ pages of the adventures of Jack Reacher aren't like reading The Adventures of Augie March, for example. No criticism intended for either Child or Bellow.
