Worth Dying For by Lee Child
This is my review of the book “Worth Dying For” by Lee Child, which I read recently. This was the second Jack Reacher book that I mentioned in my previous post http://fullersfolio.weebly.com/1/post/2014/02/-gone-tomorrow-by-lee-child.html which I got from the second hand book shop, and have finally got round to reading.
Like the last Jack Reacher book, the plot line is very different. Jack is out in the wilds of Nebraska, and comes across a small town that is totally under the thumb of a local clan the Duncans. He tries to help a local, and uncovers a case of a missing eight year old girl, that has not been solved. He starts investigating and the Duncans don't like this, so they go after Jack.
Added to this the Duncans as a trucking business, are shipping more than just corn. A mysterious illegal package, that various parties are interested in. The underworld food chain. The Duncans blame Jack for a delay and they all want to come and investigate what is going on.
Just the perfect setting for a massive battle with Jack at the centre. This was not really a complex plot like the previous Sherlock Holmes Mystery – the biggest question was – what was the illegal cargo, and who besides Jack would be left standing at the end of the story.
All good fun really, the book was an easy page turner – This was book 32 week 24 fiction 29 (audio book 7) non fiction 3.
