Worth Dying for

Worth Dying For - Lee Child 9/30/12 ** Well, on the second read, a very good book. However, after re-reading 61 Hours, Worth Dying For, and A Wanted Man in quick succession, I have some quibbles. Child presents these as happening in quick succession. Having a meth ring, white slave ring, and middle-eastern banking scheme in the space of 1 week and 2 states seems a bit far-fetched. I think the tales stay more believable when they are loosely set in this decade.

10/10 ** A solid Lee Child/Jack Reacher performance, though it didn't leave me with the same immediate need for a sequel that 61 Hours did.
