What to expect

Brought to you by Penguin.

Die Trying is the second book in Lee Child’s internationally popular Jack Reacher series, read by Jeff Harding.

Jack Reacher, alone, strolling nowhere.

A Chicago street in bright sunshine. A young woman, struggling on crutches. Reacher offers her a steadying arm.

And turns to see a handgun aimed at his stomach.

Chained in a dark van racing across America, Reacher doesn’t know why they’ve been kidnapped. The woman claims to be FBI. She’s certainly tough enough. But at their remote destination, will raw courage be enough to overcome the hopeless odds?

Although the Jack Reacher novels can be listened to in any order, Die Trying is the second in the series.

‘Cunning, explosive . . . A thumping good read.’ Time Out

Critics Review

  • Jack Reacher is a wonderfully epic hero; tough, taciturn, yet vulnerable… Irresistible

  • Reacher combines the physique of the Commando-period Schwarzenegger with the analytical brilliance of Sherlock Holmes

    Himself Magazine
  • The taut plot, set firmly in headline territory, lays bare the world of the rabid, worm-like militias crawling in the political underbelly of America… This is an action adventure that never gives you a moment’s peace and quiet – an excellent read
