WORTH DYING FOR by Lee Child There is deadly trouble in the bleak farmlands of Nebraska – and Jack Reacher walks right into it. When he hitchhiked by, he should have just kept on going, but that’s not his style. He wants answers to the incidents that crop up the moment he hits town. The Duncan clan have a hold over the terrified county families that he sees at every turn. Even the local doctor would rather take another slug of whisky at the lonely motel bar than treat a woman who’s obviously a victim of violence. Whoever’s destroying these people’s lives, Reacher wants to meet them. And he’s not too polite to make the first move.

The crew in this particular Lancaster consists of two Englishmen, a Canadian, an American, an Australian and a New Zealander. Different nationalities, same mission: to bomb three dams in the heavily defended Ruhr Valley, Germany’s industrial heartland, and to rip the guts out of Hitler’s war machine.
