Killing Floor (Jack Reacher Novels)by Lee Child
Synopses & Reviews
INTRODUCING JACK REACHER
The bestselling novel featuring the "wonderfully epic hero" (People) who inspired the hit film Jack Reacher.
Ex-military policeman Jack Reacher is a drifter. He’s just passing through Margrave, Georgia, and in less than an hour, he’s arrested for murder. Not much of a welcome. All Reacher knows is that he didn’t kill anybody. At least not here. Not lately. But he doesn’t stand a chance of convincing anyone. Not in Margrave, Georgia. Not a chance in hell.
“All [Jack Reacher novels] are ripping yarns, but....Killing Floor wins awards for Best Corrupt Southern Town in a Summer Novel and Best Exploding Warehouse.” Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly
“Combines high suspense with almost nonstop action. Reacher is a wonderfully epic hero: tough, taciturn, yet vulnerable.” People
“Great style and careful plotting. The violence is brutal…depicted with the kind of detail that builds dread and suspense.” The New York Times
“A complex thriller with layer upon layer of mystery and violence and intrigue....A long unsettling trip that leaves your brain buzzing and your stomach knotted. The author pens nightmarish images as casually as an ordinary writer would dot an ‘i’ or cross a ‘t’.” The Philadelphia Inquirer
“This is such a brilliantly written first novel that [Child] must be channeling Dashiell Hammett....Reacher handles the maze of clues and the criminal unfortunates with a flair that would make Sam Spade proud.” Playboy
“A tough, compelling thriller with characters who jump off the page.” Houston Chronicle
“Violent and visceral....A cut above…Reacher is as tough as he is resourceful. An exciting, edge-of-the-chair account. Compelling and relentlessly suspenseful.” The Denver Post
“Some novelists can write top-notch action and some can create compelling mysteries, yet it’s rare to find both of those skills displayed in a single book. Lee Child’s Killing Floor is one of them. But not content with writing a rip-roaring thriller, Child also gives us one of the truly memorable tough-guy heroes in recent fiction: Jack Reacher. And throws in Southern atmosphere to die for. Here’s to more of the same.” Jeffery Deaver, author of The Bone Collector
“Child serves up a big, rangy plot, menace as palpable as a ticking bomb, and enough battered corpses to make an undertaker grin.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Beautifully detailed action scenes and fascinating arcane about currency and counterfeiting....[A] taut and tough-minded first novel....Two scenes of brutal violence in a nearby prison are tendered with exquisite precision, as is a stalking murder inside the baggage area of Atlanta airport.” Publishers Weekly
Across the country women are being murdered by a killer who leaves no evidence, no wounds, no signs of struggle, and no clues to a motive. They are perfect crimes. In fact, only one thing links each victim: they all knew Jack Reacher.
