The Killing Floor
By Lee Child
This is a huge series, and they say Tom Cruise is going to play Jack Reacher, which has fans up in arms, and I wanted to know why. Now, I can say I agree.
A giant of a man, quiet and brooding, ex-military and drifter, non-stop righting wrongs and action, I can’t see it either – but what a great read for fans of something a little faster paced than most!
Killing Floor introduces Jack Reacher, the tough ex-military cop of no fixed abode. Trained to think fast and act faster, with an eye for the women, he is truly every thinking reader’s perfect action hero. Margrave has just had its first homicide in thirty years. And Reacher is the only stranger in town. So the murder is pinned on him. As nasty secrets leak out and the body count mounts, only one thing is for sure: They picked the wrong guy to take the fall..
