Killing Floor by Lee Child: On The Cover

This is the second Jack Reacher novel I'm reading in the series by author Lee Child, the first being The Affair that's actually 'before' the happenings of the first book that is Killing Floor. I was so impressed with The Affair that I knew I would end up reading all in the series.

For the moment, here's what's on the cover of the one I'm reading right now, Killing Floor....do read it, as expected, it's awesome!


'Stunningly dynamic' DAILY MAIL

Killing Floor is the first book in the internationally popular Jack Reacher series. It presents Reacher for the first time, as the tough ex-military cop of no fixed abode: a righter of wrongs, the perfect action hero.

Jack Reacher jumps off a bus and walks fourteen miles down a country road into Margrave, Georgia. An arbitrary decision he's about to regret.

Reacher is the only stranger in town on the day they have had their first homicide in thirty years. The cops arrest Reacher and the police chief turns eyewitness to place him at the scene. As nasty secrets leak out, and the body count mounts, one thing is for sure.

 They picked the wrong guy to take the fall.

 'All [Reacher thrillers] are ripping yarns, but since this is the first, it seems the logical place to start' Stephen King

 'One of the genre's finest practitioners' Independent

Doesn't he look like Jack Reacher to you himself? For me, ever since I read the first Jack Reacher book, author Lee Child has become embedded in my mind as Jack Reacher himself! And so it wasn't unexpected when I was hugely disappointed on seeing Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher in the movie version of One Shot (I do love love love Tom Cruise - but I hope he doesn't do any more Jack Reacher movies)
