Killing Floor – Lee Child

Killing Floor is the debut novel by Lee Child, first published in 1997 …

… the first book to feature the character 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 Jack 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.

I’ve already downloaded Die Trying, the second novel in the Jack Reacher series. There are already 19 books in that series. If I get hooked, I’ll be reading Reacher revenge stories for a long, long time. 🙂
