Praise for Killing Floor

“Stunningly dynamic”

Daily Mail

“Races along, spattering blood and body parts on the way”

Sunday Telegraph

“At least as good as any of Grisham's”

Cork Examiner

“If Rolls-Royce wrote thrillers they would look a lot like the work of Child. This was the first Jack Reacher novel and with its lean, spare prose it has one of the most intriguing heroes of our times and displays a gift for explosive drama.”
