Number one bestseller Lee Child's very first novel, which introduced his iconic character Jack Reacher, now reissued in B format

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...

Reviews

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.
