With this electrifying debut, Lee Child has created both an ingeniously plotted thriller and a brilliant new character in suspense fiction. Jack Reacher is a hero for our time, a man of action unafraid to take justice into his own hands, and a man of keen and cunning intelligence.
From its chilling opening page, you know all is not well in Margrave, Georgia. The sleepy, forgotten town hasn't seen a crime in decades, but within the span of three days it witnesses events that leave everyone stunned. An unidentified man is found beaten and shot to death on a lonely country road. The police chief and his wife are butchered on a quiet Sunday morning. Then a bank executive disappears from his home, leaving his keys on the table and his wife frozen with fear.
The easiest suspect is Jack Reacher—an outsider, a man just passing through. But Reacher is not just any drifter. He is a tough ex-military policeman, trained to think fast and act faster. He has lived with and hunted the worst: the hard men of the American military gone bad.
When authorities learn the first victim was someone from Reacher's past, and he cannot convince them of his innocence, his patient self-defense becomes a raging crusade of revenge. With two cops who believe in him— a thoughtful black detective and a woman named Roscoe—he closes in on a ruthless conspiracy hiding behind Margrave's rural charm. But closing in on him is a team of killers so careful and efficient they are almost invisible. Step by step, the two teams circle— waiting to see which will be the first to walk onto the killing floor.
Stylish, clever, and full of surprises, Killing Floor is sure to be one of the most talked-about thrillers of the year.
Killing Floor is Lee Child's first novel. A former television writer, he lives in Cumbria, England, where he is at work on his second novel featuring Jack Reacher.
