Review of Killing Floor, Jack Reacher #1 – or Why I Love Lee Child
I love Lee Child. With the same depth of passion which I hate Nicholas Sparks, I love Lee Child.
I just finished reading Killing Floor, Jack Reacher Novel #1 by Lee Child.
Child wields his pen like a knife. You don’t know it is pointed at you until you’re waist-deep in the story.
Then it’s too late.
The knife is in and you know he’s going to twist it.
You just know.
Only after he toys with you for a few hundred pages does he drive it up for the kill.
But you read on, breathless because you may not live to the end of the story.
Therein lies the thrill.
Killing Floor by Lee Child
INTRODUCING JACK REACHER
The bestselling novel featuring the “wonderfully epic hero” (People) who inspired the hit film 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 Reacher 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.
