Killing Floor is the first book in the internationally popular Jack Reacher series. It presents Reacher for the first time, as the tough ex-military cop of no fixed abode: a righter of wrongs, the perfect action hero.

'THE KILLING FLOOR' is a dynamic, intricate thriller which literally keeps you turning the pages. The character of Jack Reacher is very strong; deceptively simply written and wholly engaging.

8 out of 10

I decided to start this book as I want to send it on to someone else as a wishlist RABCK. I wasn't really expecting much to be honest, even though I've heard lots of good things about the Jack Reacher books from friends. I was pleasantly surprised and managed to finish it very quickly (a train trip to London really helped!). It was a fantastic suspense thriller and I'd forgotten how much I love this type of book. I'll be looking out for the next book in the series now! Thanks kiwiinengland for sending to me.

What a lovely surprise. Had been away with family this weekend, came back thoroughly exhausted to a familiar sized package. Oh great a book, but even better when I opened it to find a wishlist book.

Thanks bradgirl and team Scottie Dog. I look forward to starting this book and getting engrossed in to the Jack Reacher series. :)

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Started reading this book today and think I will really enjoy this series :)

I have been sent another copy for the ABC International Roundabout I entered and I have a Thriller Bookbox with me to send out soon, so I thought I'd get this copy on it's way again. Its now in the bookbox and will be posted next week to HerbertLoopy.

Funnily enough both copies of the book were originally set on their way by KiwiinEngland

Fits in with pinkoeria's E-less challenge too.

Took this out of HerbertLooby's Thriller Bookbox. Now to be fair I've already read it (I have a such a crush on Jack Reacher, enough said) but as it's a WBN book I've taken it out as I'd like to have a hand in keeping it moving....hope nobody objects :o)

Here's what I thought of it:
Margrave is a no-account little town in Georgia. Jack Reacher jumps off a bus and walks fourteen miles in the rain, just passing through. An arbitrary decision, a tribute to a guitar player who died there decades before. But Margrave has just had its first homicide in thirty years.....& Reacher is the only stranger in town - needless to say the murder is pinned on him!

But as those of us who've met Reacher before know they picked the wrong guy to take the fall...

This is the first book in the Reacher series but the third that I've read. Like the others it's a cracking read & only differs from the other two in that it's written in the first person rather than the third.

8 out of 10

Grabbed this book from a bookshelf at my local train station (Todmorden) at the start of a train trip to Avignon, as I hadn't packed anything to read on holiday. I could have left it in a French Hotel in deepest Provence, on a bench at Lille or Paris TGV, or at Euston train station on the way home...but I guess I wasn't brave enough - I thought it might not find a new home! Instead I'll take it back to the bookshelf at Todmorden and maybe it can take another trip to the continent sometime.
Never tried a Lee Childs book before but it was the perfect holiday read and since coming back I've re-acquainted myself with the genre and dusted down some other thrillers on my bookshelf and re-read them...
