Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Contains a new foreword written and read by Philip Pullman.

Killing Floor is the first book in the phenomenal best-selling Jack Reacher series by Lee Child. It introduces Reacher for the first time, as the tough ex-military cop of no fixed abode. Trained to think fast and act faster, he is the perfect action hero for when times get tough.

Margrave is a no-account little town in Georgia. Jack Reacher steps off a bus and walks 14 miles in the rain to reach it, in search of a dead guitar player.

But Margrave has just had its first homicide in 30 years. And Reacher is the only stranger in town. He seems the obvious fall guy. As the body count mounts, only one thing is for sure: they picked the wrong guy to frame for murder.

Now a major Prime TV series starring Alan Ritchson.

Although the Jack Reacher novels can be listened to in any order, Killing Floor is the first book in the internationally popular series.

Critic reviews

"Races along, spattering blood and body parts on the way." (Sunday Telegraph)

"These books are absolutely addictive. When you pick them up you can't put them down." (George R.R. Martin)

"All [Reacher thrillers] are ripping yarns, but since this is the first, it seems the logical place to start." (Stephen King)

Lee child's & Jeff Harding great combination

The book has all the Jack Reacher moments readers of Lee Childs novels love. Jeff Harding tops it off with all the voices and the combination brings the charicter and the story to life.

James Bond without the cheese

This is a gritty and well constructed action read that has a good enough story line to keep you interested throughout.

**** FANTASTIC ****

What a great book, tense, thrilling and heart throbbing. Lee Childs Jack Reacher is amazing. This book is made even more amazing by the narrator Jeff Harding, who’s tone and hard hitting delivery is wonderful.

Seriously good stuff

Don't worry you'll soon forget that nightmarish image of tiny Tom Cruise playing Reacher. This narrator is that good that he completely obliterates it from your mind and you can relax and enjoy a really good story with loads of tension and a great plot with believable characters. Thoroughly recommended.

worth a go, seriously

Excellent book, the narrator was good! although I must agree with orher reviews, the "I said" "he said" "she said" wasn't needed, great book though!
