When Jack Reacher suddenly decides to ask a Greyhound bus driver to let him off near the town of Margrave, Georgia, he thinks it's because his brother once mentioned that the famed blues guitarist Blind Blake died there. But it doesn't take long for the footloose ex-military policeman to discover that there are plenty of strange--and very dangerous--things going on behind Margrave's manicured lawns and clean streets that demand his attention. This first thriller by a former television writer features some of the best-written scenes of action in recent memory, a crash course in currency and counterfeiting, and a hero who is just begging to be called on for an encore.
Killing Floor was unexpected. A murder mystery, and how there'd be some commentary about some random subject, and then it'd be linked to the point at hand, it was just great!
I loved Jack, he was just different, off-kilter, and just an all around quirky guy who was enjoyable to read about. I loved him with her, and the action scenes, they were detailed, gritty, and believable, and so descriptive! I felt like I was in a little bubble right off to the side that sucked in all the turmoil and movement and feelings! It was just amazing!
Killing Floor was just a great read, and if you like murder mysteries, try this one out!
