While passing through a small Georgia town, former cop Jack Reacher is arrested for murder. Jack knows that he didn't kill anybody. But he doesn't stand a chance of convincing anyone.
The Jack Reacher series is a lot different than I expected. It turns out Killing Floor is actually my style of read. I assumed these books would be more military in nature, but Killing Floor is a crime thriller that just happens to star an ex-military cop. I'm now wondering if the Stephen Hunter books are at all what I thought they were either.
Killing Floor was a very fast read. I love a good page turner so I will be sticking with this series for a while. The brutal nature of the crimes were a little over the top for me, but I don't think it was more than the average reader can handle. If you are a fan of page turning mysteries, Killing Floor is a great book to check out. I can only imagine the rest of the series will prove worthwhile as well.
7/10: Recommended Read
Have you read any of the Jack Reacher series? Have you seen the Tom Cruise movie yet? I'm a fan of Tom Cruise, but I won't have the chance to check out the movie for a while.
