This is no cruisy ride
KILLING FLOOR by Lee Child Bantam Books
HAVE you heard the hype about Tom Cruise staring as Jack Reacher from Lee Child’s internationally best- selling series?
No, I hadn’t either, so with curiosity getting the better of me, I went in on the ground level.
Killing Floor is the first in the Jack Reacher series about a drifter, ex- military cop and a righter of wrongs or so it seems. So you’d best buckle in because Lee Child is about to take you on a hell of a ride.
It’s almost non- stop action as he hops off a bus in a small town looking for a blues legend and ends up being arrested.
From there the tale twists and turns as he gets pulled in deeper and darker. There’s the mystery of a lost brother, who uncovered another mystery, and while the body count climbs, Jack Reacher keeps on.
It’s a logical place to start and at one stage I wearied of action and just wanted a conclusion, but if you like your action thrillers like Clive Cussler or David Baldacci, I think any Lee Child novel would be a great place to start.
