Killing Floor by Lee Child Book Summary

THE FIRST NOVEL IN LEE CHILD'S #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING JACK REACHER SERIES—NOW AN ORIGINAL SERIES ON PRIME VIDEO!

“From its jolting opening scene to its fiery final confrontation, Killing Floor is irresistible.”—People

Ex-military policeman Jack Reacher is a drifter. He’s just passing through Margrave, Georgia, and in less than an hour, he’s arrested for murder. Not much of a welcome. All Reacher knows is that he didn’t kill anybody. At least not here. Not lately. But he doesn’t stand a chance of convincing anyone. Not in Margrave, Georgia. Not a chance in hell.

Unexpected and fully engaging. I was not prepared to be sucked in by this series. Now, I'm on novel #4 and still sucked in. Well written cover to cover.

Engaging. I like stories that are believable and have a have a good balance of violence in the action. This book does not go overboard, but cross Jack Reacher or hurt someone he likes, and things might get a little warm.

Not bad, if.... you can suspend disbelief when it comes to implausible leaps of "logic", ridiculous coincidences, etc. still, not too bad, and the series does get better (except for Echo Burning)... but, Tom Cruise as Reacher? Seriously?

Good. Total page turner. Very interesting story plot with suspense.

Greatness. Awesome book in every way perfection on paper

Killing Floor. A friend has been reading this series over the years and when I was looking for a book to read while on vacation I decided to give the first book in the series a try, it was a very good story and kept me interested the whole way through. I'm going to download the second book Die Trying next.

Good murder mystery with a little romance. The story moves a little slowly. But if you stick with it, you are rewarded with excellent action. The love story is prominent but not the main story. The ending was somewhat disappointing. And not involving pertinent government agencies was a bad decision by the author. Jack Reacher is competent and believable. I hope you enjoy this book.

Killing Floor. Most definitely the very BEST book I have read in years! Unable to put it down, extremely well written and addicting. On the way to becoming one of my favorite authors.

Killing Floor. A friend said read it and I did, so happy I did! Will read more from this author for sure!

Maybe his best. I have read just a few of Child's books, and this is the best so far. I could not put it down. Very interesting plot. I just discovered Child recently, but he is now in my top 4 or 5 authors. I will read ALL his books.

Passable, but...... Just saw the "Jack Reacher" movie starring Tom Cruise and really enjoyed it so I thought I'd give one of his books a try. I chose the "Killing Floor", it being the first in the series, and must say the plot was well thought out if a little far-fetched. Don't worry...no spoilers ahead. The details seemed to be well researched and that is always a bonus in a fictional thriller. Some of the character development and dialogue was a bit silly though. If you read this book after having seen the Cruise movie fair warning...even though the movie is based on a later novel in the series, the Jack Reacher character being the common thread, don't look for Jack to be the mysterious, smooth, always a step ahead personality that was displayed in the film. I know that with fiction, one must always strive to suspend belief, but a reasonable plausibility must be a part of the formula and this plot really stretches that goal at times.

It’s ok. Decent story, but awful writing style.

Excellent. Our hero Reacher, does the impossible again. Great, easy, and fun to read book!

Good Read. Definitely a page-turner. Great character in Jack Reacher. Lee Child’s continues to be an author of note for this genre.

Killing Floor. I'm not a reader. For me to take the time to read it has to be informative. I have never been a pleasure reader. My brother has read the Jack Reacher series. In conversation I became interested in learning more so as to be able to talk on the subject. I had a full Friday to waste while waiting for a five o'clock appt. in another town. I went to the local bookstore with the purpose of finding the first Jack Reacher book out out. I read for a few hrs at the bookstore, ended up getting the book and read the entire weekend finishing up the 400+ pages Sunday night. It wasn't speed reading either. I was just so into the story I couldn't put it down.

Welcome to the Lee Child Jack Reacher Universe. Wow wow, wow…I became a Lee Child fan in the early 2000’s (thinking about my apostrophe placement….Killing Floor fans???….). With COVID, had to figure a systemic process. The fam and I went through Marvel (MCU)but I realized I needed my own escape back into Reacher world/Lee Child’s writing. Now I’m making my way through the LCRU (Lee Child Reacher Universe) on my iphone Apple Books. What a way to start my journey, not only through Reachers Universe but also Lee Child’s Saga.Fan I Am. Pass the next book please…

Terrible. If you have zero experience with the military, law enforcement, or the justice system you might find this book tolerable. Every time the author mentions the military he gets it completely wrong. From what MP officers do to how duty stations change. It’s as if the closest he’s ever gotten to any of his subject matter is simply reading other poorly written beach books. Badly written and completely lacking any credibility - this book is a dud.

Good, Could Be Better.. Pros: good plot, no f-words. Cons: s-words, too many shrugs.

Reacher 1. Great book and story. Reacher is 1 of a kind

Reacher child. Love the Reacher books!! It keeps you wondering over and over on each page. Reacher has a confident swag about him and a personality that makes you enjoy him as the main character. Looking forward to more Reacher books

Killing Floor. Do yourself a favor - give yourself a real treat - read Killing Floor. You deserve it!

Action from start to finish.... I loved how it started the action right away... no reading five chapters to get to the meat of the story!

Rvw. Great book

Killing Floor. Fast paced and gripping! Quite the nailbiting yarn.

Thoughts Infered. Thank you Mr. Child Jack is a new best friend. Thank you for letting me the reader try and figure out what he is planning, then watching it unfold while reading on to see if I was right. Then being pleasently suprised that I didnt have the foggiest notion, but was truley pleased all the same. Your fight sequences are spot on. The no nonsence way you cut through all the movie BS is great. People should never see a film and think that is the way to do it. Your books take out all that poetic license crap right out of it. Thank you, A new fan. Todd J

Killing Floor. I was into it from the get go. Very good reading.

Great book. Great read. A real page turner.

Killing floor. First jack reacher novel for me, I'm hooked. Read Cohen and Sanford and now childs. Like the development of this laid back but effective character. Hope jack progresses into a even more interesting guy!

Top action. Great action with enough twists and turns kept me reading past my bedtime. I will be reading more of Reacher’s adventures.

Engaging and plausible!. What else would you want from an action novel. Well done!

Decent book to get the series started. A lot of extra fill to get the book to a high page count if you ask me, but I think it did a good job of explaining who Jack is. I hope in later books Jack can show off some more of his military knowledge. Overall it's worth the read if you enjoy this genre, and hopefully the series author becomes a better author with each new title.

Wow.. Simply wonderful.

A good read. Going to try to get all jack reacher books

Awesome book. Very suspenseful.. Awesome book. Very suspenseful.

Fast paced. Great read

Great!. Still reading, about half way through. I don't read books ago ten, quite frankly I think they're boring but I can't quit turning pages on this book. It keeps you intrigued the entire time. Whether Reacher is fighting or speaking. There's never a dull moment in Reachers life.

By far best books in the series. Awesome

This Got Me HOOKED on Reacher books.. You’ll read every Reacher book there is after this one. Great, very interesting character, great, smart writing, suspenseful and thrilling all the way to the end. Best character out there, in my opinion.

Awesome. Love it. Want to read all his other books

So good. This is not my typical selection of book, but I absolutely loved it. Definitely worth reading

Waste of time. I truly enjoy the Jack Reacher series. I believe I've read them all. This one, his first, I read last. This book is implausible, so full of ridiculous conclusion, segues, false information and sophomoric mistakes, it is best left unread. Move forward in the line a few and start the series there.

Distractingly inaccurate. I don’t expect every author to be a firearms expert, but if your main protagonist has a long term military history and exceedingly large portions of the book are gun fights, you should have a basic handling on the physics involved. The author not only describes impossibilities but does so repeatedly using the exact same language. I only finished the book because it came so highly recommended, by half way I’m not sure what offended me most; the way lazy repetition abused the English language, or the insultingly ignorant way firearms and “military experience” were used.

Too Many Disgusting Scenes. I simply had to stop reading it.

Susan A. Love the Reacher series!

Would love to read but iBooks screws it up. iBooks won't allow the book to download, says "item is being modified" for days

Killing floor. Just flat out a great read

Killing Floor. Second time through with 6 years in between,just as good,if not better!

First rate action. The twists and turns in this novel are truly unpredictable. From the first chapter to the last, Jack Reacher takes you on a wonderful adventure. You could swear you are right there with him. Great reading!!!

Good but neither great nor essential. I don’t think this book provides you with insights into Reacher that are necessary for fully appreciating subsequent Reacher novels. Moreover, this book is a bit weak on character and plot development, particularly the development of Reacher, Conklin, and their relationship. Maybe I am biased by having read subsequent Reacher novels prior to this one. Or, maybe I am biased by having watched the Amazon Prime series prior to reading this book.

Dumb. This book has no literary value for anyone over age 12. It was written for fantasizing white teenage boys who think killing "bad" people is ok. No recommendation from me.

Awesome. Couldn’t put this book down great read.
