Publisher's Summary

All is not well in Margrave, Georgia.

The sleepy, forgotten town hasn't seen a crime in decades, but within the span of three days it witnesses events that leave everyone stunned. An unidentified man is found beaten and shot to death on a lonely country road. The police chief and his wife are butchered on a quiet Sunday morning. Then a bank executive disappears from his home, leaving his keys on the table and his wife frozen with fear.

The easiest suspect is Jack Reacher - an outsider, a man just passing through. But Reacher is not just any drifter. He is a tough ex-military policeman, trained to think fast and act faster. He has lived with and hunted the worst: the hard men of the American military gone bad.

Don't miss any of Jack Reacher's adventures.

    "The First of Many"

    This might be hard to believe, but this is my first Jack Reacher adventure and it was great. I listen to book after book and get a little jaded, but loved this book. Detailed ...but not too detailed if you know what I mean. Great and exciting read. I am going to read a lot more of Jack Reeeacher and hope that I continue to be as enthralled with the character as I was in this one.

    "Good story...with one major flaw."

    Killing Floor got me hooked on the Reacher series; but after a second listening following completion of the entire series, I noticed Reacher as a person was a bit different from later books. Later books give us a more 'hardline' Reacher, one who is quite a more stoic and analytical. The first Reacher spends a half hour singing blues songs while on surveillance and dreaming about settling down with one of the main characters.

    Overall a good story and the plot is interesting enough and the villains devious enough to keep me interested even after the second go-round. My biggest problem is the inaccuracies in geography. While I forgive the made up town of Margrave and its location on the map, the completely false and inaccurate layout and description of the Atlanta Airport - a key scene in pushing Reacher "over the edge" emotionally - really bugs me. It IS, after all, the "busiest airport in the world", so it's hard for me to believe that the author was completely unaware of the layout of ATL. What Child described just doesn't exist and as creative as the guy is, he surely could have devised a way for the same event to happen in a more realistic setting. From what I have seen, Child takes great pains to do research on weaponry since Reacher is from a military background. Why not do just a little BASIC research into a major landmark, one that tens of millions of folks have to navigate every year. I'm fine with fabricating a small town, not fine with completely reinventing a place that probably 90% of the readers of the book have had some first-hand experience with.

    "Excellent"

    This was the first Jack Reeder novel I listened to and I really enjoyed it. Very edge of your seat and fast paced.

    "Good, if you're in the mood for this genre"

    Good. I liked the characters, maybe a bit too long at end, but you will still want to finish

    "A Great Read"

    I don't generally like this genre, but I thought Killing Floor was a fantastic book. It caught my interest from the very beginning and I couldn't resist listening at every possible moment. The narrator did a great job. A GREAT BOOK!

    "Good listen!"

    Good thriller with very interesting events and facts that keep you wanting to listen to more. The voice of the reader is very good and does an excellent job.

    "Reecher would shoot himself."

    If Reecher (the main character) had to read this drivel he would kill himself. This one stinks.

    "Lee Child Book Killing Floor"

    I enjoyed listening to this one. Reminds me of the old radio shows. The main character is fun and serious at the same time. Only problem I have is with the "she said. he said, I said" dialoge. Can do with that since you can understand who is saying what to whom. It's a little annoying but once you get passed that the story line has good. The only reason I am giving this a 4 star is that "said" when Reicher is talking.

    "There are many better books out there."

    I had a hard time getting through this. It was predictable, full of stereotypes and contained violent scenes that were excessive and added little, if anything of value, to the story. I don't usually write negative reviews and this was my first Lee Child book so I have no basis for comparison with this author's other books. My favorite mystery/thriller writer is probably Henning Mankell and this is not even close to that quality. Obviously other people liked this book a lot so I am not sure why it didn't work for me but it didn't.
