This book and book 1 of the series start a little slow BUT well worth the read. The narrator is exceptional and the story is captivating.

Clara Duncan is adrift. She's always been a loner, so she never suspected that her breakup with her first love would leave her this hopeless. Clara abandons her old life and moves to a quiet, coastal New England town, where she looks forward to days of aimless wandering, like a seagull on the wind. She's convinced herself that this is good enough, until she finds an antique porcelain urn washed up on the beach - a discovery that leads her to a beautiful historian who literally falls into her lap.

I really wanted to like this book. I could not even make it through to the end. I would say the best way to describe it would be juvenile. I did enjoy the narrator but she could not save the storyline.

As DC Jennifer Knight investigates a routine stabbing in the quiet town of Haven, she is shocked by what seems like a personal message from beyond the grave. When more bodies are found, Jennifer is convinced the killings are somehow linked. What she discovers is more chilling than she could possibly imagine. The murders mirror those of the notorious Grim Reaper - from over 20 years ago. A killer her mother helped convict.

What made the experience of listening to Killing Floor the most enjoyable?

I like the character of Reacher.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I always love how detailed books get but there were moments where it was almost too detailed. It almost felt like it dragged on as if the author was trying to fill time. I understand that you want to give detail but in doing that, it hurt the pacing a bit.

Any additional comments?

Overall though I would recommend this book, It was a fun read and I really enjoyed the narrator.
