BOOK CLUB | 25 Years of Killing Floor

We know it’s not quite October yet, but what better way to get ready for the spooky season than celebrating one of the most iconic crime thriller characters ever?

The very first book by number one bestseller Lee Child, which introduced his iconic character Jack Reacher has celebrated its 25th anniversary.

“This was the first Jack Reacher novel, and with its lean, spare prose, it has one of the most intriguing heroes of our times and displays a gift for explosive drama,” said the Daily Express.

Been so long that you can’t quite remember how it all started?

Jack Reacher jumps off a bus and walks fourteen miles down a country road into Margrave, Georgia. An arbitrary decision he is about to regret.

Reacher is the only stranger in town on the day they have had their first homicide in thirty years. The cops arrest Reacher, and the police chief turns eyewitnesses to place him at the scene., As nasty secrets leak out and the body count mounts, one this is for sure.

They picked the wrong guy to take the fall.

Lee Child is now one of the world’s leading thriller writers. Born in Coventry and raised in Birmingham, he now lives in New York. It is said a novel featuring Jack Reacher is sold somewhere in the world every nine seconds, so that is definitely something worth celebrating.
