"Grabs hold with the first page...  This is pulse-pounding suspense."
- Arizona Daily Star

Jack Reacher's anonymity in Key West is shattered by the appearance of a private investigator who's come to town looking for him.  But only hours after his arrival, the stranger is murdered.  Retracing the Pl's cold trail back to New York City, Reacher is compelled to find out who was looking for him and why.  He never expected the reasons to be so personal, so dangerous, and so very twisted.

"A stylistic thriller as complex and disturbing as its hero."
- Stephen White

"A bang-up finale...  Makes the reader sit back and gasp."
- The Denver Post

"Gives new meaning to what a page-turner should be."
- Michael Connelly

Notes and Comments:



Lee Child  
Birth: 29 Oct 1954 Coventry, West Midlands, England, UK

Lee Child was born October 29th, 1954 in Coventry, England, but spent his formative years in the nearby city of Birmingham. By coincidence he won a scholarship to the same high school that JRR Tolkien had attended. He went to law school in Sheffield, England, and after part-time work in the theater he joined Granada Television in Manchester for what turned out to be an eighteen-year career as a presentation director during British TV's "golden age." During his tenure his company made Brideshead Revisited, The Jewel in the Crown, Prime Suspect, and Cracker. But he was fired in 1995 at the age of 40 as a result of corporate restructuring. Always a voracious reader, he decided to see an opportunity where others might have seen a crisis and bought six dollars' worth of paper and pencils and sat down to write a book, Killing Floor, the first in the Jack Reacher series.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
