Killing Floor is the debut novel of the Jack Reacher series, introducing ex-military police major Jack Reacher. Immediately, we learn that Jack is a loner with a past. Despite keeping to himself, the local sheriff has Jack arrested in Margrave's diner shortly after his arrival in town, for the murder of his own brother Joe.

Killing Floor

A classic thriller twist! It doesn't look good for Jack, but Jack convinces the female detective working his case, Roscoe, Β that he is innocent. Another classic twist β€”a twofer reallyβ€” both underdog against the world and a beautiful woman to stand by his side. I'm sure you know how this ends.
