Rezensionen
Praise for Killing Floor
A People Magazine Page-Turner
A Barry Award winner
An Anthony Award winner

All [Jack Reacher novels] are ripping yarns, but.... Killing Floor wins awards for Best Corrupt Southern Town in a Summer Novel and Best Exploding Warehouse. Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly

Combines high suspense with almost nonstop action. Reacher is a wonderfully epic hero: tough, taciturn, yet vulnerable. People

Great style and careful plotting. The violence is brutal depicted with the kind of detail that builds dread and suspense. The New York Times

A complex thriller with layer upon layer of mystery and violence and intrigue A long unsettling trip that leaves your brain buzzing and your stomach knotted. The author pens nightmarish images as casually as an ordinary writer would dot an i or cross a t . The Philadelphia Inquirer

A tough, compelling thriller with characters who jump off the page. Houston Chronicle

Violent and visceral A cut above Reacher is as tough as he is resourceful. An exciting, edge-of-the-chair account. Compelling and relentlessly suspenseful. The Denver Post

Some novelists can write top-notch action and some can create compelling mysteries, yet it s rare to find both of those skills displayed in a single book. Lee Child s Killing Floor is one of them. But not content with writing a rip-roaring thriller, Child also gives us one of the truly memorable tough-guy heroes in recent fiction: Jack Reacher. Jeffery Deaver

A big, rangy plot, menace as palpable as a ticking bomb, and enough battered corpses to make an undertaker grin. Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Beautifully detailed action scenes and fascinating arcana about currency and counterfeiting [A] taut and tough-minded first novel. Publishers Weekly

I love the larger-than-life hero, Jack Reacher. I grew up a fan of John Wayne s and Clint Eastwood s movies, and it s great to see a man of their stature back in business. Lee Child grabs you with the first line and never loosens his grip. Killing Floor is a terrific ride. Nevada Barr

This is a kick-ass first novel by the very talented Lee Child. Hero Jack Reacher has presence and dimension a man you definitely want on your side. Child has a sure touch and a strong voice. Definitely a talent to watch. Lynn S. Hightower
