After so many months, I finally got my hands on the Jack Reacher book! Before I started on his book, I read lots of review about them and it’s really a LOVE or HATE thing. In the beginning, I thought it was kind of bored but after the first few chapters, the pace started to pick up and it is then full of action and suspense.
Killing Floor is the first Jack Reacher series book and it introduces Jack Reacher for the first time.
I am sad that Jack Reacher’s brother (Joe Reacher) died in the first book as I feel that he and Jack Reacher will make a great team! BUT what! Jack Reacher just seems invincible with all the military skills, like, will he fail to kill someone or what!?!?
In quick summary, the book begin with Jack Reacher being arrested in the café while having his dinner and was accused of murder. As Reacher is the only stranger in town and a drifter after leaving the Army with no ID, this placed him in an unfavorable position, and he bound to get to the bottom on this to clear his name.
In the midst of unfolding the truth, he found out that his brother who was working for the US Treasury Department died in the line of duty and he was almost killed in the holding cell. There is only one guy who could answer all his burning question, Hubble, who was brought in the holding cell together with him. However, Hubble is missing and the police chief and his wife are later found brutally murdered. Reacher also found out that the town shop owners are getting weekly PENSIONS (thousands of dollars).
I was blown away by how Lee Child describes the multibillion-dollar counterfeiting operation and how they go about doing the counterfeiting.
I love thriller and suspense book hence I would think Jack Reacher book suits my taste! 😀 I’m going to read his next book before deciding if I should just jump straight to his other books (as each stories exist on it’s own) or just read in order of publishing date or even read in chronological order. AGAIN, I might get bored of the writing style after a few books which might put me off from reading further, but till then, I would just continue reading the series. 😀
Book completed: October 2017
