Teaser Tuesday: Killing Floor by Lee Child

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Long experience had taught me that complete silence was the best way. Say something and it can be misheard. Misunderstood. Misinterpreted. It can get you convicted. It can get you killed. Silence upsets the arresting officer. He has to tell you silence is your right but he hates it if you exercise that right. I was being arrested for murder. But I said nothing.
This week I pulled Killing Floor by Lee Child from my TBR mountain. I have never read any of the Jack Reacher books. I was inspired to add this one to my stack when the Tom Cruise movie came out and I read reviews that indicated how little Cruise looked like Jack Reacher. Devoted fans were outraged and I was intrigued. I didn't go see the movie but I became curious about the books.

Here is the description:
When Jack Reacher suddenly decides to ask a Greyhound bus driver to let him off near the town of Margrave, Georgia, he thinks it's because his brother once mentioned that the famed blues guitarist Blind Blake died there. But it doesn't take long for the footloose ex-military policeman to discover that there are plenty of strange--and very dangerous--things going on behind Margrave's manicured lawns and clean streets that demand his attention. This first thriller by a former television writer features some of the best-written scenes of action in recent memory, a crash course in currency and counterfeiting, and a hero who is just begging to be called on for an encore. 


  1. I am definitely curious about the books...and probably won't see the movie, since Tom Cruise is not a favorite of mine...LOL.

    Enjoy the book! Thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. Intriguing teaser, I haven't read any of the Jack Reacher books either but maybe I should!

  3. This is a series I want to read as well..there are so many series out there that I need to start..lol. Also all the Cruise bashing for his role as Jack Reacher made me even more curious..lol. I watched the movie and it was okay so I know the book has got to be better. :)

  4. I'm curious about this series! Another fabulous teaser -- thanks so much for sharing and for stopping by. Happy Reading :)

  5. That sounds intriguing! I listened to an audio book by that author once and it was pretty good.

  6. Hmmm...I wonder if I should try this series. I've heard so much about this Reacher character.
