Rezension
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
"This is such a brilliantly written first novel that [Child] must be channeling Dashiell Hammett... Reacher handles the maze of clues and the criminal unfortunates with a flair that would make Sam Spade proud." - Playboy
"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. And throws in Southern atmosphere to die for. Here's to more of the same." - Jeffery Deaver, author of The Bone Collector
"Child serves up 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 arcane about currency and counterfeiting...[A] taut and tough-minded first novel...Two scenes of brutal violence in a nearby prison are tendered with exquisite precision, as is a stalking murder inside the baggage area of Atlanta airport." - 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, author of High Country
"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, author of High Water
Portrait
Lee Child wurde in den englischen Midlands geboren, studierte Jura und arbeitete dann zwanzig Jahre lang beim Fernsehen, wo er u.a. so hochklassige Thrillerserien wie 'Prime Suspect' ('Heißer Verdacht') oder 'Cracker' ('Für alle Fälle Fitz') betreute. 1995 kehrte er der Fernsehwelt und England den Rücken, zog in die USA und landete bereits mit seinem ersten Jack-Reacher-Thriller einen internationalen Bestseller. Seither fesselt er seine Fans mit immer neuen atemberaubenden Reacher-Romanen. Er wurde mit mehreren hoch dotierten Preisen ausgezeichnet, u.a. mit dem 'Anthony Award', dem renommiertesten Preis für Spannungsliteratur und 2013 mit dem CWA Diamond Dagger.
