Book 56 for 2010

KIlling Floor by Lee Child. 525 pages

Next book finished should have been Under the Dome by Stephen King, but I misplaced it last week and picked this up in the meantime and frankly, by the time I found UTD again, this had gripped me much more.

Jack Reacher arrives in the Georgia town of Margrave, just in time to be arrested  for the town's first murder in thirty years. It's not long before it becomes clear that something is very wrong in Margrave - and that it affects Reacher very closely indeed.

My sister has been recommending this series to me for a while now, so when I spotted the first one in Sainsbury's on their 2 for £7 offer, I bought it (along with UTD).  It's a very well-plotted thriller/mystery with a first person narrator and I liked it a lot. Not for the squeamish though - there are some very nasty and quite explicit scenes of torture and death.  I found some of them a little much, but the plot and the characters were enough to get me past them and I shall be looking for the next book in the series.
