The Folio Society Does it Again With Lee Child’s ‘Killing Floor’

Written by Lee Child
Illustrated by Oliver Barrett
Introduced by Malcolm Gladwell
Published by The Folio Society

 

With over two dozen novels and another twenty or so novellas and short stories, Lee Child’s Jack Reacher has found a rabid audience of fans, selling over 100 million copies.

Not only Child’s debut novel, but also the first appearance of Reacher, Killing Floor has been reissued in this amazing edition which features illustrations for the very first time.  Noted columnist and ‘Global Thinker’ Malcolm Gladwell pens the introduction.

In Killing Floor,Jack Reacher jumps off a bus and walks fourteen miles down a country road into Margrave, Georgia. An arbitrary decision he’s about to regret.

Reacher is the only stranger in town on the day they have had their first homicide in thirty years. The cops arrest Reacher and the police chief turns eyewitness to place him at the scene.

As nasty secrets leak out, and the body count mounts, one thing is for sure: they picked the wrong guy to take the fall.

A worldwide bestseller and adapted for the big screen twice, Lee Child’s Jack Reacher thrillers are relentlessly addictive, delivering tightly plotted rollercoasters of action and suspense. Child is one of the most popular authors on the planet, and he has won fans from every part of the literary field. Susan Hill describes him as the ‘best thriller writer on the planet’ and Ken Follet has declared his hero Reacher: ‘today’s James Bond’. With the character known for his imposing physical presence and lethal efficiency in life-or-death situations, illustrator Oliver Barrett places Reacher at the heart of most of the illustrations, the lynchpin around which the bloody action revolves.

This amazing edition is bound in screen-printed cloth and was set in Sabon with Bureau Grot as display.  The 400 page edition includes an integrated black & white title page spread, and 7 full page color illustrations.

A must-have volume for fans of the genre, Killing Floor is a wonderful addition to your home library, or an ideal gift for any Lee Child fan.
