Synopsis: The protagonist of the highly praised Killing Floor, former military policeman Jack Reacher is abducted on the streets of a Chicago suburb, along with a woman and a dentist, by two mysterious men. 50,000 first printing. BOMC Feat Alt.

Review: Television writer Lee Child's otherwise riveting first thriller, Killing Floor, was criticized by some reviewers because of an unconvincing coincidence at its center. Child addresses that problem in his second book--and thumbs his nose at those reviewers--by having his hero, ex-military policeman Jack Reacher, just happen to be walking by a Chicago dry cleaner when an attractive young FBI agent named Holly Johnson comes out carrying nine expensive outfits and a crutch to support her soccer-injured knee. As Holly stumbles, Reacher grabs her and her garments--which gets him kidnapped along with her by a trio of very determined badguys. "He had no problem with how he had gotten grabbed up in the first place," Child writes. "Just a freak of chance had put him alongside Holly Johnson at the exact time the snatch was going down. He was comfortable with that. He understood freak chances. Life was built out of freak chances, however much people would like to pretend otherwise." Lucky for Holly--whose father just happens to be an Army general and current head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, thus making her a tempting target for a bunch of Montana-based extremists--Reacher still has all the skills and strengths associated with his former occupation. And Child still knows how to write scenes of violent action better than virtually anyone else around. --Dick Adler

Book Description Putnam 1998 Hardcover, 1998. Condition: Very Good. Ex-military Jack Reacher returns in this breathtaking new thriller by an author praised for his 'great style and careful plotting' (The New York Times.)Critics nationwide acclaimed Killing Floor, Lee Child's suspense debut, as 'a tough, compelling thriller with characters who jump off the page' (Houston Chronicle). 'Brilliantly written', agreed Playboy. 'Striking', applauded The Chicago Tribune. 'An unsettling trip that leaves your brain buzzing and your stomach knotted', warned The Philadelphia Inquirer. 'Relentlessly suspenseful', The Denver Post concurred.In a quiet Chicago suburb, a dentist is attacked in his office parking lot and forced into the trunk of his Lexus. On a sidewalk downtown, Jack Reacher and an unknown woman are abducted in broad daylight. Wordlessly and without warning, two armed men -- confident, rehearsed, tense -- hustle them into the same sedan. Then Reacher and the woman are switched into a second vehicle and hauled away, leaving the dentist bound and gagged inside his car with the woman's abandoned possessions, two gallons of gasoline.and a burning match.Building on this harrowing start, Lee Child brings us another novel of nonstop high-speed suspense. Die Trying confirms his sizable talent and the magnetic appeal of Reacher, a hero who 'seems like someone with plenty of tales to tell' (The Philadelphia Inquirer). Fortunately for us, he is and he will. 374 pages. Seller Inventory # 1084950
