      Killing Floor
Ex military policeman Jack Reacher is a drifter He s just passing through Margrave, Georgia, and in less than an hour, he s arrested for murder Not much of a welcome All Jack knows is that he didn t kill anybody At least not here Not lately But he doesn t stand a chance of convincing anyone not in Margrave, Georgia Not a chance in hell.
