I was arrested at Eno's diner. At twelve o'clock. I was eating eggs and drinking coffee. A late breakfast, not lunch. I was wet and tired after a long walk in heavy rain. All the way from the highway to the edge of town.
-Lee Child, Killing Floor
Ed. Comment: If you enjoy Child's Jack Reacher tales, this is the first one. If you buy the paperback edition it may also contain a preface from Child about the why, how, and who of Jack Reacher. You might also then share my utter disdain for whoever thought it was a good idea to cast Tom Cruise as the cinematic Reacher.
