Opening paragraphs..................

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.
