"Killing Floor," released in 1997, is the debut novel in the "Jack Reacher" series. In the book, Reacher decides to visit Margrave, Georgia, but is soon arrested for a murder he didn't commit. A local detective and a female police officer attempt to help him prove his innocence. In the process, the three discover illegal activities taking place in Margrave.

"The Enemy" was released in 2004 and is the eighth book in the series. The book is a prequel to "Killing Floor," taking place eight years before the events in that book. While on duty in North Carolina, Reacher receives a call about a dead soldier. However, this soldier is a general who should have been in Europe, and Reacher soon discovers the general's wife is also dead.

"One Shot," released in 2005, is the ninth book in the series. In a small Indiana town, five people are killed by a gunman, and the evidence indicates a former Army sniper is the killer. The suspect requests Reacher, who comes to town to investigate the case. This book was adapted to the 2012 film "Jack Reacher," starring Tom Cruise as Reacher.
