Just had a look at Lee Child, Die Trying. About 300 words per page, 550 pages of text. Knock off ten percent for white space at chapters, etc, and you get around 140,000 - 150,000 words.

Set in 10/12 Plantin, usual small paperback size, UK edition. 34 lines per page, typically 8-10 words per line where the line is full, obviously less in short sharp exchanges of dialogue. I counted 50 characters per line in a typical full line.
