Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Since Child began his series of gritty, involving thrillers such as Killing Floor, Die Trying and Tripwire, he has slowly built a reputation as one of the most reliable practitioners of the genre. The authenticity of the US setting in books is doubly impressive given that Child is English. That authenticity extends to the characters, perfectly realized against a menacing American landscape, and his hero Jack Reacher has inexorably become one of the most distinctive protagonists around. This time, Reacher is grimly enduring the intense heat of a Texas summer, and has decided to find what fate has to offer in other towns. He's not too concerned about who will pick him up when he hitches a ride. It turns out to be a seductive young woman, obviously wealthy, driving a Cadillac. The girl, Carmen, tells him she has a little daughter who is being pursued by sinister, unidentified men. And her abusive husband is in jail, and likely to kill her when he gets out. So it's a bad idea for Jack to travel to Carmen's lonely ranch in Echo County and get mixed up in her troubles, but (of course) that's just what he does. And before long he's up against deception, violence and some dangerous sexual situations, with crooked cops and shifty lawyers making his life even more complicated. This novel exerts its grip within pages, and Child's ex-military cop hero is as winning as ever - even if he continues to show bad judgment. Another winner from an accomplished author. (Kirkus UK)

Book Review: Echo Burning by Lee Child - Reviewed by (01 Oct 2012)

Echo burning is quite an interesting Reacher book. Its differs from the others in terms of violence and action, however it doesn’t make this books an less interesting to read.

Jack Reacher travels from place to place never being tied down. In his recent adventure he gets a lift from Carmen, who then continues to tell him a sad story about her life and family and then Reacher gets drawn into this conspiracy.

Lee Childs has a way of drawing scenes out slowly and methodically, this book it rich in analytic action and the suspense is built up, right to the last scene. This book is no less interesting than the others, it just shows another dynamic of the character and a talent of the author.
