Description - Echo Burning: (Jack Reacher 5) by Lee Child
Hitching rides is an unreliable mode of transport. In temperatures of over a hundred degrees, you're lucky if a driver will open the door of his airconditioned car long enough to let you slide you in. That's Jack Reacher's conclusion. He's adrift in the fearsome heat of a Texas summer, and he needs to keep moving through the wide open vastness, like a shark in the water. The last thing he's worried about is exactly who picks him up. He never expected it to be somebody like Carmen. She's alone, driving a Cadillac. She's beautiful, young and rich. She has a little girl who is being watched by unseen observers. And a husband who is in jail. Who will beat her senseless when he comes out. If he doesn't kill her first. Reacher is no stranger to trouble. And at Carmen's remote ranch in Echo County there is plenty of it: lies and prejudice, hatred and murder. Reacher can never resist a lady in distress. Her family is hostile. The cops can't be trusted. The lawyers won't help. If Reacher can't set things straight, who can?

Book Review: Echo Burning: (Jack Reacher 5) by Lee Child - Reviewed by Sheepcoate (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.
