It had me at Page One. This is another great Jack Reacher and I am obsessed with them. The character is moral, strong, true, good but ready to take on evil and destroy it. Not your typical tough guy, Jack Reacher doesn't offend my sensibilities.

I haven't read these books in any given order and I don't think it matters since the plots don't carry over or leave one hanging. That's a gripe I have with other of series. I've read about five of the Reacher novels and each time I have a hard time putting the guy aw...
I haven't read these books in any given order and I don't think it matters since the plots don't carry over or leave one hanging. That's a gripe I have with other of series. I've read about five of the Reacher novels and each time I have a hard time putting the guy away. I want to read another and another just to be around him ... so to speak. He's a unique character - a drifter I can admire. Echo Burning is about a young, possibly battered married woman in trouble in a small town where the law may as well not exist until she finds Jack Reacher hitch-hiking as usual away to "anywhere". One is quickly led all over Texas from one interesting character to another until the mystery is solved. I can usually figure out who-done-it before the end of a novel but not these. It's always a surprise. Reacher never does what the reader has come to expect from these types of novels. He doesn't sleep with her just to get some. His language is clean - he's obviously educated, even refined in his own way. An ex-military cop, Reacher has the moves that take out the bad guys fast. He describes what he looks for and what to avoid. It's interesting to see how he "reads" people and it's all so true-to-life. Warning: don't start reading just before bed-time!

    avbelow average

    Author uses too many descriptive words (filler) in too many sections of book. An eay book to skip through.
