Apart from that the whole of the floor was one big open space, with sixteen beds facing each other eight to a side, with simple iron frames and thin striped mattresses and bedside cabinets and footlockers. The two beds nearest the bathroom were occupied. Each had a small, wiry man lying half-dressed on top of the sheets. Both men wore blue jeans and fancy tooled boots and no shirts

Jack Reacher, hailed as "a wonderfully epic hero" by People, confronts Texan hatred and hidden crimes in this superb new thriller. Ex-military cop Jack Reacher returns in this latest in the award-winning series critics call "spectacular" (The Seattle Times), "relentless" (Denver Post), and "perfect" (The New York Times Book Review). Reacher is hitching through the heat of West Texas and getting desperate for a ride. The last thing he's worried about is exactly who picks him up. She's called Carmen. She's a good-looking young woman, she has a beautiful little girl . . .and she has married into the wrong family. They're called the Greers. They're a bitter and miserly clan, and they've made her life a living hell. Worse, her monster of a husband is soon due out of prison. So she needs protection, and she needs it now. Lawyers can't help. Cops can't be trusted. So Reacher goes home with her to the lonely ranch where nothing is as it seems, and where evil swirls around them like dust in a storm. Within days, Carmen's husband is dead - and simmering secrets send Echo, Texas, up in flames.
Reviews about Echo Burning (Jack Reacher, No. 5) (7):
This is my least favorite Reacher story. I totally disliked the heroine, Carmen...a tacky, tacky piece of work. I should have felt some sympathy for her, but I never did. I was surprised, shocked actually, that Reacher did. Carmen's plotting was so bizarre that it was laughable. Really. The main plot that wasn't evident until fairly late on the book was just as bad. The author, as usual, got the roads right, as I remember them, and the general topography. And the heat. He described that beautifully and accurately. But, he got most other things about Texas wrong. However, the end was pretty satisfying, which is why I gave this 3 stars instead of 2. If you're a Texan, I think you will hate this book, so beware. If you're from the north and have preconceived notions about Texas, you'll probably enjoy it.

Skip it! It is not like the other books. I actually gave up on it, which I didn't think would happen with a Reacher boook. Reacher is basically on a giant farm in the middle of nowhere. Why is he there you ask? Oh, because some frantic and paranoid woman wants him to kill her husband because he's abusive. The pacing is unusually slow for Lee Child. The side characters are stereotypical rednecks.

The book starts off with Reacher in a bar, he hits a guy he didn't know was a cop. Then, he wants to get out of dodge to not be holed up in a cell. That's a much more interesting premise than what the book is actually about.
I had been working my way through the Jack Reacher series sequentially, but had skipped over Echo Burning based on the blurb description of the storyline. Having reached the end of the line, I journeyed back to Echo and read it. My initial reluctance was justified. This is perhaps the weakest story of a series filled with nuanced, dynamic stories. Our hero is picked up hitchhiking in West Texas by a woman with a disturbing story to tell. Reacher, naturally, becomes entangled, his faith in the woman's story eventually challenged and tested. The story unfolds at a sedate pace before finally resolving itself in a heavily foreshadowed rain storm.

Let me add that Echo has maybe the funniest line in the series, when Reacher discovers a handgun in the possession of a young, storefront attorney he encounters. He speculates that Mom and Dad bought her the gun, adding that they might have included a machine gun and a grenade launcher given the environment in which she is working.

That aside, the plot twist that reveals itself at the end struggles to rationalize itself, given how the characters are introduced and sketched out. In the best thriller fiction, the bad guy often doesn't reveal himself until the end and you don't see it coming. In this one, you could see it coming a mile away like a West Texas dust storm. The climactic showdown in the Texas badlands is rather difficult to follow even with Child's prodigious talents at painting a crucial scene. The action was overly complex and difficult to follow. Oh, and if you're looking forward to Reacher bedding one of the female characters... well, don't get your hopes up.

If, like me, you are making your way chronologically through the Reacher series, skip over Echo Burning to Reacher #6 and enjoy one of the great literary fiction series ever published.
Lee Child does know how to write Jack Reacher. Echo Burning is proof of that. Out of the first five books, this is my least favorite, and the “Ugly” will tell you why. Here we go.

The Ugly: I’ve lived in Texas for three years at one point in my military career. I drove around the state from time to time. I enjoyed the drives. The way Mr. Child depicted how the ranch house was so far away from the rest of civilization is not that farfetched, but it wouldn’t be over an hour from any town. And a child wouldn’t ride the bus for over an hour to school. Maybe if the book was set before the early ’90’s it would have made a bit more sense, but not in the early 2000’s.

The Bad: It was a hard time deciding which one I wanted to put as the “Ugly” or the “Bad.” They both pretty horrendous. There were way too many twist in turns in this conspiracy that you don’t even find out is happening until two hundred pages in. There was a lot of filler to this story just to get pages in the book.

The Good: Even though there was a lot of filler, the main story was still quite good once you find out what is going on. Jack Reacher is one of the best literary history. The whole thing about him accidentally falling into this conspiracy actually did make a lot sense. If you could only get past the two hundred pages of filler.

Final Thoughts: It was bound to happen. I didn’t like this one as much as the others. Even the greatest authors of all time wrote some bad stories.
