Echo Burning Lee Child Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
Jack Reacher finds trouble in Texas in the fifth novel in Lee Child’s New York Times bestselling series.
Thumbing across the scorched Texas desert, Jack Reacher has nowhere to go and all the time in the world to get there. Cruising the same stretch of two-lane blacktop is Carmen Greer. For Reacher, the lift comes with a hitch. Carmen’s got a wild story to tell—all about her husband, her family secrets, and a hometown that’s purely gothic. She’s also got a plan. Reacher’s part of it. And before the sun sets, this ride could cost them both their lives.

User reviews about this book
As with most of the Reacher books I feel that it is just a guilty pleasure. The book, like all of them needs better research. The book relies on racial and regional stereotypes and not a little racist insinuation. He paints white Texans as backwards, hillbillies.
My least favorite Reacher novel
I enjoy the Jack Reacher series and try to overlook most of the flaws due to the interesting characters and storylines. I had to force myself to get to the end of this one. Not sure if Lee Child had a deadline to meet and few ideas at the time, but this is a must-pass book in the series.
Terrible depiction of Texas. The storyline is so implausible it I don’t think it would have been published without Child’s name attached to it.

Echo Burning. This was a great book, hard to put down. One word will sum it up, Awesome!
Second time was just as good as the first.
I read this one again as I have some others. I guess I'm hooked as I have read them all.
Can't wait till new book is out.
Another great one
Typically great Jack Reacher book. The most underrated author in the business.
Lee child is amazing
Couldn't put this book down. Love how all of the characters tie in together.
Excellent! After the first Reacher book--that I read without stopping--I started reading every one, and this one is just as good all the rest! What a great writer! I can hardly wait for his next one!
Ok read. Not as engaging as other Reacher novels. Good plot twists.
Lee child writes another cliff hanger, winding trails of mystery lies and deceit, excellent reading
Had some plot twists. I wasn't sure who was telling the truth till pretty much the very end of the book.
