“Never To Suffer Would Never To Have Been Blessed" - Edgar Allan Poe
Dick Hill IS Jack Reacher! Lee Child is the master of suspense with the innate ability to think like the reader only to employ an unanticipated spin.

Like the series so far, up to this book. This was a tough one to keep following... Just kind of stalled out until the last hour.
Jack Reacher is always meeting my expectations, and Dick Hill brings it to life. Another great book in my library.
I loved the first book in the Jack Reacher series (The Killing Floor), but in ECHO BURNING, the author advances a negative portrayal of white males in NW Texas. In this book the only white male who is not a racist and bigot, is Jack Reacher.
No, I love the genre. I have one more book in my library written by Lee Child, that I have not yet read; and I will listen to that one before I make a final judgment on Lee Child's books.
Dick Hill is a wonderful narrator, and I will always seek out books that he narrates.
I will be returning the book for a full refund.
I wish Mr. Child had done his research. There were just too many glaring absurdities. Armadillos protected in Texas?! Driving 60 miles to the nearest grade school? 3 hired hands who do absolutely nothing and sleep in? Ranch owners that are all evil, lazy and sit on their hands? ONE truck on a ranch? I got tired of hearing how HOT it is in Texas in the summer.The people just didn't act or re-act like most country folk would.
I cringed at the way the legal system was depicted. No police officer is going to leave a little kidnapped girl with a drifter overnight to await the return of her mother. Unbeliveable situations like this just ruined the book.
The author is obviously a city boy who never bothered to visit a working Ranch. I have loved the Reacher series but you HAVE to have a little realit yand logic in the story! This book didn't show Reacher as being extra intelligent or tough, it just made everyone else in the book lazy idiots.
Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote.
I can't think of one.
Yes! I do love the charactor and Dick Hill does an amazing job. But I would hope the author would take a little more time to do his research and develope charactors in the next book.
Just trying to figure out why Mr. Child let them cast Tom Cruise as Reacher in the movie. Another bad decision.
Probably not. I didn't like it nearly as much as the earlier Reacher or the later Reacher books. This one was a bit flat. I mean what woman would pick up someone that looked like Reacher? Not a very smart one yet Carmen picked him up and then took him home. And he being Jack and having nothing more than his toothbrush, went along with her. It was just not a great book. Sorta like Lee Child threw in stuff just to get it over with.
In this book I think my favorite character was Ellie. She seemed to have it all together while her mother and Jack just seemed to stumble along.
Yes. I have listened to many of his performances. He does this one fine but he just doesn't have the material to work with. He is a terrific narrator.
Yes. I thought it was too long and the story was not very believable. But, having said that I listened to it and liked the ending best of all. Maybe it was because that finally Jack got to investigated and slap someone around.
I rank it high
I don't know that I can. Jack Reacher novels are mysteries with a touch of military, a touch of police authority and a touch of vigilante.
Depends on the book.
Single mom of two BEAUTIFUL girls and working full time. Never enough hours in the day for myself. Loving Audible!
Just when I thought I'd figured out what was happening it took a turn! This book kept me guessing from then on. Awesome delivery and great story line with many twists.
