    In pre-war Prague, the dreams of two young lovers are shattered when they are separated by the Nazi invasion. Then, decades later, thousands of miles away in New York, there's an inescapable glance of recognition between two strangers. Providence is giving Lenka and Josef one more chance. From the glamorous ease of life in Prague before the Occupation, to the horrors of Nazi Europe, The Lost Wife explores the power of first love, the resilience of the human spirit, and the strength of memory.

    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.

    Story
    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Jack Reacher character. Least was all the dysfunctional family drama. Just wasn't one of my favorite Child books.


    Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    Reacher


    Did Echo Burning inspire you to do anything?

    Continue to make careful life altering choices.


    Any additional comments?

    I like Lee Child's Jack Reacher novels. Reacher character is intelligent, skillful, witty, no nonsense, capable, mostly moral, and funny at times. I like his thought processes and how he figures out how to handle dangerous situations and bad guys.

    Story

    It's a gorgeous autumn day in Georgetown. The Democratic candidates for president and vice-president of the United States are dutifully glad-handing voters and the media outside a grand estate where a national-security conference has just been held, bringing together the world's greatest minds to discuss the issues that are threatening the country. It's American politicking at its best. That's when all hell breaks loose.

    Stevon says: "My first Flynn"
    "Way too much profane language"
    Overall

    While the story was still good as far as Vince Flynn quality, there was way too much profanity compared to his others. Was it really necessary? No.
