(Daily Mail) Jack Reacher, adrift in the hellish heat of a Texas summer. Looking for a lift through the vast empty landscape. A woman stops, and offers a ride. She is young, rich and beautiful.

She is entangled in a web of lies and prejudice, hatred and murder. Jack Reacher never could resist a lady in distress. Although the Jack Reacher novels can be read in any order, Echo Burning is 5th in the series.
