Reacher's sympathetic, but he's not crazy. Nonetheless, he allows himself to be drawn into beautiful Carmen Greer's orbit, which ought to teach a guy not to hitchhike. Agreeing to protect her from the husband who's about to be released from jail and, according to Carmen, who's about to pay her back for tipping off the authorities to the tax fraud that landed him in prison, Reacher moves into the bunkhouse of the Echo, Texas, ranch that's owned by the bigoted, bitter, but powerful Greer family, which despises Carmen because she's Mexican and tolerates her only because she's Sloop Greer's wife and the mother of his child. The expected bloodshed ensues, but it's Sloop, not Carmen, who ends up with a bullet in his head. Reacher's convinced that Carmen acted in self-defense, even after other evidence comes to light that suggests there's more--and less--to her unhappy tale than even her own lawyer believes. This is the best Jack Reacher yet, smart, stylish, and convincing. If it's your first encounter with Child's work, be sure to check out his backlist--Running Blind, Tripwire, etc. --Jane Adams --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The story line was fine but a lot of the narrative was boring. I think it was written with the intention of making it a movie. Read morePublished 6 hours ago by Emily6248
Another good book though the drives though Texas got long as usual. I think Reacher is clairvoyant most of the time.Published 3 days ago by dhinman
It's worth the read.
Good ole boys, mystery, suspense and things are never as they seem.

Pecos, Tx is in Reeves County.
As far a Reacher story, it's okay, but not near as good as some of the others.
Another cliff hanger with Reacher. Hold on for another great ride with lots is twists and turns along the way.Published 6 days ago by randy dyer
