In Echo Burning, Reacher is hitching through the heat of West Texas and getting desperate for a ride. At six-five, close to two hundred fifty pounds, scruffy and unshaven, he is nobody's idea of a low-risk passenger.
But luck arrives in a huge white Cadillac with its air-conditioning on high. The driver is Carmen Greer. She's a good-looking young woman with a beautiful little girl... and she has quite a story to tell. She married into the wrong family. They're a bitter and miserly clan, and they've made her life hell. Now her monster of a husband is due out of prison. She needs help, and she needs it now.

He dug a bullet out of the box and held it up. "This thing is tiny. And slow. The pointy part is the bullet, and the rest of it is the powder in the shell case. Not a very big bullet, and not very much powder behind it. So it's not necessarily going to do a lot of damage. Worse than a bee sting, but one shot isn't going to be enough. So you need to get real close, and you need to keep on pulling the trigger until the gun is empty."
