Jack Reacher is not the kind of guy a women would pick up hitchhiking on a desert highway. He weighs about 250 and is over 6 feet. But lucky for Jack a lady in a cool car picks him up on a hot day in the Texas desert. He isn’t the first she’s picked up. But maybe she got lucky this time and he is willing to help her out of an abusive situation. Carmen Greer is married to a controlling violent husband and lives with his family near the town of Echo. He is about to be released from prison and she is desperate for some way out of the relationship. Jack is hired as a ranch hand despite having no experience with horses and as usual is in control of the situation. Another winner by Lee Child.
