Love my family...along with guitars, road bikes, cameras, and a good book!
This is my first reading of the Joe Pickett series, obviously, but not my first C.J. Box book. I have enjoyed Box's writings that I have read thus far. This book was a wonderful book, and I look forward to the rest of the series. Great character development, as I found myself really rooting for the protagonist and his family quite early on. Very well thought out plot, and the pacing of the book was fantastic! I never felt a lull or lagging time in the story at all. David Chandler did a great job with the narration, as well. Great book!

Slow start, but good ending. Seem to be a lot of people in this story, that were not very bright.
Just started listening to this series again and am enjoying just as much as I did the first time through. C.J. Box does a great job of introducing these characters in this book, and an even better job developing them throughout the series.

The first novel of a series featuring Joe Pickett, a Wyoming game warden who get involved in a mystery with poachers, endangered species, big oil and some really nefarious characters. The setting is cool; Wyoming wilderness, family man, mystery. A tale of good guys gone bad. I especially liked the 4 year old girl, who acted like one.Think I'll have another book, thank you.
Great voice. Really a good listen. I'll definitely recommend it. I've always read CJ Box 's books. Audio is better
Is it great literature? Of course not. But it is a great listen. I love the Cork O'Conner series by William Kent Kruger and was so sad to finish all of them. This is filling their place. It helps a lot that David Chandler also narrates the Joe Pickett series. I love his voice. He is the perfect narrator for this genre.
Unusual murder mystery. Interesting about family, friendship, doing right versus getting along and the politics of the woods. The viewpoint shifts among the characters including a young girl and it is very believable.

CJ Box did it again. A great story to get lost in. I can't wait to hear the next Joe Pickett adventure.
Could have been so much better. Too much telling and not enough showing. Dialogue really poor.
