Journey, Family relations
finding Indian trail
only 1, I thought this story was more well rounded
sitting on edge , but I trust Joe to come thru. Glad he finally learned to shoot, or was that just luck.
I enjoy the family and the country he travels.
My mom taught me to read when i was 3 and i've been reading ever since. I LOVE to read and now 'listen' to books.
I like this series a lot but can't always stomach how kind and trusting the man is. He is a good man and tries to believe in people but surely he didn't make it to the age he is with a wife and 3 children, a hopeless set of parents and a law enforcement job without learning SOMETHING about human nature!! I will continue reading them and I will re-read them over time but I sure hope he grows a set in the meantime!!
I'm a big fan of Joe Pickett. You end up liking the guy so much you want to scream when you see him stumbling into a trap. It's an interesting twist that the hero ends up liking a guy he thought he'd hate. CJ Box has created the perfect sociopathic antagonist. The ending is contrived in the extreme but the book won a bunch of awards so who am I to judge?
The villain is relentless and totally without mercy.
Chandler is a master of voices, giving the right touch to all the characters.
When Joe Pickett starts liking Stuey, an old boyfriend of his wife.
One of the best of the series.
The way CJ writes you can see everything that is happening, his descriptions of the landscape are so easy to see in your head
The actual chase on Savage Run, edge of your seat!
I just love the Joe Picket character. I force myself to only listen on my way to work or else I would have all of the books listened to in a month,
Tell us about yourself!
Good old boy ranchers hire hitmen to silence ecoterrorists. Joe Pickett's investigation into poaching pulls him into the "war" and he ends up running for his life.
I do enjoy the series' western setting and mindset. It's a nice break from a big city with rampant crimes and hardened detectives. I will continue on to the next book.
David Chandler's narration is well suited to these books.
Joe does it again. Best thing about Joe is that he's not perfect. He is hopelessly honest about his failures, which dog him from book to book, just as OURS do...
This series always keeps your interest always on every book. I look forward to each book to listen to. The reader is also very good. You never wonder who is performing as.
I didn't feel like this was as good as the first one, but still an enjoyable read. Some surprises, but if the entire series is going to be environmentalists vs. ranchers, I'm not sure I'll continue.
