Publisher's Summary

A 12-year-old girl and her younger brother go on the run in the woods of northern Idaho, pursued by four men they have just watched commit murder - four men who know exactly who the children are and where their desperate mother is waiting patiently by the phone for news of her children's fate. In a ranching community increasingly populated by L.A. transplants living in gaudy McMansions, the kids soon find they don't know whom they can trust among the hundreds of retired Southern California cops who've given the area its nickname: "Blue Heaven".

This program also includes a sneak peak of the first chapter of C.J. Box’s newest novel BACK OF BEYOND.

What the Critics Say

"Blue Heaven is one of the best thrillers of the year, and it kept me up most of the night, the way few books have ever done. C. J. Box owes me a night's sleep!" (Tess Gerritsen)

    Story
    "Great Suspense from the Start!"

    Blue Heaven was exciting and fast paced from the moment i began the novel. The characters come alive and pull the reader into the story. Sometimes I had a sneaking suspicion regarding what was about to happen - but other times i was completely shocked and caught myself yelling out loud in suprise! I couldn't turn off my ipod as i just had to know what was going to happen next. There are no slow parts to this story. I highly recommend this book as a fast paced, intense, mystery adventure. I would like to read similar titles by this author.

    As an entreprenuer, it is hard for me to shut off my brain! It is also hard for me to sit still! I love audibles! I can exercise, work on "chores" , travel and be entertained! Always looking for a good story!

    "Great Entertainment"

    The characters surprised me! I hated hearing a man only in his 60s described as old? But other than this, I think this is a good book to listen to for entertainment. And the bad guys got what was coming to them.

    Story
    "extremely disappointed"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    i had much higher expectations after reading other reviews, especially with the narration, which was so amateurish and annoying that i couldn't continue after only 20 minutes.


    What could C. J. Box have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    the story didn't capture my attention even after listening more than i wanted to.

    "Story grabbed my heart"

    This is my first C J Box novel and I must say I was totally taken in. I had just finished listening to the Lincoln Lawyer and I was looking for a follow-up story that wouldn't let me down. This one didn't disappoint. I think anytime you have a story that involves children that are at risk, a certain amount of tension ensues. I simply couldn't put this book down. I listened to it every chance I got, and that hasn't happened in a long time. I will have to say, tho, I did not care for the ending; however, the book was an excellent read. I would encourage anyone to get it.

    "Another excellent story by C.J. Box"

    Perhaps one of my favorites. I've either read or listened to everything Mr. Box has published. Keep up the good work.
    P.S. write faster!

    "A disappointment"

    I was expecting a lot more from the Edgar Award winner of 2009. This book was childishly written and read like a cartoon. Very disappointing. The competition must have been pretty weak in 2009 for the Edgar Award. This is not an award winning book.

    "A good book you can't put down"

    The action and suspense builds consistently toward the end. I found the plot and the behavior of the characters very credible. The characters are human with flaws and problems. At the end there is a little stumbling, but the bottom line is that you can't put this book (listen) down. It gets more and more exciting.

    "Good narrator, TERRIBLE Story"

    From beginning to end, the characters in this story make the most illogical and unbelievable decisions. I enjoyed John Bedfortd Lloyd's narration but even he couldn't salvage a poorly contrived novel.
