I love a good book
This was my first C J Box novel and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The plot held me from the beginning and the twist in the ending was wonderful. I like how he has a character to stand up to the EPA, the symbol of a government out of control and tyrannical, as it appears to actually be with this administration.
It's little guy against the government thugs and politicians. Wonderful plot. Great story line and the picturesque background make for a great read. .
The outdoorsman and hunter elements connected with me. I could feel the cold, heat, and the suspense.
David Chandler wasn't bad but not much variety or distinction in his characters. C.J. Box on the other hand reminded me of a bad Louis Lamoure. What a far-fetched story, the EPA using missile firing drones and game wardens running rapids & waterfall on a log. This book goes to the bottom of my list.
The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie King
Living in Idaho, near the Wilderness Area, I run across a lot of people with the same attitudes as the author. Gun-totters with cowboy hats, their mouths full of chew and throwing Coors Lite beer cans out their Ford pickups windows. They think that because they were raised there, that God's Country is their own personal property and treat it as such. If it wasn't for the EPA there would be a lot more damage done to our public lands.
Close to 4.5 stars.
This was my first Joe Pickett story, and probably won't be my last. It follows Joe Pickett, a game warden, leading a group of EPA agents to go after a friend who is accused of murdering two EPA agents. It was like a roller coaster ride wondering what was going to happen next. The story revolves around the abuse of power by someone high up in the EPA. There was action and sadness at the destruction of a family and a surprise ending.
The narrator did a great job. Was even pretty good with the female voices.
