    "Will Nate ever get the girl?"

    The author has no problem killing off characters we have grown to like and want to know more about! The story gets a little unbelievable but it is fiction after all.

    "Good to learn about Nate, but flaws through out"

    Start right with there :SPOILER ALERT. 1st i have to say that finally learning so much about Nate was a long time coming and very welcome. BUT when in the parts that dealt with JP there are several flaws.So at 7;38 in to the book when they talk about ALL of us leaving why do they leave Sheridan out of the picture. If you thought your family was being threatened by a ruthless killer why on earth would you not take the one daughter who now lives away at college (where she was easily accessed and might not be missed right away) and who IMHO has the strongest connection to Nate. You can't reach her-call the school and have her tracked down. It makes no sense. Then there is the whole 'language/word" usage by Joe's trainee. Really JP sometimes you are dumber than a box of rocks. Even me who is from Ohio but have family on the east coast caught on to 'soda, venison'. And then there is Joe stuck in the snow smelling carbon monoxide in his truck-hey CJ carbon monoxide is odorless, some people think they smell it but they are smelling exhaust. There was more but honestly there were so many I would shake my head and stop recalling. I think those flaws are what bothered me the most about the story.

    But it was so great to get Nate background that I can absolutely recommend the book. As ALWAYS David Chandler is fabulous.

    this is first of the Joe Pickett books that i havent given 5 stars in every category

    "Enjoyed thoroughly"

    I have enjoyed every book I have listened to by C.J. Box. The narrator captures the characters very well and is enjoyable to listen to. This particular book reveals a lot about Nate.

    "When you get sooooo involved that you become angry"

    When you get sooooo involved that you become angry with one of the characters for acting like a stupid egomaniac...and I did get that involved. That's a GOOD book! I now condider this the best in the series but there is still 2 to go.

    So many questions that we had surrounding Nate have been answered. He is still out there to save the day. Or to be saved?

    "The entire series is wonderful"

    I have listed to the entire series and found each one more endearing than the last. Love Joe, his family and of course the very cool Nate. My favorite parts are when everything goes "Western" or at least is on the verge of it.

    I have always loved to read. As a child my mom actually grounded me from books if I was in trouble. Noone can do that now. Yay!

    "FinALly, Nate is the star -- but..."

    I have enjoyed the Joe Pickett series -- particularly the novels that feature Nate Romanowski. He is by far my favorite character. So, one might expect that this outing would be my favorite of the series because Nate is the star. And I would hope for the same Unfortunately I don't quite get there. Nate is undermined in this book. His secrets are spilled and he seems like just another anti-hero in just another mystery series. He isn't unique in this book, and his uniqueness is what made me love him. I hope Nate reappears in the next book and we discover that there is much more beneath the surface that wasn't spilled all over the pages of Force of Nature.

    Story
    "Propitious Pickett"

    I am very glad to have come across this series. This was my first book by C.J. Box and in the, Joe Picket, series. This book stood on its own and made me want to read more in this series.

    Even though the story is set in Wyoming and follows a game warden, it is not anything like the Walt Longmire series. I enjoyed it very much, it was original, informative and had great characters that I'm looking forward to getting to know better.

    David Handler did an excellent job with the narration. I have listened to him before but this is his niche, his voice fits Joe Picket perfectly.
