    "A very fun read!"

    Free Fire is the best of the three Joe Pickett novels I've "read" so far. The plot is complex, yet not convoluted. The characters act believably. Most of all, it's a fun read.

    "Worth a Read, But Not His Best"

    I am a real fan of C J Box, but this story was a bit far-fetched, compared to his normal plots. The whole conspiracy thing, the corrupt lawyer, the rivalry within and between agencies, the exploited legal loophole, the undercurrent between Joe and the female officer, was somehow a bit off the mark. Those who regularly read Box will enjoy it, but I wouldn't recommend this for a first-time Box reader. So many of his are better.

    Story
    "The Greatest stumbling block $$$$$$$"

    Welcome to the creative world of C J Box even though he has the foundation of 5 characters ; Nick, joe's wife, 2 daughters, and Joe, the story line s almost always about honor and doing the right thing. But the setting is always interesting and moves all around a 3 state area. The chain of events has been totally different in everyone of the books I have listened to and it is always a treat to complete one book and begin the next and find out what the next miss adventure is going to turn upL

    Story
    "Yellowstone will never look the same to you"

    I loved all the Joe Pickett novels, and this is a favorite; The description of the inner structure of the lodge is great; however, this story isn't for the even moderately squeamish. You'll never look at a hot springs quite the same way again, and the exit roads from Yellowstone can be lonely and dark....

    "Where is Nate's voice?"
    What did you love best about Free Fire?

    I loved that Joe got to try something new


    What three words best describe David Chandler’s voice?

    I really like David Chandler and that he has been reading for all of the Joe Pickett stories...my only complaint is that he changed his voice for Nate! He voice in the previous books was much more recognizable and I liked the consistency in the past.

    "Pretty good"

    It was pretty good overall. It did drag in a couple of areas and the ending was flat. I do like CJ Box and will continue to listen to his books.

    Story
    "One of the best Joe Pickett books"

    All of the Joe Pickett books are great, but this one is exceptional. Wyoming Game Warden Joe is on temporary assignment to Yellowstone Park, where he comes face to face with part of his traumatic childhood which has not been revealed before. He is also traveling with his bad-ass mirror image, Nate Romanowski, who shows him some of his black ops secrets of Yellowstone. You'll never look at a visitor's center or national park hotel the same way.

    Another skillful plot by Box, which ties up good-guy local rangers, corrupt bureaucrats, bad/good feds, a very weird legal loophole making murder legal in a corner of the park, and bio-mining skullduggery. Box has an amazing way of capturing the potential for good and evil at all levels of government & the private sector.

    "Action packed story. Too much strong/vulgar language."

    This is a very good story in the Joe Pickett series however once again I am disappointed at the level of vulgar language used. I don't care for the "f" word or the "GD" used. Would have been just as good or better without.

    "Love this series.. Best one yet!"

    I could not stop listening. By the end of each book I need more and more. I started from the beginning book 1, and I'm already fearing when I get to the last book..I don't want it to ever end..
    Great narrator, he brings all the characters to life...
