    "Raw & Real"

    I absolutely love Joe Picket so perhaps I am biased, but this is is a extremely well read audio book, the listener can hear the pain and emotion that only David Chandler can display. The story itself is intense, real and super raw. It is graphic and cutting edge. I highly recommend!! A++

    "Really a great listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of In Plain Sight to be better than the print version?

    The way the author can discribe the simplest things for a eletric heater to the dust created by a spooked Pronghorn. C.J.Box makes the book very educational, very entertaining and suppensfull. Can't to listen to the next in the series. Recomend highly if you like to hunt and fish or concerned with the issues of saving the wilderness.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, Nate adds an edgy side to the story


    Which character – as performed by David Chandler – was your favorite?

    Nate,


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes if possible. A great traveling book. Still great to listen in 10 to 20 minute intervals if you can shut it off. I will wait in my parking stall to hear what happens


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend it . The way he describes the sun, wind, light and feeling of the environment is amazing.

    Story
    "Another satisfying C.J. Box tale"

    One of C.J. Box's best.

    Rich lady rancher disappears leaving three wild and nutso sons, thought-dead foster daughter's real daddy comes to the area to avenge the crimes of Winterkill, Sheridan Pickett once again in the middle of it all, family featured prominently - this has all the best ingredients of C.J. Box's plotting, and is more realistic than the previous two in the series. The plot also sets up circumstances for future plots and draws us further in to the Pickett family.

    Story
    "Outstanding..."

    Seems like CJ Box is getting better and better. There've been a couple of Joe Pickett stories that were a little slow, but not this one. And the more recent CJ Box material (eg, Badlands) is anything but slow. So his work appears to be on some sort of upward trajectory, getting edgier and better the more he writes. Outstanding storytelling. Looking forward to the next one in the Joe Pickett series!!!

    "This one will make you anxious to get a hold of the following"

    An interesting story which involves prior characters in 12 sleep. He builds the bad guy in a unique way that makes the reader wonder how the events are going to work out and how Joe Pickett deals with it.

    "Not outstanding"

    A lot of action. The narrator does a very nice job. Mr Box writes well and the narrator gives life to the characters. My main reservation is this is another "kids in peril" story. I think we've had enough of that in this series.

    "Good series, EXCELLENT narration"

    I hate that Joe P is such a pansy so often. I wish he would speak up for himself more often instead of letting people treat him like dirt. I positively DESPISE Missy the idiot sheriff Kyle Mc (how did people ever elect him anyway?!) and this Randy Pope creep. I think MaryBeth should speak up more FOR Joe when her skank mom runs him down. She is pure evil and trash ....

    Story
    "Never disappoints!"
    Would you listen to In Plain Sight again? Why?

    probably, because a good book is always worth another read. Some times I am out of credits and books so I choose to go back re-listen to certain authors- CJ Box's Joe Pickett would be one of those. I am still going through the series right now though


    What did you like best about this story?

    Jakes return


    Which character – as performed by David Chandler – was your favorite?

    I like all of them but just love Jake.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    You never know when more family is going to show up


    Any additional comments?

    should have seen the river bank/Opal thing coming- i was off my game! As always David Chandler is the voice for these books - please don't ever change narrators

    "Very well written!"

    Wow! Some of the descriptive scenes were pretty brutal, but necessary to depict the story to completion. Well written and suspenseful! I enjoy CJ Box involves Joe Pickett's family in each book and describes how much bureaucracy there is within the departments of his job and the chain of command involved with his position as a Wyoming game warden. Each book of the Joe Pickett series gets better and better!
