"Edgar-finalist Box...expertly evokes Wyoming's landscape, wildlife, people and politics." (Publishers Weekly)
"Box puts on a hell of a show." (Booklist)
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++
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.
My mom taught me to read when i was 3 and i've been reading ever since. I LOVE to read and now 'listen' to books.
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 ....
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.
Yes, Nate adds an edgy side to the story
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
I highly recommend it . The way he describes the sun, wind, light and feeling of the environment is amazing.
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!!!
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.
Very well written. The ending was a surprise. It leaves you with your imagination and looking for the next book in the series.
