    "Weasel"

    The first novel of a series featuring Joe Pickett, a Wyoming game warden who get involved in a mystery with poachers, endangered species, big oil and some really nefarious characters. The setting is cool; Wyoming wilderness, family man, mystery. A tale of good guys gone bad. I especially liked the 4 year old girl, who acted like one.Think I'll have another book, thank you.

    Great voice. Really a good listen. I'll definitely recommend it. I've always read CJ Box 's books. Audio is better

    "A new series to devour"

    Is it great literature? Of course not. But it is a great listen. I love the Cork O'Conner series by William Kent Kruger and was so sad to finish all of them. This is filling their place. It helps a lot that David Chandler also narrates the Joe Pickett series. I love his voice. He is the perfect narrator for this genre.

    "nail biting and enjoyable"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Unusual murder mystery. Interesting about family, friendship, doing right versus getting along and the politics of the woods. The viewpoint shifts among the characters including a young girl and it is very believable.

    "Box's Open Season"

    CJ Box did it again. A great story to get lost in. I can't wait to hear the next Joe Pickett adventure.

    "Good story, interesting characters, poorly written."

    Could have been so much better. Too much telling and not enough showing. Dialogue really poor.

    Any additional comments?

    I very much enjoyed this book. Joe Pickett is a great character. He is honest, dedicated and an excellent family man and game warden. He has a wonderful family (wife Mary Beth and daughters Sheridan and Lucy) and a great dog (labrador Maxine). In this first book of the series we get to know him as he struggles on a low salary doing a fantastic job; however, he is having difficulties that get worse and worse. The reader is excellent. I will continue with this series.

    "pitiful"

    i have listened to other books by c.j. box and this one is totally different!! Totally boring, drags while your main character is determined he is also barney fife. you are constantly hit over the head by endangered species warnings, hints, and public announcements. Gee do you think it has anything to do with the story? And there are abt 10 more chapters i just can't wade through them.
