C.J. Box’s Open Season is a rare debut mystery that “immediately sets itself apart from the crowd” (Booklist). This thrilling novel stars Joe Pickett, a game warden in Wyoming who finds his life in danger after he looks into a murder investigation and discovers a conspiracy involving an oil pipeline and its threat to an endangered species.

Not a whole lot to report here, other than the story starts with a good mystery, draws a fully formed character and delivers on the promise of a good tale.
My first Pickett, I'm in.
I read both of Mr Box's "Cody Holt" novels and liked them so much that I decided to start on the "Joe Pickett" novels. This first book was so good that I've been listening non-stop to the rest of the series. Now I am up to book 7 and going strong. These stories keep my interest up. Each book ties into the next one very well. The narrator does a wonderful job. I highly recommend the whole "Joe Pickett" series.
A better story line
More interesting character flow. I could not finish the book
Too dramatic when drama wasn't appropriate
I couldn't finish the book. It was just boring.
The survival of the daughter in the mountain
there were a few anxious moments. There were some unexpected twists
This book won't win any Pulitzers, but it sure is entertaining! Good story set in the Rockies. This is a first in a series. If the rest of them are this good, I will be listening to all of them.
The story was engaging and I enjoyed David Chandler's narration.
It was incredibly suspenseful and well written.
He has a pleasing voice that keeps me engaged.
Are you kidding? It's about 7 hours long. My family might get ticked when mom is locked in the bathroom listening to a 7 hour long audiobook. I do have super long commutes, so this really helped make my drive more pleasant.
I plan on listening to all the Pickett books now.
intrigue, exciting, interesting
the different mini stories kept me wondering how they connect. didn't want to put it down
when the daughter came running to the yard and picket was behind the man who was going to shoot her.
I recommend this as a must for mystery readers
the co;untry. the game warden just the whole book......
the game warden and daughter
i was sorry when it ended.
Didn't like Open Season enough to consider CJ Box again--unless I get it from the library. In my opinion, this was not worth spending a credit. I got very tired of all the foreshadowing without moving the story along. Figured out the plot/bad guys/good guys within the first few chapters. Once I knew this, I was bored.
A different Writer
Let anyone else write the dialog between males in the story
Did not like the book at all
