What the Critics Say

"Picturesque detailing, admirable prose, and agitating suspense demonstrate the appeal of this follow-up to Box’s Edgar nominated debut." (Library Journal)

"Laconic Joe Pickett returns to his slightly offbeat duties in Wyoming's Bighorn Mountains in C. J. Box's Savage Run. Joe is called to the scene when an exploding cow kills a famous ecoterrorist, Stewie Woods, and his bride of three days, who were peacefully spiking trees. A visit to the cow's pugnacious owner leaves Joe defensive, angry, and curious: Why doesn't the rancher ask any questions about the bizarre accident that happened on his land? Then Joe's wife, Marybeth, begins receiving phone calls from her high-school boyfriend - the peculiarly healthy-sounding Stewie Woods. Stewie may or may not be alive, but his old pal Hayden Powell and other environmental activists are all turning up deceased in strange circumstances. As the body count climbs, Joe tries to sort out the bad guys, the good guys, and the truly dead guys in this sometimes funny, sometimes angry [novel]. Box depicts the spare beauty and cussed individualism of the intermountain West with the sure hand of a seasoned writer." (Amazon.com review)

    "A little preachy"

    I didn't feel like this was as good as the first one, but still an enjoyable read. Some surprises, but if the entire series is going to be environmentalists vs. ranchers, I'm not sure I'll continue.

    "As always, a get book!"
    If you could sum up Savage Run in three words, what would they be?

    exciting, suspenseful, and bloody!


    What does David Chandler bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    David does a great job reading, that allows you to relax and really get into the characters!

    "Great Book and Author"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, Box is one of us and has been here, done this.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It mostly kept me on the edge of my driver's seat (I listen while driving to work).

    Story
    "One of the best recurring character series"

    This is one of my favorite series, just hope Box and come closer to an output like Sandford has in Prey books. Listen to them all, none disappoint in the least. It would be good to listen to them in order, but doesn't hurt not to. Also try the Walt Longmire series by Craig Johnson and Hackberry Holland by the great James Lee Burke - all of which appeal to me as the mains are my age.

    Story
    "Narrator''s weakness limits character portrayals."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Good story though occasionally contrived and bordering on credulity. Characters could be more effectively portrayed.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would change the narrator. David Chandler's characterization of females is frustrating. Some fairly strong females personnas sound like petulant, whining post-adolescents - all with little variation among their voices. Similarly, too many of the older male voices of middle-aged male characters sound - in octave, tone and emotional expression, like high school kids.


    Was Savage Run worth the listening time?

    Yes, if somewhat frustrating due to reader's limitations.
