    "I can not seem to put it down!"
    Where does Winterkill rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was a good story. To begin with I did not think that I would be a fan of CJ Box, but I really enjoy his Joe Pickett series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Winterkill?

    The explosion of the compound and the death of little April.


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

    Nate Rama..... I enjoyed his characterization. I hope we see or hear from Nate again.


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

    Both.


    Any additional comments?

    Joe appears to be a good guy who tries to do the right thing regardless of the outcome. Very, very, very few people live life this way.

    "Enjoy the series!"

    My husband and I really enjoy these stories while driving. They are well written and very descriptive and aren't easy to figure out "who done it" which we like. Unpredictable and very enjoyable.

    "Another satisfying delivery by Box"

    I'm starting to devour these Joe Pickett books by C.J. Box. As I've mentioned in previous reviews, the narratives are tight and fast-paced, and all of the threads between family, murder, law enforcement at local, state and federal level, wildlife, and other plot issues come together nicely. In Winterkill, Box also demonstrates deft skill in weaving together plot lines from previous books.

    Winterkill also introduces a key character in the series - badass ex special forces dude Nate Romanowski. Romanowski, equipped with his black ops training and secret spidey sense from his ability to train raptors, provides a black flag kind of justice when he acts as a sidekick to rule-follower strong silent type Joe Pickett. Romanowski is also bad-boy sexy, and the narrator on the audio books gives him a ferocious growly voice. For fans of James Lee Burke, you'll see parallels between Romanowski & Clete Purcell without the high comedy.

    This book introduces some sadistic and incompetent federal government folks, some beat-up refugees from Ruby Ridge & Waco, the worn-out mother of Pickett's foster daughter from book 1, and mysteries within mysteries. We also see quite a lot of Joe's mother-in-law, Missy, who is a shallow but harmless creature so far.

    This book was good enough to prompt me download the next in the series and fire it up right away. Very well-crafted and satisfying.
