    Story
    "Each book better than the one before"

    I'm making my way theough the series, listening on audible narration. Each book is better than the one before; the narrator, David Chandler is a superb narrator, and I'm hoping he performs the entire series.
    The author had created believably human characters that, as in life, grow and change as time progresses.
    His descriptions of the west are amazingly crafted and transports me back home where I smell the sage and make my heart ache for the magnificent beauty of the area.
    What a gift of storytelling Mr Box has, and what skill he had honed as a gift to listeners.

    Story
    "Oh the web we weave in order to deceive"

    The governor continuer to surround himself with people with questionable character and agendas, and joe is the house cleaner.
    So far in this story line the dirt hasn't fallen directly on the governor but the clock continues to tick.
    I have joes friend Nate is really getting ready to slip way into the background, and only show up in dire circumstances .

    Story
    "Box and Chandler -- another hit!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Blood Trail to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I love the combo of Box and Chandler. His narration is top notch - portraying Picektt and his friend Nate so well that you will wish you had listened instead of read it yourself once you give it a try.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was fairly intense with a unique perspective into the thoughts of the bad guy. This is a new style of storytelling to the Pickett novels and it works for this story.

    Story
    "CJ Box is like Fedex, he always delivers"

    I have listened to eight Joe Pickett novels and they are consistently entertaining. Box's strength is that he knows how to move a story along. Other than the occasional chapter spent with Pickett's daughters, the plot is like the arrow of time and always moves forward. Plus Joe is not a flawed hero. I hate listening to stories about one time alcoholics and how they ruined their lives or protagonists with complicated pasts. There are enough complications in real life without having to be confronted with it in my escape fiction. My only concern is what happens when I get to novel number fifteen?

    "Probably His Best Thus Far! 😱"

    Non-stop action. Plenty of plot twists which were unpredictable. No obvious plot deficits. Great closing.

    Story
    "This Review Needs A Title...So, I Gave it One"

    Someone is killing off hunters in Wyoming. 8 books into this series and I'm still really enjoying it. He now has to deal with leaking roofs and nosy neighbors. Reporting directly to the governor he has become a troubleshooter and fills in where needed at the whim of the governor. All the characters are there: Nate, wife and kids and some others new to the story line.Those are the bad guys. Some familiar ones get bumped off. At the end, there are a pile of bodies. The story is clean and firm.

    "Roof fixing"

    I just started this book and find Joe fixing his roof in the most inept way I can think of. How does a guy get to be 40 and not know how roof shingles work? I find that really unbelievable. Shame on you, Joe.

    "Stereotypical Characters"

    I think this story would have been more interesting if the author had given the characters more depth. I like to understand what makes people act in the way they do. You can move the plot forward more effectively if the characters, even the bad ones, have a life.
