-**-. Wow! What a great story. .-**- I don't want to say more because I don't want to spoil this wonderful book. At one point, late at night, I felt goosebumps rise. I wanted to wake my wife up to pull me out of what I was feeling. The only other time I actually did this was staying up all night to read THE SHINING long ago. This book has its own echo of sheer of terror. Well done C.J.

This is a very good read even if you don't like Cody Hoyt. This time he is out looking for his son who is on an adventure, Many twists and turns. I enjoyed this book.

C J Box is THE scribe of the current crop of murder mystery writers, where his contemporaries have all largely flamed out, Box continues to deliver one solid sender after another. This may be his most ambitious novel yet and kept me guessing to the LAST page! Really! There is no differentiating Joe Pickett stories from his "one-offs", all of his books satisfy, though maybe the "free standing" stories offer more latitude for trying out new ideas. I'll keep reading his every new work until the cows come home and I hope they're all WAY out on the North 40!

"This is the third stand-alone mystery from Box, author of the excellent Joe Pickett series, and fans know they can expect lean prose and a tightly organized plot. Box delivers both in what is surely his best novel so far."

I rated this high because of the settings. The setting is in Yellowstone as most of his books are. For some reason, even though something is always behind ever tree or under the ground, I am relaxed when reading C.J.Box. I enjoy his Joe Pickett novels and even if this one isn't one, it is just as good. I am probably taken by the author more than of how good this book was, but in the end I enjoyed it and am looking forward to his next book.
