My Review
CJ Box remains one of my firm favourite crime authors but its been a while since I picked up a Joe Pickett novel so when I saw his new release was out I jumped at the chance to read it,

Box has a way of combining the evocative landscape and environment of Wyoming America in an almost Scandinavian way that only enhances the enjoyable and often action based stories he comes up with,

That said there isn't all that much in the way of action in this novel, it is much more procedural in that sense,  In fact Pickett seems a much more subdued character than we have seen him in the past, partly because he is dealing with the family trauma but also because he is without his usually partner Nate who has been found shot himself and his girlfriend is missing,

Once again Box covers some familiar ground though in terms of government overreach, this time looking at what happens when personal motivations of civil servants become involved in their work.  

A solid Joe Pickett novel
