I've read all 17 of CJ Box's novels featuring Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett. This is one of the absolute best. The book is WAY better written than it needs to be, as a genre mystery/thriller. Box will never be mistaken for a brilliant "literary" crime novelist like Tana French - but he has evolved as a writer in impressive fashion to where, in my opinion, with this novel in particular, he is almost on the verge of being worthy of the "L" word. His prose is smooth and incredibly vivid, and even minor characters are imbued with a reasonably complex inner life. But have no fear that that action will be neglected - Box delivers the goods with PLENTY of intense action.

Box has from the beginning incorporated social issues and complex moral shades of grey into his novels, which adds a richness and depth, and this novel is no exception. Also, for a male author of essentially "men's fiction", featuring a male hero, Box is downright progressive in terms of gender politics. "I need your brain on this one, Marybeth", Joe tells his wife at one point. Joe views his wife as an equal partner and in fact is rather in awe of her intellect and overall competency at times.

His female characters are not just there to be saved or as window dressing. There is one extended scene in particular that is a conversation between Marybeth and her mom that is largely unnecessary to the plot but I am so glad it was included, as it was actually quite poignant and added a lot of depth to the proceedings.

At one point Marybeth reacts to an incredibly scary and imminent threat to her family in the most calm, level-headed, quick-witted, and on-point manner imaginable, and is ironically, and to Marybeth's disgust, treated completely inaccurately as being hysterical, and told to "calm down". Could this be a sly commentary by the author on the way in which women are often still treated even today? To me, it seemed likely. ( )

The farm animals try to divert a busy little spider from spinning her web, but she persists and produces a thing of both beauty and usefulness. The pictures may be felt.

This is my first book by C.J. Box, loved it. Fast pace thriller taken place in Wyoming. I find myself avoiding mystery books with plot in large cities like Los Angeles or NYC. Looking forward to read more by this author. ( )

3.5 stars--Of the three Joe Pickett novels I found on the library sale shelf, I would say this one was the best of the three. I haven't read the book where Dallas Cates and April Pickett were featured (I assume there is one) but I've read about Dallas in one of the other novels so I was somewhat familiar with the incident. This novel reveals more about the Cates family than I knew previously and more about how their lives intersected with that of the Pickett family. I also got to meet Marybeth's mother for the first time. Readers also get to hear what's happened with Nate and Liv.

The plot of the novel starts from the first chapter and keeps going (which is different than the other two novels in this series that I've read). I didn't put it all together until the author revealed how it was done. I have no idea if there is such a thing as a tongue controlled wheelchair. I'm guessing not since if there was, I would think that famous people would have had one rather than the sip-and-puff type. I found the fact that it contained an iPhone interesting, especially since it was related to what was supposed to be a cellphone free zone. ( )
