BLUF: Great book. Great standalone. The story is not suspenseful for the most part, but it is captivating. I highly recommend.
While solving a case regarding endangered species, Forrest Ranger Joe Pickett receives news that they found a girl badly beaten on the side of the highway. They aren’t sure, but she resembles his daughter. Joe takes us on a journey to find out what happened to the girl and the endangered species.
Really, the summary does not give this book any justice. CJ Box hooks readers from the start and does not let go. By weaving the multiple vantages into one story, CJ Box will leave you on the edge of your seat. Unfortunately, I cannot say much about this book without giving anything away! Characters are realistic, writing is wonderful, storyline draws you in, and this can be read as a standalone. Only thing I had a problem with in this book is that I don’t know Western terms – but there were few are far between.
I will definitely be reading more from CJ Box!
