I have been reading Joe Pickett novels since 2001. This one, the latest, started out like pieces of a jig saw puzzle that I wouldn't make much sense of because there's no up front picture to guide my reading. Then I got the great idea to shut off the television and concentrate on what was written, like following the trail through the woods. I love how C.J. Box is able to take the kaleidoscope of so many people and bring into focus a pretty good plot. Box is only 60 years old and may still have another 10 Pickett novels before stopping. The fans of Pickett are also fascinated with Nate Romanowski.
