Once again, Box provides the complete suspense package: unobtrusively slick detection, buckets of surprises and mounting thrills, all amid his trademark settings in the majestic high country.
Terrifically entertaining stuff that comes together with a bang in the end...
...timeless...gripping...resemble(s) an Agatha Christie closed-community whodunnit but with horses, bears, wolves, and hunting rifles.
Box...knows life and death in the backcountry like few other writers today.
...a taut tale...that hooks you.
"If Box isn't already on your list, put him there."
...a riveting, unforgettable work...beautifully written and wonderfully told. (Bookreporter.com)
...perceptive...well-rounded...smooth, muscular writing keeps the tension rising.
Grade A...page-flying suspense with superior character portrayal...a great adventure.
From the Back Cover
"Once again, Box provides the complete suspense package." ―Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Cody Hoyt, although a brilliant cop, is an alcoholic struggling with two months of sobriety when his friend Hank Winters turns up dead in a reomte mountain cabin. At first it looks like the suicide of a man who's fallen off the wagon, but Cody knows Hank better than that. As Cody digs deeper into the case, all roads lead to foul play. After years of bad behavior with his department, Cody in no position to be investigating a homicide. But he will stop at nothing to find out who murdered Hank. And why…
"A great creation." ―Houston Chronicle
When clues found at the scene link the murderer to an outfitter leading tourists on a multiday wilderness horseback trip in Yellowstone National Park, Cody is desperate to get on the trail and stop the killer in his tracks. There's only one catch: his own son, Justin, is among the tourists. Now, in one of the most remote places on earth, Cody must enter a deadly cat-and-mouse game with a ruthless enemy who seems to know his every move...and is hell-bent on destroying the only important thing in Cody's life he has left.
"[A] SUPERIOR…Page-flying…ADVENTURE." ―Cleveland Plain Dealer--This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Having said that, the book itself was OK. One of the reasons I really like Box's work is because he really gets the landscape of Wyoming. You won't find another current writer out there who can describe it the way he does. also, I really like Joe Pickett. He has a strong moral center even though he is pig headed about it. And Nate Romanowski is wonderful as Joe's darker side(kick). The stories have mostly all be engrossing and entertaining. Although the violence sometimes makes me wince.
BoB takes the violence to a whole other level and I did NOT like it one bit. Contributing to the national thirst for more and more blood and violence is not a good way to go. I sure hope this doesn't herald a trend for Box.
Other than that - suspend all credibility, switch off your judgement , grab a frosty out the cooler , and enjoy
