“All the action and suspense of Box’s long string of high-country adventures. Endangered is one of Joe’s best.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Is there a crime-fiction family as fully fleshed out as Joe Pickett’s? In singing the praises of Box’s series, we often praise the plotting, pacing, and the down-to-earth hero’s friendship with force-of-nature Nate Romanowski. But Pickett’s supporting cast lends a continuity and grounding to this series that sets it apart from all the lone-wolf stuff out there. A carefully constructed plot building to a breathless, thrilling end.”—Booklist
“Series fans will love this thriller. The nonstop action, intermingling plotlines, and the return of familiar characters all mesh into a breathless, roller-coaster ride of sheer suspense and entertainment.”—Library Journal
“An edge-of-the-seat thriller. A tightly coiled plot that springs from surprise to surprise.”—South Florida Sun-Sentinel
“Once again, Box delivers a winner. Grade: A.”—Cleveland Plain Dealer

I like Joe Pickett because he is us. He crosses lines that we would cross too if those situations were presented. Box keeps it "western" but there is always a moral bedrock under it all. The device he uses here of contrasting families is well done . By this time you can feel the cohesiveness of a living family we have been reading about. The other family literally implodes in shocking speed. It's Nate to the rescue yet again. And I suspect a new character for the series that is along unexpected lines but good to see. I highly recommend this one. See done Mr .Box.
The narrative flows effortlessly to a startlingly suspenseful climax. Totally recommend this book to anyone who likes the outdoors and action adventure.
There were a couple of possible slips. How did Nate get in touch with Viv? She had lost her phone. Then, back on page 180 CJ had a bucket bouncing off rungs of a ladder that had already been removed. But no biggie, excellent work.
It was good but I was disappointed in how suddenly everything was all wrapped up in a simple package. Most of the good people survived with out too many problems. I found this a little too simple. I wondered if previous novels were similar. Sometimes I think authors must get tired of the same protagonist novel after novel and after many books they tend to disappoint.
I had problems believing that April survived without any complications, I also had problems with Nate and how he was able to be in the right place at the right time considering his condition and how he connects with Liv in the time frame and how he was able to call her when she had lost her cell phone etc.
All in all I will try to get the earlier novels and follow this character to see if I like the previous books better. It was good enough to persue that venue

April first came into the Pickett family lives when she was only 5, now all grown up and 18 she has been and always will be the wild cat of the three girls that make up Joe and Mary-Beth’s daughters. Now Joe has had more than his fair share of nut cases on his patch and some of them working in pretty high positions in the community so he isn’t new at treading on toes. The last book I read in the series saw April taking off with Dallas Cates, a wealthy wild boy and son of a dodgy business man who Joe had discredited. This book opens with a radio call telling Joe of a body of a young woman being found, just outside of town badly beaten and unconscious in a ditch. It is April.
Nate Romanowski, who had been trained in Special Operations, always ended up getting the bad guys but it had a way of turning the tables on him because of uncover operations and a bit of freelance to help a friend now and again. To get out of jail he had just signed a deal with the agency, but with conditions. One being to stay away from the Pickett’s as Nate and Joe make a formidable team when bringing the bad guys down. This normally leaves a bit of a body count and a high tax bill for the state. You must read how these guys met. They are an incredible team.
Now within the first chapter I must admit to salivating, oh this was like coming home at harvest time. C. J. Box just makes these characters come to life and feel like family. I hurt when they hurt and feel so protective of Joe’s girls as I have seen them grow up over the years to become independent young women, each of them with such different characters. I can’t say that Nate played a big part in this book but when he does make an appearance I just have to admit to the odd swoon from me.
Just love the cool methodical way that Joe tackles every situation. I can feel his rage but love how he bides his time. Oh wow what a story unravels it is just superb. So tense, so heart in my mouth, so brilliantly cool! Talk about when a good plot comes together, well this one has a high-five start, middle and end. Now straight on to my next Joe Pickett book. for me.
He never fails to provide the reader with a real sense of escapism to the wild west of America - an imaginary journey this UK resident is only to happy to embark on!
Joe Pickett is one warm and decent man, and with each book I have become more attached to him and his family - characters that are likeable and believable, and stories that take you on a journey and in which you become totally absorbed and engaged.
Yes, this series ticks all the boxes for me.
If you haven't come across Joe Pickett before, it would probably be a good idea to read the books in sequence. You have a real treat ahead of you.
I've read the whole series so far, so I feel I know Joe and his family. I'm already wanting to read the next story, I want more!
