Praise for Endangered
“All the action and suspense of Box's long string of high-country adventures.... One of Joe's best.”—Kirkus Review
Praise for Stone Cold
“[A] superlative outing . . . Box gets everything right: believably real characters, a vivid setting, clear prose and ratcheting tension. Maintaining these standards over 14 novels is more than impressive.”—The Plain Dealer
“Stone Cold features carefully crafted characters who live in the wilds of Wyoming, a setting that Box uses to great effect . . . Box creates a story with an unique premise and takes readers along for a suspenseful, action-filled ride.”—The Denver Post
“Box weaves vivid descriptions of Wyoming’s landscape and the personal drama of Pickett’s family into a blistering page-turner.”—Arizona Republic
“In C.J. Box's thrillers, [Wyoming] is a featured character and you get to know its thickly forested mountains, its windy plains and its frontierlike towns . . . [a] fun read.”—Associated Press
“Another exciting read from crime fiction’s king of the great outdoors.”—Madison County Herald
“The author has proven that he can write good -- no, great – books.”—Wyoming Eagle Tribune
“With each book, Box just gets better. Nonstop action, a twisty plot, and great characters make his latest a must-read for fans of this series.”—Library Journal
“This marks a welcome return to the thing Box does best: putting family man Joe in a dicey situation where, despite his orders to merely observe, his own moral code means he can’t help but light the fuse and see where it leads. Being in unfamiliar territory is familiar territory for Pickett, and corrupt-town scenarios are as old as the hills, but Box uses the ploys for maximum suspense.”—Booklist
“Exhilarating . . . Canny Joe uses his wits, taking time to assess the literal and figurative lay of the land.”—Publishers Weekly

Top Customer Reviews
In Endangered, one of Box's most colorful character returns, Nate Romanowski, the loner, isolationist falconer, who also happens to be Joe Pickett's closest friend. This story is personal to Joe Pickett as the novel starts out with his middle daughter, April, being found beaten, near death on the side of a local road. Immediately, Joe suspects Dallas Cates, April's rodeo boyfriend, who Joe never liked and has resented the fact that April left home to be with Cates on the rodeo circuit. Meanwhile, Nate is being released from custody for his involvement in a murder for hire operation from the last novel. He is being used as bait for the Feds to catch Wolfgang Templeton, the billionaire who hired Nate because of his "outside the law" skill set.
Things happen and Nate and April end up in the same hospital. CJ Box knits together this mystery/thriller like a seasoned weaver resulting in a satisfying, yet unpredictable ending. If you haven't been exposed to the Joe Pickett series, this is as good as any to start. Once you do, I'm confident you'll be picking up the rest of the series. Highly recommended.
Joe Pickett is always running into bad situations but this time his family is involved. His almost-adoptive daughter April is found dumped alongside the road, beaten badly. And Joe is hellbent on finding out who did this heinous act, meanwhile praying for April's recovery.
Like most of Box's books, there is more than one storyline and the action is very fast-paced. And the bad guys are particularly nasty this time around.
You can read this as a standalone but if you haven't read the Joe Pickett series, do yourself a favor and start at the beginning and savor each one.
The action is suspenseful and often has twists and turns that are believable.
A good captivating read. Hard to put it down
