Praise for Endangered
“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.
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
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.
