Praise for C.J. Box’s 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
“A great read that is fast-paced, suspenseful, and action-packed. The best yet of the series.” —Blackfive

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.
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
