from Putnam’s release…
“All the action and suspense of Box’s long string of high-country adventures, with a solution that’s considerably tighter and more satisfying than most of them. One of Joe’s best.” — Kirkus (starred review)
“Is there a crime-fiction family as fully fleshed out as Joe Pickett’s? Pickett’s supporting cast – wife Marybeth and daughters Sheridan, Lucy and April – lends a continuity and grounding to this series that sets it apart from all the lone-wolf stuff out there… As they often do, things get western, with the carefully constructed plot building to a breathless, thrilling end.” — Booklist
In 2014, the critics were unanimous about the Joe pickett thriller Stone Cold —
“C.J. Box moves from strength to strength with each new installment. I would say that he is at the top of his form, but the top just keeps moving ever upward.” — Bookpage
Now comes ENDANGERED, the new Joe Pickett novel which Putnam will publish on March 10, 2015 ($26.95). And with this 15th entry in the New York Times best-selling series, C.J. Box has done it again.
As the story opens, April, Joe Pickett’s 18-year-old daughter, has disappeared. Joe already had good reason to dislike rodeo champ Dallas Cates, but now he has even more of a case against him — Joe learns that it is Dallas with whom April had run off. And now she is missing.
Then comes even worse news: the body of a girl has been found in a ditch along the highway – she’s alive, but just barely, the victim of blunt force trauma. That girl proves to be April, and the doctors don’t know if she’ll recover. Dallas denies having anything to do with it — says she ran off from him, too – and there’s evidence that points to another man. But Joe knows in his gut which person is responsible for bringing her to harm. What Joe doesn’t know is the kind of danger he’s about to encounter. Dallas Cates is bad enough, but Cates’s twisted family is like none Joe has ever met before. And they will do anything to protect Dallas – literally anything.
Joe’s going to find out the truth, even if it kills him. And this time, it just might.
