Reviews

Praise for C.J. Box and Wolf Pack

"Look up tried and true in the literary dictionary and you'll find a picture of C. J. Box, thanks to his superb Joe Pickett series. For proof look no further than Wolf Pack, in which Box tops even himself....A thriller of rare depth and emotion, featuring pitch perfect plotting and characterizations every bit the equal of Cormac McCarthy and Larry McMurtry."--Providence Journal

"Just as nature is tough in the West, where the fittest and sometimes just the lucky survive, there are plenty of human casualties in Wolf Pack. Readers probably won't guess who will survive even as they appreciate the momentum of Box's wild, shoot-out conclusion."--Columbus Dispatch

"Box is the king of contemporary crime fiction set in the West."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"One of his most tightly wound tales, with more thrills than a snowy road on a steep mountain and more authority than the governor of Wyoming."--Kirkus Reviews

"As always, Box takes familiar elements of his long running series...and seamlessly combines them into a read that makes your heart race, even though you won't leave the couch until you've turned the last page. Half mystery, half thriller, totally worthwhile...You can just about set your watch by a Joe Pickett novel in March; the number-one-best-selling author's legion of fans will be counting down the minutes."--Booklist

"Wolf Pack is the most unexpected, relentless, and action-packed novel [Box has] ever written." -The Real Book Spy, Featured Review

"C.J. Box's Joe Pickett series...might just be the best franchise going right now regardless of genre."--The Real Book Spy

"Somewhere along the way, the Pickett books stopped being merely competent regional fiction-featuring stunning mountain scenery, ample hunting and fishing, and a likeable, cowboyish hero-and became one of the most consistently satisfying thriller series ever written...Joe Pickett now rivals Jack Reacher as a protagonist that loyal readers will follow anywhere...Veteran Box readers will expect this inevitable convergence to be both surprising and clever, and they will not be disappointed."--Chapter16

"Reading Box's new book each year and following Joe, Marybeth, Nate Romanowski, and others is similar to catching up with old friends you haven't seen in a while. It's a real treat, especially for longtime fans of the series. Nobody has ever developed a family the way Box has with the Picketts over the course of nineteen novels. Whereas most series are losing steam and becoming repetitive this deep into their run, Box continues to find brilliant new ways to shake things up."--CrimeReads, The Best New Thrillers This Month

"That this book is a thriller is appealing, but the scenery in the story is just as attractive and author C.J. Box tops it off by bringing into this novel many of his best-loved characters...If you're new to this author, prepare yourself for a future search for the rest of the series."--Bookworm Sez
