Hits ya like a cold wind from the Big Horn mountains...

...and keeps you warm like the embers of a camp fire.

If you like William Kent Krueger, you'll love C.J. Box and vice versa.

Just finished Box's first four Joe Pickett novels, called, Open Season, Savage Run, Winterkill, and Trophy Hunt. Stunning, engaging, mysterious I dare say, endearing. That's a lot for one book, but Box delivers.

Makes you want to saddle up and go for a ride into the Wyoming canyons, pines, buttes and forests and search for the cold truth no matter how blazing it may be.

Joe Pickett Novels by C.J. Box in chronological order, left to right:

Mr. Box also writes stand alone thrillers. For more information check out his website: C.J. Box

Much like Joe Pickett,  William Kent Krueger's character, Cork O Conner, scouts the backwoods of the northern boundary waters of Minnesota. O'Connor, part Irish, part Anishinaabe Indian and a former sheriff of Aurora, MN finds the truth no matter how difficult the search may be.

Krueger, like Box, writes stand alone thrillers too.  Here are his O'Conner books in order, left to right, and his website for more information: William Kent Krueger

Box and Krueger's characters are family men and are written in such a way, you'd be privileged to call them your friend and neighbor.

Happy Reading!
