This book marks my first title from C.J. Box that I've read. I understand COLD WIND marks the 11th novel where Joe Pickett, the game warden is the central character. From the opening scene until the final page, I was captivated with this story and I turned the pages as fast as I could to find out what was going to happen next in this thriller. I can see why C.J. Box has such a roaring fan club and I've joined their ranks after seeing his storytelling craft in this book. I'll be backtracking to read the earlier novels then waiting for the next one.
This story has plenty of unexpected twists and turns with excellent characterizations, dialogue and it is set in the unpredictable west. C.J. Box wrote a page-turner with COLD WIND. I recommend it.
