I agree with the majority of comments about this book--I am a huge C.J. Box fan but this book was not what I expected-too grisly, and attempting to get us to know the mind of a serial killer--who cares, suffice it to say these people are demented. I was looking forward to reading the book, but had to put it aside after the first chapter. Bring back more Joe Pickett books--good stories, but they have family values also. As one comment said--give this one a miss.

Has to be the best C. J. Box book I've ever read! With a shocking plot twist partway thru, it was fast-paced, well-written & a complete revelation! I read it in two days, it was THAT good!!

CJ Bix Fans - Don't bother with this one

Not only not CJ's best works, it is at the absolute bottom IMHO

Maybe it's because he is trying to get into the head of a criminal low-life rather than an LEO, or maybe he was rushed to meet a deadline. Either way the pace was horrible, there were WTF moments every couple of pages

The King trys to stay out of WA, OR and CA, yet one anchor of his circuit is Yakima WA?

What mother would let two teen age girls go on an Interstate trip - alone - without insisting that the car had a checkup first?

"She crossed her arms ove her breasts" Where else would she cross them? Behind her back?

and on, and on, and on

This was the first book I read by C.J. Box, and now I am going to go get more . I thought it was a good read, finished it in two days.

Not one of C J Box' best, but you have to admire a writer who takes the risks that he has in this book. Enough said... any more would be a spoiler.

This is a very intense and grisly book. Definitely not for the squemish. The plot is an exact copy of William Kent Krueger;s "Copper River" althought Krueger is no where near as graphic. Just a cautionary word of dvice.

This book desperately needed a good editor. It is wordy with too much unnecessary detail.There are many other good books worth your reading time. This book is not one of them.

No place near my favorite from Box; an unexpected and disconcerting plot twist about halfway through left a bad taste in my mouth.

Generally, I really enjoy CJ Box. Unfortunately, this is my least fav. Can't say why without spoilers...
