New Favorite - C.J. Box

Don't you love it when someone recommends an author that leads you to discover a whole new series? C.J. Box has become one of my new favorite authors. Nowhere to Run features Joe Pickett, a Wyoming game warden. The book starts as Pickett is finishing up a year in exile in Southern Wyoming. He heads out on his last patrol through the area before returning home to his family. When he comes across a pair of twin brothers living off the land, things start to get dangerous. Box gives a wonderful description of the Wind River Range as both beautiful and menacing. Nowhere to Run is the 10th in the series, but it works well as a stand alone novel. Pickett is an engaging hero and I'm looking forward to reading everything in the series. Open Season is the first book and Cold Wind, the 11th, has just been released.
