Stone Cold is a bone-chilling page turner in C.J. Box’s Joe Pickett series. Game Warden Joe Pickett is sent to northeastern Wyoming, deep in the Black Hills, on assignment from Governor Rulon and the FBI to investigate a wealthy rancher who may be involved in businesses beyond ranching and cattle. Joe unexpectedly meets up with his friend Nate Romanowski and questions remain about which side of the law Nate operates on.
In typical C.J. Box style, Stone Cold has a strong sense of place and the plot moves quickly. There are questions of legal justice vs. moral justice intertwined with memorable characters and a lot of snow.
I think one sign of a great book is the reader doesn’t want it to end. Once again, C.J. Box provided many hours of enjoyment and I was sorry when the book ended. The good news is Stone Cold introduced many new plot lines and I’m anxious to know where C.J. Box takes takes us next. ~Enjoy~
