5.0 out of 5 stars Good foundation for CJ Box "Joe Pickett" Novel series- Start here!
By Heloflyer on October 28, 2018
Having read through several authors series(Lee Child-Jack Reacher, Robert Parker-Spencer, James Lee Burke-Robicheaux, Henning Mankill-Wallender) I have learned that you have to go to the first introduction of the character and sequentially learn the character. With all of these authors, the location seems to act like a third character, shaping the tone for the novels. Kurt Wallander would not fit in Wyoming, but Joe Pickett is brought to life in the rugged territory where he is a game warden. You need that vast landscape to really understand just how alone he is with a pickup, a badge and a pistol facing down whatever comes his way. Like all the other authors mentioned, this first book lays out the landscape and introduces the character who is indelibly human, but asked to walk in alone and face a murder suspect with no backup. The weather often shapes his world with blizzards, torrential rains and his landscape is often unchanged from what it was hundreds of years ago. The story introduces Joe Pickett, his family and a circle of other lawmen which form the foundation of the books to come. This story involves a dead outfitter, who he finds laid out on his woodpile. There is also a rumor of an endangered species, which is right in his jurisdiction. What follows is a fast paced read that takes you on horseback and mountain trails with the inevitable final gunfight you have in all westerns. I am just starting this series and it doesn't take long to get hooked. (On book 3 now) I would recommend this series to anyone that enjoys outdoor sports such as hunting, fishing, riding, camping and pretty much anything you would love to do in Wyoming.
