C.J. Box is the winner of the Anthony Award, Prix Calibre 38 (France), the Macavity Award, the Gumshoe Award, the Barry Award, and the Edgar Award. He is also a New York Times bestseller. He lives in Wyoming.
'Box is not only an exemplary writer of crime novels; he is also a
rancher, hunter and guide to the outback. As this might suggest,
his work sports a vibrant response to countryside and nature'
'After a heart-in-mouth opening sequence, you're along for the ride across North Dakota and Montana and into the heart of an American nightmare. Breathtakingly good' The Sunday Times Crime Club Star Pick.
'The gripping plot soon makes it difficult to take a break for reasons other than a house fire or other major emergency, and the final pages produce a satisying conclusion. It's great stuff' Crime Review.
