Cody Hoyt, while a brilliant cop, is an alcoholic struggling with two months of sobriety when his mentor and AA sponsor Hank Winters is found burned to death in a remote mountain cabin. At first it looks like the suicide of a man who's fallen off the wagon, but Cody knows Hank better than that. Sober for fourteen years, Hank took pride in his hard-won sobriety and never hesitated to drop whatever he was doing to talk Cody off a ledge. When Cody takes a closer look at the scene of his friend's death, it becomes apparent that foul play is at hand. After years of bad behavior with his department, he's in no position to be investigating a homicide, but this man was a friend and Cody's determined to find his killer.

Even though this is not a Joe Pickett novel, it is by far my favorite C.J. Box novel. The action is there right from the start, with about as much excitement as you can handle. Also love the character development, and the description of the scenery puts you right there! Brilliant writer.

This book is interesting right from the first sentence. I loved the Yellowstone setting. Author used enough description that allowed me to visualize the landscape, but not so much that I was skipping it.

-**-. Wow! What a great story. .-**- I don't want to say more because I don't want to spoil this wonderful book. At one point, late at night, I felt goosebumps rise. I wanted to wake my wife up to pull me out of what I was feeling. The only other time I actually did this was staying up all night to read THE SHINING long ago. This book has its own echo of sheer of terror. Well done C.J.

This is a very good read even if you don't like Cody Hoyt. This time he is out looking for his son who is on an adventure, Many twists and turns. I enjoyed this book.

C J Box is THE scribe of the current crop of murder mystery writers, where his contemporaries have all largely flamed out, Box continues to deliver one solid sender after another. This may be his most ambitious novel yet and kept me guessing to the LAST page! Really! There is no differentiating Joe Pickett stories from his "one-offs", all of his books satisfy, though maybe the "free standing" stories offer more latitude for trying out new ideas. I'll keep reading his every new work until the cows come home and I hope they're all WAY out on the North 40!
