My goodness! C.J. Box uses some of my favorite authors for epigraphs. But I suppose it’s appropriate. There’s Cormac McCarthy and Don DeLillo and Bob Dylan and Annie Proulx – along with some I’m not familiar with like Thomas McGuane.

#16 in the Joe Pickett series
Other than that he’s not a favorite author. His books seem to follow the same general plot line with lots of chasing and shooting on the desert or in the high forest areas. These are great for naturalists who want a good action book. The characters stay true to form throughout the long series.
This time … (from Audible) “Nate Romanowski is off the grid, recuperating from wounds and trying to deal with past crimes, when he is suddenly surrounded by a small team of elite professional special operators. They’re not there to threaten him but to make a deal. They need help destroying a domestic terror cell in Wyoming’s Red Desert, and in return they’ll make Nate’s criminal record disappear. But they are not what they seem, as Nate’s friend Joe Pickett discovers. They have a much different plan in mind, and it just may be something that takes them all down – including Nate and Joe.”
