Cephalopod Coffeehouse: May 2018


Cephalopod Coffeehouse: May 2018




It is time, once again, to recommend a book that you've read this month. 
Hosted by Armchair Squid he says: 
Welcome one and all to the Cephalopod Coffeehouse, a cozy gathering of book lovers, meeting to discuss their thoughts regarding the works they enjoyed most over the previous month.  Pull up a chair, order your cappuccino and join in the fun.  If you wish to add your own review to the conversation, please sign on to the link list at the end of my post.

I would like to recommend a book by C.J. Box.  It is the 14th in this series but it can also be read as a stand-alone novel.  I have enjoyed all of the Joe Picket series of books and it's great to follow someone as they grow older and their family dynamics change as the children grow up. 


Here is the blurb about the book: 

Everything about the man is a mystery...
No one knows where he came from, how he made his money or what's drawn him to the isolated Black Hills of North Wyoming. His generosity has won the locals over, but are his motives above suspicion?
After a string of disappearances, Joe Pickett isn't the first investigator to pursue this enigmatic millionaire, but will he be the first to leave alive? With winter's first storm closing in, Joe's about to discover there's a stone-cold killer stalking the hills – and he's not alone.

MY REVIEW
4*

Joe is sent to Black Hills Wyoming to investigate (on the quiet) a mysterious millionaire.  What he finds in the small community is worrying.  Alongside this plot is a subplot of his family (wife and three daughters) and an old friend.  There is some violence in the book but it fits in with the story line.   It's a pacy, thrilling read with some great characters. 

The author certainly knows how to write.
