Firstly, I'd like to say I've read all the jor picket books in order, and where there was one book in the series that was perhaps a little weaker that the others, this one actually ranks amongst the best.
CJ Box has a relaxed writing style and develops the characters well. In this one, Joe Pickett, the local game warden, becomes involved in a case where wildlife and farm animals are being mutliated. Of course, all sorts of wild theories abound, but Joe thinks it's much more simple. In fact, it isn't more simple and the plot bounds along at a good pace.
Don't want to give too much away from the plot, but I find the quicker I read a book, the more I've enjoyed it. This one I read very quickly and didn't want it to finish. It's an excellent read, aand if you haven't trieda CJ Box novel, then tried this one, or Blue Heaven, which is also excellent. It's one of those books to wrap up warm with and emerge yourself in.
