If you have read my previous reviews on C J Box novels you will know that I am completely enamoured with the guy and in particular his creation Joe Pickett, and while extremely short, this was not disappointing in terms of the story and presentation.

While checking that some 'ice fishermen' have their license's Joe is informed by one of them that there appears to be a glow from underneath the ice in the distance. Joe doesn't particularly like standing on ice with a river running underneath his feet, who does, but slides over to investigate. As he approaches, sure enough there is a glow from under the ice, but there is something else, something sticking up through the ice. It looks like maybe a branch, but as she looks closer he discovers that it is in fact ............

Well no point in me giving away the whole story now is there!

COMMENT

I didn't read any other reviews before buying this, I hardly ever do, as most books I read are either because I have read the free bit on the kindle review page or have been pointed towards the book by someone else who thinks I will like it. When I went back on to the Amazon site to download the photo of the book I noticed that there were two reviews and so I pulled them up and had a look at them and both reviewers on Amazon UK, felt very short changed and for that reason gave it a 1 star rating. I then popped over to Amazon US and there are 18 reviews there, but once again almost without exception everyone is on about being ripped off by both Amazon and the author, do they have a point?

Well that's the big question today isn't it, how much is an authors work worth and how much are you willing to pay for it.

I bought this book in October 2011 for the Kindle when it was first released. At the time, it was not described as a mini-book and the description did not state the number of pages. I feel it was misleading at best and feel cheated by both the author and publisher. The book itself was average and the ending unsatisfactory. The whole thing smacked of a cynical means to exploit money from C.J. Box fans.

Book was about a chapter long. No warning when purchased. Please take more care Amazon when selling e-Books. Great author but seems to be cashing in on his popularity.

Like the previous reviewer, I saw the author CJ Box and immediately purchased. It was the smallest book ever, and certainly not up to normal Joe Pickett- Box standard. Shame on you, whoever thought it was a good idea to charge so much for so little.....

I enjoyed my fist Box/Pickett book a few years ago and get more out of every one. This one is very short but still manages to evoke the atmosphere of winter life in Wyoming. (I've never been, so it's all that I have) I already know what the game warden does and his relationship with his family and Sherriff Lanahan, so I had slipped back to the Twelve Sleep valley by the first page. Unfortunately the last page arrived too soon. Roll on March and the next book

As usual, Joe Pickett solves yet another mystery, this time of the tragic demise of a former first class basket ball player. Joe ought to run for President...there's nothing that gets past him...like a true American, he knows all the answers and wins all the battles, single-handedly...and to think he's just a Game Warden with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. This is a very short story, one that I thought had a lot of potential, but it ended just as I was getting in to it. Very good, nevertheless. This is the fifth book in the series that I've read so far, and have enjoyed every one.

I love Joe pickett, C.J.Box brings him to life, and you feel that you are right by Joe's side in everthing he does. Just not long enough and I get very impatient to read the next story and the trouble he gets into along side his friend Nate.

Really enjoy Joe Pickett stories but a short story just leaves me wanting more. Being a fan of C J Box I have read all his books and this one was a snack book. Good read though.
