J. The electrifying new Joe Pickett novel from the New York Times bestselling author. Everything about the man is a mystery: the massive ranch in the remote Black Hills of Wyoming that nobody ever visits, the women who live with him, the secret philanthropies, the private airstrip, the sudden disappearances. And especially the persistent rumors that the man’s wealth comes from killing people. It is elk season in the Rockies, but this year a different kind of hunter is stalking a different kind of prey. When the call comes in on the radio, Joe Pickett can hardly believe his ears: game wardens have found a hunter dead at a camp in the mountains; strung up, gutted, and flayed, as if he were the elk he'd been pursuing. A spent cartridge and a poker chip lie next to his body.

Joe Pickett is the new game warden in Twelve Sleep, Wyoming, a town where nearly everyone hunts and the game warden--especially one like Joe who won't take bribes or look the other way--is far from popular. When he finds a local hunting outfitter dead, splayed out on the woodpile behind his state-owned home, he takes it personally. There had to be a reason that the outfitter, with whom he's had run-ins before, chose his backyard, his woodpile to die in. Even after the "outfitter murders," as they have been dubbed by the local press after the discovery of the two more bodies, are solved, Joe continues to investigate, uneasy with the easy explanation offered by the local police.

As Joe digs deeper into the murders, he soon discovers that the outfitter brought more than death to his backdoor: he brought Joe an endangered species, thought to be extinct, which is now living in his woodpile. But if word of the existence of this endangered species gets out, it will destroy any chance of InterWest, a multi-national natural gas company, building an oil pipeline that would bring the company billions of dollars across Wyoming, through the mountains and forests of Twelve Sleep. The closer Joe comes to the truth behind the outfitter murders, the endangered species and InterWest, the closer he comes to losing everything he holds dear.

I've heard CJ Box speak several times at the Tucson Festival of Books and I've always found him interesting and his books intriguing sounding but..... I've put off reading them because the series is so looong and knowing myself well, once I read one I want to read them all -- in order! So I started with one I thought was a standalone, The Highway, just to discover it wasn't exactly. But what can I say, I was hooked, so I started searching the used stores and yard sales and good deals online and here I am reading Joe Pickett and loving it.
I think CJ's writing is clear and easy to follow, just enough detail to paint a clear and usually beautiful picture. I never once wanted to say, "C'mon, just get on with it!" I like that Joe loves his family, almost desperately, and wants the best for his girls (including his wife) and feels bad (maybe even inadequate) when he can't give them all that he wants to. I like that he is a real human being with flaws and weaknesses. (Perfect people who do everything easily and correctly every time get tiresome in a hurry.)
So I think this love affair with CJ Box books is going to be long and lots of fun.....

After reading Craig Johnson and Tony Hillerman, I’m happy to have discovered another strong western series. Open Season introduces readers to Joe Pickett, Wyoming game warden, husband, and father. When little Sheridan Pickett discovers a monster in her family’s back yard, her father and her family become embroiled in a mystery that is almost more than they can handle. Almost.

C. J. Box’s prose is easy and comfortable as a well-worn saddle, and as gripping an experience as any mystery lover could desire. Halfway through, Open Season becomes unputdownable.

Recommended.

A friend recommended C.J. Box to me recently so I took his advice and purchased Open Season. I thank him for endorsing C.J. Box.

Joe Pickett is a new Wyoming Game & Fish Warden. He is conscientious and a stand up family man. He finds himself caught in a rivalry between the incumbent sheriff and a rival and threatened by others who will do anything to make conditions right for construction of a pipeline though the county.

Suspense escalates as a group of outfitters are shot and killed in a conflict with law enforcement. The blame is placed on a certain deputy but when Joe isn't satisfied and determines to dig deep for answers his efforts are blocked by greedy, self-interested power brokers. One of the killings takes place in Joe's backyard. It seems his oldest daughter is a witness and she has a secret and it could be a deadly secret.

This is my first book by C.J. Box but it won't be my last. I'm convinced he will become a new favorite.

THIS is going to be interesting. J. C. Box and his man, Joe Pickett, an engaging straight arrow from Wyoming, are new to me, but they succeeded in “Open Season”, their first outing, to make me lose sleep. As Joe got deeper and deeper into his first adventure I found myself actually worrying about him in the middle of the night. I had to make a conscious effort to remember that This Is Just A Book. It’s that good. The action covers Joe’s investigation of two deaths at a hunting camp far back in the Bighorn Mountains. He is the newly assigned Game Warden for Twelve Sleep County. Matters are greatly complicated by local politics, in particular, the possible impact of the Endangered Species Act on plans to run a gas pipeline through the area. It sounds like a peculiar peg to hang a mystery on, but Mr. Box does a beautiful job. He is helped by making everyone Joe runs into either unpleasant or nasty or both. A dandy book, and it has since been followed by at least seven more.

The Joe Pickett series is a big favorite in my family. I discovered this series about 5 years ago and proceeded read all of the books in order and now eagerly await the next. I introduced the series to my husband, brother, father and father-in-law and they are equally engaged in the series. The reason that the series is so compelling is because Joe Pickett is just an ordinary human. He has good intentions, but things frequently go wrong for him, just as they do for many of us. He is a noble man, ethical to a fault and deeply devoted to his family. He is also stubborn and sometimes lets his sense of justice/vengeance get in the way of his common sense. His wife and daughters are also fully developed participants in the story. Box's plotting is deft, drawing the reader in and creating a sense of anxiety that can only be relieved by reaching the end. I have stayed up way to late reading a Joe Pickett book on may occasions.

The main character of this book is refreshing. Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett is a genuine nice guy. Honest, loyal, sometimes a little clueless, as nice guys often are. He is in love with his wife and crazy about his daughters. As a game warden, he cares about animals and the environment, but he is no extremist. This nice, easygoing sweetheart of a guy winds up at the center of a horrendous crime which jeopardizes his family and his own life. In the stunning, wide open ranges of Wyoming, Joe Pickett is up to the challenge. He puts everything on the line to protect his family, shelter an endangered species and take down vicious criminals. Joe Pickett is a remarkable hero and I look forward to,reading more books about him.

The first Joe Pickett novel I read was Endangered, number 15 of the 17 books in the series published to date. It wasn't until I read a couple more of the later published novels that I realized that they were best read in sequence because Joe and his wife Marybeth mature, their daughters grow up, characters come and go and change, and events in the earlier books pave the way for things that happen in later books. The earlier books bring a history to the later ones. I wasn't sure that I could get into a book about a Wyoming game warden; I have no interest in hunting or fishing. But, the descriptions of Joe Pickett's day-to-day tasks, and the descriptions of the land, the forests, the mountains, the seasons, bring substance to the stories. These are stories of an honorable man in a less than perfect world. He is a bit of a square, but that adds to his charm.
