BOOK REVIEW

BLOOD TRAIL by C.J. Box
MYSTERY THRILLER

"More of a western than a mystery, like most of Joe's adventures, and all the better for the open physical clashes that periodically release the tension between the scheming adversaries."

BOOK REVIEW

SHOTS FIRED by C.J. Box

BOOK REVIEW

OFF THE GRID by C.J. Box
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: March 8, 2016

"Even though you just know Box isn't going to put an end to his highly successful franchise by blowing his lead characters to kingdom come, you can't help turning the pages and holding your breath until you find out where this scary, all-too-plausible caravan is heading."

BOOK REVIEW

NOWHERE TO RUN by C.J. Box
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: April 6, 2010

BOOK REVIEW

BOOK REVIEW

WORLD WAR I INTERACTIVE by Touchzing Media
IPAD BOOK APPS
Released: April 16, 2013

"An unsatisfactory app that treats history less like David McCullough and more like USA Today."
This uninspired and often pedantic chronicle of one of the 20th century's cruelest moments consistently fails to take advantage of exciting media. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

STONE COLD by C.J. Box
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: March 11, 2014

"Suspenseful yet routine, with oversized bogeymen who seem more menacing than they really are, ethical dilemmas that dissolve under pressure and an ending that tests your tolerance for coincidence. Below average for this splendid yet checkered series."
Joe Pickett's fantastical 14th pits him against a nest of assassins that just happens to include his old pal Nate Romanowski. Read full book review >
