THE BITTERROOTS by C.J. Box is the follow-up to Paradise Valley the fourth book in “The Highway Quartet” series that began with the late Cody Hoyt (still mad at the author about his demise!), and continued with Cassie Dewell, a strong and capable woman who is able to excel in her position despite having to withstand the “good ole’ boys” prevalent in both the law enforcement agencies and pretty much everywhere ...more

Private Detective Cassie Dewell is a strong character. She doesn’t back down and persists until she gets answers to her questions. Men don’t often do a good job of writing women characters, but C.J. Box does okay with her. He even manages to make her teen-aged son realistic—not totally obnoxio ...more

“Lawyers and accountants had made their careers representing different factions of the third generation because the legal battles often went on for decades it was the nastiest kind of war: brother vs brother, sister vs sister.”

I read Box because I live in the mountain west and he gets it right; because every book has -- along with crime, depravity and suspense -- solid family ties at its heart; and now because he's one of a very small number of male writers who can create convincing female protagonists.

This is the first book I've read by this author and I was not disappointed. It is the 4th book in a series about a female private investigator, Cassie Dewell. (I will have to add the first 3 books to my TBR list).
Cassie is hired by an attorney to look into the arrest of a man named Blake Kleinsasser. Blake is accused of assaulting his niece on the family ranch. Cassie heads into ...more

A book that will make you forget your bedtime!
I'd seen him around, but this was my first C. J. Box. It's part of a series focused on PI Cassie, but I dove in with book #4 and felt that worked fine. Cassie's called to investigate a case against Blake, the oldest son of a prominent ranch family. She doesn't want to take the job (working for his defense) but agrees to give the evidence against him a sniff test.
Sounds pretty mellow so far, ...more
With this Cassie Dewell book, I found myself reliving the Lizard King story as I was falling asleep — especially when the big rig rolled into Bozeman — and that wasn’t even a focal point of this story. But it was so chilling when I first read that novel that when I see a black rig on t ...more
There's a great sense of place here, with the Montana mountains and the fires they experience playing a role that was unexpected (at least it was to this New Englander, who only hears a lot about the California wildfi ...more
As a former law enforcement officer, Cassie doesn’t want to work for a defense attorney. Especially on a case where a man has been arrested for raping his 15-year-old niece. However, Rachel assures Cassie she doesn’t have to dig up exculpatory evidence, but just to follow the trail where it leads. "Assure me that there are no holes in the case," the lawyer says, "and I'll talk my client into a plea deal."
