it was ok
bookshelves: mystery, fiction
Read in September, 2009

I like CJ Box. Savage Run and Winterkill were both good pot boilers that showed him becoming a better writer in this genre. Trophy Hunt I felt was a step back. There was a weirdness to the story that just didn't fit. It was like taking part of a slasher film and transplanting it to a Joe Pickett book. Or maybe an X-Files to a Joe Pickett book. It just didn't quite work. Also the whole metaphysical stuff with Nate didn't make a whole lot of sense and found myself skipping those paragraphs. CJ went back to being predictable. And the whole kid thing needs to end. I don't want to say anything because it give away the end. It was ok. That is all I can say about the book.

Daniel I agree. I just finished Trophy Hunt and felt it was more X-Files then Joe Pickett.
