Back of Beyond by C. J. Box
Back to my new favourite. Another library book find so will need to reap it, to keep it. It is a stand alone novel but the lead protagonist Detective Cody Hoyt has been in some of the Joe Pickett stories. I loved it!!! It was action packed and had some great twists. Box never disappoints me!! The plot forms around a guided outfitting trip that goes horrifically wrong and basically an abstract treasure hunt.
Highly recommend Box if you like the outdoors and great plot twists.
Additional thoughts: I have been thinking about Back of Beyond and one part is not working for me. It was the murder of one of the characters. I don’t think the plot required it and as a plot device to help Hoyt with his battle with alcoholism it was kind of wasteful. Still loved it but that death was annoying me.
Since I first reviewed this I have reaped it!! YAY
