It's a good, but not great book by C. J. Box. On about page 70, I remember thinking, "When is the story going to start?" Up to that point it was just filler. Finally the story began and it was good until the end. The conclusion was very unsatisfying and not like all the other Joe Pickett books where truth and justice prevail. It would have been a perfect read if Box had deleted the first 70 pages and added them to the end with a great ending.
