BADLANDS by C. J. Box


By Theresa de Valence - Posted on 14 July 2016

The first C.J. Box I read, THE HIGHWAY, I found riveting. Naturally, I dashed out to the library and snapped up BADLANDS ©2015, the next in the series.

BADLANDS is even better, but don’t start here because the long story (with recurring characters) is much richer.

Twelve year old Kyle Westergaard dreams of getting out of Grimstad, but he witnesses something dangerous. Grimstad is having an oil boom, so there’s no housing for love or money. With money comes drugs and criminals, headaches for new Deputy Sheriff Cassie Dewell.

I inhaled this story.

I built a Cast of Characters for BADLANDS because I often do and it is attached on the page on my website for this review. Click the link below, then click the attachement to download. (Use the Contact Form at the top of the web page to report any difficulties).

A day or two after I’d finished this immensely satisfying story, a copy of BADLANDS ©2015 by C.J. Box arrived in the mail, courtesy of the publisher. So I’m holding another giveaway. Please add a comment to this review here on my website, for your chance to win. We’ll toss the names in a hat.
