In my case, no active participation was necessary. Not until now.
How gracious. It sounds like a payoff, Mr. A payoff from a man with a guilty conscience. Nor can money make up for what he did—not to me, but to my mother. If she knew more, she might feel differently. You can do a lot with that sum of money, Miss Hall, including anything you choose to do for your mother.
She was still gripped by questions and suppressed fury. She was also a realist—like her father. She knew Leland was right. Think it over—all of it. Spend the night. Consider your options.

Look it over. See what you think. If anything, I preferred this to her impressive debut and am now well and truly settled in for a gripping and entertaining series. What impressed me most here was the quality of the writing, particularly the dialogue which is pitch-perfect throughout and absolutely crackles in places. The central character, DC Cat Kinsella, is a feisty pitbull-cum-kitten, a survivor of a dysfunctional family upbringing, an impulsive child seemingly incapable of staying within the constraints of her professional responsibilities but driven on by a seething sense of injustice and a desperate need for approval.
The relationship between her and her immediate superior Parnell, who provides the steadiness and loyalty she so desperately wants from her father, is beautifully observed and the first person narrative allows us to explore all of Cat's complexities from a privileged close-up vantage point.
It might not have worked in less skilled hands but the author has a terrific ear for dialogue which is delivered with sharp humour and unerring accuracy.
The plotting is elaborate but controlled and anyone claiming as so many readers like to do that they'd worked it all out long before the halfway stage is surely being more than a little disingenuous. It's one thing to decide who killed Naomi yes -I managed that!
It's quite another to untangle the threads which eventually explain why. Caz Frear releases everything we need to know at exactly the right time and it's all there if we know where to look for it - no remarkable coincidences, no implausible coup de theatre, just plain, old-fashioned attention to detail.
I have a list of authors whose next book I will download at the earliest opportunity and Caz Frear has just joined it. Stone Cold Heart is yet another fabulous story written with style, humour and great skill.
Caz Frear has created a simply wonderful, believable, flawed character in Cat Kinsella. A young DC eager to escape her family background, hiding a secret which threatens to end her career before it's even taken off. The game wardens I have known never ever have this kind of day.
One person found this helpful. It is almost as if Box was following a word delimited formula. He set up a great plot, an intriguing sub-plot, and some potential conflict between compelling characters - including Whip and NR. Then, suddenly he realized he had used too many words to set everything up and directed the story-line down hill to a rapid conclusion.
This was structurally unsatisfying. The resolution of the situation between NR and Whip -- big gun vs.
The resolution of the sub-plot was too rapid and left too many questions unanswered, it was actually a bit silly in its details. And what was the fallout of what happened in Medicine Wheel County?
This has been a weakness of Box throughout this series. He is excellent at the setup, but when it comes time to resolve everything and tie it all together he often does it too rapidly and with details that are incomplete and puzzling. Typically this is OK, not great but OK. In this case his rapid conclusion, lack of attention to completing the plot and sub-plot and explaining what the final resolution was just about ruined the whole book.
The title of this review is a profound statement attributed to Yogi Berra. It came to mind as I finished this book. Up to about the eighty percent mark on my Kindle I thought this book was strong, excellent indeed. Then, the basic premise on which the book is apparently based became clear, whereas it was lurking in the background before. The last twenty percent was just a weak rendition of a theme that had already been worn out by scores of writers.
Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett must be the most heroic game warden in all of Fiction Land. In this novel author C.
Box has Pickett investigate a super-rich man who likes to fund the murders of really bad guys who have managed to escape punishment because they "lawyered up" and beat the system. So, Pickett ends up in a remote corner of the state conducting a special investigation at the request of his friend, the governor.
The investigation centers on a county that had, decades before, been booming because of rich mineral resources.
But the resources have long since been depleted, and it seems that the remaining population consists of dullard thugs and corrupt law enforcement. These folks like to hunt, fish, and tool around the rough terrain in their four-wheel drive pickups.
They gulp their booze. In the middle of all of this the aforementioned gazillionaire has established his base of operations after downloading up much of the county.
Box is a master of characterization. His settings sparkle with realism. I do not hesitate to recommend this book based on everything except the last several chapters.
