I have read several other books by C.J. Box and have enjoyed them all. The books are always filled with adventure and twists and turns that you don't expect. This book was no exception. It grabs you and keeps you reading from the beginning. Unlike some murder/mystery books, this one was hard to predict. It was a little violent in places, as are all Box's books, but nothing extreme. I love his main character and this is another one of those books you can't put down once you start reading.

It's hard to believe C.J. Box wrote this book

C.J. Box is one of my top 5 authors. I have read all his books and I thought each one was very good to excellent. That said, "Below Zero" was a total bummer. Some of the book was C.J. but most of the book I kept thinking, "I can't believe he wrote this book!" The pl...
C.J. Box is one of my top 5 authors. I have read all his books and I thought each one was very good to excellent. That said, "Below Zero" was a total bummer. Some of the book was C.J. but most of the book I kept thinking, "I can't believe he wrote this book!" The plot was way below zero and the dialog was very childish. Maybe this book would be good if one was in 4th or 5th grade. If this was the first book I had read by this author, I NEVER would have picked up a second one.
So disappointed!

    Have always like CJ Box, but

    This is a pretty mundane novel. I can see why he has branched out to stand alone books. I always buy his books, but I will probably check out from the library from now on

    I Also Recommend:

    Not his best work

    Box is an uneven author. Some of his books (Blue Heaven) shine, others drag. This one drags. The plot feels contrived. What rational lawman would take his daughter on a search for a killer? The set ups are strained, the coincidences unbelieveable.
    All in all not a very good novel. Let's hope his next one improves.
