It has become a very happy yearly tradition, every March. Spring is springing and a new Joe Pickett book arrives. Such a welcome return that with each visit brings something new, I’m hooked and happy again. As readable as ever, I feel a genuine pang of happiness to be reunited with these characters – and this is the 16th book in the series! If you’ve not come across the Pickett books before, do get it sorted. You won’t regret it.

Delighted to find out that Joe Pickett is returning in March 2015, with Endangered

I loved the Pickett series by CJ Box, and smashed through it in a heartbeat earlier this year. The last book, Stone Cold, was superb, and on the last page I was gutted and counting down the days until an announcement.

CJ Box is for sure a huge influence of mine, in how he has combined style and suspense with enduring characters and whip-cracking stories.
