Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Cody Hoyt, while a brilliant cop, is an alcoholic struggling with two months of sobriety when his mentor and AA sponsor Hank Winters is found burned to death in a remote mountain cabin. At first it looks like the suicide of a man who's fallen off the wagon, but Cody knows Hank better than that. Sober for fourteen years, Hank took pride in his hard-won sobriety and never hesitated to drop whatever he was doing to talk Cody off a ledge. When Cody takes a closer look at the scene of his friend's death, it becomes apparent that foul play is at hand. After years of bad behavior with his deparment, he's in no position to be investigating a homicide, but this man was a friend and Cody's determined to find his killer.

    Box built his reputation with his ongoing series about Joe Pickett, a Wyoming game warden who's a bad shot and a good guy. But stand-alone thrillers have given Box room to experiment. His third features a cop, Cody Hoyt, who is everything Pickett is not. An alcoholic smoker with a short fuse, Hoyt has left his previous jobs and his family in shambles. When his AA sponsor is murdered, however, his stubborn single-mindedness may just be his saving grace. The trail leads Hoyt, decidedly not an outdoorsman, into the Yellowstone backcountry, where others are in danger—and for a surprising reason. Part of the fun here is seeing Box take familiar elements from his other fiction and rework them into something different. The plot is a bit more tangled than in his standout stand-alone, Blue Heaven (2008), and the role played by Cody's distrustful partner, Larry, doesn't quite work as well as it could. But it's still terrifically entertaining stuff that comes together with a bang in the end. We almost hate to say this, but Hoyt has series potential, too. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Box is big news—and with a 125,000-copy first printing, a 10-city tour, and a major marketing push, this book will do business. Copyright 2011 Booklist Reviews.
