Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "For three years, Investigator Cassie Dewell has been on a hunt for a serial killer known as The Lizard King. He works as a long haul trucker. His prey are the "lot lizard" prostitutes who frequent truck stops. And she almost caught him...once. Working for the Bakken County, North Dakota sheriff's department, Cassie has set what she believes is the perfect trap and she has lured him and his truck to a depot. Standing by, ready to close the net are half a dozen undercover officers, including Cassie's fiance Ian. But the plan goes horribly wrong, and the blame falls to Cassie. Disgraced, she loses her job and investigation into her role is put into motion. At the same time, Kyle Westergaard, a troubled kid whom Cassie has taken under her wing, has disappeared, telling everyone he is going on a long-planned adventure. Kyle's grandmother begs Cassie to find him and with nothing else to do, she agrees--all the while planning a new trap for The Lizard King. But Cassie is now a lone wolf. And in the same way that two streams converge into a river, Kyle's disappearance may have a more sinister meaning than anyone realizes. With no allies, no support, and only her own wits to rely on, Cassie must take down a killer who is as ruthless as he is cunning. But can she do it alone, without losing her own humanity or her own life?"--

    Though this one is billed as a stand-alone, Box fans will have a hard time not seeing it as part of a miniseries that began with Cody Hoyt in Back of Beyond (2011) and The Highway (2013) and then continued as Cody's partner, Cassie Dewell, took center stage in the excellent Badlands (2015). Dewell, chief investigator of the Bakken County Sheriff's Department in North Dakota, is still chasing truck-driving serial killer Ronald Pergram, aka the Lizard King, and thinks she's closing in as the book opens. When her initial effort is derailed, she finds herself off the force, tracking a couple of missing kids (one of them Kyle Westergaard, another returning character) without knowing the cases are linked together. Cassie is a great character—dogged yet self-doubting—and, in the Lizard King, Box has a villain well worthy of bringing back here. While the ending doesn't quite equal the breathless, thunderous climaxes he's given us before, Box deftly delivers page-turning suspense. Readers who couldn't put down Badlands will definitely want to pick this one up. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: With a 250,000-copy print run, a national one-day laydown, and a 12-city author tour, libraries had better have multiple copies of Paradise Valley on the shelf.
