"Private Investigator Cassie Dewell's business is thriving, and her latest case puts her on the hunt for a slippery con man who's disappeared somewhere in the "treasure state." A wealthy Florida widow has accused him of absconding with her fortune, and wants Cassie to find him and get it back. The trail takes Cassie to Anaconda, Montana, a quirky former copper mining town that's the perfect place to reinvent yourself. As the case develops, Cassie begins to wonder if her client is telling her everything. On top of that, Cassie is also working what's easily one of her strangest assignments ever. A poem that promises buried treasure to one lucky adventurer has led to a cutthroat competition and five deaths among treasure-hunters. But Cassie's client doesn't want the treasure. Instead, he claims to be the one who hid the gold and wrote the poem. And he's hired Cassie to try to find him. Between the two cases, Cassie has her hands full. In Montana, a killer view can mean more than just the scenery, and Cassie knows much darker things hide behind the picturesque landscape of Big Sky Country. Treasure State, C. J. Box's highly anticipated follow-up to The Bitterroots, is full of more twists and turns than the switchbacks through the Anaconda Range"-- Provided by publisher.

*Starred Review* Montana is known not only as Big Sky Country but also as the Treasure State. It has lots of killer viewsâliterally, for Cassie Dewell. Cassie's PI business is booming, and she finds herself working two cases simultaneously. One involves tracking down a seductive con man who has defrauded wealthy women out of millions, and the other concerns identifying the writer of a poem being circulated about a buried treasure. Everyone loves a treasure hunt, but five people have died on this one. Cassie spends a lot of time behind the wheel, as a "short drive" in Montana is anything under two hours. There are some seriously bad guys and a handful of good guys involved, and Box's descriptions are vivid, as always, including that of a man whose "steel-toed work boots were the size of small dogs." Cassie's idea of "dressed up" is a black suit paired with highly polished red cowboy boots. The action is subdued, but the tension runs high. Cassie calls in all of her markers to make sure she is just a phone call away from back-up. This is her sixth outing, following The Bitterroots (2019), and the best yet. When not appearing on the printed page, she can be found on ABC in a television adaptation called Big Sky, recently renewed for a third season, with the author as executive producer.
