Kimber: Hey Mom! You know that author guy we stumbled upon a while back? The box-y dude who writes crime thrillers set in Wyoming?
Mom: “You mean C.J. Box?”
Kimber: Yeppers! Didya know he has a new book out?
… And that’s how Her Momness and I flew over to the library faster than Captain Kirk aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise. Here’s what we found:
It’s early spring in Wyoming. State Game Warden Joe Pickett is facing the mother of all storms in C.J. Box’s latest crime thriller western, Storm Watch. And we don’t mean just the blizzard kind, either. No siree, Lassie! Although there’s enough snow and ice and freezing temps in this taut and tightly written novel to make you want to toss another log on the fire. Maybe two.
Well. The Cowboy State is about to get hit by an “apocalyptic blizzard” in more ways than one.
Kimber: The title has a double meaning, if you get my drift. As in snow drift. Also deep doo-doo of the political type “drift.”
