'Plenty of action. For an obdurate foe and scary risks to the hero, Vicious Circle is hard to beat' Crime Review. 'C.J. Box is always impressive for the economy with which he places the reader into the world of the mountains ... the characters never come across as less than convincing, and there is plenty of action. For an obdurate foe and scary risks to the hero, Vicious Circle is hard to beat' Crime Review. 'Box deserves to become more appreciated here ... [He] paints a vivid picture of small-town feuds amid Wyoming's wide-open spaces' The Times. 'Box is deservedly getting a name for his Pickett books ... pacy plots, an unusual setting and strong characterisations' Sun. 'The characters are well drawn and the action is frenetic' TripFiction. 'Strong stuff, very well written' The Listener. 'Grips from beginning to end ... The detailed descriptions of the wild terrain of Wyoming brought the scenery vividly to life ... This is the first time I have met Joe Pickett and look forward to reading more about him. A great read' Promoting Crime. 'A masterful storyteller who writes sublimely about Wyoming's wild beauty, C.J. Box screws up the tension unbearably' Irish Independent. 'It has everything you could want: sharp, well-drawn characters, crystalline prose and a narrative that winds more and more tightly, until it's coiled to spring an explosive conclusion ... C.J. Box is a sharp, compelling writer. And one to recommend to reluctant readers and thriller devotees alike' Better Reading. 'The unexpected, suspenseful turns will keep readers enthralled. Another winner for Box' Library Journal, starred review. 'We've noted previously how the fully fleshed family dynamic is one of this series' enduring strengths, and that pays dividends here as we viscerally feel Joe's fear for his loved ones and his powerlessness to protect them. Box masterfully tightens the suspense until we're caught in a vicious circle of our own and unable to stop reading' Booklist. 'This outing is the most suspenseful yet in this world-class series, setting a new standard for Box' Publishers Weekly, starred review. 'Bracingly familiar pleasures expertly packaged ... first-timers will be intrigued and fans amply rewarded' Kirkus Reviews. 'Heart-stoppingly good' Daily Mail.
