Immensely satisfying

The first C.J. Box I read, THE HIGHWAY, I found riveting. Naturally, I dashed out to the library and snapped up BADLANDS ©2015, the next in the series.

BADLANDS is even better, but don’t start here because the long story (with recurring characters) is much richer.

As pipelines snake across the prairie, oil flows out and men and money flow in. And with them, comes crime. North Dakota's new oil capital has a serious law and order problem and newly-qualified detective Cassie Dewell has just been assigned as its deputy sheriff. Twelve-year-old Kyle Westergaard is one of Grimstad's paperboys. Even though Kyle has been written off as the "slow" kid, he has dreams deeper than anyone can imagine -- he wants to get out of town, take care of his alcoholic mother, and give them a better life. While delivering newspapers, he witnesses a car accident and now has money and a lot of white powder in his possession. With the temperature dropping to 30 below and a gang war heating up, Cassie fears she might be in over her head but the key to it all will come in the most unlikely form: an undersized boy on a bike who keeps showing up where he doesn't belong."@en ;
