Author CJ Box joins KGWN to talk about new book

By  | 

Cheyenne, Wyo. - Cheyenne resident and best-selling author, CJ Box, stopped by the CBS NewsChannel 5 studios to talk about his latest book, Vicious Circle.

His seventeenth Pickett novel, “Vicious Circle” will be released on Tuesday March 21. It wraps up some loose threads from a previous novel, and as they say, the chickens have come home to roost for Wyoming Game Warden Joe Pickett..

The book begins with an aerial search for a missing man, and Joe inadvertently witnessing a man’s murder. As he begins to investigate the crime, an old family adversary returns to his community of Saddlestring, Dallas Cates. Those familiar with the previous books will recognize the threat of a man with the Cates last name and what it could spell for the Pickett family.

“Vicious Circle” is a fast and fun read, and a genuine must-have for any Wyoming resident (or anyone who loves a good Western Thriller). You can read Chapter One of “Vicious Circle” here:

Also, congratulations are due to CJ, who is the winner of a 2017 Spur Award for Best Contemporary Novel, for his last Joe Pickett novel “Off The Grid.”
