THRILLER REVIEW: Joe Pickett 17: Vicious Circle - CJ Box

Release Date: 23/03/17
Publisher: Head of Zeus


One man hell-bent on avenging his family,

the other dead-set on protecting his...

Joe Pickett always knew there'd be a day of reckoning. And now that day has come.

Two years ago, his daughter was beaten and dumped by the side of a country road. Joe's determination to avenge her forced him into a catastrophic confrontation with the Cates clan that left three of their number dead and put the two survivors behind bars. Now the youngest son, Dallas, is out of prison and back in town. Joe knows exactly why he's returned – an eye for an eye.

All Joe can do is wait for Dallas to make the first move...


I love it when events from the past come back to haunt a principle character and for me CJ has really worked this revenge thriller well as his principle hero has to withstand the wrath of Dallas Cates whose pulling no punches coming after him and his family.

Its a book that works wonderfully well with cracking prose, top notch pace and of course a principle character that you just love to spend time around. Don't worry if you haven't read the previous book featuring thier last encounter "Endangered" as CJ presents an overview for the reader. All round cracking fun.
