Scottish Critic Finds C.J. Box “Utterly Irresistible”

Blue Heaven by C.J. BoxCorvus published the paperback edition of BLUE HEAVEN in the UK this month, and it’s already gotten a rave review!

The Scottish Daily Express calls the novel “utterly irresistible” and goes on to say:

Those who have encountered earlier novels by CJ Box will be in no doubt that he is one of the most talented thriller writers at work today and it’s obvious the fulsome praise on the jacket from such luminaries as Harlan Coben and Tess Gerritsen is fully justified.

It’s not just the mechanics of keeping the reader turning the pages that the author is so skilled at, it’s the wonderfully rich characterisation of all the protagonists here, good and evil.

A sense of place leaps off the page but however beautiful the setting we are never allowed to forget the menace drawing ever closer to the desperate children. Blue Heaven is more than 400 pages long but you’ll read it as quickly as a slim novella.

For all of Chuck’s new British fans who devoured BLUE HEAVEN, you won’t have to wait long for more! In fact, you’ll soon be able to read the entire Joe Pickett backlist. Beginning with OPEN SEASON in February, Corvus will publish one title a month until readers are all caught up. That’s what we call thinking inside the Box!
