The Box Score

Back of Beyond by C.J. Box We’re pleased to tell you that C.J. Box’s BACK OF BEYOND is on The New York Times bestseller list for its fourth week, this time at #31. It’s also #4 this week on the Mountains & Plains Independent Booksellers Association list, and, while it’s not surprising that Box has a large number of devoted fans out West, he seems to be pretty darn popular across the pond as well! A rave review from London after the jump!

Does the name C.J. Box sound familiar to you? Perhaps not, as the Wyoming-dwelling, cowboy hat sporting bestselling writer has been a US hit for some time, but is only now being pushed on this side of the pond.

If you do know of Box, you’ll know of him for his Joe Pickett series, from which Back of Beyond is a notable break. Fans of Joe won’t be disappointed, though, with this typically heavy-breathing thriller involving murder and the Wild West.

A surprisingly complex but rewarding plot answers this and thousands of other questions: we dare you to try to figure out the mystery before the end. Grab this book for any late-summer holidays or for a bit of escapism if your summer break has been and gone.

Box also has plenty of fans on the East Coast, many of whom were surely sorely disappointed that his recent event with fellow ARLA thriller writer Paul Doiron at the Blue Hill Public Library in Maine was cancelled due to Hurricane Irene. Well, fret not, because the reading has been rescheduled for Thursday, September 29th!
