C.J. Box

Winner of the Edgar Award for Best Novel, Blue Heaven is an adrenaline-fueled, suspense-ratcheting, page-turning thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last word!

Frankly I have too much to read on my plate right now but once I read what so many others had to say about this author I decided it had to be in the reading pile!
I wasn't disappointed. The story spans just over 48 hours real time and delivers twists and turns until its last breathtaking page. It spent four weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and has been optioned for film by producers Michael Besman (‘About Schmidt’) and Cameron Lamb.

If you like crime fiction then put your name down for this one now.
NZ publication 1 September.

Look at these comments and you'll see what I mean:

‘In the crowded field of crime fiction, C.J. Box has quickly established himself as an original voice . . . Box is exploring new territory. He is fresh, captivating and has something to say.’ Michael Connelly

‘An unusual, intelligent thriller that resonates long after the last page is turned.’ George Pelecanos

‘One of today’s solid-gold A-list must-read writers’ Lee Child

‘Relentless. C.J. Box sucked me in with good cops, bad cops and missing money, then blind-sided me with unexpected twists and surprises in this novel of clashing cultures and dark secrets. Box delivers the goods!’ Robert Crais
