Over the course of eighteen books, C. J. Box has been consistently hailed for his brilliant storytelling and extraordinary skills at creating character, suspense, and a deep sense of place. All of those strengths are in the ten riveting stories - three of them never before published - that make up Shots Fired.
In "One-Car Bridge," one of four Joe Pickett stories, Pickett goes up against a "just plain mean" landowner, with disastrous results, and in "Shots Fired," his investigation into the radio call referred to in the title nearly ends up being the last thing he ever does. In "Pirates of Yellowstone," two Eastern European tough guys find out what it means to be strangers in a strange land, and in "Le Sauvage Noble," the stranger is a Lakota in Paris who enjoys playing the "noble savage" for the French women - until he meets Sophie. Then he discovers what "savage" really means.

C.J. has done it again
An intriguing collection of short stories by C.J. Box, masterfully read by David Chandler. I particularly enjoyed the stories which contain Joe & Nate because I have read the entire Joe Pickett series and these could each be a chapter or two in one of the novels. However, each story stands alone so reading the series is not a prerequisite! The other stories clearly demonstrate C.J.'s imagination, writing style and 'dark side' in a couple. I liked the explanation of where he got some of his ideas and when and why he wrote each one.
