The Bitterroots C.J. Box

The ties that bind can burn you.

Former sheriff's investigator Cassie Dewell is trying to start over with her own private investigation firm. She's her own boss answering to no one – and that's just the way she likes it after the past few tumultuous years. But it's all going to change when an old friend calls in a favour: she wants Cassie to help exonerate a man accused of assaulting a young woman from an influential family.

Against her own better judgment, Cassie agrees. But out by the Bitterroot Mountains of Montana, twisted family loyalty runs as deep as the ties to the land, and there's always something more to the story. The Kleinsassers have ruled this part of Montana for decades, and the Iron Cross Ranch is their stronghold. They want to see Blake Kleinsasser, the black sheep of the family, put away forever for the assault. As Cassie attempts to uncover the truth, she must not only confront a family whose roots are tangled and deadly – she must also face the ghosts of her own past.

With The Bitterroots, master storyteller C.J. Box delivers another searing novel of loyalty, lies, and lethal retribution.

REVIEWS
'There is much to enjoy about C.J. Box ... There is always an almost poetic depiction of the land and the wildlife in Montana or North Dakota'
