Box populi

Something I picked up at this year’s Bouchercon, or World Mystery Convention: “Blue Heaven” by C.J. Box.

The story takes place in North Idaho and Box does a great job of capturing the flavors and voices of the region. I was born in Kellogg and lived in Moscow. I have brothers living in Coeur d’Alene and Sandpoint, so I know a bit about the region and can tell you, Box gets the tone right.

This is a terrific mystery. Truly worth reading.

Happy Thanksgiving.
