Beschreibung

The new standalone thriller from New York Times bestselling author, C J Box. Cassie Dewell has just been appointed deputy sherriff in North Dakota's new oil capital. But there is a serious law and order problem and a gang war is heating up. The key to it all seems to lie with a 12 year old paperboy who keeps showing up where he doesn't belong.

Grimstad, North Dakota. A place people used to be from - but were never headed to - has struck oil. As pipelines snake across the prairie, oil flows out and men and money flow in. And with them, comes crime. North Dakota's new oil capital has a serious law and order problem and newly qualified detective Cassie Dewell has just been appointed its deputy sheriff. Twelve-year-old Kyle Westergaard is one of Grimstad's paperboys. Kyle has been written off as the 'slow' kid, but he has dreams deeper than anyone can imagine - he wants to get out of town, take care of his alcoholic mother, and give them a better life. While delivering newspapers, he witnesses a car accident and now has money and a lot of white powder in his possession. With the temperature dropping to 30 degress below and a gang war heating up, Cassie fears she might be in over her head. The key to it all will come in the most unlikely form: an undersized boy on a bike who keeps showing up where he doesn't belong.

'An impressive, strong, female protagonist, situations that are diabolical with the most evil of villains ... and the added factor of suspected corruption in the police force makes the tension palpable ... Another great read from CJ Box!' Reading, Writing and Riesling.
