Cody Hoyt, while a brilliant cop, is an alcoholic struggling with two months of sobriety when his mentor and AA sponsor Hank Winters is found burned to death in a remote mountain cabin. At first it looks like the suicide of a man who's fallen off the wagon, but Cody knows Hank better than that. Sober for fourteen years, Hank took pride in his hard-won sobriety and never hesitated to drop whatever he was doing to talk Cody off a ledge. When Cody takes a closer look at the scene of his friend's death, it becomes apparent that foul play is at hand. After years of bad behavior with his deparment, he's in no position to be investigating a homicide, but this man was a friend and Cody's determined to find his killer.… (mer)

The Story:

Mr Box gives us a meticulously thought out mystery/thriller that is so varied and multilayered. Multiple motives, suspects, killings and surprises. He also gives us one of the most flawed heroes I’ve ever seen and some of the smartest and most deviant supporting characters. While the story moved at a decent pace I will say I lost interest at some parts and felt it could have been shorter. Maybe shorter is not the word I’m looking for as we needed everything that was told but maybe in a more condensed sort of way. I’m not sure.

It was a great start to the series. Book 2 is the one that guides the TV show Big Sky and I’m unsure if I should read it before the show season ends.

Great mystery, love the plot and the narrator did a wonderful job. Most importantly, Cody Hoyt is such a great character. ( )

This is the first story of this series. It is a modern western with an alcoholic detective with the DT's stumbling through his case. When I finished the first chapter, I knew I was in for a good story. I was not disappointed. It's a real page turner, with a good amount of suspense and mayhem. A suitable replacement for the Pickett series. ( )

I knew this author was popular so I started listening to his book The Highway. Shortly into it, I realized this book, Back of Beyond, was a precursor, so I put aside The Highway so I could get the backstory from this book. I wasn't crazy about it. The protagonist, Cody Hoyt, was an unlikable loose cannon. Was he effective? Yes. Did he go by the law? No. He was a one-man vigilante team, if there can be such a thing. He was not a man to emulate or admire. Still, unlikable characters can be interesting, and he was, to a degree. But way too ridiculously macho. The story itself was fairly compelling. The author says he likes to bring up controversial subjects but doesn't like to preach (my word, not his) but his views come across anyway, even though the reader isn't hit over the head with a hammer by them. I suspect he and I would not agree on several subjects. Still, I can see how this book would appeal to some. After I finished this book, I returned to The Highway and finished it, and I liked it even less than this one. The narration on both was very good. ( )
