Summary

"What happens when you combine an acclaimed a C.J. Box novel with a terrific narration? A stellar audiobook like this one, narrated by Christina Delaine." (AudioFile magazine)

A riveting new audiobook from New York Times best-selling and Edgar Award-winning author C. J. Box.

Former police officer Cassie Dewell is trying to start over with her own private investigation firm. Guilty about not seeing her son and exhausted by the nights on stakeout, Cassie is nonetheless managing...until an old friend calls in a favor: She wants Cassie to help exonerate a man accused of assaulting a young girl from an influential family. 

Against her own better judgment, Cassie agrees. But out in the Big Sky Country of Montana, twisted family loyalty runs as deep as the ties to the land, and there's always something more to the story. As Cassie attempts to uncover the truth, she must fight against the ghosts of her own past that threaten to pull her back under. 

With The Bitterroots, master storyteller C. J. Box delivers another audiobook featuring fan favorite Cassie Dewell from the Highway Quartet series.

narrator's breathy voice annoying

I love CJ Box books I have almost all of them but this one is a dud. The story line is dragging on and on and the narrator's breathy voice is so annoying that I have to keep turning the story off after a while and come back to it. All of his other books are way better

Terrible Narration

I don’t know if the book is good or not because I couldn’t past the first 10 minutes of the dumbest sounding people I’ve ever heard. I could not listen to it anymore. I understand the narrator was trying to make them sound uneducated but it was overdone. Wish I could get my credit back.

Disappointing.

Not up to Box’s earlier books. Also the narrator was heavy and irritating. There was little surprising . I can not recommend this book.

annoying loud in areas

when the narrator changed accent, the increase in volume was annoying and distracting to listen to.

Another page turner from C J Box

Got the book yesterday & finished it this morning. Typical from Mr Box for me ... when I begin one of his books I just can’t put it down. I’m a big Joe Pickett fan & I also like many of his stand alone novels ... and Cassie is also a fav. Thank You Mr Box

Gripping

This is my first book by C. J. Box. It was not until I started reading the book that I realized it was book five of a series.

The book is well written. The plot twists around. The characters are interesting. The protagonist is Cassie Dewell. She is a former Sheriff’s investigator. She has opened up a private practice as a private investigator. She is hired by a friend to exonerate a man of a crime of rape. The story takes place in the Bitterroot Mountains of Montana. The pace is fast. Box provided great descriptions of the countryside. The story kept my attention throughout the book. I am looking forward to reading more books in this series.

The book is nine hours and forty-nine minutes. Christina Delaine does a good job narrating the book. Delaine is a stage actor and voice-over artist. Delaine has won multiple Earphone Awards and is an Audie Award nominee.

Cassie's Back

The Bitterroots (Cassie Dewell, #4)
by C.J. Box

C. J. Box brings Cassie back She is a private investigator, hired by defense attorney in a child molestation case. Her son Ben and her mother are feuding. Ben is having problems growing up. Cassie goes out of town on the case and all "hell" breaks loose. Lots of characters good, bad, and questionable ones. Plenty of twists and turns that keep the listener on edge until the end. I can't wait to see what cases she will have next.



The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Christina Delaine brought the book to life.

Another Great CJ Box Mystery

I love this latest CJ Box story. Whenever I see advertisement for a new audio book from CJ, I am always excited to listen and I am never disappointed. I was happy to see that this was a Cassie Duell mystery
She is one of my favorite Box protagonist. She is a feisty average, looking detective, smart and persistent in solving her crimes
She is an average mom and daughter caring for her family, while doing her best to put bad guys away. In this story, beautifully narrated by Christine Delaine Cassie is working for a feisty defence lawyer on a case that she hates, because she thinks the defendant n this case is a rapist. Cassie still does her due diligence to find out the truth which leads to danger for her. As the drama unfolds you find yourself unable to stop listening, It is an all nighter almost. I hope CJ will next give us the lawyer Rachel's bio and story. I liked her character.
If you are looking for great audio books check out books by CJ Box and all of his different characters, you won't be disappointed.
