Publisher's Summary

#1 New York Times bestselling author C. J. Box's Treasure State finds Cassie Dewell in Montana on the trail of a con man.

Private Investigator Cassie Dewell’s business is thriving, and her latest case puts her on the hunt for a slippery con man who’s disappeared somewhere in the “treasure state”. A wealthy Florida widow has accused him of absconding with her fortune, and wants Cassie to find him and get it back. The trail takes Cassie to Anaconda, Montana, a quirky former copper mining town that’s the perfect place to reinvent yourself. As the case develops, Cassie begins to wonder if her client is telling her everything.

On top of that, Cassie is also working what's easily one of her strangest assignments ever. A poem that promises buried treasure to one lucky adventurer has led to a cutthroat competition and five deaths among treasure-hunters. But Cassie’s client doesn’t want the treasure. Instead, he claims to be the one who hid the gold and wrote the poem. And he’s hired Cassie to try to find him. Between the two cases, Cassie has her hands full.

In Montana, a killer view can mean more than just the scenery, and Cassie knows much darker things hide behind the picturesque landscape of Big Sky Country. Treasure State, C. J. Box's highly anticipated follow-up to The Bitterroots, is full of more twists and turns than the switchbacks through the Anaconda Range.

Just a weird place for Anti masker rhetoric

The story line is mediocre. However, Box slips in rhetoric about anti masks and trivializes Covid. He writes “useless paper masks” and calls a person who followed mask precautions “controlling” and that they “missed the pandemic” when they could “control people with masking requirements “.
This is the second novel Box has written where he slips in his personal political views. In this case saying masks are useless is just wrong. I know, people will (hopefully) not be getting their Covid info in a novel but contributing to misinformation is irresponsible. Making fun of people who followed pandemic guidelines has caused me to lose all respect for Box and his novels. I’m sad because I used to really enjoy the strong family values he depicted in the Pickett series. Now I feel I am just an audience for his soap box.

H-A-T-E-D it!

And I rarely even dislike a book. I’ve been a CJ Box fan, though, so I listened too long to be able to return it. The narration was tedious & I couldn’t identify or care about any of the characters. I speeded it up but finally decided that life is too short to endure torture. From now on I’m limiting this author’s books to Joe Pickett.

Slipping

I have been a big C.J. Box fan. This and his last Joe Pickett were disappointing. Too much political commentary wrapped into the books. Depth and character development not up to what they were.

Love Box Stories

I’m not sure if I ever felt conflicted about weather or not I liked a CJ Box novel. I simply love his storytelling and writing. Another winner. Love the fact that he is introducing characters from one series into another series. Love it!

Another good 1

I love the Cassie Dewell series. It’s not as good as the previous books in the series but it’s worth reading if you’re a fan of the series.

A twist on the true story of Forest Fenn's treasure with Cassie Dewell tracking down the anonymous author. In the process, she takes down a bad Sheriff and another bad guy. Cassie is becoming one of my favorite characters to read about because she feels like a real person who solves crimes. This book was a fun read and I want another one pretty soon.
