(The second book in the Cassie Dewell series)

See C.J. Box at the Tucson Festival of Books in March 2016! After listening to Back of Beyond and The Highway, I was very excited for Badlands and it did not disappoint. I particularly enjoyed the bad guys and their body disposal methods.

Thanks to a massive oil discovery, once-dying Grimstad, North Dakota, has been transformed into a sprawling boom town full of newcomers and new construction -- as well as drugs, gangs, and violence. Early one morning, 12-year-old paperboy Kyle Westergaard witnesses a vehicle force another car off the road -- with fatal consequences. But the police say it's a single-car accident, and Kyle has complicated things with the theft of a bag from the crashed car -- a bag that lots of people want. Narrated by both Kyle and deputy sheriff Cassie Dewell (readers of The Highway will remember her), this atmospheric novel brims with suspense and action.
