Winner of the 2009 Edgar Award for Best Novel, Blue Heaven is a thrilling read from New York Times bestseller C.J. Box, creator of the characters of hit TV shows Joe Pickett and Big Sky.
They were running away from home, now they're running for their lives.
If twelve-year-old Annie hadn't been angry with her mother, she would never have taken her younger brother William on a secret fishing trip deep into the North Idaho woods and they would never have witnessed the execution nor looked straight into the eyes of the four executioners.
Now they're running for their lives.
They can't go home: the killers know exactly who they are. And where they live. They can't turn to the law: the killers are four respected Los Angeles policemen. There's nowhere for William and Annie to hide. And no one they can trust.
Until they meet Jess Rawlins.
Rawlins, an old-school rancher, knows something is wrong with the law in Blue Heaven. But he is only one against four men who will stop at nothing to silence their witnesses...
