New York Times bestselling author C.J. Box's novels have been called "red hot" ( Booklist ) and "edge-of-your-seat read[s]" ( Omaha World-Herald ). Now he delivers a novel that will steal your sleep as much as it will wrench your heart. Three Weeks to Say Goodbye is a novel about something that could be anyone's worst nightmare. . .

Jack and Melissa McGuane have spent years trying to have a baby. Finally their dream has come true with the adoption of their daughter, Angelina. But nine months after bringing her home, they receive a devastating phone call...

Angelina's birth father, a teenager, never signed away his parental rights--and he wants her back. Worse, his father, a powerful Denver judge, will use every trick in the book to make sure it happens. The McGuanes attempt to meet face-to-face with the father and son...but soon it becomes clear that there's something sinister about their motivations--and that love for Angelina is not one of them.

A horrifying game of intimidation and double crosses begins that quickly becomes a death spiral where everyone is suspect and no one is safe. Now Jack and Melissa will stop at nothing to protect their child--even though time is running out...

C.J. Box has once again written a bone-chilling thriller that will keep you guessing until the very last page.

Keeps you on your toes.

started out fairly well, but the tying together of the plt threads at the end was disappointing and strck me as sloppy. I ended up thinking the book was interesting mainly as an illustration of American attitudes to authority, guns etc. Ultimately I found the book distasteful and I will probably not be rading more Box.

Raw, emotional right to the last word.
