Blood Trail (Joe Pickett Novels)
Synopses & Reviews
Award-winning writer C. J. Box returns with a vengeance in this thrilling new novel featuring Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett.
I‛s elk season in the Rockies, but this year a different kind of hunter is stalking a different kind of prey. When the call comes in on the radio, Joe Pickett can hardly believe his ears: game wardens have found a hunter dead at a camp in the mountainsÂ—strung up, gutted, and flayed, as if he were the elk h‛d been pursuing. A spent cartridge and a poker chip lie next to his body.
Ripples of horror spread through the community, and with a possibly psychotic killer on the loose Governor Rulon is forced to end the hunting season early for the first time in state history. Are the murders the work of a deranged antihunting activist or of a lone psychopath with a personal vendetta?
As always, Joe Pickett is the governo‛s go-to man, and h‛s put on the case to track the murderous hunter, as more bodies and poker chips turn up.
Bold, fast-paced, and with a controversial hookÂ—hunting versus antihunting activistsÂ—Blood Trail is proof that C. J. Box is an ever-rising talent.
