Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New York Times–bestselling writer C. J. Box returns with a thrilling new novel, featuring Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett.

 

She was gone. Joe Pickett had good reason to dislike Dallas Cates, even if he was a rodeo champion, and now he has even more—Joes eighteen-year-old ward, April, has run off with him.

And then comes even worse news: The body of a girl has been found in a ditch along the highway—alive, but just barely, the victim of blunt force trauma. It is April, and the doctors arent sure if shell recover. Cates denies having anything to do with it—says she ran away from him, too—and theres evidence that points to another man. But Joe knows in his gut whos responsible. What he doesnt know is the kind of danger hes about to encounter. Cates is bad enough, but Catess family is like none Joe has ever met before.

Joes going to find out the truth, even if it kills him. But this time, it just might.

Synopsis:

A New York Times bestselling "suspenseful, action-filled ride" (The Denver Post) from the author of the Joe Pickett novels...

Everything about the rich stranger is a mystery: the massive, isolated ranch in the remote Black Hills of Wyoming, the women who live with him, the secret philanthropies, the private airstrip, the sudden disappearances. And especially the persistent rumors that the mans wealth comes from killing people.

Joe Pickett, still officially a game warden but now mostly a troubleshooter for the governor, is assigned to find out the truth. But he finds out a lot more than he bargained for. There are two other men living up at that ranch. One is a stone-cold killer who takes an instant dislike to Joe. He doesnt frighten Joe at all.

The other man is another story…

 

Synopsis:

When Earl Alden is found dead, his wife Missy is arrested. Unfortunately for Joe Pickett, Missy is his much-disliked mother-in- law. All signs point to her being guilty as sin. But then things happen to make Joe wonder if everything is as it seems. He has the county DA and sheriff on one side, his wife on the other, and some powerful interests breathing down his neck. Whichever way this goes, it's not going to be good.
