Force of Nature (Joe Pickett Novels)by C J Box
Synopses & Reviews
A New York Timesbestselling collection of Longmire adventures
Ten years ago, Craig Johnson wrote his first short story, the Hillerman Awardwinning Old Indian Trick.” This was one of the earliest appearances of the sheriff who would go on to star in Johnsons bestselling, award-winning novels and the hit television series Longmire. Each Christmas Eve thereafter, fans rejoiced when Johnson sent out a new short story featuring an episode in Walts life that doesnt appear in the novels; over the years, many have asked why they cant buy the stories in book form.
Wait for Signs gives Longmire fans a chance to own these beloved stories—and one that was published for the first time in the Viking edition—in a single volume. With glimpses of Walts past from the incident in Ministerial Aide,” when the sheriff is mistaken for a deity, to the hilarious Messenger,” where the majority of the action takes place in a Porta-Potty, Wait for Signs is a necessary addition to any Longmire fans shelf and a wonderful way to introduce new readers to the fictional world of Absaroka County, Wyoming.
"Edgar-winner Box's breakneck 12th Joe Pickett novel (after 2011's Cold Wind) focuses on Joe's outlaw buddy, Nate Romanowski. Nate's been hiding in the foothills of Wyoming's Bighorn Mountains from cruel and powerful enemies, harmlessly communing with his falcons, except when assisting game warden Joe on a case. Unfortunately, Nate's sociopath former Special Forces commander, John Nemecek, a fellow falconer, comes after him with merciless efficiency and a crew of fanatical thugs, and Nate responds with measured but startling ferocity. When Nemecek begins interrogating — and eliminating — people connected to Nate, Joe's family members become targets, forcing Joe to decide how far he can go to help his friend. The struggle between loyalty and law has always been at the heart of this series, set far from big-city legal support systems, and it's especially impressive in this superior entry. Author tour.
