Synopses & Reviews
From C. J. Box, the New York Times-bestselling author of the Joe Pickett novels, comes a thrilling book of suspense stories about the Wyoming he knows so well—and the dark deeds and impulses that can be found there.
Over the course of eighteen books, C. J. Box has been consistently hailed for his brilliant storytelling and extraordinary skills at creating character, suspense, and a deep sense of place. All of those strengths are in the ten riveting stories—three of them never before published—that make up Shots Fired.
In One-Car Bridge,” one of four Joe Pickett stories, Pickett goes up against a just plain mean” landowner, with disastrous results, and in Shots Fired,” his investigation into the radio call referred to in the title nearly ends up being the last thing he ever does. In Pirates of Yellowstone,” two Eastern European tough guys find out what it means to be strangers in a strange land, and in Le Sauvage Noble,” the stranger is a Lakota in Paris who enjoys playing the noble savage” for the French women—until he meets Sophie. Then he discovers what savage” really means.
Shots Fired is proof once again why Box is a force to be reckoned with” (The Providence Journal-Bulletin).
The electrifying new Joe Pickett novel from the New York Timesbestselling author.
Everything about the man is a mystery: the massive ranch in the remote Black Hills of Wyoming that nobody ever visits, 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 what the truth is, but he discovers a lot more than hed 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. The other is new—but Joe knows him all too well. The first man doesnt frighten Joe. The second is another story entirely.
New York Timesbestselling 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.
