The past comes back to haunt game warden Joe Pickett and his family with devastating effect in the thrilling new novel from #1 New York Times–bestselling author C. J. Box.

The plane circled in the dark. Joe Pickett could just make out down below a figure in the snow and timber, and then three other figures closing in. There was nothing he could do about it. And Joe knew that he might be their next target.

The Cates family had always been a bad lot. Game warden Joe Pickett had been able to strike a fierce blow against them when the life of his daughter April had been endangered, but he’d always wondered if there’d be a day of reckoning. He’s not wondering any longer. Joe knows they’re coming after him and his family now. He has his friend Nate by his side, but will that be enough this time? All he can do is prepare...and wait for them to make the first move.


  • Recycled from older books

    Contrived and dull. People are mechanical, Joe is a much more of a sanctimonious old bore. Much less of interest about Wyoming. This is not worth the money.
  • Dissapointing

    By Kcbeer
    I've purchased every book in this series and by far this is the worst one. I've enjoyed every other book but this one stinks it up big time. Don't waste your money! Maybe it's time to retire Joe!

    I hate flash back books after 30 pages this turns to outmoded style. Lame
  • Episode of the Week

    By ynptrailrunner
    This latest edition of the Joe Pickett series was enjoyable, but the books are beginning to read like episodes of the week of a crime series. Not a bad thing since we know the characters and history; but since these will not likely turn into a tv series, I would like to see a return to more substance with all the regular characters more involved in the story telling, instead of being primarily in the background. Even Nate jumped in and then jumped back out this time around; yes, I know this is how Nate operates- on the fringe. Joe, the rest of the Picketts, Nate, and Dulce, are so familiar; I look forward to the next installment - though at a length that takes me longer than two nights to read. Speaking of tv series; with Longmire ending with this next season on Netflix, let's keep the genre going with Joe Picket...just saying!
