Joe Pickett, Book 20
The wife of a prominent local judge is shot and killed on Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett's turf. But as Joe investigates, all signs point to the shot having been taken from an impossibly long distance. Joe has seen a lot in his time as warden, but he's never seen a killing like this. How could the shooting have been arranged? And who else is in the cross hairs? At the same time – just as he's adjusting to the arrival of a new baby, his first child – Joe's best friend Nate Romanowski is attempting to decipher a startling grizzly attack in the area. Beset by threats both man-made and natural, the two men must go to great lengths to figure out how to keep their loved ones safe.
Praise for the author: “Box is the king of contemporary crime fiction set in the West” PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
“One of his most tightly wound tales, with more thrills than a snowy road on a steep mountain and more authority than the governor of Wyoming” KIRKUS REVIEWS
“As always, Box takes familiar elements of his long running series [...] and seamlessly combines them into a read that makes your heart race ... Half mystery, half thriller, totally worthwhile” BOOKLIST
