When wealthy matriarch Opal Scarlett vanishes, Joe Pickett is sure one of her greedy sons did her in. But when Joe becomes the victim of violent pranks, he wonders if what's happening has less to do with Opal's disappearance than with the darkest chapter of his own past.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry | 2/18/2014

    " Another great book in the Joe Pickett series. This is one of the more intense novels and stories of Joe Pickett. If you haven't read C.J. Box before, start with his first Joe Picket novel, Open Season, and then read the books in order to follow the saga of Joe Pickett and his family. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roger Plothow | 2/13/2014

    " My first C.J. Box book and, all in all, a lot of fun (particularly since it takes place in Wyoming). A little on the predictable side, but good, clean, violent fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 2/2/2014

    " Nice mix of mystery, suspense, and humor placed in the context of politics of ecological concerns in West (e.g. conservation vs. hunting; ecotourism vs. ranching). This time our hero, Wyoming Game Warden Joe Pickett, gets in the middle of feud between brothers vying for inheritance of a large ranch after the matriarch disappears. His enemies are a really bad guy with a grudge against Joe from the past, a petty new boss, corrupt members of the Sheriff's department, and a loving family that doesn't always appreciate his inability to avoid confrontation driven by his princples. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie (aka Serial Reader) | 2/1/2014

    " These Joe Pickett novels are very good but very grim. Joe's fighting life on all sides now. His new boss hates him, the governor threatens him, he has an enemy from his past who swears to cause him harm, Nate's gone, and Joe's at his wit's end. Joe has a moral compass that seems to pit him against everyone else, including his family at times. The ending of this novel surprises even me and I can't WAIT to read #7, Free Fire. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 1/28/2014

    " Joe ends up in the mother of all ranch succession disputes while a man from the past returns to seek vengeance on Joe amongst the heirs to ranch. Joe gets to meet the new governor and that encounter is pretty humorous to say the least. Lots of darkness and meaness in this episode-downright biblical, plus some creepy weirdness as well. Joe is a marked man not only by a sociopath bent on revenge but also by his bureaucratic boss who micromanages him on a daily basis hoping to fire him at the slightest pretext. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 1/27/2014

    " I love the settings of this series - makes me so want to go to Wyoming (maybe in a month or two...not winter!) as Box describes its beauty and the animals. Here, Pickett has a new admirer who wants to settle some perceived 'wrongs' that were done to him. The guy (related to the Keeleys in the earlier storyline) is a complete whack-a-do and, fortunately, because he is, we don't have to worry about him past this book. The new Governor is introduced briefly and Joe gets fired near the end...thankfully. Not sure I would've hung on as long as he did after being treated like dog poo on your shoe by his superiors but. . .then again, I don't have a family of four to support either. While this story does center on the Scarlett family and their dysfunction junction known as the Thunderhead Ranch, it is all settled out at the end and it was really quite odd how the whole thing goes down. My only criticism is that Box spends about 210 of the 225 pages leading up to the grand finale and then whoosh, it's over - kind like the flash floods that were running amok at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather Nelson | 1/17/2014

    " Not really my cup of tea, but interesting non the less. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mimi | 12/20/2013

    " Not as enjoyable as some of his other mysteries. Still, glad I read it. Good entertainment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Al Stoess | 12/16/2013

    " Very well done. Explained some things from previous books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 11/21/2013

    " I thought this was one of the better books in the Joe Pickett series. Very suspenseful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anthony | 11/12/2013

    " One of the better Joe Pickett books. Takes a dark turn in the end (a darker book overall) and leaves a great cliff hangar. I won't tell you anymore. I really wish Hollywood would produce a Joe Pickett movie or made for TV movies like the Tom Selleck CBS movies of the Jesse Stone series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 10/25/2013

    " Add a star if you like mystery series, set in the west (Wyoming), DOW connection...looking forward to catching up on this whole series! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cathy | 10/20/2013

    " An ok, fast read, but not my favorite of the Joe Pickett series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ednor | 8/13/2013

    " Another outstanding, fulfilling entry in the Joe Pickett series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather Wilkinson | 7/8/2013

    " Great story, however I was a little disappointed in the ending. Not knowing what happened with Joe's job...should have been one more chapter! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolyn | 6/9/2013

    " I love the Joe Pickett series by this author. "

    " Joe picket has lost his job. I can't wait to find out where this will lead. I'm glad Nate is around. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 6/6/2012

    " 4 and a half stars for C.J. Box. A great story teller. This book was riveting. We have Game Warden Joe Pickett in the middle of a modern day range war...It doesn't get better than this..and then there is Wyoming... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leigh | 4/18/2011

    " Liked it. Not a complex plot, but it did have a twist at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jay | 4/1/2011

    " CJ Box is addictive, I think I need to lay off for a while, I am halfway through the series and I want it to last. I read his last 2 books in 5 days. He has a very evocative writing style, literary in an adverterous way. I feel I know Wyoming now. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Traci Haley | 3/10/2011

    " This is, by far, my favorite Joe Pickett novel of the bunch. A lot of past storylines are touched upon and a lot of BIG changes take place. I was also slightly proud of myself for figuring out the "twist" at the end! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe O'c | 2/24/2011

    " Excellent: Continuing character: Joe Pickett; an ex-con who wants to terrorize the Pickett family and the founding family of the town he lives in fights among itself to determine who will take over the spread owned by their mother come together in explosive fashion "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherie | 5/12/2009

    " This is my first C.J. Box mystery and while I liked Joe Pickett, I am not a huge fan of "out west " mysteries. This involved lots of miscreants, fueding families, and gore. I think the writing is good, but I'm not sure if I want to read another. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Fitzsimons | 12/16/2008

    " CJ Box is always great read! "
