It’s Joe Pickett’s last week as a temporary game warden in the mountain town of Baggs, Wyoming, but his conscience won’t let him leave without checking out the strange reports coming from the wilderness: camps looted, tents slashed, elk butchered. What awaits him is like something out of an old campfire tale, except this story is all too real—and all too deadly.

    Booklist (starred review)

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martha | 2/17/2014

    " I love Joe Pickett books, not even so much for the mystery part of the books, but feeling like you know about his family and his concerns along the way. He is a very human protagonist. This story about two brothers who have been completely mistreated by the government and others in power seems a bit more political in its message, but is very readable nevertheless. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 2/16/2014

    " Another government plot to bilk the common ordinary citizen out of their property uncovered by Joe Pickett with murder and mayhem the outcome. Interesting twist for Yoopers; the bad guys were from the U.P. of Michigan. Some were portrayed as the typical Yooper redneck gone criminal because of the government, while others were simply hired baddies. Of course, they went bad because of chronicaly bad economy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim Niland | 2/12/2014

    " Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett is on horseback patrol in a remote mountainous section of the state when he comes across a lone man fishing in a secluded lake. Citing him for fishing without a license sets in motion a string of events he can scarcely imagine. Soon Pickett is in a fight for his life against two fugitive bothers hiding out in the remote wilderness. Barely escaping with his life, he is forced to return to the wilderness to try to learn the fate of a young woman who went missing years before and learn her connection to the brothers. This was a fast paced and well written story, with Box's descriptions of the rugged mountain territory both vivid and inspiring. What was particularly interesting about this story was his incorporation of some political issues that have been gripping the country like the role of government in society and individual liberty vs. law and order. Box doesn't take one side or the other, but presents a convincing story about divergent views about the nature of liberty and personal freedom. "

    " Another winner by C.J.Box. I have read all of his books and love them all. Great author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Irene Fischer | 2/6/2014

    " I enjoy the author's style of writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacy | 2/4/2014

    " Catching up on the C. J. Box series now - Nowhere to Run was a solid entry in the Joe Pickett series. However, this one was a bit disappointing compared to some of the others. Don't get me a wrong, a slightly off book by C. J. Box is still a really good book, I just felt that something was off this time around. Part of the problem was the ending which felt rushed and was fairly unsatisfying. As usual, Joe finds himself in rather dangerous and unusual situation that is never as cut and dried as he would like. The moral dilemmas are always thought provoking and timely. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/19/2014

    " Love this author. Can get formulaic but avoids that in this book. I always choose him knowing I will enjoy the mystery and setting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dennis Willingham | 1/16/2014

    " Pretty good pageturner. Wild life agent Joe Pickett persues a couple of property rights driven hermits and looks for a missing girl who doesn't want to be found. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gerri | 1/15/2014

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dave Freas | 12/25/2013

    " This was the first Joe Pickett novel to disappoint. It didn't seem to have the depth and quality previous books in the series had. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Worthington | 11/21/2013

    " A thrilling story about a game warden and his plan to bring in twin brothers after encountering them in the wilderness. A tale that keeps you guess until the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve | 8/6/2013

    " Number 10 in the Joe Pickett series of C.J. Box novels is one of his best. The Wyoming game warden has a harrowing experience that shakes his confidence as he is about to come home from exile in an out of the way district. Government consipiracy and greed figure in this novel as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janis | 8/4/2013
