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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Ranks with his best…[Readers] won’t know what hit them.”

    Booklist (starred review)

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "
