The electrifying new Joe Pickett novel from the New York Times–bestselling author.
Everything about the man is a mystery: the massive ranch in the remote Black Hills of Wyoming that nobody ever visits, the women who live with him, the secret philanthropies, the private airstrip, the sudden disappearances. And especially the persistent rumors that the man’s wealth comes from killing people.
Joe Pickett, still officially a game warden but now mostly a troubleshooter for the governor, is assigned to find out what the truth is, but he discovers a lot more than he’d bargained for. There are two other men living up at that ranch. One is a stone-cold killer who takes an instant dislike to Joe. The other is new—but Joe knows him all too well. The first man doesn’t frighten Joe. The second is another story entirely.

What a ride!
I have enjoyed all of the books of this series, but this was the most suspenseful. I could have read it in one sitting, but forced myself to make it last 24 hours. I'm ready for the next one.
A return to the old Box writing
This book returns this reader to the writings I have enjoyed from the beginning. Gone are the anti-Federal government rantings of his last Pickens chapter, and back to a story which includes all the favored characters, including Nate and, yes, Missy (the mother in law one would love to bury in the vast openness of Wyoming!); with Joe jumping into the hornet nest with full fervor. Well done, Mr Box. Good to have you back!
Another great story in a long line of C J Box masterpieces
Box keeps you riveted till the end. You're always trying to out guess Joes next move. Never can, but he keeps you on the edge of your seat. I expect his next will have Joe headed for Vegas to bulldog a cowboy and bring April back.
