"Superb... Riveting tensions!"
- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (STARRED REVIEW)
Joe Pickett is the new game warden in Twelve Sleep, Wyoming, a town where nearly everyone hunts and the game warden - especially one like Joe, who won't take bribes or look the other way - is always far from popular. When Joe finds a local hunting outfitter dead, splayed out on the woodpile behind his state-owned home, he takes it personally - and thrusts himself into a mystery that threatens the life and family he loves.
"Box's book has it all - suspenseful plot, magnificent scenery, and a flawed male hero who is tough but truly connected to his family.... Profoundly memorable." - BOSTON HERALD
"Open Season rings true.... Full of the kind of grittiness a reader can expect from a place where blood and bone are not just the stuff of crime fiction, but of sport and survival, too." - THE DENVER POST
