"Box remains square on target throughout this superb debut."-Booklist

"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

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
