From audible.com:

From C. J. Box, the New York Times-bestselling author of the Joe Pickett novels, comes a thrilling book of suspense stories about the Wyoming he knows so well - and the dark deeds and impulses that can be found there.

Over the course of eighteen books, C. J. Box has been consistently hailed for his brilliant storytelling and extraordinary skills at creating character, suspense, and a deep sense of place. All of those strengths are in the ten riveting stories - three of them never before published - that make up Shots Fired.

In "One-Car Bridge," one of four Joe Pickett stories, Pickett goes up against a "just plain mean" landowner, with disastrous results, and in "Shots Fired," his investigation into the radio call referred to in the title nearly ends up being the last thing he ever does. In "Pirates of Yellowstone," two Eastern European tough guys find out what it means to be strangers in a strange land, and in "Le Sauvage Noble," the stranger is a Lakota in Paris who enjoys playing the "noble savage" for the French women - until he meets Sophie. Then he discovers what "savage" really means.

"An excellent anthology...  One of America's best crime novelists."
-LANSING STATE JOURNAL


From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Joe Pickett series comes a thrilling collection of suspense stories about the Wyoming he knows so Well - and the dark deeds and impulses that can be found there....

In "One-Car Bridge," one of four Joe Pickett stories, Pickett goes up against a just-plain-mean landowner, with disastrous results.  In "Shots Fired," his investigation into a radio call nearly ends up being the last thing he ever does.  "Pirates of Yellowstone" features two Eastern European tough guys who find out what it means to be strangers in a strange land, and in "Le Sauvage Noble" the stranger is a Lakota in Paris who enjoys playing the noble savage for the French women - until he meets Sophie.  Then he discovers what savage really means....

C. J. Box has been hailed for the brilliant storytelling that defines his novels.  That same brilliance is here in the ten riveting stories - three of them never before published - that make up Shots Fired.

"Nonstop adventure and mystery are omnipresent with unexpected twists and turns that will leave readers begging for more." - LIBRARY JOURNAL (STARRED REVIEW)

"If you're looking for rising tension played out against spectacular natural scenery, nobody does it better."

  • 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.
