It's elk season in the Rockies - but a different kind of hunter is stalking a different kind of prey.  Game wardens have found a man dead at a mountain camp - strung up, gutted, and flayed as if he were the elk he'd been pursuing.  A poker chip lies next to his body.  As ripples of horror spread through the community, Governor Rulon is forced to end hunting season early.  Are the murders the work of a deranged anti-hunting activist or of a lone psychopath with a personal vendetta?  Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett is the man to track the murderer down before someone declares open season on humans.

Joe Pickett always liked Butch Roberson - a hard-working local business owner whose daughter is friends with his own.  Little does he know that when Butch says he is heading into the mountains to scout elk, he is actually going on the run.

Two EPA employees have been murdered, and all signs point to Butch as the killer.  Soon, Joe hears of the land Butch and his wife had bought to retire on - until they are told the EPA declared it a wetland - and the penalties the agency charged Butch until the family was torn apart.  Finally, it seems, the man just cracked.

It's an awful story.  But is it the whole story?  The more Joe investigates, the more he begins to wonder - and the more he finds himself in the middle of a war in which he must choose sides.

While elk hunting In the wilds of Wyoming, game warden Joe Pickett finds himself and a VIP guest being hunted.  The man he's guiding has a seemingly endless list of enemies, but it is up to Pickett to find out who has him in their sights - and why.


When the governor of Wyoming gives Joe Pickett the thankless task of taking a tech baron on an elk hunting trip, Joe reluctantly treks into the mountains with his high-profile charge.  What they don't know is that a man-hunter is hot on their heels, driven by a desire for revenge.  Finding himself without a weapon, a horse, or a way to communicate, Joe must rely on his wits and his knowledge of the outdoors to protect himself and his companion.

Meanwhile, Joe's closest friend, Nate Romanowski, and Joe's daughter Sheridan learn of the threat to Joe's life and follow him into the woods.  In a stunning final showdown, the three of them come up against the worst that nature - and man - have to offer.

"Joe Pickett, the conscientious game warden in these rugged novels... shows the tough-and-tender qualities that make him such a great guy to have on your side."
-THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett has to contend with two cases, both of them lethal - and one of them surprisingly close to home.


Wyoming's new governor isn't sure what to make of Joe Pickett, but he has a job for him that is extremely delicate.  A prominent British businesswoman never came home from the high-end guest ranch she was visiting, and the British Embassy is pressing hard.

At the same time, his friend Nate Romanowski has asked Joe to intervene with the feds on behalf of an issue passionately felt by falconers, but inexplicably being blocked.  It seems like a matter of lesser importance to Joe right now, but the more he digs into both cases, the more someone is trying to stop him.  Is it because of the missing woman or the falconers?  Or are they somehow connected?

She was gone.  Joe Pickett had good reason to dislike Dallas Cates, even if he was a rodeo champion, and now he has even more - Joe's eighteen-year-old daughter, April, has run off with him.

And then comes even worse news: the body of a girl has been found in a ditch along the highway - alive, but just barely, the victim of blunt-force trauma.  It is April, and the doctors don't know if she'll recover.  Cates denies having anything to do with it - says she ran off from him, too - and there's evidence that points to another man.  But Joe knows in his gut who's responsible.  What he doesn't know is the kind of danger he's about to encounter.  Cates is bad enough, but Cates's family is like none Joe has ever met before.

Joe's going to find out the truth, even if it kills him.  And this time, it just might.

Nate Romanowski always knew trouble was coming out of his past.  Now it's here, and it's coming for his friend Joe Pickett.  In 1999, Nate was in a secret special forces unit in Central Asia, when a colleague did something terrible.  Now the man has incentive to eliminate anyone who knows about it, and Nate can guess exactly how he'll do it when it comes to his case - by striking at Nate's friends to draw him out.

The entire Pickett family will be a target, and the only way to fight back will be outside the law.

Nate is off the grid when he is suddenly confronted by a small team of elite professional operators.  They want to make a deal.  They need help destroying a domestic terror cell in the Red Desert, and in return, will make Nate's criminal record disappear.  But they are not what they seem - they have a very different plan in mind, one that might just take them all down.

Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett and his wife, Marybeth, make separate discoveries that put the Pickett family in a pair of killers' crosshairs in this thrilling new novel in the bestselling series.


A day before the three Pickett girls come home for Thanksgiving, Joe is called out for a moose-poaching incident that turns out to be something much more sinister: a local fishing guide has been brutally tortured and murdered.  At the same time, Marybeth opens an unmarked package at the library where she works and finds a photo album that belonged to an infamous Nazi official.  Who left it there?  And why?

She learns that during World War II, several Wyoming soldiers were part of the first American company to reach Hitler's Eagle's Nest retreat in the Alps - and one of them took the Führer's personal photo album.  Did another take this one and keep it all these years?  When a close neighbor is murdered, Joe and Marybeth face new questions: Who is after the book?  And how will they solve its mystery before someone hurts them... or their girls?

Meanwhile, Nate Romanowski is on the hunt for the man who stole his falcons and attacked his wife.  Using a network of fellow falconers, Nate tracks the man from one city to another.  Even as he grasps the true threat his quarry presents, Nate swoops in for the kill - and a stunning final showdown.

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.

W
hile tracking a wounded elk in the midst of an epic Rocky Mountain spring snowstorm, Joe Pickett makes a startling and gruesome discovery: the frozen and mutilated body of a man who has obviously trespassed on a private ranch and was killed near the location of a mysterious high-tech structure.  Joe also finds the man's vehicle on an isolated mountainside - the victim's ID indicates that he is a prominent University of Wyoming professor.  When Joe attempts to learn more, his investigation is obstructed by federal agents, extremists, and Governor Colter Allen.

Nate Romanowski is rebuilding his falconry company - and financing this through crypto mining with the assistance of Geronimo Jones.  Nate is then approached by a shadowy group of local militant activists that is gaining in power and influence, and demanding that Wyoming join other western states and secede from the union - by force, if necessary.  They ask Nate to throw in with them, but he's wary.  Should he trust them, or is he being set up?

As a storm of peril gathers around them, Joe and Nate confront it in different ways - and maybe, for the first time, on opposite sides.

A Joe Pickett Novel

Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett encounters bad behavior on his own turf - and comes up against the Department of Justice and the FBI - in the thrilling new novel from #1 New York Times-bestselling author C. J. Box.


The good news is that Joe Pickett has his job back, after his last adventure in The Disappeared.  The bad news is that he's learned a drone is killing wildlife - and the drone belongs to a mysterious and wealthy man whose son is dating Joe's own daughter Lucy.

When Joe tries to lay down the rules for the drone operator, he's asked by the FBI and the DOJ to stand down, which only makes him more suspicious.  Meanwhile, bodies are piling up in and around Joe's district in shocking numbers.  He begins to fear that the Wolf Pack, four vicious killers working on behalf of the Sinaloa cartel, has arrived.  Their target seems to be the mystery man and everyone - including Joe, Nate, and others - who is associated with him.
