Joe Pickett's in his last week as the temporary game warden in the town of Baggs, Wyoming, but there have been strange things going on in the mountains, and his conscience won't let him leave without checking them out: reports of camps looted, tents slashed, elk butchered. And then there's the runner who simply vanished one day.

After a relative disappointment in book 9 of the Joe Pickett series, CJ Box returns to greatness in Book 10. Box's vivid descriptions of the WY wilderness' natural beauty is especially enjoyable as is the light he shines on the tensions present in our society's relationship with personal liberty and natural resources. Well worth the time.

Imagine a dispossessed mountain man, living wild in Wyoming's rugged national parkland, hewing his own arrow heads and arrows, expertly tracking, trapping and dressing elk and other prey with surgical dexterity. Then imagine he has a twin brother equally skilled at roughing it. And now imagine game warden Joe Pickett accosting them for not having valid fishing licenses. Keep in mind that he just saw one of them bite the head off a fish and devour it! Now watch Joe try and make it back alive!

I feel like the ever-present hyperbolic copy that proclaimed Forrest J. Ackerman's monthly "Famous Monsters of Filmland" the "Best Issue Ever!" but once again C.J.Box has delivered the goods! This is the twelfth book of his I've read, all inclusive and chronological from the first Joe Pickett and two "stand alone" titles and each has been a satisfying and entertaining read! I'll be back for more soon.

Not a particularly good read. The author goes to extremes to justify all manner of mindless violence. Characters not particularly believable.

More an apology for the mindless paranoia of some in our population than a well written book.

4/5 stars; the story begins with a simple thread that continues to weave into an epic storyline. I drop a star because certain elements could have been left out and the ending seemed to serve the narrative more than the characters. Would make an excellent film.
