"Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett has two lethal cases to contend with in the electrifying new novel from #1 New York Times-bestselling author C. J. Box. 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 female British executive never came home from the high-end guest ranch she was visiting, and the British Embassy is pressing hard. Pickett knows that happens sometimes--these ranches are stocked with handsome young cowboys, and "ranch romances" aren't uncommon. But no sign of her months after she vanished? That suggests something else. At the same time, his friend Nate Romanowski has asked Joe to intervene with the feds on behalf of falconers who can no longer hunt with eagles even though their permits are in order. Who is blocking the falconers and why? The more he investigates both cases, the more someone wants him to go away. Is it because of the missing woman or because he's become Nate's advocate? Or are they somehow connected? The answers, when they come, will be even worse than he'd imagined"-- Provided by publisher.

It's a good, but not great book by C. J. Box. On about page 70, I remember thinking, "When is the story going to start?" Up to that point it was just filler. Finally the story began and it was good until the end. The conclusion was very unsatisfying and not like all the other Joe Pickett books where truth and justice prevail. It would have been a perfect read if Box had deleted the first 70 pages and added them to the end with a great ending.

We haven't missed a book yet that involved Joe Pickett, his family and his friend Nate. At first it was slow but it quickly became a thrill to see what happens. We love these books and this one is going to be a must read. Can't wait till the next one is here.

Ahh. Getting to read a new book about Joe Pickett and his family is like visiting with one of my favorite old friends. (And we mustn't forget Nate!) It's been an interesting journey seeing Sheridan grow up from a 7-year old to a young woman of 23, who reminds me so much of her dad. I highly recommend this series!!!
