"The past comes back to haunt game warden Joe Pickett and his family with devastating effect in the thrilling new novel from the #1 New York Times-bestselling author. The plane circled in the dark. Joe Pickett could just make out down below a figure in the snow and timber, and then three other figures closing in. There was nothing he could do about it. And Joe knew that he might be their next target. The Cates family had always been a bad lot. Game warden Joe Pickett had been able to strike a fierce blow against them when the life of his daughter April had been endangered, but he'd always wondered if there'd be a day of reckoning. He's not wondering any longer. Joe knows they're coming after him and his family now. He has his friend Nate by his side, but will that be enough this time? All he can do is prepare. and wait for them to make the first move"--… (lisätietoja)

This is my first book by C.J. Box, loved it. Fast pace thriller taken place in Wyoming. I find myself avoiding mystery books with plot in large cities like Los Angeles or NYC. Looking forward to read more by this author. ( )

3.5 stars--Of the three Joe Pickett novels I found on the library sale shelf, I would say this one was the best of the three. I haven't read the book where Dallas Cates and April Pickett were featured (I assume there is one) but I've read about Dallas in one of the other novels so I was somewhat familiar with the incident. This novel reveals more about the Cates family than I knew previously and more about how their lives intersected with that of the Pickett family. I also got to meet Marybeth's mother for the first time. Readers also get to hear what's happened with Nate and Liv.

The plot of the novel starts from the first chapter and keeps going (which is different than the other two novels in this series that I've read). I didn't put it all together until the author revealed how it was done. I have no idea if there is such a thing as a tongue controlled wheelchair. I'm guessing not since if there was, I would think that famous people would have had one rather than the sip-and-puff type. I found the fact that it contained an iPhone interesting, especially since it was related to what was supposed to be a cellphone free zone. ( )

In this 17th book in the series, Joe is in the sights of former rodeo star Dallas Cates, who just got out of prison. Several folks get killed or injured. Missy shows up again, married to a flashy defense lawyer. New governor who wants more range rider stuff....maybe later. Nate is pardoned and openly helps in the end. Satisfying read/listen. ( )

If you're new to the Joe Pickett series, you're in for a treat, but don't start here. The 17 books (plus a novella and short story) are best read in order since the characters age and evolve. Not that it is necessary to read every one; nevertheless, all but a few are 4- or 5-stars. I listened to the audible version, and, as always, David Chandler is a superb reader.

Even though it seems clear from the outset who the villain is, Joe follows his instincts in search of motive and opportunity. As usual, he is assisted by his stalwart wife Marybeth, an attorney and librarian, as well as by his strange friend Nate Romanowski toward the end. (Calling Joe "Dudley Do-right", Nate has his own moral code and serves as a counterpoint to Joe.) If you don't like police procedurals, you may find this story a bit slow and disappointing, but there is more to a mystery than whodunit. Following "Off the Grid," which, unlike most fans, I found to be a huge misstep for Box (and recommend skipping,) I was pleased to see him return to form. There are some minor technical errors concerning the functioning of an iPhone, but, unless you are an engineer, you probably won't even notice. Anyway, this is fiction after all. I look forward to the next in the series. ( )

An excellent entry in this very fine series. Jo's family is threatened by a former felon. Lots of action involving his great supporting cast Marybeth does the research and Joe is Joe. This time, it is their house that is destroyed. A cameo by Nate makes for a dramatic finish. ( )
