Wolf Pack Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett encounters bad behavior on his own turf - only to have the FBI and the DOJ ask him to stand down - in the thrilling new novel from number-one New York Times best-selling 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 come to learn that a drone is killing wildlife - and the drone belongs to a mysterious and wealthy man whose grandson 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 a pack of four vicious killers working on behalf of the Sinaloa cartel known as the Wolf Pack have arrived. Their target seems to be the mystery man and everyone - including Joe, Nate, and others - who are associated with him.
Teaming up with a female game warden (based on a real person, one of the few female game wardens at work in Wyoming today) to confront these assassins, Joe finds himself in the most violent and dangerous predicament he's ever faced.

STAND-ALONE: It can be read as a stand-alone, but the greatest appreciation will come for devotees of the series.
CLIFFHANGER. No. Although there surely will be more Pickett novels, this does not end with a cliffhanger.
If I were to rate this only based on the Audible narration, I’d be hard-pressed to rate it four stars, as the writing comes across as just a bit too much of an info dump. However, when I read the Kindle version, the info dump is much more invisible, so I am rating it more highly.
WRITING & EDITING: Professional. The flow is good, and the historical bits are interesting. Sometimes the inter-agency tension seems too drawn out, but, as someone who has witnessed just how antagonistic the various factions within the federal and state agencies can be, it had the feeling of authenticity.
BLUSH FACTOR: The number of eff words is more than you’ll want to read with your prayer group, probably, but it is not excessive for most folks. Certainly not for me. I mention it only for those for whom it might annoy.
No graphic sex, but some of the violence might disturb a few readers. I appreciated the realistic portrayal, though.
I enjoyed this murder mystery and consider it a fine Action-Adventure.
There are many different aspects to Wolf Pack than most of the Pickett series contain, but the storylines, and the bad characters, are just as devious as all other stories have been. I have to admit some stories go far beyond Joe's normal restraints, but hang in there and you will enjoy each and every exciting episode as they begin to fall in place.
Without hesitation, I definitely recommend this exciting masterpiece by the mastermind.behind the Joe Pickett series, Mr. C. J. Box. He certainly has had the uncanny ability to release nineteen exciting masterful performances of this series, most all of them were five star masterpieces! Fortunately I have had the opportunity to read each and every one of them in order. I anxiously await the next exciting adventure, although I know it will be at least a year before it will arrive! If you don't buy this outstanding story, the loss will definitely be yours!😤
I love this series and I love this author. I've read almost everything written by him, including all of this lengthy series, and he never disappoints (and I'm working on catching up on the couple of books I've missed after I finish this review). Wyoming happens to be one of my favorite states too so that adds a lot of appeal.
This is book #19 in the Joe Pickett series about Game Warden Joe Pickett of the Wyoming Fish and Game Department. Joe has his job back (after losing it temporarily in book #18) with the help of former Wyoming Governor Rulon acting as his attorney. And actually he gained some great benefits during the process.
In this tale, Joe ends up working with a female game warden from the next District over trying to track down an illegal drone operator who is harming wildlife. They get help from his falconer best friend Nate Romanowski.
Added into the mix are the FBI, the DOJ and some dangerous out-of-towners.
If you've enjoyed Box's other books, you'll surely love this one. Box is a consistently fine author and I highly recommend this latest book.
I'm off now to read SHOTS FIRED, a collection of ten short stories based in Joe Pickett's world, that I somehow missed before this.

This time, Joe has to track down a group of vicious assassins - the Wolf Pack, who have come to Saddlestring to take out a big shot drug criminal in the witness protection system. His transgressions against local wildlife, bring him to Joe Picket’s attention? Then all hell is let loose and once again, Joe and Nate have to go into action.
Long may CJ Box continue to write books in this series. With a hero like Joe, we are given a glimpse of life, very few of us will ever experience. I want to read more about him, not only as a wildlife warden but as a husband to Marybeth, a father to his three daughters and as a best friend to Nate. I will happily buy any future books.
Read in 2 days as just couldn't stop as usual. Highly recommended he series.
I only recently purchased "Wolf Pack" and I have been trying to refrain from reading it all in one sitting...it is very difficult to do this, as this latest story is totally living up to the standards he has set in the past. Extremely engaging.
For those book lovers who don't always consider that reviews, good or bad, are the best means of deciding on what they will purchase, or not, let me list a few of the authors I most enjoy, in no particular order, here goes - Rory Clements, C.J Samson, Winston Graham (Poldark), George Pelecanos, Robert B. Parker, Robert Crais, Mario Puzo and umpteen others!
OK maybe they won't appeal to everyone but perhaps my "good taste" (ha ha) will rub off and keep these impoverished authors or their descendants out of the foodbanks!
