I'm a big CJ Box fan and am reading the Joe Pickett series in order. I think I've given them all five stars, but this one stood out for even this fan.

The action and pacing are quick, believable and the book is tightly written. I flew threw the couple-of hundred pages and went "wow" at the end in acknowledgement of the great writing Box puts on display.

The action here is in eastern Wyoming and some of the best characters are part of the tale. Nate Romanowski has a very interesting role and Governor Rulon (love his character) sets the wheels in motion by once again giving his most trusted (but kept at arm's length until needed) game warden a special assignment. As usual, Joe and Marybeth's trio of daughters are growing and as young women/older teens are constantly on Joe Pickett's mind as he tries to deal with another harrowing and violent situation.

Great and believable escapist reading and continue to love the author's ability to evoke natural Wyoming as a key component of his stories.
