Probably the worst in the Joe Pickett series. Joe is is more of an FBI agent than game warden. The characters don’t seem as realistic in this book and the author constantly has to explain each characters’ history in case this is the readers first Picket book. The storyline is all over the place. It’s more like John Wick than Joe Pickett now. Just a really poor book. I expect so much more from C.J. Box!
