I am loving ALL the Joe Pickett books! I love that C.J. Box has developed such an honest, honorable, and all around GOOD guy in Joe Pickett. All of the characters are so well developed. Joe, Marybeth, Sheridan, and Nate are so perfectly flawed and real yet so full of integrity and character.
The Wyoming landscape with all of the conflicting factions battling over the land and the resources is fascinating. It certainly explains the very independent breed of people who live there. People who very much resent a Joe Pickett type. Joe takes his job and responsibilities very seriously and can't let go if he feels something is amiss. He's not arrogant, but he stands on his principals and doesn't hesitate to say what he believes.
In this book some really weird things are taking place, and Joe is assigned to a joint task force to solve the mysterious crimes. Personal agendas prevent the task force from making much headway, so Joe steps up his own part of the investigation with his loyal friend Nate Romanowski assisting. And ends up in a lot of trouble again.
