Uncovering a Web of Criminals in Yellowstone
Reviewed in the United States on April 13, 2019
In this book, Joe Pickett is assigned by Wyoming's Governor to research why a group of environmentalists were killed in Yellowstone's "Zone of Death". I was not aware of this until reading this book but there is a small section of Yellowstone Park that is part of Idaho, where theoretically an individual could get away with murder. Since it is on US Government land and no one lives there, you can't convene a jury to try someone for a crime - and a person can not be found guilty without a jury trial. Bizarre! Thankfully, this has never happened except in this CJ Box book, so we don't know how things would proceed. Maybe the criminal would be taken to Cheyenne for trial, but then the criminal may get a good lawyer, like the murderer in this book, who is a lawyer, and push that his constitutional rights have been violated. Anyway, Joe Pickett is sent to this mess to figure out what happened and uncovers the web of criminals behind these mysterious murders which makes for an interesting story.
