Off the Grid
Off the Grid C.J. Box
 Joe Pickett, 16

There's no hiding off the grid.

Joe Pickett's old friend Nate Romanowski is off the grid, lying low while the FBI search for him. But they're not the only ones looking. Nate finds himself confronted by agents who need his help assessing a potential terror threat in Wyoming's Red Desert – in return they'll make Nate's criminal record disappear. Nate knows they can't be trusted – but with his liberty at stake, he has to comply... for now.

Meanwhile, Joe's heading south, under orders from State Governor Rulon to investigate a rash of crimes and an uptick in secretive federal activity along Interstate 80...

As they pursue their quarries, both men will be drawn deep into the Red Desert, 9,000 square miles of bleak, punishing terrain, home to a secret that could take them both down.

'I love Joe Pickett'
Michael Connelly
'Solid-gold A-list must-read'
Lee Child
'Heart-stoppingly good'
Daily Mail
'Exhilarating ... Gung-ho stuff'
Sunday Times
'Game Warden Joe Pickett is as interesting as ever in his sixteenth adventure ... Box manages to make the wide open spaces of the bleak, stony Red Desert seem interesting'
Literary Review
'A real treat ... The glorious wildlife and natural beauty of Wyoming come through loud and clear ... I guess that after 16 books in the series, you might expect another Joe Pickett thriller to be a little tired and formulaic – but Off the Grid is absolutely not. It is a great read for anyone who loves a really good thriller written by a master of the art'
TripFiction
'Like Box's other work [this] reflects his enthusiasms: the wild animals that make the inhospitable uplands of Wyoming their home, hawking and falcons especially, and guns. Much of this is interesting if only because on these subjects Box clearly knows what he is talking about, and his love of the desert comes through'
