 Joe Pickett, 20

In the crosshairs, no one is safe.

In the new Joe Pickett novel, the Wyoming game warden must investigate an attempted assassination on his own turf...

Wyoming's Twelve Sleep County is shaken when a would-be assassin takes aim at a local judge. Their shot narrowly misses, severely wounding the judge's wife. All local law enforcement officers – including game warden Joe Pickett – are called in to track down the shooter.

The shot appears to have been taken from an almost impossible distance. Inevitably, the Feds' first suspect is ex-special forces operative, Nate Romanowski. The only way Joe will be able to prove his friend's innocence is by finding the real shooter.

Meanwhile, a startling grizzly attack in the next county draws Joe across the border to join the rescue efforts. But something in the victim's account isn't adding up, and Joe suspects all is not as it appears...

Beset by threats both man-made and natural, Joe Pickett must go to great lengths to keep his loved ones safe and solve an impossible crime in the riveting new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author C.J. Box.

REVIEWS
'The book is far more than a shoot-em-up modern western and shows that even the natural beauty of wild Wyoming has not been spared the curse of the illicit trade in, and addiction to, prescription drugs'
Shots E-Zine
'Readers new to the books of C.J. Box will be charmed enough by this new instalment to seek out his back catalogue. New ones will find this to be one of their better literary discoveries'
Shots Magazine
'The wide-open skies of the Wyoming location seem to breed opinionated loudmouths who inevitably complicate the work of the righteous, against whom Joe and Nate's understated expertise and natural abilities show to advantage. This series continues to improve'
