Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett must investigate an attempted murder—a crime committed from a confoundingly long distance—in the riveting new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author C. J. Box. When Joe Pickett is asked to join the rescue efforts for the victim of a startling grizzly attack, he reluctantly leaves his district behind. One survivor of the grizzly’s rampage tells a bizarre story, but just as Joe begins to suspect the attack is not what it seems, he is brought home by an emergency on his own turf. Someone has targeted a prominent local judge, shooting at him from a seemingly impossible distance. While the judge was not hit, his wife is severely wounded, and it is up to Joe to find answers—and the shooter. The search for the would-be assassin becomes personal when Joe’s best friend, Nate Romanowski —just as he’s adjusting to the arrival of his first child—falls under suspicion for the crime. It’s a race against the clock as Joe tries to clear Nate’s name and identify the real shooter, all while deciphering the grizzly encounter. Beset by threats both man-made and natural, the two men must go to great lengths to keep their loved ones safe.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

"[A] fast-paced, tightly written tale…The main plot, along with several subplots, is filled with so many twists and red herrings that Box keeps readers guessing almost to the end.” Associated Press
“Box’s Joe Pickett series is the best franchise in print today, regardless of genre—period. Pickett, a Wyoming game warden, is a special character, and Box has developed him (and Joe’s family) in a way rarely seen in print or on the screen. Box continues to use his deep cast of characters masterfully.” Real Book Spy
“Clever plotting keeps this conspiracy yarn moving briskly, and the scenes depicting Nate’s abuse while in prison are harrowing. This is another top-flight crime yarn illustrating why Box’s readers are never happier than when Joe and Nate have reason to ‘get western.’” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Fans of this outstanding series will know better than to place their money against Joe.” Kirkus Reviews
“Box has secured his reputation as an author who can take this increasingly popular genre—the modern western—and make it do whatever he wants…with a clear, easy style that plays nicely against the pulse-pounding tension. Box remains the gold standard among writers of modern western-mystery blends.” Booklist
