The extraordinary new Joe Pickett novel from the Edgar Award-winning author.

"Box's series is the gold standard," wrote Library Journal about Below Zero , but never has he written a novel as harrowing as Nowhere to Run .

Joe Pickett's in his last week as the temporary game warden in the town of Baggs, Wyoming, but there have been strange things going on in the mountains, and his conscience won't let him leave without checking them out: reports of camps looted, tents slashed, elk butchered. And then there's the runner who simply vanished one day. Joe doesn't mind admitting that the farther he rides, the more he wishes he could just turn around and go home. And he is right to be concerned. Because what awaits him is like nothing he's ever dealt with, like something out of an old story, except this is all too real and too deadly. When he'd first saddled up, he'd thought of this as his last patrol. What he hadn't known was just how accurate that thought might turn out to be.

I feel like the ever-present hyperbolic copy that proclaimed Forrest J. Ackerman's monthly "Famous Monsters of Filmland" the "Best Issue Ever!" but once again C.J.Box has delivered the goods! This is the twelfth book of his I've read, all inclusive and chronological from the first Joe Pickett and two "stand alone" titles and each has been a satisfying and entertaining read! I'll be back for more soon.

Not a particularly good read. The author goes to extremes to justify all manner of mindless violence. Characters not particularly believable.

More an apology for the mindless paranoia of some in our population than a well written book.

4/5 stars; the story begins with a simple thread that continues to weave into an epic storyline. I drop a star because certain elements could have been left out and the ending seemed to serve the narrative more than the characters. Would make an excellent film.
