It''s Joe Pickett''s last week as a temporary game warden in the mountain town of Baggs, Wyoming, but his conscience won''t let him leave without checking out the strange reports coming from the wilderness--and the disappearance of an Olympic hopeful.
From the Publisher:
It's Joe Pickett's last week as a temporary game warden in the mountain town of Baggs, Wyoming, but his conscience won't let him leave without checking out the strange reports coming from the wilderness: camps looted, tents slashed, elk butchered. What awaits him is like something out of an old campfire tale, except this story is all too real-and all too deadly.
Annotation:
Just as Joe Pickett's term as a temporary warden in a remote sector of Wyoming is drawing to a close, he gets called to an area where a female Olympic runner disappeared a few years before, opening one of his darkest investigations yet. What at first he suspects of being an over-active imagination mixed with paranoia turns out to be right-on instincts when Pickett gets attacked in the woods by two men and a woman. Could this woman be the missing runner? Her parents certainly hope so. Are the men poachers who have been ravishing the area? Urged by his powerful conscience, Pickett returns to search find his attackers. Box complicates this suspenseful story with considerations about avarice and the role that the government should play in our lives.

Praise

"Box inexorably builds Joe's harrowing personal quest into a complex meditation on human greed and government corruption. A lone black wolf, possibly Box's symbol for the wilderness within and without the human soul, tracks Joe throughout this terrible, beautiful tale of courage and compassion and culpability." (starred review) 02/15/2010

"[I]t's great to see the usual Box strengths--exhilarating landscapes, high adventure, thrilling suspense, surprising amoral quandaries--done to a turn." (starred review) 02/15/2010
