In the new Joe Pickett thriller from C.J. Box, stories from the past spell danger in the present...

When game warden Joe Pickett is called out to a poaching incident just before Thanksgiving, it turns out to be far more sinister: a local man has been brutally tortured and murdered.

Meanwhile, Joe's wife Marybeth receives a sinister package at work: the photo album of an infamous Nazi. A Wyoming soldier took Hitler's personal photo album during the dying days of World War II. But who took the second book – and why reveal it now?

When a second murder occurs, Joe and Marybeth face a race against time: how will they solve the mystery before someone targets them... or their girls?

Meanwhile Joe's associate, falconer Nate Romanowski, hunts the man who attacked his wife. Nate soon swoops in for the kill – and a stunning final showdown.

'With two storylines, one a complete mystery, and one a race to locate the outlaw Soledad, this is a compelling read. On the one side a fascinating mystery that dates back to World War 2, and on the other, a fast-paced chase as Nate hunts the man who stole from him and beat his wife' Promoting Crime Fiction

'[A] stylish modern western' Daily Mail

'Box is the king of contemporary crime fiction set in the West' Publishers Weekly starred review, on Wolf Pack.
'One of his most tightly wound tales, with more thrills than a snowy road on a steep mountain and more authority than the governor of Wyoming' Kirkus Reviews, on Wolf Pack.
'A masterful storyteller who writes sublimely' Irish Independent.
'Box's sparse and pragmatic prose is the perfect complement to the wilderness vistas Pickett knows like the back of his hand. This is terrific reading entertainment, as riveting as it is relentless' Providence Journal, on Dark Sky.
'It's an intense and gripping story, set in wild, mountainous country vividly described by Box'
Journal Inquirer, on Dark Sky
