Shadows Reel
Shadows Reel by C.J. Box
 Joe Pickett, 22

Shadows from the past spell danger in the present...

A day before Joe and Marybeth Pickett's girls come home for Thanksgiving, Joe is called out for a poaching incident that turns out to be something much more sinister: a local fishing guide has been brutally tortured and murdered.

At the same time, Marybeth opens an unmarked package at work and finds a photo album that belonged to an infamous Nazi. During World War II, several Wyoming soldiers were in the group who fought to Hitler's Eagle's Nest retreat in the Alps – and one of them took the Führer's personal photo album. But who took the second book – and why reveal it now?

When a close neighbour is murdered, Joe and Marybeth face a race against time: how will they solve the mystery of the book before someone hurts them... or their girls?

Meanwhile, Joe's associate, falconer Nate Romanowski, is on the hunt for the man who attacked his wife. Even as he grasps the true threat his quarry presents, Nate swoops in for the kill – and a stunning final showdown.
