In the new Joe Pickett thriller from C.J. Box, stories 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.
Meanwhile, Marybeth opens a package at work and finds a photo album that belonged to an infamous Nazi. Wyoming soldiers were in the group who fought their way to Hitler's Eagle's Nest retreat in World War II – and one took the Führer's personal photo album. But who took the second book, and why reveal it now?
When another murder occurs, 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, hunts 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.
