Nowhere to Run: A Joe Pickett Novel

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

He's game: solve another mystery with Joe Pickett.

What the Critics Say

"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." (Publishers Weekly)

"Nowhere to Run, the tenth in the series, ranks with his best books....Readers should take note of their surroundings before opening this book: once they start reading, they won’t know what hit them." (Booklist)

    "Exciting"

    If you are an hunter and outdoors person this book is for you. My wife and I have listened to all the Joe Picket books we can find. All have made me want more. Chandler helps to make these books great.

    "The Best Yet"

    As a Wyoming born and raised and now a 70+ yr old retired Law Enforcement guy I have enjoyed all of Joe Pickett's adventures. This one is the Best. I don't know how C.J. keeps coming up with great stories.

    Story
    "JP needs to go to Absaroka County with Longmire!"

    I love Joe Pickett stories but I think the protagonist sheriff line needs to fade away. First it was Bud Barnam and now its McLanahan. There is always a real bad guy in these books why does the sheriff always have to be adversarial? It would be nice for Joe and family to move to Absaroka County (yes I know its fictional) and have Walt Longmire as Sheriff. Nate would get along great with Henry. I can picture Mary Beth and Vic chatting over lunch haha.

    "A great ride"

    Each one of these books in this Joe Pickett series gets better and better. CJ Box, has an incredible talent on growing each character Book after book. My only complaint is I wish he give us more in the endings. But I just love this series.

    "Inconsistent..."

    I hesitate to say anything negative about CJ box or any other author, since they wrote the books and I just listen to them. That being said, CJ box seems to be hit or miss. When he's hot, it's really good stuff. But this one is not so hot.

    "And there just just getting better."

    I thought that Box had lost his magic when I first started this story! Boy was I wrong. For me I think it's one of his best and they're just getting better. Thank you Mr Box.

    Story
    "enjoyable rural mystery thriller"

    This is part of the Joe Picket series, following the game warden in Wyoming. The start of this was edge-of-your-seat intensity, as Joe fights for his life to escape two crazy, rural brothers. Much of the rest of the novel focuses on who are those brothers, and why are they causing trouble. Is there a connection to a jogger who had disappeared in that area of the mountains? This part was less engaging but I still liked it. I enjoyed this novel mostly because I really like the Joe Picket character. He is a decent, believable character who does what he loves in spite of the tiny wages it pays for he and his wife to raise their girls. I like the rural setting as well. This is a rare time I listened to a second in a series, and will probably try another in the series at some point.
