Nowhere to Run: A Joe Pickett Novel | [C. J. Box]

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)

    "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.

    "Gory, but was needed to tell the story!"

    Very good listen! My husband and I enjoyed it very much! Gory, and very descriptive details in some parts, but needed to portray the story and the plot. Well written and well read. Thanks for a nice series. Exciting and entertaining.

    Story
    "Yup, each book is better then the one prior."

    I started approx 6 months ago with the first and have not stopped. I enjoy the moment(s) I have with my book(s). If you like, excitement, thrills, suspense then give this roller coaster Novel a chance. Nice.

    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.

    Story
    "Not my favorite Joe Pickett Novel"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Excellent narration and suspense, but frustrating.


    What was most disappointing about C. J. Box’s story?

    I really couldn't help feeling that the main character is the Barney Fife of game wardens in this novel. Really! I wouldn't have been surprised to see the Governor give Joe only one bullet.

    "Joe Picket makes some hard choices."

    Wow, this was a gripping Joe Picket story. His struggles are epic, his decisions tough, the consequences dire. How will he continue? Thank you C.J. Box!
