New York Times - best-selling writer C. J. Box returns with a thrilling new novel featuring Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett.
She was gone. Joe Pickett had good reason to dislike Dallas Cates, even if he was a rodeo champion, and now he has even more: Joe's 18-year-old ward, April, has run off with him. And then comes even worse news: The body of a girl has been found in a ditch along the highway - alive but just barely, the victim of blunt-force trauma.
It is April, and the doctors aren't sure if she'll recover. Cates denies having anything to do with it - says she ran away from him, too - and there's evidence that points to another man. But Joe knows in his gut who's responsible. What he doesn't know is the kind of danger he's about to encounter.
Cates is bad enough, but Cates' family is like none Joe has ever met before. Joe's going to find out the truth even if it kills him. But this time it just might.

I have a couple of complaints with this book as well as with all of his books. My first complaint is that his books are so enjoyable it is very hard to stop listening to them. Because of this I lose one night of sleep in order to finish the book. My second complaint is that because it takes less than 24 hours to listen to the book I have to wait another 6 months to a year before the next book is released. Thanks Chuck for another great listen! Love narrator David Chandler!
I'm a big fan of the CJ Box series and this one did not disappoint. I could not put it down and recommend it to all the Joe Pickett fans. Five stars!
This story line was great and kept you thinking trying to put all the pieces together unit the end. Very good job of blending all the elements and characters.
I always enjoy the latest Joe Pickett and this one was certainly worth waiting for. The story started off fast and kept going at a breathtaking pace. Yes - Joe ruins another pickup. If you are a Joe Pickett fan this is a five star listen all the way around!
Audible has changed my life! Dry , itchy eyes were destroying one of my greatest pleasures - reading. Now I am experiencing books again!
This was my first C.J. Box Joe Pickett mystery. Yet I didn't feel lost, as someone starting a series at the 15th book might well be. These are fully developed characters, and the story is self-contained - it stands on its own without backstories. There's a real sense of place and character - in other words, great writing!
Now I have a lot of catching up to do. I will definitely go back to the first book and look forward to learning more about the Pickett universe. If the 15th book is this fresh and new, I can't go wrong.
I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
Endangered is the 15th book in CJ Box's Joe Pickett series. Like most of the others it is superb. It likely has more suspense than most of his other novels. David Chandler does his normal fine job of narration.
I have enjoyed all the Joe Pickett novels. I always enjoy when falconer Nate is part of the story. The women in this story were especially vivid. This is one of the best C. J. Box novels.
