Publisher's Summary

It's an idyllic late-summer day in Saddlestring, Wyoming, and game warden Joe Pickett is fly-fishing with his two daughters when he stumbles upon the mutilated body of a moose. Whatever - or whoever - attacked the animal was ruthless: half the animal's face has been sliced away, the skin peeled back from the flesh. Shaken by the sight, Joe starts to investigate what he hopes in an isolated incident.

Days later, after the discovery of a small herd of mutilated cattle, Joe realizes this is something much more terrifying than he could have imagined. Local authorities are quick to label the attacks the work of a grizzly bear, but Joe knows otherwise. The cuts on the moose and the cattle were too clean, too precise, to have been made by jagged teeth. Are the animals only practice for a killer about to move on to another, more challenging prey?

Soon afterward, Joe's worst fears are confirmed. The bodies of two men are found within hours of each other, in separate locations, their wounds eerily similar to those found on the moose and cattle. There's a vicious killer, a modern-day Jack the Ripper, on the loose in Saddlestring - and it appears his rampage is just beginning.

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

    "Just a great book in a great series"

    All the characters are becoming more and more rounded. We get more insight with each book in the series. If you like the Longmire series you'll love all of these too.

    Story
    "Twistingly Complex"

    This is my 4th or 5th Joe Picket novel by C.J. Box. And this may be the most complex plot of them all, growing deeper and deeper. Box knows how to build tension, picking up the pace as the climax nears until I find myself grasping for excuses to drive somewhere, run an errand, anything to have time to listen to more of the story.

    Besides the main characters, Box creates amazingly memorable secondary characters, such as Not Ike, one of two black men in the town who people constantly mix up. One is Ike, and his cousin becomes known as Not Ike. Where does he come up with this stuff? It all adds to the deep realism that makes me feel like I've been to Saddlestring, Wyoming and met these people.

    Great story. Highly recommended.

    Story
    "Joe Pickett at his best!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, because I'm never disappointed by a Joe Pickett story. I like Joe and I like his family. I like them as people and I like their values.


    Any additional comments?

    If you haven't listened to a book in the Joe Pickett series, do yourself a favor and indulge in one.

    "another good one"

    I like Box's work, and Chandler's narration goes well with the prose. The situations are unusual enough and complex enough to be interesting, the characters deep enough to be engaging, the settings strong and the prose eloquent, even moving. The bad guys tend to be over-the-top bad, but at least Box has some surprise villains here. The family dramas wear on me after a while, but some might find them the best part.

    "Great series."

    This is a good series if you like the main character to have flaws. Not everything is wrapped up at the end of each book with a neat bow. The narrator is fantastic.

    Story
    "Go Nate"

    Wyoming Game Warden Joe Pickett is assigned to a cop task force whose objective is to solve a couple of murders and some cow mutilations. Author cleverly does not take sides in the latter. Of course, Joe's wife and kids are involved. Nate, my favorite character and an off-the-grid falconer, gives no quarter and reflects what we all want to do in the situation. Nate also provides a look at some paranormal activities and seems always to be the one who shows Joe the way. In the end, everyone in town seems involved in the murders/mutilations. Descriptive of small town Western America.

    "A Good Read"

    I enjoyed this book. It was an easy read (listen). Had enough twists and turns to hold my interest. I've read several of the Joe Pickett books. Joe is just an ordinary guy, not super human, which is what I enjoy.
