The plane circled in the dark. Joe Pickett could just make out down below a figure in the snow and timber, and then three other figures closing in. There was nothing he could do about it. And Joe knew that he might be their next target.
The Cates family had always been a bad lot. Game warden Joe Pickett had been able to strike a fierce blow against them when the life of his daughter April had been endangered, but he'd always wondered if there'd be a day of reckoning. He's not wondering any longer. Joe knows they're coming after him and his family now. He has his friend Nate by his side, but will that be enough this time? All he can do is prepare...and wait for them to make the first move.

This was essentially a follow on story from an earlier novel. As such, it didn't really offer much of interest and was not very engaging. To compound matters, the narrator was awful. He reads like someone not proficient with reading. By that, I mean he pronounces every syllable distinctly rather than allowing the words to flow as they would in normal conversation. This makes for an uncomfortable listen. Had this been some other writer, I probably would have quit without finishing.
I've enjoyed the entire Joe Pickett series, each book is captivating, intriguing and this one doesn't disappoint. Good suspense in this book, narrator does a splendid job with all the characters. You don't need to start at the first of the series to enjoy these books, but it helps. You will get drawn into the splendid characters of each book in the series.
Loved this book! Wish it went on longer! David Chandler is incredible as a narrator very down to earth sounding which makes the characters come to life. Just another great CJ Box book you won't be able to put down. I have a hard time doing anything else when reading these. I'd rate this at five stars but can't figure it out on my phone. The only criticism I have is that a few wrong names were there and a few details from past novels got a bit misconstrued which for any writer is a bit sloppy, but forgivable in the case of these wonderful books.
More detail and depth
David Always does a great job
Book ended before it got you interested in its outcome
I am a long haul owner operator truck driver, listening to audio books has been a salvation for me.
one of my most favorite series, I was excited when I saw this book come out. Joe Pickett is a no nonsense straight up good guy, game ranger that loves his wife and daughters. He is always getting into some kind of trouble, and his best buddy and confidant Nate Rominalski ( I might of misspelled that last name ) is always at his side to help straighten things out. I love this series!! keep them PLEASE!! :)
