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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

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.

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.

One of Box's Best

If you could sum up Nowhere to Run in three words, what would they be?

Exciting. Action. Intrigue.

What about David Chandler’s performance did you like?

Chandler's performance of Box's books is outstanding. Since he has done the whole Joe Pickett series, he is 'Joe Pickett' and the other characters. Well done on this one, as usual.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The hunters, become... The hunted.

No Where to Run

Good story, I liked the way it was told. It was pretty close to how things go with the government and our freedom and rights.

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.

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!

More overtly political than typical

Box is clearly sympathetic to some of the extreme anti-government elements in the West, but that rather oozes in this book, to the extent that it detracted from the story and listening. While he typically is Alt right political, this book went to far for this long term Box/Pickett fan.
