Introduction

The extraordinary new Joe Pickett novel from the Edgar Award-winning author.

"Box's series is the gold standard," wrote Library Journal about Below Zero, but never has he written a novel as harrowing as Nowhere to Run.

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.

Joe Picket is a friend I'd like to have (and Nate too)! A modern tough-guy cowboy tale. Good guys vs. Bad guys, gunslinging and a crazy mother in law. What's not to like?

Joe Picket is a believable character who is strongly committed to his role as game warden for the state of Wyoming. The other elements of this story are taken from true events: missing runner, twins who... (read more)
