Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett encounters bad behavior on his own turf--only to have the FBI and the DOJ ask him to stand down--in the thrilling new novel from #1 New York Times-bestselling author C.J. Box. The good news is that Joe Pickett has his job back, after his last adventure in The Disappeared. The bad news is that he's come to learn that a drone is killing wildlife--and the drone belongs to a mysterious and wealthy man whose grandson is dating Joe's own daughter, Lucy. When Joe tries to lay down the rules for the drone operator, he's asked by the FBI and the DOJ to stand down, which only makes him more suspicious. Meanwhile, bodies are piling up in and around Joe's district in shocking numbers. He begins to fear that a pack of four vicious killers working on behalf of the Sinaloa cartel known as the Wolf Pack have arrived. Their target seems to be the mystery man and everyone--including Joe, Nate, and others--who are associated with him. Teaming up with a female game warden (based on a real person, one of the few female game wardens at work in Wyoming today) to confront these assassins, Joe finds himself in the most violent and dangerous predicament he's ever faced.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A thriller of rare depth and emotion, featuring pitch-perfect plotting and characterizations every bit the equal of Cormac McCarthy and Larry McMurtry.” Providence Journal
Wolf Pack is the most unexpected, relentless, and action-packed novel [that Box has] ever written.” Real Book Spy (featured review)
“Reading Box’s new book each year…is similar to catching up with old friends you haven’t seen in a while…Whereas most series are losing steam and becoming repetitive this deep into their run, Box continues to find brilliant new ways to shake things up.” Crime Reads
“Excellentt…The action-packed final quarter of the book ranks among Joe and Nate’s best and bloodiest confrontations. Box is the king of contemporary crime fiction set in the West.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“One of Box’s most tightly wound tales, with more thrills than a snowy road on a steep mountain and more authority than the governor of Wyoming.” Kirkus Reviews
“Box takes familiar elements of his long-running series—the upstanding Joe, the renegade Nate, a daughter in danger, and a threat from outside—and seamlessly combines them into a read that makes your heart race…Half mystery, half thriller, totally worthwhile.” Booklist
