A Joe Pickett novel from #1Â New York Times-bestselling author C.J. Box.Â
C.J. Box's debut novel, Open Season, with its memorable hero, thrilling plot, and vivid settings, was hailed by critics as suspenseful (New York Daily News), fascinating (USA Today), and heartfelt (The Washington Post Book World), a high-country Presumed InnocentÂ that moves like greased lighting (Kirkus Reviews). Now Box returns with a gripping and suspensful new mystery, as dramtic and brutal as its Wyoming setting.
When a massive explosion occurs deep within the forests of Twelve Sleep County and a colorful environmental activist appears to have perished in the blast, Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett is called to the scene to help investigate. The case is wrapped up quickly, explained as an environmental publicity stunt gone wrong, but Joe isn't convinced. He soon discovers clues that suggest aÂ deadly conspiracyâone that will test his courage, his survival skills, and his determination to âdo the right thingâ despite all costs.
Set against the rugged Wyoming landscape, Savage RunÂ is a righly textured novelâand an exciting confirmation of the talents of a writer hailed by Tony Hillerman as a great storyteller.
