Publisher's Summary

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.

Joe Pickett returns! Terrific mystery!

If you're new to the Joe Pickett series, you're in for a treat, but don't start here. The 17 books (plus a novella and short story) are best read in order since the characters age and evolve. Not that it is necessary to read every one; nevertheless, all but a few are 4- or 5-stars. Even though it seems clear from the outset who the villain is, Joe follows his instincts in search of motive and opportunity. As usual, he is assisted by his stalwart wife Marybeth, an attorney and librarian, as well as by his strange friend Nate Romanowski toward the end. (Calling Joe "Dudley Do-right", Nate has his own moral code and serves as a counterpoint to Joe.) If you don't like police procedurals, you may find this story a bit slow and disappointing, but there is more to a mystery than whodunit. Following "Off the Grid," which, unlike most fans, I found to be a huge misstep for Box (and can be skipped,) I was pleased to see him return to form. There are some minor technical errors concerning the functioning of an iPhone, but, unless you are an engineer, you probably won't even notice. Anyway, this is fiction after all.
As always, David Chandler is a superb reader.
I look forward to the next in the series.
