"Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend." Martin Luther King, Jr.

GIVEAWAY


C.J. Box has been entertaining his fans with the activities of Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett with twelve previous novels.

In the region of the Bighorn Mountains, a friend of Nate Romanowski uses his last words to say, "the five, they've deployed." Nate was sorry for his friend's death but knew they'd be coming for him.

Soon afterward, three local men make an unsuccessful attempt on Nate's life. When the body of these three men are found, it stirs a local uproar.

Nate had been in a specialized military unit and done some things that he'd rather forget. Unfortunately, the leader of this group wanted to make sure that Nate didn't disclose what he knew.

It is interesting to follow Nate as he travels through the picturesque mountain ranges of Wyoming and surrounding areas. It makes the reader consider if this is one of the few places in America that stands as it was when our forefathers were arriving in America.

Nate meets a few of his select friends but his enemies seem to know of his movements.

His friend, Joe Pike, a game warden in Wyoming, is given a recruit to train and is dealing with his daughter, Sheriden's life as she enters college.

Nate and Joe's paths connect and lead the reader through an adventurous mystery. In addition, we are given some important lessons of life, including the appreciation of loyalty and friendship. The opposite of friendship, betrayal, is also dealt with.

There were a few loose ends left open for future stories in the series and although some of the action was predictable, this was an interesting and enjoyable read.

Those sentences make the book sound like a worthwhile read.

Thanks for the post, Mike.

A game warden as the main character is rather unique.
