Crazy, fast pace read One of my favorite in the series so far I couldn t read it fast enough and even let laundry pile up today to read because the suspense of the Hill family was something I could not wait for the reveal Bug changes in the end for the character landscapes and I am interested in seeing where Box takes it after Lone Range Very good read First Sentence For Wyoming Game Warden

another new truck He and neighboring game warden Katelyn Hamm also have a big problem with someone using a large drone to kill herds of animals It becomescomplicated when Joe learns that Lucy, one of his daughters is dating the son of the very wealthy man named Hill who owns the drone, and when Joe receives orders from above to leave Hill alone The drone is the least of the problems when it is suspected that four killers, known as the Wolf Pack, of the Sinaloa cartel, are in the area, and are after Hill and anyone who gets in their way One always learns new things when reading Box It s fascinating to know about the value of antlers and the horrible damage to a herd of deer caused by unscrupulous antler collectors It s an industry with regulations of which we would not otherwise know Box creates such fascinating characters Certainly, there are the recurring characters of Joe, his family, falconer Nate Romanowski and his now pregnant fianc Liz, but it s extra nice to have the female game warder of Katelyn Joe is such a well constructed character That he and his wife Marybeth have such a strong relationship and partnership where she, at times, provides Joe with informational assistance, gives further dimension to both characters Although Nate may refer to him as Dudley Do Right, Joe is no one s fool Underestimating him is a mistake and things can get Western very quickly On the other side, the head of the Wolf Pack is as nasty a character as nasty can get From the very start, Box creates a sense of threat The plot is as one is on a roller coaster ride There are fairly gentle rises and falls, then huge escalations, heart stopping drops, flat runs for relief, and then we re off again Box knows how to plot He s an expert at linking aspects of the story together in ways one doesn t expect Even seemingly innocent scenes have an overlay of danger to them The escalation of tension is palpable to the point where one may even mutter No, don t go as if watching a movie One is definitely never bored Wolf Pack is a high energy, edge of seat book There is divine retribution and an ending that is very emotional and somewhat bittersweet Fair warning that this book isviolent, withbodies, than some of the past books in the series, but it s an excellent read.WOLF PACK LicInv Game Warder Joe Pike Wyoming Contemp Ex Box, C.J 19th in series G.P Putnam s Sons March 2019 This is the 19th in the author s series featuring Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett, and having read them all, it s one of the best, I think Granted, it leans a bittoward the dark side with some really nasty characters, but the story was so intriguing and moved along so quickly that I kept pushing to get to the conclusion as fast as I could.After losing his job at the conclusion of the previous book, Joe is back in the saddle again, this time out in the wilds investigating leg hold trap This is the 19th in the author s series featuring Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett, and having read them all, it s one of the best, I think Granted, it leans a bittoward the dark side with some really nasty characters, but the story was so intriguing and moved along so quickly that I kept pushing to get to the conclusion as fast as I could.After losing his job at the conclusion of the previous book, Joe is back in the saddle again, this time out in the wilds investigating leg hold traps that have been set but not retrieved a no no in this territory where wild animals are supposed to roam free Usually, it s not easy to determine who the traps belong to, but in this case, the owner s initials are on the trap Before he can do much about it, though, he s called by another nearby ranger, Katelyn Hamm, who has spotted a drone swooping down and scaring the bejesus out of herds of deer.As it turns out, the drone belongs to the grandfather of the young man Joe s daughter Lucy is dating she s the last of the three daughters still in the cozy nest of Joe and his librarian wife, Marybeth Even Joe s old friend Nate Romanowski gets in on the action an experienced falconer and outdoorsman with a shady past, he watches until the next time the drone takes to the skies, encourages his birds to do likewise with a bang up result.But when Joe finally locates the old man in a remote hideaway that doesn t even show up on his GPS, the reception is far from cordial Confounding matters is that when he and Kate start to take steps that would charge the old guy with breaking the law, the law inexplicably fights back That sets Joe to wondering Why on earth is the FBI protecting the man Meanwhile, four extremely skilled killers three men and a woman start showing up in the area, and dead bodies start showing up as well It s thought that the killers, dubbed the Wolf Pack, are working for a cartel apparently trying to find the old man who s in the Witness Protection program to keep him safe until he can testify against other cartel bigwigs.Needless to say, Joe isn t one to back down but all too soon, he discovers that putting himself in between the killers and their intended prey might not be the smartest thing he s ever done and it could even cost him, and his family and friends, their lives Bodies keep piling up right to the exciting end which, of course, I won t reveal All I ll say is this one is a don t miss, especially for diehard followers like me Well done In my opinion C J Box s best book featuring Game Warden Joe Pickett His family and friend Nate feature as usual This time the FBI, some WITSEC persons, vengeance from the Sinaloa cartel andlocal personnel feature too.A beautifully crafted story and beautifully written Unputdownable.

mountains It infused the light with a soft bronze glow that painted the street as well as the sides of buildings.Wolf Pack is the nineteenth in the series featuring Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett, based in the small town of Saddlestring, loving husband of Marybeth and proud father of 3 daughters, the youngest, Lucy, about to leave the nest It is late April, a time of unsettled weather, and the Pickett s are joined by long time friends Nate Romanowski, former Special Forces soldier and now a commercial falconer, with his partner Liv, and district attorney Dulcie, to celebrate Lucy s birthday Joe is distracted by an irresponsible trapper leaving behind a trap that allowed an animal to die in needless pain, and the reports of a drone spooking herds of deer weakened by hunger following the harsh winter.There are two Wolf Packs involved, the animal kind reintroduced and raising concern among ranchers and the human kind, a killer squad of 4 Hispanics three men and a younger woman hired by a Sinaloa cartel to take out elements of the drug trade who turned evidence against them, standing out like Prairie Oysters in that environment.Author CJ Box captures the townships and dramatic landscapes, the descriptions of the sky and trees, both in Wyoming and at Scottsdale and the Tonto National Forest outside Payson, Arizona This one was darker than usual for a Joe Pickett but retains the inevitable environmental message, legal v illegal hunting, the warm and fuzzy family friends relationships, Nate Romanowski s almost hypnotic effect on birds and wild beasts Missing is Joe s mother in law, the many times married Missy Vankueren Hand, who tried to get Joe dismissed from his job.The storyline reveals an over reliance on technology in a rugged area which places limits on cell phones, GPS, and yes, a drone I found the Wolf Pack supposedly professionals linear in their thinking slitting throats and spraying bullets everywhere, leaving a trail of carnage and innocent victims in their wake Straight out of Pulp Fiction Throw in a pair of FBI special agent stooges who abide by their own rules, which brought to mind a parody on the Gestapo vee vill ask zee kvestions.This is the third Joe Pickett I have read, and as with the earlier ones it is the finer detail that lets it down when does a black Mercedes magically turn white At 40 degrees below zero, who turns off their engine and gets out of a vehicle to have a chat And where was Daisy the Labrador during the gunfight Verdict a reasonable read I think I ve read almost all of CJ Box s books, which is a talented author that I really enjoy.He has only one big weak point the credibility of his stories is sometimes at the limit of the acceptable, he has from time to time recourse to the facility of happy chance And,rarely, CJ Box gratifies us with an incongruous story, which defies logic.Wolf Pack is the perfect example of this bad side of CJ Box.From the beginning we know that it will not be a great Joe Pickett the story is scatt I think I ve read almost all of CJ Box s books, which is a talented author that I really enjoy.He has only one big weak point the credibility of his stories is

the perfect example of this bad side of CJ Box.From the beginning we know that it will not be a great Joe Pickett the story is scattered in several points of view, we guess everything that happens ten chapters before the protagonists But if not great, it s quite pleasant to read, as usual.Then, at two thirds of the story, the plot crashes with ridiculous hazards and incomprehensible decisions of the characters I do not know how a publisher can let something like that go by without doing anything.It s sad.The book ends as a bad action TV movie I feel very polite, other words, bad ones, could suit The only good news is that every bad Joe Pickett is usually caught by an excellent Joe Pickett in the months that follow.The next one is going to be great Another great tale by C.J Box Amazing his 19th book in the series and he has not let us down yet as so many authors do Sadly, the next book will be missing some of my favorites RIP Whew What a book This novel s murderous wolf pack is two legged kind Joe finds himself in the most violent and dangerous predicament he s ever faced I don t want to write anything that would give the plot of this book away so I ll leave it at that.I have to say that reading one of Box s new books and following Joe, Marybeth, and Nate Romanowski, is like catching up with old friends one hasn t seen in a while I highly recommend this book AND this series Well, that went fast Probably Box s best written Very tight and smooth.Not sure what I can say about the content without spoilers Maybe a couple of teases there are two eponymous wolf packs, and only one is of gray wolves Nate Romanowski s birds play a key role And Joe and and Marybeth s last daughter remaining at home, Lucy, is in the line of fire.If you re a fan, you ll like it a lot So will you if you re new and it ll probably start you on the whole series. ^Download Epub ☟ Wolf Pack ↡ Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett encounters bad behavior on his own turf only to have the FBI and the DOJ
