This is the sixth book in the Joe Pickett series and it was definitely up to par with the preceding 5 books. This is one of my favorite series taking place in Wyoming with Joe Pickett, a State Fish and Game warden as the protagonist. In this one, a very bad member of the Keeley family is out to get his revenge on Joe for what he perceived as Joe's implication in the death of his brother and daughter. These events took place in the previous novels Open Range and Winterkill, both excellent reads. In addition, the novel tells the story of the Scarlett family, a long-time founding family of the county, and how the two older brothers are fighting for control of the family ranch and fortune after the mother vanishes. Towards the end of the novel, Joe is reunited with Nate Romanowski, who had disappeared in the prior book, Out of Range, after being accused of some homicides. Nate is one of my favorite characters in this series so hope he will play a bigger role in future stories. Overall, this was another action-packed page-turner from Box and I would highly recommend it.
