Overview

Nowhere to Run (Joe Pickett Series #10) by C. J. Box

A mountain patrol leads Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett into a dangerous situation in this gripping novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author C. J. Box. 

It's Joe Pickett's last week as a temporary game warden in the mountain town of Baggs, Wyoming, but his conscience won't let him leave without checking out the strange reports coming from the wilderness: camps looted, tents slashed, elk butchered. What awaits him is like something out of an old campfire tale, except this story is all too real—and all too deadly.

You may flog me now. This is actually the first time I have read C.J. Box and his hero Joe Pickett. I have no excuses why it took me so long to read my first one, only regrets that I have not been involved as a reader sooner. Maybe I am not the only the one out there that hasn't read the fine works of C.J. Box. If that is the case then let it be known to the uninitiated that he has won numerous awards: The Edgar, Anthony, Macavity, Gumshoe, and Barry awards as well as the French Prix Calibre .38 and the French Elle magazine literary award. His novels have been translated into twenty- two different languages. Not too shabby. Nowhere To Run finds Joe Pickett in his last week as the temporary game warden in an isolated town where some funny business has been going on. Instead of just riding out the time and calling it a day, he can't let it go and has to investigate the mysterious goings on. Would we expect no less from the man of more? I don't think so. Being a first timer, I enjoyed the characteristics that make this guy who and what he is. In fiction right now there are very few horse riding, modern time detectives and hero types. I enjoyed the total originality of the character, the manner in which C.J. Box not only constructs Pickett but the surrounding microcosm and the people that inhibit it. This is not an urban affair and for me that was more refreshing than the mountain high air the characters were breathing. C.J. Box for me stands apart in the genre, which foot you can say he has it in would be a matter for another discussion. Is he a western, mystery, thriller or action/suspense author? Nowhere To Run is all that and one heck of a fun ride. I plan to backtrack and get my hands on the rest of his work as I feel compelled to find out what I missed before this. What makes Joe Pickett who and what he is? Where did he start and how did he arrive at Nowhere To Run? For me, that is why Box has won all the awards. He has created in me the thirst, the desire to embrace Joe Pickett and inhabit his world and learn as much about him as possible and enjoy the ride with him. I have some catching up to do, how about you? If you have read C.J. Box and his amazing character Joe Pickett, what is your favorite novel?

Hapless but resolute hero gets in over his head with the bad guys. I love this frustrating goofball.
slatsdawson More than 1 year ago
All of C.J. Box's books have been top notch. This is his best book to date. It begins with an eerie intrique that flows through the story. The plot is intricate and at the same time elaborate. It all ties in so smoothly at the end of the story indicating a true master at his craft. In all the Joe Picket books the more Nate Romanowski the better the book.

CJ Box's best Picket book too date. If you love the West and it's glorious mountains and self sufficient characters, you will like and respect Picket and his family. Quite a gripping tale. A slightly different twist from normal law enforcement types. But the same tiresome buracracy and inept officials they all have to deal with. Good story and well developed characters.

Wyoming Game Warden Joe Picket investigates a hunting complaint in a remote section where a female runner vanished years ago. Entering the woods, Joe feels a creeping sensation up and down his spine that someone is stalking him. However, paranoia can prove genuine when someone ambushes Joe. He barely escapes from the woods. Joe reports that survivalists and a female attacked him. His account leads to a media frenzy as a runner's parents pray their daughter is alive as this is the first time they can hope and a horde of rent a soldiers arrive to free the woman from the survivalists. Nowhere to Run is an exhilarating Picket thriller that grips the audience once Joe knows he has a stalker tracking him and never slows down until the final climatic denouement. This thriller is fast-paced throughout with terrific twists that hook fans even deeper into the story line. Like Joe, fans will wonder when is government too intrusive yet when must the government intrude on the lives of competent individuals making rational but outside the box choices that places no one else in harm.

This was the first time I had read a C.J.Box book. There were so many back stories that I was lost. Not knowing the characters' previous relationships, etc., I had a problem caring about what happened to the main characters.
