Fiction. Mystery. Suspense. Thriller. HTML:Don't miss the Spectrum Originals series JOE PICKETT!

The first novel in the thrilling series featuring Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett from #1 New York Times bestselling author C. J. Box.


Joe Pickett is the new game warden in Twelve Sleep, Wyoming, a town where nearly everyone hunts and the game warden??especially one like Joe who won't take bribes or look the other way??is far from popular. When he finds a local hunting outfitter dead, splayed out on the woodpile behind his state-owned home, he takes it personally. There had to be a reason that the outfitter, with whom he's had run-ins before, chose his backyard, his woodpile to die in. Even after the "outfitter murders," as they have been dubbed by the local press after the discovery of the two more bodies, are solved, Joe continues to investigate, uneasy with the easy explanation offered by the local police.

As Joe digs deeper into the murders, he soon discovers that the outfitter brought more than death to his backdoor: he brought Joe an endangered species, thought to be extinct, which is now living in his woodpile. But if word of the existence of this endangered species gets out, it will destroy any chance of InterWest, a multi-national natural gas company, building an oil pipeline that would bring the company billions of dollars across Wyoming, through the mountains and forests of Twelve Sleep. The closer Joe comes to the truth behind the outfitter murders, the endangered species and InterWest, the closer he comes to losing everything he holds

Joe Pickett is a game warden in Wyoming with a wife, two little girls, and a baby on the way. He has a history of being a bit bungling, but he’s honest and fair. This proves to be a bit of a problem, both for him and people in high government places with secrets to hide. Pickett finds a hunter dead on his woodpile, then finds two more dead hunters in the mountain camp whence the first dead man came, but his persistence in getting to the bottom of the case makes some local higher-ups uncomfortable and then downright angry. It’s when his family is threatened that Joe really gets angry and justice starts getting served.

Yeah, this one’s just not my jam, I think. It was okay, and the writing was okay, and the plot was fine, but it wasn’t overly interesting in any aspect. I won’t be continuing with the series. ( )

The series is intriguing but I keep thinking that Joe is a TSTL character. I don't read romances with TSTL characters, so why am I giving a pass to this author? ( )

1st in Joe Pickett series. Joe?s 1st year as game warden brings him rubbing the ranchers the wrong way when sets out to solve the mystery of the death of Ote who dies on his property and leaves a container of scat. The scat turns out to be from Miller?s weasels that were thought to be extinct and have habitat where a pipe line is hoped to placed. Fast paced and intense as his wife and daughter face life threatening ordeals. Joe?s wife is accidentally shot by former game warden and daughter Sheridan sees her mom shot and has to hide in the woods behind their house from Wacey, for former game warden. Her mom ends up losing the baby and Sheridan is able to be reunited with her dad when confronts Wacey.

(2001) After watching the first season of ?Joe Pickett? on Paramount I thought I would re-read this novel. Turns out I had never read it. I found myself comparing the story to the TV series and remarkably the producers/writers had not strayed too far from the book. The discovery of a long-thought extinct Miller's Weasel becomes Joe's first big case as a pipeline construction is threatened and a couple corrupt game wardens try to exterminate the animals in order to profit from the pipeline coming thru Saddlestring WY. Joe, Marybeth and Sheridan all become involved in solving the mystery of dead outfitters. Also, Marybeth loses her unborn baby to a gunshot from Wacey, one of the corrupt officials. Pretty good first book. Glad I discovered it. KIRKUS: Rookie Twelve Sleep County Game Warden Joe Pickett's not much of a shot, and he's been looking like a goat ever since poacher Ote Keeley got the drop on him with his own gun during a routine arrest. But at least he's doing better than Ote, who's turned up dead on the woodpile outside Joe's house. Joe's search in Crazy Woman Creek canyon for the two outfitters and guides Ote was most recently partnered with ends happily, though violently, and suddenly Joe is the man of the hour. Longtime County Sheriff Bud Barnum nervously asks Joe's assurance that he's not going to support neighboring game warden Wacey Hedeman's challenge in the upcoming election; trophy wife Aimee Kensinger, who really likes men in uniforms, invites Joe's family to housesit her palatial digs for three weeks; and wily Vern Dunnegan, Joe's predecessor, wants Joe to join him in pulling down big bucks from InterWest resources, the fat-cat corporation for whose gas pipeline Vern's lining up local support. All this good news is only a front, of course, for a monstrous assault on Joe's livelihood, his integrity, and his familyand incidentally on an inoffensive species long assumed extinct. In response, Joe promises one of the bad guys that ?things are going to get real western,? and that's exactly what happens in the satisfyingly action-filled climax.A high-country Presumed Innocent that moves like greased lightning. First of a welcome new series, though it's hard to imagine tourism-marketing exec Box topping his debut.Pub Date: July 9, 2001ISBN: 0-399-14748-9Page Count: 304Publisher: Putnam

Interesting story, well developed characters. I didn’t like the swearing, especially the ‘F’ word. ( )
