Wind turbines might be touted as a clean alternative to Wyoming's abundant fossil fuels, but the siren call of easy money leads to murder on the sprawling Alden wind farm one August morning. Missy, Joe Pickett's gold-digging, serial monogamist mother-in-law, is arrested for the bizarre murder of her latest catch, Earl Alden. Is she capable of cold-blooded murder? Simultaneously, an old enemy ambushes Joe's outlaw colleague, Nate Romanowski, and his lover.
-Nate's grief-driven hunt for revenge adds meaty action to this mult i stranded tale. Estranged for nearly a year (after the events of Nowhere To Run), Joe and Nate here reconcile, and readers will be riveted by the dilemmas Nate faces in a cliff-hanger plot device.
Verdict: Joe's game warden responsibilities take a backseat in this 11th entry in an outstanding series. As Nate's fugitive life becomes more precarious, Joe will again be forced to make decisions that place him outside of his comfort zone as a government man.
