Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
When Earl Alden is found dead, his wife Missy is arrested. Unfortunately for Joe Pickett, Missy is his much-disliked mother-in- law. All signs point to her being guilty as sin. But then things happen to make Joe wonder if everything is as it seems. He has the county DA and sheriff on one side, his wife on the other, and some powerful interests breathing down his neck. Whichever way this goes, it's not going to be good.

Review by Library Journal (2011-03-01)

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.
