Ranch owner Opal Scarlett has vanished under suspicious circumstances, and her sons Hank and Arlen are battling it out for control of her multi-million-dollar empire. Everyone in town is so caught up in the brothers' battle that, with the exception of game warden Joe Pickett, they seem to have forgotten that Opal is still missing. Joe begins his investigation and is beaten nearly to death by Hank Scarlett's right-hand man a stranger who looks eerily familiar. And what's the meaning of the threatening messages that follow? Slowly, it begins to dawn on Joe that the Scarlett family feud is the least of his problems. Someone with a very personal grudge has a vicious debt to collect and wants Joe to pay with his job, his home, maybe even with his family and his blood. Publishers Weekly,Wyoming Game and Fish warden Joe Pickett-honest, upright and hardworking-tends to attract the meanest villains this side of a spaghetti western, as shown in his sprightly sixth outing in which he and his family become the target of John Wayne Keeley, a misguided, conscienceless killer. In addition, Opal Scarlett, the matriarch of a wealthy ranching clan, is missing, and two of her sons, Hank and Arlen, are fighting over the estate. Joe's daughter, Sheridan, is best friends with Hank's daughter, Julie, which puts Sheridan in danger. As usual, hotheaded Joe is also in trouble with his boss, self-serving Randy Pope. When Joe is pulled off of the search for Opal, he stubbornly follows his instincts rather than orders, bringing down Pope's wrath. Edgar-finalist Box (Out of Range) expertly evokes Wyoming's landscape, wildlife, people and politics. Joe's love for the natural world shines throughout, but his lack of political finesse costs him his job by book's end. Fans will eagerly wait to see how he recoups his fortunes in the next installment. 15-city author tour. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
