Edgar Award-winning author C.J. Box was on the New York Times Bestseller List for two weeks the summer of 2009 with this thrilling new novel featuring Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett.
Tell Sherry April called.' That simple phone message shakes Joe Pickett’s oldest daughter Sheridan and the rest of the family to the core. To Joe, it doesn’t seem even remotely possible that April could have survived the massacre six years before.
Meanwhile, a dying Chicago mobster named Stenko and a much younger girl cross the country. He’s on a mission to reconcile with his extreme environmentalist son before he goes. He wants his father to become not just carbon neutral, but to reduce his carbon footprint to below zero — as if he’d never even existed.
As the path of Stenko and his companions starts to cross with Joe, Sheridan, and Nate, the question is raised: Is this young girl April or is the Pickett family the victims of the cruelest of hoaxes?
