Joe Pickett, recently fired from his job as a Wyoming game warden, is working on his father-in-law's ranch when he receives a visit from the governor. Governor Rulon - a devious but down-home politico - has a special request, one Joe knows he can't refuse. For weeks, the headlines have been abuzz with the story of Clay McCann, a lawyer who slaughtered four campers in a far-off corner of Yellowstone. After the murders, McCann immediately turned himself in at the nearest ranger station. Seemed like a slam-dunk case for law enforcement - except that the crimes were committed in a thin sliver of land with zero residents and overlapping jurisdiction, the so-called free-fire zone. McCann has taken advantage of an obscure loophole in the law: neither the state nor the federal government can try him for his crime. The worst mass murderer in Wyoming history walks out of jail a free man. Governor Rulon, sensitive to the rising tide of public outrage, wants his own investigation into the murders and will reinstate Joe as a game warden if he'll go to Yellowstone "without portfolio" to investigate. Joe, happy to get his badge back, even under these circumstances, agrees. It quickly becomes clear to Joe that McCann is deeply involved with some illegal activity taking place in the park - something tremendously lucrative and unusually dangerous. As Joe and his partner Nate Romanowski search for the key to the murders, they discover that it may be hidden in the rugged terrain of the park itself.

But when Joe Pickett hears two sharp cracks ring out months before hunting season, it's his job to investigate the first murder he's ever encountered. Battling grudge-holding neighbours, corrupt officials and out-of-town activists, Joe begins to unravel a mystery that threatens the life and the family he loves.

The first Joe Pickett novel 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 dear. From the Paperback edition.

Ένας λαθρομετανάστης βρίσκεται δολοφονημένος σ' ένα δημοτικό οικιστικό συγκρότημα του Εδιμβούργου: ρατσιστικό έγκλημα ή κάτι τελείως διαφορετικό; Εκτός από το φόνο, τον επιθεωρητή Ρέμπους τον απασχολούν, βέβαια, και άλλα ζητήματα: το παλιό του αστυνομικό τμήμα έκλεισε και οι ανώτεροί του θα προτιμούσαν να βγει στη σύνταξη παρά να τον έχουν στα πόδια τους. Ο Ρέμπους όμως δεν θα τους κάνει το χατίρι. Στο πλαίσιο της έρευνάς του, θα επισκεφθεί ένα κρατητήριο προσφύγων, θα συναλλαχθεί με τον βρομερό υπόκοσμο του Εδιμβούργου, και σχεδόν θα ερωτευτεί... Στο μεταξύ, η συνεργάτιδά του η Σίβον έχει τα δικά της προβλήματα. Μια έφηβη το έσκασε απ' το σπίτι της κι η Σίβον καλείται να βοηθήσει την οικογένεια, που σημαίνει ότι θα βρεθεί πιο κοντά απ' ό,τι θα ήθελε στον ιστό ενός βιαστή. Πώς συνδέονται όλα αυτά με το θέμα δύο σκελετών -μιας γυναίκας κι ενός νηπίου- που βρέθηκαν θαμμένοι κάτω απ' το τσιμεντένιο πάτωμα ενός κελαριού στην Κρεαταγορά;
