Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

It's elk season in the Rockies, but a different kind of hunter is stalking prey in this novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling Joe Pickett series.

Game wardens have found a man dead at a mountain camp--strung up, gutted, and flayed as if he were the elk he'd been hunting. Is the murder the work of a deranged anti-hunting activist or of a lone psychopath with a personal vendetta? Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett is the man to track the murderer and stop him, before someone declares open season on humans.

   Follow Joe on the trail of blood
Joe Pickett is so human that I drop one finished book and grab the next one, he said. He is so believable, with his inability to convince the people around him of his findings, almost immune to the injuries he receives because he is so focused on his goal, that politicians can't get around him. I keep cheering him on, Raymond said. I hesitate to give Joe and his wife a closer relationship, Bruno said. At times she seems to dislike her husband, then something happens to him and she is all compassion and tenderness _ but maybe resents his almost attention deficit like behavior toward his love of nature which he seems to serve.
   A Great Read
C.J. Kennedy, who heads NASA's Ames Research Center in California, said no American scientist had ever succeeded. An excellent writer, Robert Box. He has many twists and turns that make the books very exciting to read, Simon said. This is my 12th book, and I have loved every one of them. Joe Pickett, a Game Warden with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, is the author of this book.
   Action packed!!!
My husband and I both love all of his books. They are fast-paced, suspenseful reads. Addictive drugs are also prevalent in the "Candy" series. You never know what's coming around the corner.
   Another good one from CJ Box.
I've read most of his books, and none disappoints. He creates memorable characters and story lines that stand out in the marketplace. Joe Pickett is not a super hero, but he more than gets the job done. His wife and children, all grown by Joe, divided loyalties to them and his job.
   Terrific! A Great Fast-Paced Mystery
After a suggestion from a close friend and an endorsement by one of my favorite authors, I thought I'd give C.J. Harrison a shot. Joe Pickett of England responded with a left hook. Wow! That was pretty impressive, right? I did not grow up in a hunting culture and have never had any desire to do so until I began reading the Pickett books. Now I'm too old and my eyes are too poor for me to even consider such a thing, but Box's writing makes me want to do it. Can't wait to start work on the next one.
   A Review of Blood Trail (Joe Pickett Book 8)
It's a blood trail, after all. One sick individual is killing hunters at a rate of three or four per week, and the results are disturbing. Joe Pickett is assigned to work the case, and it immediately becomes complicated because his old boss Randy Pope, is in the middle of running the field investigation. Bad puns aside, Joe's life goes from bad to worse. An edge of the seat story, with unexpected results.
   I Give Up on Joe Pickett and CJ Box
C.J. Kennedy, who died Sunday at age 82, was a lawyer who specialized in civil rights cases. It's a loser-type character whose career is going nowhere, Taylor said. The book is also littered with inaccuracies and misrepresentations, much of which is presented from the standpoint of Pickett's family. His wife is always in danger, always whining, and finally uninteresting. He solves crimes that his superiors never give him credit for solving. C.J. Chester, who died Sunday at age 82, was a physician. NBC also aired a two-hour special on Saturday night titled "The Box." These authors know better that characters that try to do the right thing but continually fail are tolerable only in short doses.
   Not quite as good
For me, this book was not quite as good as the first. Although the storyline was diverse, the outdoors, nature, and game warden-ish aspects did not take a back seat as compared to previous books in the series. The book is, however, limited to anti-hunting and nothing else. Some of it is just too realistic, even for me. 0 3171616 This is just too good a story." It was a good ending to a great story. As other reviewers have noted, there are some minor story inconsistencies and editorial issues such as full-word CAPITAL LETTERS where they don't belong at beginning of several paragraphs.
   Not the best Joe Pickett book.
Really has less to do with the love of being a game warden and wildlife and more to do with sick and dysfunctional humans, he said. If I don't keep this up, I will stop the series.
   Who is Killing Wyoming Hunters and Why?
In "The Huntress," an individual is shown killing hunters and then handling them like the animal a hunter killed. Joe Pickett, the Wyoming governor's appointee, is assigned by the Legislature to figure out the issue. He needs to find out who is killing the Wyoming hunters and why before more hunters are killed, he said. The governor has also shut down hunting all in Wyoming until this is resolved, and the hunters are getting mad and want to take matters into their own hands. This makes for an interesting story with the same excellent character development Joe, Marybeth, Sheridan, etc.
