Joe Pickett’s in his last week as the temporary game warden in the town of Baggs, Wyoming, but there have been strange things going on in the mountains, and his conscience won’t let him leave without checking them out: reports of camps looted, tents slashed, elk butchered. And then there’s the runner who simply vanished one day. Joe doesn’t mind admitting that the farther he rides, the more he wishes he could just turn around and go home.

And he is right to be concerned. Because what awaits him is like nothing he’s ever dealt with, like something out of an old story, except this is all too real and too deadly.

When he’d first saddled up, he’d thought of this as his last patrol. What he hadn’t known was just how accurate that thought might turn out to be.


Once in a while I'll pick up a book that leaves me slack-jawed in wonder by the time I put it down. NOWHERE TO RUN by C. J. Box has been one of those books for me.

Writing genius... on a par with James Lee Burke.
Library Journal

People Magazine

Readers should take note of their surroundings before opening this book: once they start reading, they won't know what hit them.

It takes a certain kind of crime writer to make a story as psychologically complex as it is nail-biting, and with the 10th book featuring small town warden Joe Pickett, C.J. Box has mastered the form.
