Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett must accompany a Silicon Valley CEO on a hunting trip—but soon learns that he himself may be the hunted—in the thrilling new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author C. J. Box.
The governor of Wyoming gives Joe the thankless assignment of taking a tech baron on an elk-hunting trip. Unbeknownst to them, as they trek farther into the wilderness, a manhunter is hot on their heels. Finding himself without a weapon, a horse, or a way to communicate, Joe must rely on his wits and his knowledge of the outdoors to protect himself and his charge. Meanwhile, when Joe’s closest friend, Nate Romanowski, and his own daughter Sheridan learn of the threat to his life, they follow him into the woods to try and rescue him before it’s too late.
