This one I give a five star to. I love this series and this has been one of my favorites in a long time. I love Joe and Nate when they are both in the story equally. Keep more coming like this story. I received an ebook copy of this book from Firsttoread for a fair and honest opinion.
“New York Times” bestselling author C. J. Box returns with a suspenseful new Joe Pickett novel. Nate Romanowski is off the grid, recuperating from wounds and trying to deal with past crimes, when he is suddenly surrounded by a small team of elite professional special operators. They re not there to threaten him, but to make a deal. They need help destroying a domestic terror cell in Wyoming s Red Desert, and in return they ll make Nate s criminal record disappear. But they are not what they seem, as Nate s friend Joe Pickett discovers. They have a much different plan in mind, and it just may be something that takes them all down including Nate and Joe.”
