Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett has two cases to contend with, both of them lethal, in the electrifying new novel from the #1 New York Times-bestselling author.Wyoming's new governor isn't sure what to make of Joe Pickett, but he has a job for him that is extremely delicate. Three British executives, all women, never came home from the high-end guest ranch they were visiting, and the British Embassy is pressing hard. Pickett knows that happens sometimes--these ranches are stocked with handsome young cowboys, and "ranch romances" aren't uncommon. But three disappearances? That's too many.At the same time, with the help of his friend Nate Romanowski, he's been called to investigate the killings of several bald and golden eagles--a serious federal crime. The more he investigates both cases, the more someone wants him to go away. Is it because of the missing woman or the dead eagles? Or are they somehow connected? The answers, when they come, will be even worse than he'd imagined....

The Disappeared (Joe Pickett #18) Reviews
For me, a series doesn't get any better than this one!
Wyoming Game Warden Joe Pickett meets the newly elected governor at the airport to receive his next assignment. The governor sends him to Encampment, Wyoming where a prominent British CEO, Kate Shelford-Longden disappeared without a trace a few months ago. She left the dude ranch at the end of her vacation but didn't make it to the airport to fly home. Also, the local game warden in Encampment is missing. Looks like he just walked out the doo ...more
THE EFFECT OF SELF-ABSORPTION
The book, revolves, loosely, around three things: the disappearance of a tourist, a wind farm and the underground problems of even "green" energy, and Wyoming politics.
First, the politics and energy are inter-related in Wyoming.
This author obviously watches Wyoming politics, and he understands, sees, the reality. Wyoming is ranked read last for government transparency, and may, as a result, be kind of high in government corruption. It's hard to say. I find his gover ...more
Looking for another great read?
Then you should definitely be checking out the latest novel from author C. J. Box in his Joe Pickett series.
As "The Disappeared" opens, Pickett is waiting to meet the new governor, Colter Allen and his chief aide Connor Hanlon. Pickett is still operating as the "range rider" for the governor's office but after refusing to play politics with a previous "request" from Governor Allen, our favorite game warden finds himself on the outside looking in.
So when he's tempo ...more
#18 in the Joe Pickett series. Author Box has served up an above average entry in this 2018 addition to the WY game warden series. Joe is his usual dependable, hard working character and this time out has substantial help from daughter Sheridan and friend Nate Romanowski, and interesting new characters Bartender Kim Miler and lumber mill owner Jeb Pryor. I don't know that author Box had Donald Trump in mind when writing about new Governor Colter Allen, but I couldn't get Trump out of my mind whi ...more
Joe Pickett once again saves the day! Though, it does take a little help from his old friend, Nate, and his darling daughter, Sheridan, this time. Only C.J. Box can twist a simple missing persons tale into greater, ecological, political issues of the day, as smoothly and swiftly as the wind across the wide open Wyoming spaces. Fill in the spaces with selfish Brits, idiot politicians, dope headed bunglers, and a good beer now and then...you'll find yourself in the midst of another satisfying read ...more

I love Joe Pickett. I love Nate. Mary Beth, Lucy and Sheridan are wonderful. This was, as usual, an interesting multi-leveled story. However, I did not like the ending.
One of Box' best. Joe is sent by the new governor - an obnoxious man with an even more obnoxious assistant - to Saratoga to find a wealthy British woman who had been gone for months after leaving a high end dude ranch resort. Odd things, like the fact that the previous Fish and Wildlife employee and a law enforcement person working the case in the area were now gone, plus a redacted file, make Joe wonder what is going on. Joe's daughter, Sheridan, works there and Nate shows up. Good writing, lov ...more
