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
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
C. J. Box is just the best! I'm looking forward to re-reading the entire Joe Pickett series, along with his stand alone novels, again!
Another installment in the series about a Wyoming game warden, this is good read for a snowbound weekend by the woodstove.
I was afraid this was going to turn out to be another of those serial killer stories that I seem to be getting lately and I’m so glad it didn’t. Ostensibly the case concerns the disappearance of a British woman vacationing at posh resort. But that becomes less important than other considerations. Along the way we learn a lot about wind farms and golden eagles, proving once again that when it comes to the environment, nothing is black and white. Green energy sounds great, but isn’t there a proble ...more

C.J. Box's latest Joe Pickett novel is a great addition to this outstanding series. Wyoming has a new, highly unpleasant governor who tasks Pickett with finding a missing British businesswomen. Meanwhile, Nate Romanowski drags Joe into another case on behalf of a group of falconers. The further Joe delves into both cases, the more he realizes that forces are at work to stop him from solving either case. Both mysteries were interesting and original, and the resolutions were satisfying. One of my ...more
First Sentence: Wylie Frye was used to smelling of smoke and that was long before he became a criminal of sorts.
Wyoming’s new governor wants Game Warder Joe Pickett to find a wealthy CEO and Englishwoman who disappeared after staying at the dude ranch where Joe’s daughter, Sheridan, works. Joe’s friend, master falconer Nate Romanowski, want Joe to find out why the falconers can no longer hunt with eagles in spite of having valid permits. Joe wants to know why the Game Warden seems to have disapp ...more
I'm a big fan of Joe Pickett and eagerly look forward to the next chapter in my favorite Wyoming game warden's life.
This one is good, but not as good as some of his previous works. I will say the description of the dead of winter in Wyoming is so well written that I almost put on an extra sweater while reading. Beautiful country and a good mystery keep this one of the best mystery series around.
Due to be published in March 2018.
