Book #16 in the Joe Pickett series (2016)
The Red Desert of Wyoming is a beautiful and punishing place for anybody, but never more dangerous than it is now for game warden Joe Pickett, and his friend Nate, in the #1 New York Times bestselling thriller.
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 might be something that takes them all down including Nate and Joe.
