"An extremely talented writer who is on top of his game. Hunker down and hang on tight for an intense, twisting ride that lasts to the final page." —The Denver Post on Savage Run
It's an hour away from darkness, a bitter winter storm is raging, and Joe Pickett is deep in the forest edging Battle Mountain, shotgun in his left hand, his truck's steering wheel handcuffed to his right-and Lamar Gardiner's arrow-riddled corpse splayed against the tree in front him.
Lamar's murder and the sudden onslaught of the snowstorm warn: Get off the mountain. But Joe knows this episode is far from over. Somewhere in the dense timber, a killer draws back his bowstring-with Joe as his prey.
Joe's pursuit of the killer through the rugged mountains that surround the snow-packed town of Saddlestring takes a horrifying turn when April, his beloved foster daughter, is kidnapped. Now it's personal and Joe will stop at nothing to get her back.
Steeped in the sharp cliffs and the brutal wilderness of the Wyoming landscape, Winterkill is a masterful performance, darkly compelling and utterly unforgettable. With prose that "tears forward like a brushfire" (People), C.J. Box places all the elements of a classic mystery in a setting where the dangerous beauty of one of America's last frontiers plays accomplice to the darkest of human motives.
Winterkill is C. J. Box's third novel featuring Joe Pickett. Open Season, Box's stunning debut, was a New York Times Notable Book and won the prestigious Anthony Award, the Barry Award, and the Macavity Award, as well as nominations for the Edgar Award and the Los Angeles Times Book Award. His second novel, Savage Run, scored high praise from The New York Times Book Review, People, and USA Today. A Wyoming native, Box has worked as a ranch hand, a surveyor, a fishing guide, and a small-town newspaper reporter and editor. He is the president and CEO of Rocky Mountain International Corporation, and lives in Cheyenne, Wyoming with his wife and their three daughters.
