Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Wyoming Game Warden Joe Pickett and his wife Marybeth make separate discoveries that put the Pickett family in a pair of killers' crosshairs in this thrilling new novel in the bestselling series. A day before the three Pickett girls come home for Thanksgiving, Joe is called out for a moose poaching incident that turns out to be something much more sinister: a local fishing guide has been brutally tortured and murdered.  At the same time, Marybeth opens an unmarked package at the library where she works and finds a photo album that belonged to an infamous Nazi official. Who left it there? And why?   She learns that during World War II, several Wyoming soldiers were in the group that fought to Hitler's Eagles Nest retreat in the Alps-and one of them took the Fuhrer's personal photo album. Did another take this one and keep it all these years?  When a close neighbor is murdered, Joe and Marybeth face new questions: Who is after the book? And how will they solve its mystery before someone hurts them...or their girls?    Meanwhile, Nate Romanowski is on the hunt for the man who stole his falcons and attacked his wife. Using a network of fellow falconers, Nate tracks the man from one city to another. Even as he grasps the true threat his quarry presents, Nate swoops in for the kill-and a stunning final showdown.

    Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett finds a local fishing guide tortured and burned, while Joe's wife, Marybeth, discovers an unmarked package at her library containing a photo album once owned by a Nazi official. A connection between the two events is made, but only after the entire Pickett clan, home for Thanksgiving, is placed in danger, and one of their neighbors is murdered. Who would want that album so badly? What is still stirring in the ashes of WWII? Meanwhile, Joe's friend, Nate Romanowski, has gone off in a black rage to apprehend Axel Soledad, who stole Nate's falcons at the conclusion of Dark Sky (2021). With the help of Geronimo Jones, a fellow falconer, Nate looks for Soledad in a Denver besieged by militant antifa adherents. Together, the pair follows a bloody trail to Portland and one last shoot-out. Box expertly maneuvers readers through two entirely different stories in this twenty-second entry in the immensely popular series. Fans can look forward to an upcoming Joe Pickett television series from Paramount Studios/Spectrum Originals. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
