New York Times -bestselling writer C. J. Box returns with a thrilling novel featuring Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett. Joe Pickett had good reason to dislike Dallas Cates, and now he has even more-Joe's eighteen-year-old daughter, April, has run off with him. And then comes even worse news: She has been found in a ditch along the highway-alive, but just barely, the victim of blunt force trauma. Cates denies having anything to do with it, but Joe knows in his gut who's responsible. What he doesn't know is the kind of danger he's about to encounter. Cates is bad enough, but Cates's family is like none Joe has ever met.
Praise for C.J. Box's Endangered "All the action and suspense of Box's long string of high-country adventures. Endangered is one of Joe's best." - Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "Is there a crime-fiction family as fully fleshed out as Joe Pickett's? In singing the praises of Box's series, we often praise the plotting, pacing, and the down-to-earth hero's friendship with force-of-nature Nate Romanowski. But Pickett's supporting cast lends a continuity and grounding to this series that sets it apart from all the lone-wolf stuff out there. A carefully constructed plot building to a breathless, thrilling end." - Booklist "Series fans will love this thriller. The nonstop action, intermingling plotlines, and the return of familiar characters all mesh into a breathless, roller-coaster ride of sheer suspense and entertainment." - Library Journal "An edge-of-the-seat thriller. A tightly coiled plot that springs from surprise to surprise." - South Florida Sun-Sentinel "Once again, Box delivers a winner. Grade: A." -Cleveland Plain Dealer "A great read that is fast-paced, suspenseful, and action-packed. The best yet of the series." - Blackfive
