Dark Sky by C. J. Box Series: A Joe Pickett Novel (#21)


Joe has been basically blackmailed by the governor to take a celebrity on an elk hunt.  If he doesn't do it, he could lose his job...

G P Putnam and Sons and Edelweiss let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published on March 2nd.

Joe and a guide take the internet sensation into the woods to hunt for elk.  Joe has no idea someone is hunting the tech baron.

They do what is necessary for an elk hunt but then things go sideways.  A man wants to kill the internet sensation.  He thinks he's responsible for his daughter's suicide.

This turns into a deadly game of hide and seek.  Joe is a bit worried about bears but when they are attacked by an animal, it's wolverines!

Various people die as the hunt continues.  It turns into a fight for their lives because they want no witnesses.

Luckily Joe's eldest daughter and a falconer are looking for Joe and they add a hand in the gun battle.

This is a gritty nature story that shows the best and the worst of humans.  It reminded me of our camping days.  At least no one was trying to kill us.

Will Joe and tech baron survive?  Read it and see.
