The Red Desert of Wyoming is a beautiful and punishing place for anybody, even for game warden Joe Pickett and his friend Nate Romanowski in this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller...
Nate 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.

    Good storytelling, accurate technical info, but slightly fantastical. Character narratives read like bad acting at times.

    Too far left- totally un- believable! Worst book I have read of his. He needs to stick to conventional mysteries of believable things in the Bighorns along the Tongue River valley. Walt Mueller

    I am a diehard C.J. Box fan & really love the character Nate-but this time I think the story was a bit hard to swallow. Looking forward to the next book with my fingers crossed that Box comes back to earth with his plot lines (and a little more to the center line). All in all not a bad read.
  • Another great thriller

    Chuck Box just keeps them coming. Just got done with this book and true to form he captures your imagination with his descriptive story telling. I can't wait for the next one. Thanks Chuck.

    Slow beginning and middle action picked up in the last few chapters. I couldn't put the book down...
  • A western tale

    By Barbiegc
    Thoroughly enjoyed reading "off the grid". A modern present day western tale of terrorism that is so believable that it will make your anxiety level rise!
  • I love Nate!

    This needs to be a movie! Best yet!
  • OK

    Enjoyed the story except for the author's anti-government agenda. We get the picture, Mr. Box...the government is evil and state and federal employees (with sole exception being Pickett) are lazy and incompetent. Move on to something new.
