The protagonist is a game warden. The setting is Wyoming. The problem is mutilations...first moose, then cows, then people. If Michael Connelly wore a cowboy hat and was influenced by the X-Files. Great fun in the creepy wild west. — Stan Hynds
In this thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling Joe Pickett series, the Wyoming game warden is up against a vicious killer who's more beast than man...
Local authorities in Twelve Sleep County, Wyoming, are quick to label a rash of animal mutilations as the work of a grizzly bear, but game warden Joe Pickett suspects that something far more sinister is afoot. And when the bodies of two men are found disfigured in the same way, his worst feats are confirmed: A modern-day Jack the Ripper is on the loose—and the killings have just begun.
