Free Fire is C.J Box's best environmental thriller yet. Joe Pickett, recently fired from his job as a Wyoming game warden, is sent by the governor to investigate the murders of four Yellowstone Park employees. He uncovers a high-stakes competition for the rights to mine biological material from the park's hot springs, uncovering an intricate tale of official corruption and greed. Box excels at explaining absorbing scientific material and vividly evokes the natural splendor of Yellowstone and Pickett's determination to preserve the wilderness. — Louise Jones

Description


Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett hunts a mass murderer in Yellowstone in this thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author C.J. Box. 

Joe Pickett’s been hired to investigate one of the most cold-blooded mass killings in Wyoming history. Attorney Clay McCann admitted to slaughtering four campers in a back-country corner of Yellowstone National Park—a “free-fire” zone with no residents or jurisdiction. In this remote fifty-square-mile stretch a man can literally get away with murder. Now McCann’s a free man, and Pickett’s about to discover his motive—one buried in Yellowstone’s rugged terrain, and as dangerous as the man who wants to keep it hidden.
