Wolf Pack Reviews
The 19th book in the Joe Pickett series and it was so good to be back together with some old friends. Wolf Pack is an excellent, excellent addition to the great series. This is filled with excitement, some sadness, and some very unexpected happiness. If you are a fan of Joe and his friends this definitely is a book you do not want to miss.
On a Western kick, this time it’s one of my favorite “go-to” authors, C. J. Box, with another Wyoming thriller. “Wolf Pack” is a tightly crafted story where Box makes you “smell that sawmill burner and feel the cold of a Wyoming blizzard.” After a brief suspension, Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett is back on the job, investigating four vicious killers working on behalf of a Mexican drug cartel. Up against the FBI and DOJ, this may be the most violent and dangerous predicament Pickett has ever fac ...more
Joe has his job back and the Ten Sleep territory that has always been his, plus his badge number. Ex-Gov. Rulon, now a practicing attorney has taken Joe's case which was prompted by the vilification that Gov. Allen heaped upon Joe, vilifying Gov. Allen in order to reinstate Joe. Not only did Joe survive all this, he and Marybeth got a new state home with more bedrooms and bathrooms, just in time for their youngest daughter to be heading off to college in the near future. They will soon be empty- ...more
Being that this is the 19th entry in this series I keep thinking that the next one is not going to be as good as previous ones. Well boy was I wrong again! This series just keeps getting better and to have Joe Pickett back on his home turf and in his old job is perfect for what he finds himself up against this time. There is an evil set of killers roaming the mountains and Joe finds himself right in the middle of a situation he doesn’t understand at first.
Another incredible read and let me leav ...more
"...the wolf, which hunts in a pack, has a greater chance of survival than the lion, which hunts alone. - Christian Lous Lange
I love this series and I love this author. I've read almost everything written by him, including all of this lengthy series, and he never disappoints (and I'm working on catching up on the couple of books I've missed after I finish this review). Wyoming happens to be one of my favorite states too so that adds a lot of appeal.

“Wolf Pack” is C. J. Box at his absolute best. I thought the long-running series was in decline after “Vicious Circle” and “The Disappeared.” But this latest book represents a full turnaround. Most readers will finish this compelling novel in one or two sittings.
Its plot is intricate, relentless, and up-date; the good guys are nuanced; and the villains come in various forms—some plain evil, others merely contemptible. No surprise then that there’s lots of violence in the story. But killing—whet ...more
In Wolf Pack (G.P. Putnam 2019), C.J. Box's nineteenth in the wildly-popular Joe Pickett series, Wyoming Game Warden Joe Pickett is back to work patrolling the beautiful loneliness of the Wyoming wilds thanks to the legal efforts of the former Wyoming governor and the ineptitude of the new one.
