C.J. Box, author of Nowhere to Run

Joe Pickett's in his last week as the temporary game warden in the isolated town of Baggs, Wyoming, but there have been strange things going on in the surrounding mountains, and his conscience won't let him leave without checking them out: reports of camps looted, tents slashed, elk butchered. What awaits him is like nothing he's ever dealt with, like something out of an old story, except this is all too real and all too deadly.

C.J. Box is the author of ten Joe Pickett novels and two stand-alones, and has won the Edgar, Anthony, Macavity, Gumshoe, and Barry awards, as well as the French Prix Calibre .38 and the French Elle magazine literary award. His books have been translated into 22 languages. He lives in Wyoming.

Hear C.J. Box talk about and read from NOWHERE TO RUN during The Write Question this evening at 6:30 ( or 7:30 (

  1. In 'Cold Wind', Box keeps more balls in the air than a herd of seals in a golf ball factory. And they all end up in a neat pile at the end, Reminiscent of James Crumley and Spike Van Cleve, Box puts most other of the regional authors in the shade. Not all but most.
