With oil comes money, with money comes drugs, and with drugs comes the dirtiest criminals wanting to corner the market. In the same small town resides twelve-year-old Kyle Westergaard.

  4. C J Box [Joe Pickett] Shots Fired Stories From Joe Pickett Country (retail) Type : epub | Size : 1.38 MB | English | 9780399158582 | Descirption: From C. J. Box, the New York Times-bestselling author of the Joe Pickett novels, comes a thrilling book of suspense stories about the Wyoming he kno so well-and the dark deeds and impulses that can be found there. Over the course of eighteen books, C. J. Box has been consistently hailed for his brilliant storytelling and extraordinary skills at creating character, suspense, and a deep sense of place. All of those strengths are in the ten riveting stories-three of them never before published-that make up Shots Fired. In "One-Car Bridge," one of four Joe Pickett stories, Pickett goes up against a "just plain mean" landowner, with disastrous results, and in "Shots Fired," his investigation into the radio call referred to in the title nearly ends up being the last thing he ever does. In "Pirates of Yellotone," two Eastern European tough guys find out what it means to be strangers in a strange land, and in "Le Sauvage Noble," the stranger is a Lakota in Paris who enjoys playing the "noble savage" for the French women-until he meets Sophie. Then he discovers what "savage" really means. Shots Fired is proof once again why "Box is a force to be reckoned with" (The Providence Journal-Bulletin). ** Download Here http://nitroflare.com/view/A503C501B4922D3/C.J.Box.-.Joe.Pickett.-.Shots.Fired-.Stories.From.Joe.Pickett.Country.retail.epub

C J Box Inherit the Dead (Ken Bruen, John Connolly, Val McDermid, et al) (epub) Type : epub | Size : 488.87 KB | English | 9781451684759 | Descirption: TO FIND AN ANGEL, HE MADE A DEAL WITH THE DEVIL. Pericles "Perry" Christo is a PI with a past-a former cop, who lost his badge and his family when a corruption scandal left him broke and disgraced. When wealthy Upper East Side matron Julia Drusilla summons him one cold February night, he grabs what seems to be a straightforward (and lucrative) case. The socialite is looking for her beautiful, aimless daughter, Angelina, who is about to become a very wealthy young woman. But as Christo digs deeper, he discovers there's much more to the lovely "Angel" than meets the eye. Her father, her best friend, her boy­friends all have agendas of their own. Angel, he soon realizes, may be in grave danger . . . and if Christo gets too close, he just might get caught in the crossfire. This classic noir tale twists and turns down New York's mean streets and along Hamp­tons' beaches and back roads during a bitterly cold and gray winter where nothing is as it seems and everyone has something to hide. In an inventive storytelling approach, each writer brings his or her distinctive voice to a chapter of Inherit the Dead, building the ten­sion to a shocking, explosive finale. ** Download Here http://nitroflare.com/view/D88F89FD5544D9B/C.J.Box.-.Inherit.the.Dead.Ken.Bruen.John.Connolly.Val.McDermid.et.al.epub.epub

Box returns with a thrilling new novel, featuring Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett. She was gone. Joe Pickett had good reason to dislike Dallas Cates, even if he was a rodeo champion, and now he has even more-Joe's eighteen-year-old ward, April, has run off with him. And then comes even worse ne: The body of a girl has been found in a ditch along the highway-alive, but just barely, the victim of blunt force trauma. It is April, and the doctors aren't sure if she'll recover. Cates denies having anything to do with it-says she ran away from him, too-and there's evidence that points to another man. But Joe kno in his gut who's responsible. What he doesn't know is the kind of danger he's about to encounter. Cates is bad enough, but Cates's family is like none Joe has ever met before. Joe's going to find out the truth, even if it kills him. But this time, it just might. Review 'I love Joe Pickett' Michael Connelly. 'Solid-gold A-list must-read' Lee Child.

  14. C J Box [Joe Pickett 013] Breaking Point (epub) Type : epub | Size : 1.06 MB | English | 9781611736885 | Descirption: The thrilling new Joe Pickett novel from the New York Times-bestselling author. Critics called Force of Nature an"amazing" (Associated Press), "outstanding" (Minneapolis Star Tribune), "warp speed . . . showdown between good and evil" (The Denver Post). "This is the best Box I've ever read, and I've read them all" (Library Journal). Breaking Point, however, takes Joe Pickett into uncharted territory. The question is: What will he do when he gets there? It was always good to see Butch Roberson, Joe thought-a hardworking, upright local business owner whose daughter was friends with his own. Little did he know that when he talked to Butch that day in the forest, the man was about to disappear. He was heading into the mountains to scout elk, he said, but instead he was running. Two EPA employees had just been murdered, and all signs pointed to him as the killer. As the manhunt organized itself, Joe heard more of the story-about the tract of land Butch and his wife had bought to build their retirement home on, until the EPA declared it a wetland. About the penalties they charged him when he balked, new ones piling up every day, until the family was torn apart . . . and finally, it seems, the man just cracked. It was an awful story. But was it the whole story? The more Joe looks into it, the more he begins to wonder-and the more he finds himself in the middle of a war he never expected and never wanted. Powerful forces want Roberson not just caught but dead-and the same goes for anyone who stands in their way. Every man reaches his breaking point. Joe Pickett may just have reached his. Review Praise for BREAKING POINT "Box doles out the complications and misfortunes with masterly control . . . One of [Box's] most exciting [novels]."-Kirkus "Thrilling . . .

  15. C J Box [Joe Pickett 005] Out of Range v5 Type : epub | Size : 510.33 KB | 9780425209455 | Descirption: From Publishers Weekly In Box's taut, suspenseful fifth Joe Picket novel (after 2004's Trophy Hunt), the Wyoming game warden is temporarily transferred from his backwater base, Saddlestring, to Jackson, a sophisticated tourist mecca, to replace warden Will Jensen, who apparently shot himself to death. Joe has his doubts about Will's "suicide," but little time to investigate given other distractions: a vast and remote territory to patrol, questionable practices by a hunting outfitter, pressure to approve an exclusive housing development on a wildlife trail and protests by animal rights activists. At home, Joe's contentious wife, Marybeth, deals with mysterious threats and daughter Sheridan's teenage angst. To complicate matters further, Joe's reputation as a hardheaded law enforcer, unwilling to play politics, precedes him. Unusual for the genre, the skillfully orchestrated climax doesn't include a chase and the conclusion is ambivalent. Adept at setting his scenes, physically and psychologically, Box approaches Nevada Barr in his ability to describe the West's natural beauty. With each book he creates plots of greater complexity, but in contrast to his ever more nuanced male characters, his women remain too often flirtatious or angry. Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. From Booklist Starred Review When a fellow game warden kills himself, Joe Pickett is transferred to Jackson Hole--"Wyoming's very own California"--where the new and old Wests collide head-on. Pickett investigates the suicide, meanwhile angering both a hotheaded developer and an irascible outfitter--and attracting the developer's beautiful wife. (Back home in Saddlestring, Joe's wife, Marybeth, calls family friend Nate Romanoki for help with threatening phone calls and finds herself tempted, too.) Contemporary issues are always integral to Box's books, and here he examines the modern quest for authenticity through something called the "Good Meat Movement." In the fifth installment of any series, even one this good, one might reasonably expect a creeping sense of routine. But, if anything, Box is getting better. Incorporating his own natural curiosity into his characters' opinions, he strides a Teton-sharp line between the hard-boiled ethos, where concepts of right and wrong are almost meaningless given the world's ways, and a western sensibility, where a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do--Joe eventually delivers the line: "I just killed the only man in Jackson Hole I really understood." But although Pickett is a laconic western archetype, there's no mythmaking here. He's a family man, likably flawed, and evolving every year. Recommended for practically everybody.
