C. J. Box's Nowhere to Run was 'wonderful' (Denver Post), 'terrific' (Chicago Tribune), 'outstanding' (Publishers Weekly). His new novel is all of that, and more.
A body hangs from a wind turbine, a bullet hole in his chest: Earl Alden, millionaire property developer. His wife, Missy, is the prime suspect. It wouldn't be a problem for Joe Pickett, if Missy weren't his mother-in-law. Missy claims she's innocent, and for his wife's sake, Joe would like to believe her...but all the early signs point to her being as guilty as sin. With his wife on one side and the law on the other, Joe needs to get to the truth before his family is ripped apart.
C. J. Box is the winner of the Anthony Award, the Prix Calibre .38 (France), the Macavity Award, the Gumshoe Award, the Barry Award, the Edgar Award and an L.A. Times Book Prize finalist. He has even been nominated for the IMPAC prize. His novels are US bestsellers and have been translated into 21 languages. Box lives with his family outside of Cheyenne, Wyoming.
