    C.J. Box's latest Joe Pickett novel is a great addition to this outstanding series. Wyoming has a new, highly unpleasant governor who tasks Pickett with finding a missing British businesswomen. Meanwhile, Nate Romanowski drags Joe into another case on behalf of a group of falconers. The further Joe delves into both cases, the more he realizes that forces are at work to stop him from solving either case. Both mysteries were interesting and origina...

    First Sentence: Wylie Frye was used to smelling of smoke and that was long before he became a criminal of sorts.Wyoming’s new governor wants Game Warder Joe Pickett to find a wealthy CEO and Englishwoman who disappeared after staying at the dude ranch where Joe’s daughter, Sheridan, works. Joe’s friend, master falconer Nate Romanowski, want Joe to find out why the falconers can no longer hunt with eagles in spite of having valid permits. Jo...

    4.5 bitter cold stars!The Disappeared by C.J. Box is a perplexing mystery about a missing person's case in Wyoming. Although this latest release is the eighteenth novel in the Joe Pickett series, it can easily be read as standalone.Joe Pickett is uneasy when new Governor Colter Allen wants him to look into the still unsolved disappearance of Kate Shelford-Longden. The  high profile British ad agency CEO vanished on her way to the Denver airport ...

    These books are a huge pleasure of mine - I won't say guilty pleasure, because I refuse to be guilty about anything I read. Nonetheless, they are like a bit of cotton candy, tasty but without much substance. This is the 18th in the series of books centered around Joe Pickett, erstwhile Wyoming Game Warden and man who has destroyed more state cars than anyone in fiction or reality.Box has a formula for the Pickett stories - Joe is in the doghouse ...

    Having read most books by CJ Box, I can't really get my head around the Grand Canyon size literary gap between his absolutely riveting 4 book "Highway Quartet" and the evolution of the Joe Picket series. I like Joe, Nate and Joe's family but the slow pace and Southern Wyoming winter atmospherics thinned the action of the plot. Very disappointing.

    Another installment in the series about a Wyoming game warden, this is good read for a snowbound weekend by the woodstove.

    CJ Box is probably my #1 favorite author. I have loved every single one of his books and as soon as they come out, I read them immediately. And too fast."The Disappeared" is no different. The continued story of WY Game Warden Joe Pickett and his family and, of course, Nate Romanowski, is still as interesting, funny, and heartwarming as the very first one in the series. I hope Mr. Box is around for a very long time and continues this beloved Picke...

    Joe Pickett had in the past worked on special projects for the governor. But there is a new governor of Wyoming, one that doesn’t much like Pickett the relationship Pickett had with his predecessor. So Joe was surprised to receive a summons to meet Governor Allen aboard his plane. While the governor wanted Joe’s help, it was not a friendly request as from his predecessor, but rather an order for Joe to temporarily take the place of a game war...

    Not the normal Joe Pickett novel, but very entertaining. I am definitely impressed, once again, with Mr. C. J. Box's consistency in his prolific writing exploits. This book meets all expectations and more.As always, five stars for a Joe Pickett don't seem pricey enough. Great storylines and the selected characters always appear to be appropriately selected and placed.I guess I will have to wait another year to ascertain Joe's actual disposition. ...

    Joe Pickett once again saves the day! Though, it does take a little help from his old friend, Nate, and his darling daughter, Sheridan, this time. Only C.J. Box can twist a simple missing persons tale into greater, ecological, political issues of the day, as smoothly and swiftly as the wind across the wide open Wyoming spaces. Fill in the spaces with selfish Brits, idiot politicians, dope headed bunglers, and a good beer now and then...you'll fin...

    One of Box' best. Joe is sent by the new governor - an obnoxious man with an even more obnoxious assistant - to Saratoga to find a wealthy British woman who had been gone for months after leaving a high end dude ranch resort. Odd things, like the fact that the previous Fish and Wildlife employee and a law enforcement person working the case in the area were now gone, plus a redacted file, make Joe wonder what is going on. Joe's daughter, Sheridan...

    C.J. Box has done it again. Grabbed you by the hair, and dragged you through another Joe Pickett mystery. A missing Brit, a missing game warden, a missing file, dumbshite farriers, a windfarm, a fish hatchery, the new, rude governor and his annoying minion, AND Missy - yes, Missy- all work together to give Joe very little downtime while his job hangs in the balance. Boosted by his buddy, Nate, and his darlin' daughter, Sheridan, Joe works his way...

    Box does it againTypical Joe Pickett novel. There was no way in the world I could put it down. I'm as hooked as I have been for years. "The Disappeared" is a wonderful thriller, with lots of seemingly loose ends that are actually tightly woven into a strong multi-faceted plot narrative. And once again CJ Box has made me wonder what will I ever do until Joe magically reappears in my kindle. It's a wonderfully fun and exciting escape into beautiful...

    Typical Joe Pickett - always at odds with the Governor and takes blame when it isn't his fault. I liked the way he involves family. In this book his oldest daughter Sheridan plays an important role. What did not make sense is that they were not able to locate a rental vehicle when rental cars usually have GPS location devices, particularly new vehicles rented at Denver International Airport. Box could have easily located the car in Mexico. Nate i...

    I'm a big fan of Joe Pickett and eagerly look forward to the next chapter in my favorite Wyoming game warden's life.This one is good, but not as good as some of his previous works. I will say the description of the dead of winter in Wyoming is so well written that I almost put on an extra sweater while reading. Beautiful country and a good mystery keep this one of the best mystery series around.Highly recommended!Due to be published in March 2018...

    Great read! Joe Pickett and family, in another engrossing western story. I read it from www.audible.com fantastic narrator. Can’t hardly wait for the next adventure. Mr. Box writes with authority and always presents some conservation issue tucked into a can’t put down story! Kudos to the author for another excellent read.

    I enjoyed the book; nice but somewhat predictable twist at the end. Joe Pickett is a solid character and I enjoyed seeing a bit more of adult Sheridan. I notice that the author is now ending stories with a little bit of a cliff hanger - at least with Joe - so it's fairly obvious he plans to continue the story.

    I read my first Joe Picket book about 5 months ago. Since then I have read them all as well as the other C.J.Box books.He is now on my automatic buy list. When a book is announced, I order it.This book continues the adventures and tribulations of Joe Picket and his family and friends. A fun read!

    I've read a lot of CJ Box books and really enjoyed this one. It's a page turner with excellent descriptive language -- made me feel as though I was in the bitter winter in Montana with lots of suspicious folks. I think it helps to have read previous Joe Pickett series to understand the characters. I'd recommend this one for sure!

    Always a good read I’m not a patient person, but to my surprise I enjoy CJ’s descriptions of the various landscapes. They work without destroying the momentum of the story line. And the story line is always fun.

    Another Great Book CJ Box continues to score 130% with this book. You really need to be following from book #1 in the series to fully appreciate the writing and story of how Joe Pickett starts his carr

    Love C J Box but......The book was great accept for the hospital part. ICU's do not use white boards, any patient on a moniter would cause alarms to go wild if they were attacked and heart stopped, and ICU patients are ways within view and a monitor tech watching.

    Best Joe Pickett yet.A Joe Pickett book will make you oblivious to anything else. I can't stop reading until I am done. This book was the best even though I said a few choice words at the end! C. J. Box made sure I would be waiting eagerly for the next book.

    Once again CJ Box has turned out a page turner. He has been able to keep up with time passing and things changing. In this book, His daughter Sheridan is working at an exclusive "dude" ranch and one of the guests disappears. Joe is asked by the new governor to look into it, but Joe thinks the governor is hiding something. Nate is able to come and help him, so all the best characters are here.
