Mystery | Suspense
Joe Pickett is attempting to survive his mother-in-law's
wedding to a wealthy local rancher when he receives some
disturbing news: Will Jensen, a fellow Wyoming game warden
and a good friend, has killed himself. And Joe's been picked
to temporarily run Jensen's Teton district.
Jackson Hole is a far cry from Joe's hometown of
Saddlestring -- it's the epicenter for many environmental
extremists and an elite playground for the rich and powerful
-- and Joe quickly finds himself over his head. Yet despite
the pressures of his new job and his surprising and
disturbing attraction for a married woman named Stella, he
can't get his friend's suicide out of his mind. By all
accounts, Will had changed in the last few months of his
life, becoming violent and unpredictable.
Meanwhile, back at home, Marybeth is frightened by
threatening phone calls and asks the outlaw falconer Nate
Romanowski for assistance, not realizing she has opened the
door to much more than help.
The closer Joe comes to the truth about Will's death, the
more his own life begins to mirror Will's and spiral out of
control -- and he realizes that if he's not careful, he may
end up as Jackson's next victim.
