In C.J. Box's Joe Pickett novel, Nowhere To Run, he sends his game warden out into the high mountain wilderness of Wyoming during his last week as the temporary game warden in the isolated town of Baggs. 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.
During this program Box talks with TWQ producer Chérie Newman about Nowhere To Run, including Joe Pickett's backstory and where the idea for this intense story came from. Box also reads from the book.
C.J. Box is the author of elevenJoe Pickett novels and three 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.
