Wyoming Game Warden Joe Pickett is once again waist high in both snow and intrigue in Storm Watch.
While being snowed in here in southern California in March(!), I decided to stay in bed under multiple blankets and read a thriller. If my intention was to forget about the snow outside, it didn’t work as a snowstorm is raging in the book as well.
Joe finds a body during a snowstorm in an isolated building in a remote ranch. He has to leave the body behind to avoid getting trapped with no cell service or heat. When the local police return the next day, the building is locked, and the body is gone. Joe decides to low-key investigate despite being warned off by the governor. What he finds involves bitcoin mining, elk antler rustling, and a radical local terrorist organization all in remote Wyoming.
Storm Watch is another fun ride into a culture that seems foreign to me here in Southern California. It’s a must read for fans of the series. 4 stars!
Thanks to G.P. Putnam’s Sons and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
