The Disappeared

Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett has two lethal cases to contend with in this electrifying #1 New York Times-bestseller from C. J. Box.

Wyoming's new governor isn't sure what to make of Joe Pickett, but he has a job for him that is extremely delicate. A prominent female British executive never came home from the high-end guest ranch she was visiting, and the British Embassy is pressing hard. Pickett knows that happens sometimes--these ranches are stocked with handsome young cowboys, and "ranch romances" aren't uncommon. But no sign of her months after she vanished? That suggests something else.

At the same time, his friend Nate Romanowski has asked Joe to intervene with the feds on behalf of falconers who can no longer hunt with eagles even though their permits are in order. Who is blocking the falconers and why? The more he investigates both cases, the more someone wants him to go away. Is it because of the missing woman or because he's become Nate's advocate? Or are they somehow connected? The answers, when they come, will be even worse than he'd imagined.

Good read but disappointed3 star

I'm disappointed that ending leaves us hanging and waiting for part two. Great read and story I thought but I hate when these good authors charge so much for ebook I can't even share and is only part one of an unfinished story. Now I need to wait a year for sequel and pay even more 35


First Box book I haven’t enjoyed...3 star

The Diappeared2 star

Rather disappointed for the first time reading all the books. It was a good read but very short and lacking the usual remarkable story telling. It was like he himself was either getting bored with the storyline, dozed off and suddenly awakened and realized he had to get it done before the publishing deadline. The last few pages summed up the whole mystery but left me severely lacking cohesion in a storytelling way. Not the usual mystery associated with the various characters. Nate was like an afterthought and Joe’s usual analytical style just left him seemingly a disinterested third party. Genuinely disappointed after these years and previous novels. Two stars at the most 25


Great Read5 star

Love the Joe Pickett novels. This guy can’t catch a break and this book is no exception. Joe sticks to his principles and always clashes with higher ups. Great storyline touched with some sad realities of our times. Fast moving with twists and turns. Highly recommend to all who love Wyoming and the tales of Joe Pickett 55


DLP2 star

First time I have been disappointed in a CJ Box book. This was horrible. So slow and boring. I kept thinking it would get better but it never did. Even the ending was horrible. Don’t waste your time with this book. 25

Another first class novel by a five star author. This series has all the elements needed to grab the reader from the first page and then builds to an emotional unexpected ending. 55
