Publisher Marketing:
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Joe Pickett series comes a thrilling collection of suspense stories about the Wyoming he knows so well--and the dark deeds and impulses that can be found there...

C. J. Box has been hailed for his brilliant storytelling, with a style rich in character, suspense, and sense of place. That same brilliance is exemplified in the ten riveting stories--three of them never before published--that make up Shots Fired.

In "One-Car Bridge," one of four Joe Pickett stories, Pickett goes up against a just plain mean landowner, with disastrous results. In "Shots Fired," his investigation into a radio call nearly ends up being the last thing he ever does.

"Pirates of Yellowstone," features two Eastern European tough guys who find out what it means to be strangers in a strange land, and in "Le Sauvage Noble," the stranger is a Lakota in Paris who enjoys playing the noble savage for the French women--until he meets Sophie. Then he discovers what savage really means....

Shots Fired is proof once again why "Box is a force to be reckoned with" ( The Providence Journal-Bulletin).
