One Last Lie by Paul Doiron - June 30, 2020
From the book jacket: The disappearance of Mike Bowditch's beloved mentor reveals
an ominous connection to a 15-year-old cold case in the new thriller from bestselling
Edgar Award finalist Paul Doiron.
"Never trust a man without secrets." These are the last words retired game warden
Charley Stevens speaks to his surrogate son, Warden Investigator Mike Bowditch,
before the old man vanishes without explanation. Mike suspects his friend's
mysterious departure has to do with an antique warden badge that recently
resurfaced at a flea market - a badge connected to a cold case from Charley's past
that the Maine Warden Service would rather forget.
Fifteen years ago, a young warden was sent on an undercover mission to infiltrate a notorious poaching ring and never returned. He was presumed dead, but his body was never recovered. Desperate to find Charley before he meets a similar fate, Mike's investigation brings him to the miles of forest and riverside towns along the Canadian border - but he soon learns that even his fellow wardens have secrets to keep. And Charley's past isn't the only one coming to light; his daughter, Stacey, has resurfaced to search for her missing father, and Mike must grapple with the return of the woman he once thought was gone forever.
Forced to question his faith in the man he sees as a father, Mike must reopen a cold case that powerful people - one of whom may be a killer - will do anything to keep closed.
Long Range by C.J. Box - March 3, 2020
Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett must investigate an attempted murder--a
crime committed from a confoundingly long distance--in the riveting new novel
from #1 New York Times bestselling author C. J. Box.
When Joe Pickett is asked to join the rescue efforts for the victim of a startling
grizzly attack, he reluctantly leaves his district behind. One survivor of the grizzly
's rampage tells a bizarre story, but just as Joe begins to suspect the attack is
not what it seems, he is brought home by an emergency on his own turf. Some-
one has targeted a prominent local judge, shooting at him from a seemingly
impossible distance. While the judge was not hit, his wife is severely wounded,
and it is up to Joe to find answers--and the shooter.
The search for the would-be assassin becomes personal when Joe's best friend, Nate Romanowski --just as he's adjusting to the arrival of his first child--falls under suspicion for the crime. It's a race against the clock as Joe tries to clear Nate's name and identify the real shooter, all while deciphering the grizzly encounter. Beset by threats both man-made and natural, the two men must go to great lengths to keep their loved ones safe.
