Why did I read this?  I had heard that C.J. Box and the character Joe Pickett were really good and something I might like to read.

Joe Pickett is a game warden in the most rural part of Wyoming when a hunting guide, that he has had a previous run rides  his horse into  Pickett’s backyard and dies.  He was carrying an empty cooler that was really scratched up on the inside.  It grows into a controversy involving corrupt government officials, environmentalists, an oil pipeline and perhaps an endangered species.
