It was always good to see Butch Roberson, Joe thought--a hardworking, upright local business owner whose daughter was friends with his own. Little did he know that when he talked to Butch that day in the forest, the man was about to disappear. He was heading into the mountains to scout elk, he said, but instead he was running. Two EPA employees had just been murdered, and all signs pointed to him as the killer. As the manhunt organized itself, Joe heard more of the story--about the tract of land Butch and his wife had bought to build their retirement home on, until the EPA declared it a wetland. About the penalties they charged him when he balked, new ones piling up every day, until the family was torn apart . . . and finally, it seems, the man just cracked. It was an awful story. But was it the whole story? The more Joe looks into it, the more he begins to wonder--and the more he finds himself in the middle of a war he never expected and never wanted. Powerful forces want Roberson not just caught but dead--and the same goes for anyone who stands in their way.

As always, a good narration by David Chandler, who seems to have channeled game warden Joe Pickett's character very well. Though there are the deaths of two sanctimonious EPA agents to puzzle out, and the evidence seems clear his despondent friend Butch is responsible, bureaucratic high-handedness is more the story here. No-good ex-Sherriff McClanahan immediately summons his own private posse on a disastrous bounty hunt into the Wyoming hills, while Joe tries to get there first to confront his friend. Nate Romanowski makes an edgy brief appearance as well, and updates on Joe & Marybeth's family of teen girls.
