The 12th book in the "Joe Pickett" series is one I've been waiting for as it features Joe's shadowy best friend, Nate Romanowski, and finally reveals why he is been off the grid and who is after him.
 
Nate has been an on and off again presence in this series and his mysterious past and why he lives alone has made him a curious character, one you want to know more about. Nate is again on edge as one of his former special forces friend has been killed, and knows his former mentor, Nemcek, is on his way to finish him off. Nate reluctantly finally tells Joe of why his mentor is out to kiil him and the rest of the team and what happened in their past to justify it.
 
I also love the back story of Nate being a master Falconer, it adds another dimension to his motives.
 
I'm a big fan of C.J. Box and this series and I wasn't let down by this book, this book does stand alone but you might want to read a couple of his earlier books.
