An original short story from iconic thriller collection Match Up, edited by Lee Child, featuring a never-before-seen pairing between bestsellers C. J. Box and Sandra Brown – along with their popular series character Joe Pickett and Lee Coburn.
CJ Box’s Joe Pickett, Game Warden, meets Sandra Brown’s Lee Coburn, FBI Agent (from the novel Lethal) in the wilds of Wyoming. Pickett attempts to arrest Coburn for a murder only to become the target of shooters out to kill Coburn.
Joe has been a game warden along time, understands about how animals re-act with man in the woods. Even his horse could sense something was wrong, but being Joe, he still went into the camp.
Leaving his district of Saddle String, Joe lends a hand in Teton County when the local game warden needs help checking out some elk hunting camps. It doesn’t take long for Joe to cross paths with Coburn, and while their initial meeting isn’t exactly friendly, the two end up working together in order to stay alive once bad guys show up looking for trouble.
