Off the Grid by C.J. Box is a terrifyingly realistic thriller that takes place in the very isolated Red Desert area in Wyoming. This sixteenth installment in the Joe Pickett series reunites Game Warden Joe Pickett with his good friend, Nate Romanowski, when their paths unexpectedly cross after the outgoing governor asks Joe to investigate the suspicious happenings in the desert.

Nate has been living completely off the grid when an unspecified government agency sends two of its agents to coerce him into finding missing journalist Muhammad "Ibby" Ibraaheem. Although Ibby's reputation is impeccable, his disappearance nearly two years earlier certainly caught the attention of the federal government and it appears he may be involved in some type of terrorist plot. Nate wants nothing more than to be left alone, but the agents' promise of expunging his record coupled with some very unsubtle threats convince him to accept the assignment.

Just as Joe is heading home from a long day in the field, a distress call about a rogue bear possibly attacking a hunter puts his evening plans on hold. Using info from the GPS trackers on both the hunter and the bear, his worst fears are realized when he finds the nearly dead hunter in the bear's cache. Joe narrowly escapes the hunter's fate when the bear returns but both he and the bear escape the encounter unscathed. With the bear's whereabouts now unknown, he thinks outgoing Governor Spencer Rulon is planning to assign him the nearly impossible task of tracking the bear but much to his surprise, Rulon wants Joe to investigate what is going on in the Red Desert.

Neither Nate nor Joe is prepared for what is awaiting them in the desert. The conditions in the remote area are harsh and unforgiving but what they discover at Ibby's camp ratchets the danger level into the stratosphere. Ibby's idealistic plan is about to come to fruition but, unbeknownst to him, the other men he is working with are planning an attack so catastrophic that it is nearly incomprehensible. Nate and Joe are determined to foil the terrorist plot but they are so completely outnumbered and outgunned, they cannot help but wonder if they will escape with their lives.

With a plausible plot and plenty of action, Off the Grid by C.J. Box is a pulse-pounding thriller that is fast-paced and engrossing. The storyline is horrifyingly realistic in this post 9/11 era and the bad guys are chillingly brutal and willing to die for their cause. The beautiful yet desolate Red Desert is the ideal setting for these nefarious dealings and it is also the perfect backdrop for Joe and Nate's final stand against the evildoers. A riveting novel of suspense, this sixteenth installment in the Joe Pickett series can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend the entire series. ( )

The book starts off as start of a distant feel but ramps up as the two plot lines intersect. Even though this is book #16 in the Joe Pickett series, it's only the second book of this series that I've read.

Nate Romanowski lives off the grid by choice--and by necessity since he's a wanted fugitive. The illness of his girlfriend, Olivia Brannon,'s mother reveals their location to those looking for him. They need his falconry skills to bond with Ibby, also a falconer who is off the grid.

Meanwhile, Joe Pickett is tracking a grizzly bear who killed a hunter, and his daughter Sheridan (who'd once been an apprentice to Nate) agrees to go camping as a volunteer with her roommate.

Off the grid also refers to how we'd end up having to live if EMP pulses manage to disable electric stations and other key targets that could be hit by terrorists. ( )

I love this series for its outdoor Wyoming setting for the action and its game warden hero, Joe Pickett, who is a wholesome family man with a quirky sense of humor. This book features Nate as much as any of the characters. There are some really bad guys who turn on the super really bad guys and the book continues with Nate and Joe having adventures to rescue Sheridan. Terrific narration by David Chandler

I know all the reviews are great and again I'm the Lone Ranger on this one. I read this title because my husband was reading it, and we thought it would be fun to read something together. First off the political undertones were off-putting to me. This became more pronounced toward the end of the book. The full description of the hero came at the end, which was weird. I had in my mind what he looked like only to be surprised how off base I was in the end.
I'm probably going to get flamed for this, but there is also underlying racism in this novel. You can hate me for being a liberal, but I won't be reading anything else from this Wyoming Author. That's just me. ( )
