The Red Desert of Wyoming is a bleak, beautiful, punishing place for anybody, but never more dangerous than it is now for Joe Pickett, Nate Romanowski, and the one who should never have been there: Joe’s daughter Sheridan. But now the stakes are higher than ever. Nate Romanowski is off the grid, recuperating from wounds and trying to deal with past crimes, when he is suddenly confronted by a small team of elite professional special operators. They’re not here to threaten him, but to make a deal. They need help destroying a domestic terror cell in the Red Desert, and in return, they’ll make Nate’s criminal record disappear. But they are not what they seem, as Joe Pickett discovers.
