Aria & Aries, Head of Zeus -- an Aries Book
When a prominent University of Wyoming professor goes missing, authorities are stumped. That is, until Game Warden Joe Pickett makes two surprising discoveries in his district.
First, Joe finds the professor's vehicle parked on a remote mountainside. Then he finds the professor's frozen and mutilated body. When he attempts to learn more, Joe's investigation is obstructed by Federal agents, extreme environmentalists, and Governor Colter Allen.
Meanwhile, Joe's associate, falconer Nate Romanowski, is approached by a shadowy group of local militant activists who are gaining in power and influence, and demanding that Wyoming join other western states in seceding from the Union – by force, if necessary. They ask Nate to throw in his lot with them, but should he trust them, or is he being set up?
As a storm of peril gathers around them, Joe and Nate confront it in different ways – and maybe, for the first time, on opposite sides.

Another brilliant book in the ‘Joe Pickett’ series. Every book in this series has been brilliant, but they seem to get better and better. Great twists and turns with governor Rulon making a comeback in this story. At least Missy gets her cumuppence in this book (about time)
Now just the wait until the next book comes out
