February 2— Cold Wind by C.J. Box

Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett makes a gruesome discovery while out on a routine patrol. The body dangling from a wind turbine is the fifth husband of his much despised mother-in-law, Missy. The townspeople have already tried and convicted Missy as soon as she is she is arrested for the murder. As much as Joe supports everyone’s dislike of the cold and calculating woman, the evidence does not convince him that she is the murderer. Now Pickett finds himself in the uncomfortable position of trying to find the real killer.
