Description

Game warden Joe Pickett returns in a twisting, action-packed tale of greed, power, and murder.

Joe Pickett is attempting to enjoy-all right, survive-his mother-in-law's wedding to a local big-shot rancher when he receives some disturbing news: Will Jensen,a fellow Wyoming game warden and a good friend, has killed himself. And Joe's been picked to temporarily run Jensen's Teton district.

Jackson, Wyoming, is a far cry from Joe's hometown of Saddlestring-it's the epicenter for many environmental extremists and an elite playground for the rich and powerful-and Joe quickly finds himself in over his head. Yet despite the pressures of his new job, he can't get his friend's suicide out of his mind. By all accounts, Will had changed in the last few months, becoming violent and unpredictable.

The closer Joe comes to the truth about Will's death, the more his own life spirals out of control-and he realizes that if he's not careful, he may end up as Jackson's next victim. Out of Range proves once again that C. J. Box is one of the most original and entertaining voices in mystery fiction.

    I'm reading these CJ Box - Joe Pickett novels in the order they were written, and by this novel Joe has matured in himself and exhibits less trepidation and impulsiveness. It was a quick read and the side story focused on Nate and Marybeth was clear and interesting. There was less of the world against Joe and more believable beaureaucratic and political interaction. There was a scene where Joe interacted with an outfitter that felt earthy and authentic and I was glad to see Joe step away from his usual by the book methods and attempt to incorporate some interpretation of all the facts into his decisions.
  • Always great

    Just when I think these "Pickett" books can't get any better. C. J. Box hits it out of the park! Out of Range takes it to a new level! My favorite book so far... At least until I read the next "Joe Pickett" novel...

    Having spent time in Wyoming, I find C.J. Box to be someone who has probably done the same. And he must love it as much as I. He writes with authority and authenticity. Mr. Box was recommended to me by an acquaintance and I am extremely glad he did. I have been reading through his collection and can't wait to start the next book. Everything he writes about Wyoming and it's people ring absolutely true. He captures the wilderness, and it's ruggedness and otherworldliness, with beautiful clarity. Joe picket and his family are brought to life with simplicity and realism. I feel I know them personally. Joe, as depicted, is the kind of man who should be respected and admired. Mr. Box has created a classic character. I wish I was more like him. READ ANYTHING BY C.J. BOX.

    I enjoyed Blue Heaven tremendously. Thank goodness I had read that first, because if Out of Range was the first CJ Box book, I would never read another.
