Out of Range - Joe Pickett Series Author:C. J. Box C. J. Box?s bestselling Joe Pickett novels have earned him a spot on every serious suspense fan?s shortlist of favorites. The tightly constructed Out of Range brings game warden Joe to a new, remote beat in Wyoming?s vast countryside to investigate the suspicious death of the previous warden.
Another good Joe Pickett story. The only flaws in Box's character is his rotten mother-in-law that everyone becomes heartily SICK of and doesn't want to read any further from earlier books. The second flaw is Joe Pickett's lack of skill with firearms. When is Joe going to wise up and learn to use his weapons and stop relying on the highly exaggerated abilities of Nate to save him over and over. Even the most dimwitted of characters must realize how dangerous his incompetence is. If Nate can teach Shannon about falconry, I think he could teach Joe how to shoot. Or would that be too logical, C.J.? Hmmmm?
