About Long Range
**”Impressive precision and heart-gripping suspense….Good characters, an extra good story, and great scenes of life and death in the wilderness”–New York Times Book Review
Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett must investigate an attempted murder–a crime committed from a confoundingly long distance–in the riveting new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author C. J. Box.**
When Joe Pickett is asked to join the rescue efforts for the victim of a startling grizzly attack, he reluctantly leaves his district behind. One survivor of the grizzly’s rampage tells a bizarre story, but just as Joe begins to suspect the attack is not what it seems, he is brought home by an emergency on his own turf. Someone has targeted a prominent local judge, shooting at him from a seemingly impossible distance. While the judge was not hit, his wife is severely wounded, and it is up to Joe to find answers–and the shooter.
The search for the would-be assassin becomes personal when Joe’s best friend, Nate Romanowski –just as he’s adjusting to the arrival of his first child–falls under suspicion for the crime. It’s a race against the clock as Joe tries to clear Nate’s name and identify the real shooter, all while deciphering the grizzly encounter. Beset by threats both man-made and natural, the two men must go to great lengths to keep their loved ones safe.
Long Range Review
Another great novel! Can’t wait until the next book comes out.
I really think this is the best book ever. I had some chuckles with joe.
Joe Pickett’s adventures just get better and better. Bad guys who don’t appear to be bad guys, Nate Romanowski and his new family, Joe’s family growing up – all combine for a great story. It’s funny how C.J.Box’s characters grow on you to the point where they seem like friends. More to come I hope.
Another great read from C J Box. He is good a weaving several story lines into the same novel.
I love the continuing story of the Pickett. Please keep them comin.
