In the crosshairs, no one is safe.
In the new Joe Pickett novel, the Wyoming game warden must investigate an attempted assassination on his own turf...
Wyoming's Twelve Sleep County is shaken when a would-be assassin takes aim at a local judge. Their shot narrowly misses, severely wounding the judge's wife. All local law enforcement officers – including game warden Joe Pickett – are called in to track down the shooter.
The shot appears to have been taken from an almost impossible distance. Inevitably, the Feds' first suspect is ex-special forces operative, Nate Romanowski. The only way Joe will be able to prove his friend's innocence is by finding the real shooter.
Meanwhile, a startling grizzly attack in the next county draws Joe across the border to join the rescue efforts. But something in the victim's account isn't adding up, and Joe suspects all is not as it appears...
Beset by threats both man-made and natural, Joe Pickett must go to great lengths to keep his loved ones safe and solve an impossible crime in the riveting new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author C.J. Box.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Tracking down a killer in the great outdoors is not a job for the faint of heart. Thankfully, game warden Joe Pickett, the soft-spoken hero of C. J. Box’s hit series, is up to the task. Though Joe already has his hands full with the death of a local hunting guide, he jumps on the case when the wife of a powerful judge is shot in her own home. Evidence suggests the shooter was almost impossibly far away, leaving Pickett to figure out not just who did it, but how. As always, Box gives us a satisfying mix of memorable characters (both suspicious and otherwise), whodunit clues, and lavish descriptions of the wild Wyoming landscape. Long Range made us want to take a trip to the Equality State ourselves—although we’d prefer to have Joe as our guide.
