#1 New York Times bestseller C.J. Box returns with a blazing new Joe Pickett novel, in which the Wyoming game warden must investigate a murder that happens on his turf--a murder committed from a confoundingly long distance. When the wife of a prominent local judge is wounded on Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett's turf, all signs point to the shot having been taken from an impossible distance. At the same time--just as he's adjusting to the arrival of his first child--Joe's best friend, Nate Romanowski, is suspected of being the assassin. All this happens while Joe is attempting to decipher a startling grizzly attack. Beset by threats both man-made and natural, the two men must go to great lengths to keep their loved ones safe.
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. Seasoned narrator David Chandler is a Broadway actor and it shows—the depth and pace of his voice combined with Box’s writing had us listening eagerly for what was to come. Long Range made us want to take a trip to the Equality State ourselves—although we’d much prefer to have Joe as our guide.
