    "Great Book!!"

    Being from Wyoming it is really neat to hear about the areas that I know and love. This however is not even close to the only reason I love this book. The Pickett series of books have a real feel to them with a real working mans hero type. Not one of these super human heros. C. J. Fox has a life long fan in me!

    Story
    "One Good Man In A Three Horse Hole"

    Each Joe Picket installment is better than the last, and this one I couldn't turn off. Each book reveals more of what makes the characters so intriguing and empathetic, even characters I am inclined to hate.
    I appreciate that Box touches on the action in past novels very briefly, so I don't feel my time is being wasted, hearing what I already know. For this very reason, though, I would encourage fans of Joe Picket to buy the print edition or the audio book, if you can find it, of "Winterkill." It is another terrific book, and fills in a lot of why and how Joe and Mary Beth and Nate come to be the people they are. The audio cassettes have a narrator other than David Chandler, and he does an excellent job.

    But back to, "Out of Range," the story finds Joe in Jackson's Hole, without his wife and girls to buoy him up...and the crossed wires of that situation are bad enough to cause one and all to lose their firm hold on just who they are and where their loyalties lie. Add all the mysteries, conflicts and characters that the new digs throw at Joe, the threats from within and without back at home, and you have one Joe Picket installment that you won't want to end. Even when Joe and Mary Beth are heading towards doing things that I do not want them to do, I cannot blame them, one little bit...it is enough to make me squirm! I have already bought and downloaded In Plain Sight! How great is it that I still have so many of these mysteries to listen to, before I have caught up with where Joe and is family are today??!!

    Story
    "Less believable than most in series."

    I felt the characters thinly drawn, quite one-dimensional except for the outfitter Smoke. Joe seems more naive than usual and cannot resist putting his foot in his mouth at every opportunity. While he is devoted to his family, he can't find a time or a way to call his wife for extended periods. Once again, when his family is threatened, Joe's mysterious friend Nate Romanowski comes to their rescue. You know from the outset who the bad guys are, and it isn't hard to figure out how they got to his colleague Will Jensen. The circumstances surrounding his suicide, and the ultimate explanation of how it was done simply wasn't credible. The mysterious, beautiful Stella is about as real as a runway model and just not believable. In sum, Box is a good writer, but the plot was weak.

    David Chandler's narration was excellent, as usual.

    "Joe Vs Joe"

    I love this one! Joe Pickett always seems a little unreal because he is so good and kind and perfect but in this one he is human. The different characters in this one are unlikable all of them for the most part but I still liked it a lot. I love it when a bad guy finally gets their due like that sheriff what's his name. You just can't beat Nate for friend and I really like Sheridan she is mature beyond her years. Again, David Chandler was most excellent as narrator.
