    "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!

    "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??!!

    I have always loved to read. As a child my mom actually grounded me from books if I was in trouble. Noone can do that now. Yay!

    "Box, Chandler and the West are a Perfect Combo"
    What did you love best about Out of Range?

    It feels like I am reading about home. I live in the mountains of the west, the characters, the wildlife, the views ... it is what I know and love about the west. Joe Pickett also grows on me more each outing. I feel like I know him better and that he is becoming more real with each book. Up until this book he and Mary Beth were almost too perfect, so I like seeing the chinks in their armor.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Other than Joe, my favorite character is definitely Nate ... so I missed him in this book. I hope he returns!


    Have you listened to any of David Chandler’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listed to each Pickett novel in order. But I don't believe I have heard Mr Chandler in any other books yet.

    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.

    "Bravo Box"
    What did you love best about Out of Range?

    I was late to discover this writer and series ( and I both READ and LISTEN a lot ). All the writing - characters, plot, setting, action - is VERY appealing to me thus I have been going through the entire series - most via AUDIBLE; some in print. The narrator is excellent with all the different characters he has to "voice" for. There is little else to say frankly thus my consistent five stars across the review. Sure some of the books thus far perhaps one plot is a bit better than the other but I'd still 5 star them. I have had some favored authors that I follow and you can tell when they are "lagging" - authors I have always pre ordered but now I find I HOLD until I read some reviews as they are just not up to their past standards. That has not occurred with BOX. Maybe it will in the future BUT certainly NOT NOW - not his current nor past works.
