Long Range

Author: C.J. Box

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.

Long Range (Joe Pickett, #20)

Publishers Weekly (starred review):

Clever plotting keeps this conspiracy yarn moving briskly, and the scenes depicting Nate’s abuse while in prison are harrowing. This is another top-flight crime yarn illustrating why Box’s readers are never happier than when Joe and Nate have reason to “get western.”
