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??!!

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!
