He climbed out of the rental car and stretched, not used to being cramped up like that for hours. Maxine didn't recognize him until he got out-she was looking for his pickup-and came bounding outside through the screen door. Dad!" Lucy yelled from her window. It was one of the best things he had ever heard. Marybeth appeared smiling at the front door, looking blond, fit, and beautiful. They embraced just inside the front gate, Lucy now running out to see him.

Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett is about to become the hunted in this suspenseful thriller in the New York Times bestselling series. When a good friend and fellow warden kills himself, Joe Pickett is chosen to temporarily run his Teton district. I’ve never met anyone who had a song written about them, Joe said. Now you have, she said dismissively. But he thought she was pleased that he knew. Do you use animal metaphors often when describing people?. She looked straight at him, with boldness, as she had in the restaurant when he first saw her. I’ve never really thought about it, Joe said, but I guess I d. .Someone else I knew did that, she said, and her recollection brought out an almost imperceptible flinch in her eyes

Receiving the news that a good friend and fellow game warden has committed suicide, Joe Pickett is temporarily assigned to the man's district in Jackson, Wyoming, and finds himself rendered a pawn in a struggle between environmental extremists and their wealthy, powerful adversaries, a situation that poses clues about his friend's death.

There's a rule of thumb included in most how-to-write-a-book books to the effect that an author should never impose a plot on his or her characters, but should allow the plot to grow out of them. Mr. Box, who is one of my favorite authors, forgot to follow that rule in this one, and it suffers as a result.

Joe Picket, the protagonist in this and all other C. J. Box books to date, is a wonderful character, and the author has put us so inside the character in the other books that we KNOW what Joe is likely to think and do in almost any situation. But Mr. Box evidently felt the need to crank up the tension this time around, and for whatever reason introduces events that do increase the suspense but which violate the character of Joe Pickett that has been established. It's a shame. Out of Range therefore falls outside the range (!) of the series, which otherwise gets at least four stars per book, and sometimes five.

Joe, the Wyoming Game Warden usually working and living in a mythical Twelve Sleep County, including the only slightly mythical town of Saddlestring, is sent to deal with the aftermath of another warden's apparent suicide in the Jackson Hole area. Needless to say, the suicide is not what it at first appears to be, but Joe feels himself falling into the same mess that caused the other guy's death, with the implication that Joe is headed for the same fate. We know of course that it will all turn out all right, otherwise the next dozen books wouldn't exist (!), but the plot revolves around how he's going to escape with his sanity and his life.

The main plot does grow out of the characters, thankfully. It's a couple of contrived subplots that violate our picture of who Joe Pickett is. C.J. Box is a good enough writer that this episode in the series is worth reading in spite of the problems. I just wish it was as good as the others.

If you like the Joe Pickett series, Out of Range again delivers what fans have come to expect from author C. J. Box

Out of Range takes Pickett out of Saddlestring, WY and delivers him to the unfamiliar world of Jackson, where the pace is faster, the monied interests greater and the visibility higher in Wyoming's scenic playground. Pickett must take a temporary posting for a fellow game warden who killed himself after his life took a series of wrong turns.

But as is the case in this series, there is more than meets the eye. Pickett must contend with wealthy and powerful developers, political power houses, independent minded hunting guides and a host of other characters as he investigates his colleague's death. In his longest sojourn away from his wife and family, Pickett must also deal with the temptations of the road while Marybeth comes to rely upon a family friend who is the only male she can lean on while Joe is away.

Fast paced with interesting characters and the usual plot twists found in the series. A good read again, Mr. Box!

Not sure who the dope is here, the main character or the author. After Joe's previous experiences, why is he more foolish than before? His main priority is to scatter the guy's ashes? Of the female character, Ennius, "why don't I mind being her prey?" He forgets to load or carry his gun? Seriously. Real people learn from their mistakes. People with morals use them to guide their choices. If family is a top priority, nothing prevents you from contact. AND people who feel sick for no reason go to the doctor. Authors who use stupidity to forward their plots lose my interest fast.

Although I'm sure that most game warden's real lives are no way this interesting, this was a great story. Take away all the glitz of this tale and you still have the fact that game wardens have very dangerous and lonely jobs. They work alone most of the time and are dealing with heavily armed individuals miles away from civilization and help. These men and women have very important jobs and don't often get much recognition. I hope these stories help change that a little. A terrific read!

I am on my second read-through of this entire series, only because I love the character of Joe Pickett. Joe aspires to be the "perfect" family man in the isolating profession of a Wyoming fish and game warden, which he loves: he loves the isolation, but needs his family base desperately. He wants to be the all around good guy, but really seems to harbor a bravado that covers up a lack of self-esteem generated by a turbulent childhood. Throughout the series, the situations he encounters and the actions he's forced to take cause his increasing awareness of how brutal his world really is and how hidden rages make him do things he doesn't want to do. My only complaint is, his wife is just a bit too long-suffering to seem realistic (maybe a male author's ideal of the perfect "help mate"?), although in this particular story she does seem far more human. Out of Range literally takes Joe out of his comfort zone, away from his family, where situations lead to conflict between husband and wife and temptations that test the strength of that much-needed family base. It's a great read. I would recommend this series and this story to anyone who loves the Walt Longmire mysteries. Read it first, if you want to: but, it's always better to start at the beginning of a series and let the characters "grow" on you. Happy reading!
