    Joe Pickett is one of those characters you can't help liking. He still has his problems when it comes to government vehicles but this time it wasn't so bad. This is one of the best books i've read in a while and I'm glad that Nate got the opportunity to dish out some justice in his own way. It makes me really glad when an author creates characters and can keep new stories coming year after year. Sadly the books doesn't last very long. I have to t...

    The fascination of shooting as a sport depends almost wholly on whether you are at the right or wrong end of the gun. - P.G. WodehouseAuthor C.J. Box is back with #20 of one of my very favorite series - Wyoming Game Warden Joe Pickett. As always, Box writes a consistently exciting thriller. You would think that after this many books that the series might be getting stale but not so with this one.Joe and his wife have moved into bigger company hou...

    Long Range is the twentieth instalment in the game warden and law enforcement officer Joe Pickett series, set in Twelve Sleep Country, Wyoming, United States. Each of the books can be read standalones without any issue but this is such a superb series it's difficult to see why you would choose to miss out on all of the other spectacular stories which were just as thrilling as this was. When Joe Pickett is asked to join the rescue efforts for the ...

    This starts off with a bang (literally) and doesn't stop. I admit up front that I've read every one of the books in this series and this feels, like all the others, as if I'm right back in Joe Pickett's space in Wyoming. He's a game warden who solves crimes not involving his jurisdiction, the best friend of Nate, a falconer with quite the background, and the husband of Mary Beth, a truly terrific woman. It's a series that delivers a satisfying re...

    Wow. CJ Box does it again. I do think you need to read the previous books in this series to understand all that's happening in Long Range. But this 20th book in the series kept me on the edge of my seat. My husband read it right after I did and agreed it's a winner. The deep knowledge CJ Box has of the ranger life and of Montana brings you right to the location of Joe Pickett and his family. I love how Box keeps you guessing the entire time in th...

    Won this in a Goodreads Giveaway--Thank you!! Joe Pickett just can not stay away from trouble. Two very different scenarios happen in this story, one involving grizzly bears and one involving an egoistical sheriff, a corrupt doctor, a love struck prosecutor and a tyrannical judge. All this along with the usual characters---Joe, Marybeth, Nate and even Missy (love to hate her) and local folks. They make a good team, with the exception of Missy. Ve...

    Incredible!!! Could not put this one down. What a great read. If you are not familiar with this series, read it now. This is one of the best in the series and the best book I’ve read so far this year.

    More. I want more. More Joe Pickett, more Marybeth, more Nate and even more Missy and corrupt authorities. After 20 Joe Pickett books you’d think it would be the same old story, but it’s not. Long Range catches up with all the key characters at a new stage in their lives, Joe and Marybeth are empty nesters and Nate’s on the grid with a new baby. Their lives are upended by a shooting and a cartel hitman. (That’s all I’ll say to avoid spo...

    Okay, readers. Write this one down because it comes out in March and you definitely need to put it on your to-read list. I love this character, in fact I like all these characters and look forward to a new addition to this series all the time. This one will not disappoint. I was hooked from the opening quotes. There is certainly enough action and mystery to make this one of the best C. J. Box has written! Bring on more!Highly recommended!

    4.5 stars.The twentieth installment in the marvelous Joe Pickett series, Long Range by C.J. Box is an absolutely riveting mystery.Wyoming Fish and Game Warden Joe Pickett is out of his territory helping Jackson Hole Game Warden Mike Martin locate the body of hunting guide Jim Trenary. According to out of state hunter Julius Talbot, the two men were suddenly attacked by a bear. Talbot managed to escape without injury, but Trenary is appears to hav...

    Box writes mysteries that have at least two story lines and I always struggle to write a concise review involving the multiple directions in his novels. In this one game warden Joe Pickett is working with a team to recover the body of a hunting guide who has been killed in a bear attack. In the second main story line a judge's wife is shot by a bullet intended for her husband.The other problem with writing about a series is the fear of spoilers f...

    Long Range is the 19th book in the Joe Pickett series. I just love this series and hate that I have to wait another year for the next book.The book starts as Joe is accompanying another ranger and others to the scene of a bear charge that resulted in the mauling death of a hunting guide. However, Joe’s part in the search is interrupted when he’s picked up by helicopter to help find the shooter of Judge Hewitt’s wife, Sue. Hewitt has insiste...

    I've always loved Mr. Box's novels, in very large part due to the almost poetic way in which he describes the Wyoming countryside and wildlife. Because this novel has as one of its primary participants Joe's unique friend Nate and his Strike Force, it was especially enjoyable to read. The only parts I skimmed through (and which resulted in a one-star demerit) were the ones dedicated to the various kids, about whom I couldn't care less and whose i...

    Lee Child calls C. J. Box one of today’s solid-gold, A-list, must-read writers. I call him fun, a great go-to writer in between the serious nonfiction stuff. Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett (yes, the theme works) must investigate an attempted murder – a crime committed from a confoundingly long distance (hence, the title) – in this riveting new novel. If you’re a Joe Pickett fan, say no more; put this one on your reserved list at your loc...

    (3 1/2). Wow, this is the 20th Joe Pickett book. I have read each and every one of them. This is not the best and certainly not the worst (I do not think any of them would actually qualify for worst). Joe is in great form in this one, and there is a fair amount of page time given to my favorite side character, Nate Romanowski. We also have plenty of Marybeth, a token appearance from her evil mom, Missy, and the usual crew of interesting law enfor...

    The Wolf Pack sequel!Another wonderful ride from Mr. Box. I had just finished rereading The Wolf Pack when this book arrived in my Kindle library. I had forgotten that I purchased in as a prerelease. C. J. Box is my favorite author and he did not disappoint in the slightest with this publication. It seemed that I was actually riding along with Joe. I simply can’t wait to read the next story in this great series.

    A another winner by C J BoxI look forward to finding out that this author has written a new Joe Pickett Novel. His stories are always factual and exciting. I always find the life and times of his good friend Nate Romanowski fascinating as well. I am ditto have Joe's daughters becoming adults but I hope to see them stay involved in his books. It is equally as exciting to see Nate and Liz and Kestrel as exciting story lines in the future books.

    I received this book as a winner of a give away, which was pretty exciting in and of itself. First of all, I’m not going into the plot details except that it is a good solid mystery and classic, loveable Joe Pickett and of course, the enigmatic Nate. The opening was a strange, beautiful and terrible. Strange in the choice of subject. Beautiful in the captivating and lyrical prose of a journey. Terrible in that the subject is man made culminates...

    Awesome as alwaysMy, oh my, the things people do in the name of love. Joe, Nate, Wyoming, technologically advanced weapons and such all create once more a book that's almost impossible to put down. Always ready for the next one. Read all of the series for the most enjoyment. Backstory rules!

    Another can’t put down CJ Box/Joe Pickett novelWyoming’s Dudley Doright game warden and sidekick from afar Nate Romanowski with another adventure. The plot has twists from corrupt District Attorney’s, Doctors and lawmen in the rural setting of Wyoming. This is the next must read in the series.

Mary Beth gets to show off her librarian superpowers. What is not to like?As usual I liztened to the audiobook. The narration by David Chandler was good.

    It's always enjoyable to find out what's happening with Joe and company in Saddlestring. Long-range weapons, and Missy, and bears -- oh my! I was hoping for a slightly different ending, but at least one of my wishes was granted.

    The Joe Pickett series is one of my favorite book series. While this book was good, I am pretty sick of Missy. She’s irritating to say the least. As soon as she popped up in this book I almost stopped going any further. But alas, my curiosity won and I finished it.

    One of my favorite authors. Kept me guessing in this one … think I've read all his books now. So, if you like the west, animals, and want to know more about park rangers, tune in to Joe Pickett … he might surprise you.

    I've enjoyed this series for so long that I don't know if I can objectively rate them. Sitting down with a new installment in the series feels like catching up with old friends . . . that happen to get shot at a lot.
