About a year or so ago I was ambling through my local library looking to find a new author. I’d seen CJ Box novels before but never tried one. I finally did. And what a great decision it was on my part.
When you take a shot and gamble on a ‘new author, (new to me), you never know what you’re in for. Out of Range is the 5th novel I’ve read by Mr. Box and I can now include him as one of my 5 favorite authors.
This novel is no different than other novels featuring Joe Picket. And ...more

There were parts of this story I really liked and parts that left me wanting. I liked Joe's interaction with Smoke. Smoke was an interesting character. I liked Joe being out of his comfort zone and working a different district. I thought he was a little slow on the uptake but loved him anyway. I did not like Stella.
