Joe Pickett is temporarily stationed in Jackson Hole, replacing one of his buddies who's just died of apparent suicide. The plot thickens. Theme wise, C.J. Box wants the reader to acknowledge the conflicts between the greedy developer and the tree hugger. This includes the depths to which the developer will go for profit. Additionally, one of the bad guys is a long-time outfitter whose livelihood is challenged. Joe also has communication problems with his wife Mary Beth, who deals with her own challenges in dad;s absence. The book is rife with themes and lessons; one just has to begin. ( )

Joe Pickett may have bitten off more than he can handle in this novel! He is temporarily stationed in Jackson Hole, the swankiest of swanky location for a game warden. One of his best friends has died and it is his place that Joe is taking.

Immediately the situation turns odd. Joe feels weird, people don't like him (putting it mildly!), he thinks his friend was murdered, not suicidal and the town's main developer's wife has her eye on Joe.

Meanwhile, Marybeth and the girls are having issues of their own and it all boils down to who do you trust. ( )

This is the first Joe Pickett novel I have read.
Its easy to read ok story about Joe trying to solve the death of the Park ranger he has replaced.
But to be honest I found this book rather far fetched and not at all believable.
Overall disappointed in this book. ( )

Another very enjoyable story of Joe Pickett, Wyoming Game Warden. This time he's in Jackson where people don't play by the rules and yet again he finds himself in the thick of it making enemies of very important people. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425209458, Mass Market Paperback)

Game warden Joe Pickett returns in a twisting, action-packed tale of greed, power, and murder.

Joe Pickett is attempting to enjoy-all right, survive-his mother-in-law's wedding to a local big-shot rancher when he receives some disturbing news: Will Jensen,a fellow Wyoming game warden and a good friend, has killed himself. And Joe's been picked to temporarily run Jensen's Teton district.

Jackson, Wyoming, is a far cry from Joe's hometown of Saddlestring-it's the epicenter for many environmental extremists and an elite playground for the rich and powerful-and Joe quickly finds himself in over his head. Yet despite the pressures of his new job, he can't get his friend's suicide out of his mind. By all accounts, Will had changed in the last few months, becoming violent and unpredictable.

The closer Joe comes to the truth about Will's death, the more his own life spirals out of control-and he realizes that if he's not careful, he may end up as Jackson's next victim. Out of Range proves once again that C. J. Box is one of the most original and entertaining voices in mystery fiction.
