Goodreads Review of Long Range

#1 New York Times bestseller C.J. Box returns with a blazing new Joe Pickett novel, in which the Wyoming game warden must investigate a murder that happens on his turf--a murder committed from a confoundingly long distance.

The wife of a prominent local judge is shot and killed on Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett's turf. But as Joe investigates, all signs point to the shot having been taken from an impossibly long distance. Joe has seen a lot in his time as warden, but he's never seen a killing like this. How could the shooting have been arranged? And who else is in the cross hairs?

At the same time--just as he's adjusting to the arrival of a new baby, his first child--Joe's best friend Nate Romanowski is attempting to decipher a startling grizzly attack in the area.

Beset by threats both man-made and natural, the two men must go to great lengths to figure out how to keep their loved ones safe.
