This was somewhat a three star for me. Joe and Marybeth seems to drift apart a bit while Joe was called to another town where another Game Warden committed suicide. Joe didn't buy it and investigates. Some side story about environmental extremists and we meet the jerk sheriff again. Sweet ending! ( )

I love the character of Joe Pickett so, so much but there are a couple of things in this one that annoyed me.

1. The setting. Joe knows his own territory like the back of his hand. He's responsible for the section of Wyoming that contains the small town of Saddlestring, where he calls home, and lots of remote backcountry. When Joe relocates to the busier Jackson, he notices that Jackson is full of ultra-wealthy people, and the town has become far more "hippy" than he is used to. The mystery in this book involves the suicide death of the previous game warden-Joe doesn't believe that Will Jensen would take his own life, so what really happened and why does it look like he did? As he begins to uncover the truth about Will's death, Joe is faced with political and environmental issues that have the potential to disturb the local wildlife. He also comes across some unusual local activist activity and becomes caught up with the followers of the good meat movement. Joe thinks both of these things are strange.

2. The relationship between Joe and his wife, Marybeth. I don't like Marybeth under the best of circumstances. I think she's prickly and sometimes a little cold, where Joe really deserves better for how hard he works and how he loves his family. But an extended time spent away from one another puts more strain on their already-sometimes-stressful marriage, and I don't like some of the decisions Marybeth and Joe made. No spoilers, but I wanted to yell at both of them multiple times. I can't believe they didn't work harder to stay connected while they were separated by Joe's job. I'm also perplexed at most of Joe's daughter Sheridan's behavior throughout the entire story, and Marybeth's inability to seem to be able to handle her young daughter.

As usual, the mystery was good, and there were plenty of moving parts that kept me glued to the pages. But I just didn't feel swept away by the nature and the terrain like I normally do when Joe patrols the Big Horn Mountains, and I absolutely hated the tension between Joe and Marybeth.

Even so, Joe is GOOD and his goodness is what makes him interesting. Though flawed, he is one of the most honest ones in law enforcement.

This wasn't my favorite of the series, but I'm sticking around for more and I hope things move a little closer to normal with Joe in the next book. Also, I'm following Joe's 13-year-old daughter Sheridan closely, as well as his friendship with falconer Nate Romanowski.

Audiobook Notes: This may be my very favorite audiobook series and it all comes down to the way that David Chandler narrates these characters. He has the perfect voices for Joe Pickett and Nate Romanowski. This audiobook series has my very highest recommendation.

However...the chapters that are listed in the audiobook do not match the actual chapters of the book. So Chapter One of the audiobook had multiple chapters in it, for example. When I wanted to read some of the book in print and then pick back up with the audiobook later, I had to search for my place in the audio and I don't like that. The previous books in this series haven't been like that, and I'm hoping they go back to the audio chapters matching the actual chapters with the next installment.

I'm a fan of the Joe Pickett series but I found myself struggling with this one.

Some of it was the change in setting. Joe is pulled away from his sleepy part of Wyoming to the millionaire playground that is Jackson Hole. I've been there a couple of times and although the Grand Tetons and Lake Janet are truly spectacular, I didn't like the atmosphere in the town, which seemed like a theme park for the entitled. Joe doesn't like Jackson much either but I still missed being in Saddlestring.

Then there was Joe himself. I usually see Joe as part of his family. This time he's alone and partially estranged from his wife and when I took a good look at him, I saw someone I didn't much like. Apart from a stubborn refusal to let go of a problem even when it brings him into conflict with authority, I barely recognized Joe.

Then there's the shadow of adultery. You'd think that in a book filled with killings, a little adultery wouldn't take centre stage but it does, mainly because Joe is corrosively dishonest about what he wants.

As the book went on, I found there were some plot-based explanations for his aberrant behaviour but not enough to stop me seeing Joe very differently. What I disliked most was the shabby coyness of the will-they-won’t-they-commit-adultery theme. I almost abandoned the book at this point.

There were some good scenes: Nate in the Stockman's Bar, Joe out at the State Cabin confronting an outfitter, but they were the exception.

The plot was more elaborate than in the previous books. It was clever and original. It seemed to me the book lagged a little in the middle but the ending was crisp and tied things up nicely.

I'm hoping the next book takes me back to people and places that I like better than the ones I met in "Out Of Range". ( )

another one of those opportunities for great reading and great listening if you enjoy audiobooks it's a great story and a great performance as well as a great book ( )

I didn't care for this one as much as the prior entries in this series, in part because, both of the plotlines felt a little unfinished. I don't think they needed much added to them but both could have benefited from about 10 more pages a piece to flesh out the details and build to a more satisfying conclusion. That said, I did like the ground work this book laid for potentially exploring the impacts long hours and low pay can have on a marriage in future installments. ( )
