Book Nook: Long Range, by C.J. Box


C.J. Box returned to the program to talk about his latest book in a long-running crime series that features a protagonist who is a game warden in Wyoming. These books have attracted a significant readership and are routinely best-sellers.

As this story opens someone has just fired a bullet and readers are given the slow motion vantage point of that projectile as it passes over a long distance and eventually (in a couple of seconds) crashes through the window of a home and hits someone.

Who was the sniper who fired that shot ? The intended target, a local judge, had a lot of enemies. Which one was behind this attempt upon his life?

These popular books have lots of action, great scenery, and a likeable, humorous hero.

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public Library,  Clark County Public LibraryDayton Metro Library, and Wright Memorial Public Library.
