Media Reviews

"Edgar-finalist Box (Out of Range) expertly evokes Wyoming's landscape, wildlife, people and politics." - Publishers Weekly.
"Despite an encore roster of perps and felonies that plays like a Greatest Hits list from Joe's first five adventures, Box continues to write the sharpest suspensers west of the Pecos." - Kirkus Reviews.
