Down Range

Morrow. (Garrett Kohl, Bk. 1). Aug. 2021. 352p. ISBN 9780063066502. $27.99. THRILLER
DEBUT Moore’s debut action-thriller delivers both a compelling story and a vivid portrait of the landscape of the High Plains of Texas. Garrett Kohl works as an undercover DEA agent. After a mission goes awry in Afghanistan, he receives orders to protect a witness to the tragic events, which requires a trip home to northwest Texas to see his family. Garrett’s relatives seem distant when he arrives. Instead of receiving a warm welcome from the community, he discovers that a war of a different kind has trapped his family in a seemingly impossible situation. Garrett will have to use all of his skills to save his family from a diabolical enemy who knows the landscape as well as he does, but fighting against the odds is one of this Green Beret’s strengths.
VERDICT Moore has written a tense and irresistible thriller that fans of C. J. Box and the military action novels of Brad Taylor will savor. The chaos mixes well with a stellar panorama of Texas. Readers will happily look forward to the next installment in what looks to be a series featuring Garrett Kohl and his family’s ranch life.
