Description

The thrilling new Joe Pickett novel from the New York Times–bestselling author.

Critics called Force of Nature an“amazing” (Associated Press), “outstanding” (Minneapolis Star Tribune), “warp speed . . . showdown between good and evil” (The Denver Post). “This is the best Box I’ve ever read, and I’ve read them all” (Library Journal).

Breaking Point, however, takes Joe Pickett into uncharted territory. The question is: What will he do when he gets there?

It was always good to see Butch Roberson, Joe thought—a hardworking, upright local business owner whose daughter was friends with his own. Little did he know that when he talked to Butch that day in the forest, the man was about to disappear. He was heading into the mountains to scout elk, he said, but instead he was running. Two EPA employees had just been murdered, and all signs pointed to him as the killer.

As the manhunt organized itself, Joe heard more of the story—about the tract of land Butch and his wife had bought to build their retirement home on, until the EPA declared it a wetland. About the penalties they charged him when he balked, new ones piling up every day, until the family was torn apart . . . and finally, it seems, the man just cracked.

It was an awful story. But was it the whole story? The more Joe looks into it, the more he begins to wonder—and the more he finds himself in the middle of a war he never expected and never wanted. Powerful forces want Roberson not just caught but dead—and the same goes for anyone who stands in their way.

Every man reaches his breaking point. Joe Pickett may just have reached his.

    An amazing read. Great characters, plot and story. Reminded me of a wonderful road trip we took to to the beautiful state of Wyoming. Can't wait to read another C. J. Fox book. GSW+

    CJ, please take us along with Picket till he retires as Wyatt Earp did, in his eighties. All your books are excellent, but the Picket series has what few others have: humanity, with a real believable honest to goodness characters capable of screwing up and still come up dandy. You're the Kent Krueger of your writing world.

    I've been a fan of C. J. Box's work for a long time and I'm happy to say that his character development of Joe Pickett has matured. Initially Joe appeared to be kind of a bumbling wimp - no more. I highly recommend his books.

    This was the first book I've read by C.J. Box. I quickly got into the story and became riveted with the characters. The author was very descriptive in his writing so it was easy for me to see in my head what he conveyed. This book kept my attention and I did't want to put it down. It also had twists and turns and some I didn't see coming. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading well written, exciting books! I am now a fan of C.J. Box!!!

    Breaking Point, the latest Joe Pickett novel by C.J. Box, has the twists and turns we have come to expect from the author. Set in the wilderness of Wyoming the adventures of an under paid over worked game warden, his family and their lives continues in this story with murder, intrigue, and abuse of government power. Mr. Box has done it again, a page turner that will keep you guessing until the very end with colorful characters old and new!
