Uncommon valor in the line of duty and unconditional devotion in the name of love are the salient qualities of the daring men and women who risk it all in the heart-pounding thrillers of New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann. Crafted with precision and power, her characters come alive with a depth of emotion few writers have achieved. Now, with Breaking Point, Brockmann breaks even further through the pack and delivers a stunning payload.

As commander of the nation’s most elite FBI counterterrorism unit, agent Max Bhagat leads by hard-driving example: pushing himself to the limit and beyond, taking no excuses, and putting absolutely nothing ahead of his work. That includes his deep feelings for Gina Vitagliano, the woman who won his admiration and his heart with her courage under fire. But when the shocking news reaches him that Gina has been killed in a terrorist bombing, nothing can keep Max from making a full investigation—and retribution—his top priority.

At the scene of the attack, however, Max gets an even bigger shock. Gina is still very much alive—but facing a fate even worse than death. Along with Molly Anderson, a fellow overseas relief worker, Gina has fallen into the hands of a killer who is bent on using both women to bait a deadly trap. His quarry? Grady Morant, a.k.a. “Jones,” a notorious ex–Special Forces operative turned smuggler who made some very deadly enemies in the jungles of Southeast Asia … and has been running ever since. But with Molly’s life on the line, Jones is willing to forfeit his own to save the woman he loves.

Together with Max’s top agent, Jules Cassidy, as their only backup, the unlikely allies plunge into a global hot zone of violence and corruption to make a deal with the devil. Not even Jones knows which ghosts from his past want him dead. But there’s one thing he’s sure of: there’s very little his bloodthirsty enemies aren’t willing to do.

Count on the intense action and raw honesty Suzanne Brockmann consistently delivers as she goes for broke in Breaking Point—and never looks back.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Suzanne Brockmann’s readers like their action—and their passion—delivered high speed and full throttle. Brockmann more than delivers in this exciting thriller that features a reluctant romance between FBI negotiator Max Bhagat and Gina Vitagliano.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “With undeniable skill, Brockmann delivers an action-packed and breathtaking thriller.”

    RT Book Reviews (4½ stars and an RT Top Pick)

  • “Few authors can weave together multiple romantic threads while keeping each story line taut and fresh, but Brockmann is a master at doing just that…The romance between Jones and Molly, which was established in Out of Control, adds another layer to this already meaty novel and ensures that the book contains enough sizzle to earn it a place on summer reading lists. However, it’s Brockmann’s zesty writing style and skill at creating dynamic, larger-than-life—yet somehow very human—characters that will earn it a permanent place on many readers’ shelves.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Max and Gina take center stage in Brockmann’s latest intricately plotted, adrenaline-rich tale of suspense. With its realistically complex and conflicted characters, intense sexual tension, and edgy humor, this is Brockmann at her best.”

    Booklist

  • “Brockmann’s characters volley badinage like grenades, keeping Breaking Point moving at breakneck speed. Though the outcome is never in doubt, readers will be on the edge of their seats. Recommended.”

    " Great addition to the series. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Pam | 1/26/2014

    " Surprised to find myself skimming many pages, skipping over the inane banter between the two main characters Max (FBI) and Gina (past hostage victim). and I loved Flash Point - based on infiltrating Kazbeckestan. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joanna Shupe | 1/17/2014

    " This is my favorite of the Troubleshooter series. Max and Gina. LOVED this story because Max is such an amazing character. We see him in a lot of the TS books, of course, and you can never get enough! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 1/5/2014

    " Suzanne Brockman's Troubleshooter Series is addictive. Well, only if you're into following a Navy Seal team, hot steamy sex and worldwide adventure as only Navy Seals can. Breaking Point is #9 so if you want to start from the beginning, read "Unsung Hero". There are 15 books in the Series so far and I own most of them. As most authors do, she just gets better as the series progresses. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Writerlibrarian | 1/3/2014

    " This book concludes the Max and Gina arc and wraps up the Molly and Jones story line while giving Jules Cassidy a front and centre position. The next few books will focus on Jules' story arc. This novel was the hardest to finish. The way the story line unfolds with 3 different flashbacks running parallel made me a bit ill. Finally, when all the treads come into one (2/3 of the book) we get a pace, a plot that engages the reader. I'm glad I read it because I've always liked Max and Gina but the book has definite problems. Not my favourite. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christy | 1/2/2014

    " This book was about Jules, Max, Jones, Molly and Gina. Jules and Max are FBI agents, Molly and Gina are doing relief work in Kenya and get kidnapped. Jones AKA Moran is a rogue FBI agent who is wanted by everyone. The girls get caught up in the mess and get kidnapped. Max has to go identify a body that is believed to be Gina. Max has to face how he feels about Gina. Max, Jones and Jules end up teaming up to get the girls back. The story jumps between the past and present and for awhile you realy have to pay attention so you know their background with one another. After that happens it stays in present time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shae | 12/25/2013

    " Yay! I'm finally glad that Max and Gina got their book. This book was a lot different than all of the others. First of all, I don't even think there was a mention of any WWII stuff, and all of the characters were already in love and there wasn't the falling in love story along with it. It was straight up action the entire time. It had my heart pounding. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Carie Mari | 12/18/2013

    " I really wanted to love this book. Again, the plot is fantastic and the writing is great, but Max's resistance to Gina, although moral and wonderful, just struck me the wrong way. This has one star only because of my own personal issues with the plot and not because of a bad plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa Vannoy | 12/1/2013

    " great action - uses the F word tooooooo much! "

    " I waited for this one for a while...but am a little disapointed. Maybe the wait had my expectations too high, love Max and love Gina, also it's nice to see Molly and Jones, it's a good read but not my favorite. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Lauer | 7/24/2011

    " I remembered this as my favorite of the series but it turns out that on a re-read it was too much about the suspense story and not enough about the romance. Yes, they dealt openly with their issues, but I wanted more about them! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 George | 5/20/2011

    " certainly not great literature but an acceptable , yet typical, plot.
    Mystery with little mystery. "

    " I liked this book for the international backdrop. The love story didn't hold me in complete thrall like some of Brockman's other stories, but it was good enough to keep me turning the pages! "
