The thrilling new Joe Pickett novel from New York
Times bestselling author C. J. Box
Critics called Force of Nature an“amazing”
(Associated Press), “outstanding” (Minneapolis Star
Tribune), “warp speed…showdown between good and evil” (Denver Post).
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 really 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. Download and start listening now!
