The thrilling new Joe Pickett novel from the New York Timesâ€“bestselling author. Critics called Force of Nature anâ€śamazingâ€ť (Associated Press), â€śoutstandingâ€ť (Minneapolis Star Tribune), â€śwarp speed . . . showdown between good and evilâ€ť (The Denver Post). â€śThis is the best Box Iâ€™ve ever read, and Iâ€™ve read them allâ€ť (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 thoughtâ€”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 storyâ€”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 apartÂ .Â .Â . 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 wonderâ€”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 deadâ€”and the same goes for anyone who stands in their way. Every man reaches his breaking point. Joe Pickett may just have reached his.
