C.J. Box and Lisa C. Team Up For Another TC Event

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

Breaking Point 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.

Lisa says:
"I'm a big fan of C.J. Box's novels. I love his Joe Pickett mystery series because the books always take off from page one. Breaking Point, like his others, deals with timely, ripped-from-the-headlines topics involving the EPA and other Big-Brother-is-watching themes. Joe not only finds himself in the middle of double homicide, he has a new boss bent on changing his job, and the Feds demanding his help. I like reading Joe Pickett mysteries because Box does a great job of making readers feel connected to Joe and his family, the town and its residents. I don't want to talk about the plot too much, but I will say, I read the book in a day. At one point the TV news was on in my house. I was right in the middle of reading the exciting wilderness chase, when I heard the TV reporter talk about how the US government has a new tool it can use in the American skies. I continued reading and, on the next page, that tool made a violent appearance in Breaking Point. C.J. Box does his homework!"
