Summary
Joe Pickett investigates the disappearance of a local businessman, who recently had his intended retirement property declared wetlands and is suspected in the murder of two EPA employees.

Reviews and Notes

Summary/Annotation ->  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. .
