For those of you unfamiliar with the series, Wyoming Game Warden Joe Pickett has great love for his family, passion for his calling, and an integrity and honesty that shine through in the toughest situations. Through each of Wyoming author Box's novels, Joe Pickett, his friends and family have grown in the hearts and minds of his readers, till they've come to life on the page. You probably don't have to start at the beginning as each of his novels is a standout story all on its own, but I would, so you can get to know and love each character the way that I have.
Breaking Point (Joe Pickett #13)
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 by debt . . . 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 Butch not just caught, but dead . . . and the same goes for anyone who stands in their way.
I need 6 stars here. C.J. Box is just phenomenal, and this latest Joe Pickett is the best yet. Loved it!
C.J. Box has also written several novels that are not part of the Joe Pickett series, and they are great as well.
