"An exceptionally well-told story that will entertain, thrill, and maybe even outrage its readers."
- USA TO DAY

Joe Pickett always liked Butch Roberson - a hard-working local business owner whose daughter is friends with his own.  Little does he know that when Butch says he is heading into the mountains to scout elk, he is actually going on the run.

Two EPA employees have been murdered, and all signs point to Butch as the killer.  Soon, Joe hears of the land Butch and his wife had bought to retire on - until they are told the EPA declared it a wetland - and the penalties the agency charged Butch until the family was torn apart.  Finally, it seems, the man just cracked.

It's an awful story.  But is it the whole story?  The more Joe investigates, the more he begins to wonder - and the more he finds himself in the middle of a war in which he must choose sides.

"Fans of this series will burn through the pages...  Another must-read."

Breaking Point
A Joe Pickett Novel

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.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
