Publisher's Summary

The recipient of Edgar, Anthony, and Macavity Awards, New York Times best-selling author C. J. Box has won almost every honor in his field. In Breaking Point, Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett is glad to catch up with old friend Lyle Pendergast, but then the man goes missing and is named a suspect in the death of two EPA employees. All signs point to Lyle’s guilt, but the more Joe digs into the case, the more he realizes he’s stepped into the middle of a deadly power play.

    "Very dissapointed"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Just too much Hollywood type hype here. In good conscience I cannot recommend this listen.


    Has Breaking Point turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I thought I might enjoy the listen as I am an outdoor person.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of David Chandler?

    Chandler could have brushed up on his pronounciation a bit more.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Breaking Point?

    Story line wasn't bad, just presented in an unrealistic tone.

    I love the depiction of wilderness; puts the reader right there. Unexpected ending spurs me to next book as usual

    "The best Joe Pickett book"

    I've listened to several Joe Pickett books, all of them very good to great, but this one is the best! Also, I wasn't familiar with the series and therefore listed to the most recent book first. I loved the characters, setting and story. I worried however that my enjoyment of the previous books would be diminished since I started with the most recent. I have not found this to be the case. I've enjoyed all of them, and didn't listen in any particular order.

    "A Thriller to the end"

    This book didn't disappoint. It terrified at times. The only complaint I ever have about CJ Box is the language his Characters use, but the story drives you on, no matter what. Love Joe Pickett-He is someone to admire!!

    "Probably the best of the series"

    Very well written and narrated. The story was focused and didn't have too many story lines.

    "Disappointing"

    We listened to the first book, and jumped to this one because we'd bought it awhile back on sale. I so want to love this author, but probably won't buy another book unless on sale. The problems:
    1) Box needs a good editor. An editor should have caught the amazing number of times Pickett grunts, and the intense repetition of certain areas over and over and over again.
    2) In the first book we excused it, but this time I have to say it. I don't get the marriage. Perhaps Box isn't married and so doesn't have a grasp on what a good wife does or doesn't do? One minute the she's snarkie, next minute cares, next minute after an unbelievable disaster (which would make any wife ask about that first -- unless she is divorcing the arse) she bitches that he doesn't ask her how she is?
    3) Joe also comes off stupid, dim-witted, then bright -- and this is not a complex character. He should be salt-of-the-earth.
    4) Animal gore for no apparent reason.
    5) He totally does not get kids, either doesn't have them or doesn't know them. He turns Joe, who is portrayed as a pretty good father, into an idiot with one child cahracter, out of character. He doesn't care so much that this child's life is not going to be okay. It is crucial in this book, and what he does is mess up a kid totally.
