New York Times best-selling author C. J. Box delivers a novel starring Joe Pickett’s sidekick: fan favorite Nate Romanowski.
In Force of Nature, trouble comes calling from Nate’s past in the Special Forces, and the colleague he once called a friend won’t stop until those who know a deadly secret are silenced. Everyone close to Nate is at risk, including Joe and his family. To save them, Nate will have to convince law-abiding Joe to finally break a few rules along the way.

This book involves Nate Romanouski (sp) more than any of the other Joe Pickett books and I enjoy the back ground stories of Nate's life. CJ Box captures you with the suspense of "what is Nate going to do next". The interesting points and notes about Falconry, are an unexpected treat. The story line grabs you and doesn't disappoint the devoted CJ Box fan, or the Joe Pickett fan!
Interesting storyline. Compelling listen. Impressive narration. Some details not for the faint of heart. Joe Pickett at his best.
I usually like this narrator, but his corn pone rendering of any character who is supposed to have a southern accent gets under my skin a bit. Otherwise, this was one of the better Joe Pickett novels.
Great storyline and plot. enjoyed learning more about Nate's background. This is a very good series!
I've been waiting for the face off between Nate Romanowski and his enemies . This was bigger than expected . BANG ! BANG !
Start right with there :SPOILER ALERT. 1st i have to say that finally learning so much about Nate was a long time coming and very welcome. BUT when in the parts that dealt with JP there are several flaws.So at 7;38 in to the book when they talk about ALL of us leaving why do they leave Sheridan out of the picture. If you thought your family was being threatened by a ruthless killer why on earth would you not take the one daughter who now lives away at college (where she was easily accessed and might not be missed right away) and who IMHO has the strongest connection to Nate. You can't reach her-call the school and have her tracked down. It makes no sense. Then there is the whole 'language/word" usage by Joe's trainee. Really JP sometimes you are dumber than a box of rocks. Even me who is from Ohio but have family on the east coast caught on to 'soda, venison'. And then there is Joe stuck in the snow smelling carbon monoxide in his truck-hey CJ carbon monoxide is odorless, some people think they smell it but they are smelling exhaust. There was more but honestly there were so many I would shake my head and stop recalling. I think those flaws are what bothered me the most about the story.
But it was so great to get Nate background that I can absolutely recommend the book. As ALWAYS David Chandler is fabulous.
this is first of the Joe Pickett books that i havent given 5 stars in every category
I have enjoyed every book I have listened to by C.J. Box. The narrator captures the characters very well and is enjoyable to listen to. This particular book reveals a lot about Nate.
