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.

It's a rare treat to stumble across a good book. It's even better to find out its one of a large series!
I enjoy listening to great detective mysterie & also great thrillers. I enjoy books also by Vince Flynn, David Baldaci including assasins.
Close different friendships.
The way Nate and Joe Picket do help each other but on different sides of the law.
He can bring out their personalities and feelings of each different character.
Watch your back
A great series. I enjoy series and glad when Audible shows them so I can happen upon them.
I found the story to be okay, but nothing that would make me say, "You must read this."
I personally felt that the narrator did an average job but again, nothing above an average rating. I also felt that the voices of some of the characters were unrealistic. He seemed to exaggerate some of their accents.
This was my first C.J. Box book and I found it worth the time to listen to but far from a great read. However, since this was my first Box book, this story was good enough to warrant giving him another listen.
I have not read a print version of a relaxing book in years. No basis for comparison.
Similar to stories with main characters such as Jack Reacher, Sheriff Joanna Brady, Harry Bosch
None in particular. While the descriptions were beautiful, sometimes the descriptions were over done.
When Nate said good-bye to his falcon early in the story.
I am glad that this is part of a series. I will want to read more about Joe and his family. I also wish that Nate was back on the scene. I hope that the characters who were killed in Book 12, don't have significant roles in Books 1 - 11.
Fabulous. I loved it from start to finish. Nate is awesome. I will now have to read the rest of the series. Joe P character is wonderful. Narrator has probably the best voice I have heard. I have listened to a great many good narrators, but David C is now my favorite.
A definite must read!
Newly retired, I am a reading fiend! I like many types of books, both fiction and non-fiction, with the exception of romance and fantasy
I haven't read the previous 11 books in this series, and I don't think it mattered at all. While I didn't know the characters as well as a Box fan would, I also wasn't feeling tired of the storyline like a few reviewers complained about.
Chandler was a very good narrator, in my opinion. He spoke slowly but it didn't detract or annoy me. I think his narration style fit the book just right.
As for the story, sure, it was not totally believable. Had it been, it probably would have been somewhat boring. I don't think I read fiction for it to be completely believable. I really liked the characters. Joe and Nate were developed enough that I felt I knew who they were and what their moral codes were. The falconry storyline was fascinating to me (especially after recently photographing and observing peregrine falcons at my local marsh). It did add to the enjoyment of the story line, IMHO. Additionally, I felt Box was in good control of the story, the ending was satisfactory, and the book was just the right length.
That said, I would certainly read another book in this series!

This book is a cliff hanger, well written, great plot and very entertaining audio book, great presentation, good reader.
Totally addicted to Audible.
This was my first book by this author and I don't think I expected it to be so violent. The plot was far fetched but I was drawn in from the beginning mainly due to the characters.
It is one of my top 10 favorites. C.J. Box truly has a knack for keeping you intrigued.
I love listening to Nate talk. David Chandler gives him real character.
If you have followed the Joe Picket series, you know that Nate Romanowski has always been a shadowy character. We really don't know much about his past or what made him into the recluse that he has become. Will Nate finally reveal the truth that has haunted him for so many years. I couldn't wait to find out.
The best part of the story is that you get to know Nate and what forces shaped him into the man he has become. You admire his skills and his moral sense but you always suspect that he may have had a darker past that may now come out. While Virgil Flowers is a secondary figure in this story, he is still pivital to it's outcome.
Nate of course.
I really enjoyed this book. It kept me wanting to hear more and more as the story unfolded.
This is a great twist to the Virgil Flowers series. You won't be disappointed with the story or the narration.
