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.

I have listed to the entire series and found each one more endearing than the last. Love Joe, his family and of course the very cool Nate. My favorite parts are when everything goes "Western" or at least is on the verge of it.
Reading allows me to travel through time, to visit the world's unique and stunning places, to become somebody I am not... It is glorious.
I have enjoyed the Joe Pickett series -- particularly the novels that feature Nate Romanowski. He is by far my favorite character. So, one might expect that this outing would be my favorite of the series because Nate is the star. And I would hope for the same Unfortunately I don't quite get there. Nate is undermined in this book. His secrets are spilled and he seems like just another anti-hero in just another mystery series. He isn't unique in this book, and his uniqueness is what made me love him. I hope Nate reappears in the next book and we discover that there is much more beneath the surface that wasn't spilled all over the pages of Force of Nature.
Myst/thrillers, some contemporary and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
I am very glad to have come across this series. This was my first book by C.J. Box and in the, Joe Picket, series. This book stood on its own and made me want to read more in this series.
Even though the story is set in Wyoming and follows a game warden, it is not anything like the Walt Longmire series. I enjoyed it very much, it was original, informative and had great characters that I'm looking forward to getting to know better.
David Handler did an excellent job with the narration. I have listened to him before but this is his niche, his voice fits Joe Picket perfectly.
I don't know about you, but why are there so so so many 5 star reviews. I LOVE books, but so few are 5 star.
Enjoyable listen, template type mystery. Worth the credit if you like the tough hero type with lots of gun play and bad guys.
I felt it was worth the credit, but not anything outstanding.
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!
