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.

If you're a fan of the Joe Pickett novels, this is the book you've been wanting and waiting to read since the first couple of books in this series. Finally, learn what Nate's big secret is all about. It was worth the wait, and now I'm even more intrigues by Nate, who lives to seek a 'pure but self designated' justice, and his good friend, Wyoming Game Warden, Joe Picket, who seeks justice through honor, loyalty, and the law.
Box writes his characters so realistically that they feel like good friends. His writes great characterizations while tackling interesting and relevant issues of the day. This is so much so that the real non-fiction book referred to in this novel is now on my to-read list!! Great writing plus a great story is a combination that can't be beat! Bring on the next in the series!!!!
Love a good mystery, but don't care much for pure thrillers.
OK, so Nate Romanowski is not the adult version of the child detective, and this is once again more of an adventure than a mystery! Nate is somewhat like a comic book superhero, but I liked the story nevertheless. The underlying motive for his adversary isn't revealed until rather late in the book, and the involvement of Joe Pickett and his family is somewhat peripheral and secondary. The narration was great, as usual, and the descriptions of the scenery and wildlife in Wyoming and nearby states are wonderful, as always. A good story.
I finished this book in 3 days. It's excellent. If only Mr Box could crank these out More often!
This one kept me on the edge of my seat more than any other Pickett book.
I loved this as an audiobook because listening to the book made me slow down and savor all the beautiful descriptions of the mountains, wilderness, weather, etc. It makes you feel like you are right there. When reading a print book I sometimes read too fast and skim over the descriptions.
I love the setting (western mountains and wilderness) and the action was non-stop.
Who are the real bad guys
Nate tries to rectify his past forever
His latest in the Joe Pickett seires is really great!
Enjoy a good book as much as the next person but I am a true LOVER of a great Western by Louis L'Amour !
One of the best it's all about Nate. One of the best yet. Really hooked on CJ Box.
The past often returns to haunt your existence and creates headaches for your current friends. This book shows just how blood thirsty people can be, and how some probably don't figure there are consequences to theor actions past or present. Again CJ Box comes with a new twist on villains and retribution .
Well worth the credit
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.
Yes I have enjoyed all of the Joe Pickett books, but if they continue with the same storyline as this book I will probably stop reading C J Box.
Nate has been sold out in order to make him fit the mold of sex for the sake of sex you find in most books. He use to have a code he lived up to ,but now he is just like everyone else BORING . I am so disappointed with the direction this story line took.
Just pick a star............they are interchangable....
Finally, the scoop on Nate! Still love Joe and Family, but am so moved by people's lives on the " res," by Joe's love of family and his friend Nate, by plausible possibilities and I'll stop before a spoiler slips out.
