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.

Best mystery series ever----great performance of t

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!!!!

Wild west adventure, starring Nate the Great!

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.

Box and Chandler, one of my fav pairs on audible.

What made the experience of listening to Force of Nature the most enjoyable?

I finished this book in 3 days. It's excellent. If only Mr Box could crank these out More often! <br/>This one kept me on the edge of my seat more than any other Pickett book.

Great book

Would you consider the audio edition of Force of Nature to be better than the print version?

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.

What did you like best about this story?

I love the setting (western mountains and wilderness) and the action was non-stop.

Stop and question your associations

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

Captivating

Where does Force of Nature rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is one of my top 10 favorites. C.J. Box truly has a knack for keeping you intrigued.

What did you like best about this story?

Shock factor!

Have you listened to any of David Chandler’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I love listening to Nate talk. David Chandler gives him real character.

Same ole Story

Would you try another book from C. J. Box and/or David Chandler?

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.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

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.

Could you see Force of Nature being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Just pick a star............they are interchangable....

This Review Needs A Title...So, I Gave it One

&quot;Force of Nature&quot;, a Joe Pickett novel from author CJ Box, finally gives us the back story on series regular Nate Romanowski.. Sheriff McClanahan is back as only politically motivated taking credit for the good events and trying to blame Joe for everything bad. Bravo, great story!
