Really enjoy this author. I read this book twice and was totally entertained both times

Wyoming park ranger Joe Pickett is the hero of this series that reads like a legal/cop mystery. If you like Longmire, you will love this book. It's part honorable lawman, part unpredictable wilderness. --Jami

"Breaking Point" by C.J. Box was a pretty good thriller and adventure story but not such a great mystery. Game Warden Joe Pickett is the sleuth but he doesn't really do much sleuthing. In the story, an aquitance of Pickett's is being hunted down by Pickett in the wilderness for a double murder. Bad things happen. Adventures are had. And the bad guy is captured. However the story is marred by a 'political' subplot I wasn't really attuned to as I'm not American. After the story had ended and the acknowledgments made, the author includes a table without comment listing the amount of federally owned land in various states. A point is being made in this table and in this story but I don't really get that point. Good story though.

I love this series. They never disappoint me. This one was especially good and was hard to stop reading.

As if this wasn't one of the very best books I've read in a long time - break neck pacing, non-stop action throughout & a very realistic story line - I finish the book on the edge of my seat, read the first line of the "about the author" page & find that this book was based on a TRUE STORY!!! Bravo!!!

Excellent! I am used to reading mysteries located in urban areas where the protagonist is a cop or private eye, so it was refreshing to read about a game warden working in the forests and mountains of Wyoming. There were many twists and turns which kept me guessing - and turning the pages. Inspired by a true story, the novel has a libertarian bent which I appreciated and enjoyed. This is the first book that I have read by Box, and I plan to read other books in the Joe Pickett series.

The whole Joe Pickett series is excellent, though this book is a bit extreme. As usual, the plot is great and the pace is fast. This book is hard to put down.

Terrific writing about forest fire experience. Wyoming environment is unforgiving but I enjoy reading about it as long as I don't have to live there ! Like Joe Pickett's character and the author's development of Joe through his interactions with the people in his life.
