C.J. Box’s new thriller, Breaking Point, has everything his legions of fans have come to expect: well-drawn Wyoming characters, soulless bureaucrats whose meddling does more harm than good, lots of guns and horses, plenty of danger and suspense, a spectacular setting, and a forest fire thrown in for good measure.
As usual, the writing is first rate, his precise prose peppered with occasional poetic descriptions of the landscape that both he and his protagonist, Joe Picket, call home.
Box has been especially productive of late. Breaking Point just came out, and his next novel, The Highway, will be released on July 30.
