New York Times best-selling author C.J. Box stops off in Houston to sign copies of his latest thriller, Breaking Point. This is the 13th installment in Box's Joe Pickett series. In Breaking Point, Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett is after his friend Butch Roberson, who's on the run after two EPA employees have been murdered. Pickett discovers that Roberson's life had been turned upside down after the land he and his wife bought to build a new home on was declared a wetland, making it unsuitable for building. Roberson had fought the ruling, but the EPA fines kept building up until finally the family was torn apart. Pickett doesn't think he's got the whole story, and as he investigates, he finds that there are those who want Roberson dead…and they're willing to kill anyone who tries to help him, including Pickett.
