Présentation de l'éditeur

Joe Pickett's outlaw companion, Nate Romanowski, faces the battle of his life: one he may very likely lose. Nate knows too much about Special Forces Black Ops in Afghanistan - and he must be silenced. Nate's former comrades know the time has come to end the threat once and for all. And they do it by incorporating many of the same tactics that served their unique and secret unit well in the Middle East: recruiting locals. Nate can trust no one except Joe Pickett, who is constrained by his oath and duty to the law and the state. But Nate must involve Joe because he knows his enemy will strike at his friends in order to draw him out. The entire Pickett family will be a target. Nate can only fight back outside the law, and Joe must make a choice: help his friend or keep the peace?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A natural choice for thriller lovers 20 mars 2012
Par NoGoodDeed - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
CJ Box's latest Joe Pickett thriller features Joe's friend Nate Romanowski, the ex-Special Forces soldier and falconer who's helped Joe escape several recent scrapes. In "Force Of Nature" Nate is on the hot seat when he learns that his former commander John Nemecek, now a government big wig, intends to hunt down and eliminate the members of their unit in Afghanistan from years ago, before a shameful and deadly secret gets out. When Nate goes on the run and disappears, ditching his home and most of his possessions, including his falcon, he also leaves three bodies behind, whom he's killed in self-defense. With his prey in the wind, Nemecek targets Nate's friend Joe and his family in order to force Nate out into the open. Meanwhile Joe and his new game warden partner and trainee have been drafted into the murder investigation by Sheriff Kyle McLanahan, with whom Joe has tangled in the past. The action in this book is non-stop, and the conflict between helping Nate and protecting his own family adds an extra level of tension to Joe's problems. Joe Pickett's many fans will naturally want to pick this one up.
Also recommended: A Stranger Lies There - winner of the Malice Domestic Award for best first mystery, it features a vivid desert backdrop that should please fans of CJ Box's colorful Wyoming settings.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A question answered ... finally. 26 mars 2012
Par MED - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Force of Nature is the latest C.J. Box thriller. His stories usually feature Joe Pickett, and while Pickett is present this story is about his enigmatic friend - Nate Romanowski.

Nate has been a presence in the Pickett household for years. But the questions abound - why does he live off the grid? where is he from? what happened to produce the quiet, but lethal man he is?

Force of Nature fills in the back story as Nate is forced to confront the man who made him what he is and face the past. Nate's long love of falconry is front and center to the story and Box laces the history through the story.

Nate's adversary is smart, brutal, violent and without a conscience. Nate's friends, including Joe Pickett and his family, along with friends from the reservation are pulled into the inevitable confrontation.

The storytelling is pure Box - the backdrop of Wyoming and the Northwest provide the perfect backdrop. There is graphic violence, but necessary to the story. The tension builds perfectly.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend." Martin Luther Kind, Jr. 5 avril 2012
Par michael a. draper - Publié sur Amazon.com

C.J. Box has been entertaining his fans with the activities of Wyoming game warden, Joe Pickett, with twelve previous novels.

In the region of the Bighorn Mountains, Joe's friend, Nate Romanowski, learns from a dying friend that Nate's old military group has deployed and is coming after Nate.

Soon afterward, there local men make an unsuccessful attempt on Nate's life. When the bodies of these men are found, in a quiet backwoods area, it stirs a local uproar.

Nate had been a member of a specialized military unit and done some things that he'd rather forget. Unfortunately, the leader of that group now wants to make sure Nate doesn't disclose what he knows.

It is interesting to follow Nate as he travels through the mountain ranges of Wyoming and surrounding areas. It would compare to some of the scenes in "The Last of the Mohicians." We consider if this is one of the few places in America that stands as if was when our forefathers were arriving in America.

Nate and his friend, Joe Pickett, connect paths as we are lead through the phases of this adventurous mystery. In addition, we are given some lessons of life, including the appreciation of loyalty and friendship and see the effects of betrayal.

There were a few loose ends which open the door for future episodes in the series and, although some of the action was predictable, this was an imaginative and enjoyable read.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 After a couple of duds, Box is back 30 mars 2012
Par Badman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Finally, here is a wall to wall great thriller by Box, after a couple of duds. The last two Joe Pickett novels kind of fell apart at the end, building up to exciting climaxes that fell flat. Force of Nature is start to finish an edge of your seat page turner that gets Box back into the familiar territory of the first few books in the series.

One of the best things about the book is that most of the narrative focuses on Joe's survivalist friend Nate Romanowski. Like Robert Crais created his sidekick Joe Pike for his Elvis Cole novels (then spun him off), Box does the same for Nate, except Nate is a more interesting character than Joe Pike (he actually speaks, for one thing). A group related to his activities in special forces begins hunting Nate down, led by one man (his ex-trainer and arch enemy), and the body count starts right in the first chapter as Nate's nemesis is determined to finish off Nate and anyone around him (including Game Warden Joe Pickett and his family).

Taking the focus away from Pickett and his family works well; in my opinion, Joe and his family and their soap opera struggles seem to be getting stale lately (although dumping Joe's idiotic mother in law after the events of the last novel was a great idea, she's a huge bummer anytime she's in one of his books). What frustrates me about Joe's cast and story is that nothing really has changed for him, even after more than a decade and nearly a dozen books: he still gets no respect from law enforcement (despite solving many tough cases), the sheriff (even though he's a different character than the first sheriff) is still an incompetent boob, and his kids are nothing but window dressing. Maybe it is time to move to tell more of Nate's story, since he is starting to become the more interesting character of the duo.

The novel starts with a bang as Nate is attacked by three locals who have been hired by a mysterious stranger (Nate's ex-trainer and military contact), and away we go. Nate roams all over the northwest looking for allies in his struggle, finding only death (those of his friends and those of the people who are tracking him). Unlike the last Pickett novel, there is quite a lot of action here, and unlike the last two novels, there is a great bang-up final encounter that does not disappoint.

As usual in a Joe Pickett novel, you'll figure out the twists and turns before Joe (he has to be one of the dumbest detectives in series history), but the ride there is pretty fun. This novel spends less time on scenes of Joe doing his job as a game warden to concentrate on Nate, but it is interesting to learn about his former life and what drove him to his falconry and his wilderness lifestyle. Not as great as some of the early books, but thrilling enough and filled with some hard core action that has been missing from some of the recent novels, this is a really great return to form by Box.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Box's latest effort is an experience never to be forgotten 28 mars 2012
Par Bookreporter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
C. J. Box is one of those few authors whose work from book to book is reliably brilliant. His primary character, Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett, is a modern-day haphazard, gentle warrior of a sort, whose proneness to error and accident is more than counterbalanced by an overriding sense of decency in goodness in a place where such qualities are viewed more often than not as a weakness. It is Pickett's ability to manifest those qualities as a winning strength that have helped to shoulder these novels to the forefront of the modern western, creating new interest in an established genre that at one time was considered all but finished, while cementing it firmly in the minds of the thriller readership.

Box's fine and beautiful prose manifests an appreciation for the wilds of Wyoming and Colorado that indicates a first-hand experience of the natural wilderness of which he writes. Pickett's prickly relationship with local law enforcement --- with whom he is on the same side of the fence only on paper --- provides a subplot that runs from book to book. However, it is Pickett's relationship with Nate Romanowski, to whom Pickett owes his life and that of his family, that provides the starkest subtext to the series. Romanowski, a former member of a special operations unit, is an isolationist, preferring to be left alone to forage and otherwise live off the land. His sole activity and joy, as we are reminded time and again here, is falconry, a study and practice of which he has few equals.

People and trouble continue to plague Romanowski, however, so that he at least is a person of interest to law enforcement at all levels and at any given moment. It is Romanowski's past that drives the plot of FORCE OF NATURE as a man named Nemecek is pursuing him with bad and deadly intent. He is Romanowski's former mentor and the one human being on earth whose murderous skill set is the superior of Romanowski's. The reason for Nemecek's pursuit of Romanowski lies buried in the not-so-distant past, in a place far removed from the placid beauty of the Wyoming mountains where Romanowski has chosen to live his life in peace if he will only be permitted to do so. That is not going to happen.

Before the tale is told entirely, all that Pickett and Romanowski hold dear will be threatened and, in some cases, irrevocably destroyed, all because of the consequences of an act of greed that, as it turned out, was writ large upon the page of history. Actions have consequences, and, as is pointedly demonstrated here, inaction has its own set of terrible results as well, which resonates forward in time in a dangerous and destructive ripple. What this book is ultimately about, though, is the nobility of friendship between two men, a force that overrides all others for good and otherwise.

FORCE OF NATURE puts paid to some of the issues and plot lines that have been developing over the course of the last few Joe Pickett novels. But there is more than enough left unresolved to cause problems for those who survive its cataclysmic, apocalyptic ending. For those who have never encountered Box's work, his latest effort will be an experience never to be forgotten.
