Press Release

The St. Louis County Library Foundation is pleased to present acclaimed crime fiction author C.J. Box for a discussion and signing of his latest thriller “Breaking Point” on Monday, March 18, at 7:00 p.m. at Library Headquarters, 1640 S. Lindbergh Blvd.
The program is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase at the event from Barnes & Noble.
Critics called C.J. Box’s 2012 New York Times bestseller “Force of Nature” an “amazing” (Associated Press), “outstanding” (Minneapolis Star Tribune), “warp speed… showdown between good and evil” (The Denver Post). “This is the best Box I’ve ever read, and I’ve read them all” (Library Journal).

“Breaking Point,” however, takes Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett into uncharted territory. The question is: What will he do when he gets there?
When a family friend is accused of murdering two EPA employees over a tract of protected wetland, Joe begins to look into the case and finds himself in the middle of a war he never expected and never wanted. Powerful forces want the accused not just caught, but dead...and the same goes for anyone who stands in their way.
C. J. Box is the New York Times bestselling author of 15 novels, including 12 in the critically acclaimed mystery series about Joe Pickett. Box won the Edgar Alan Poe Award for Best Novel in 2009 with “Blue Heaven,” and he has also won the Anthony Award, Prix Calibre 38 (France), the Macavity Award, the Gumshoe Award, the Barry Award, and the 2010 Mountains & Plains Independent Booksellers Award for Fiction. His books have been translated into 25 languages, and both “Blue Heaven” and “Nowhere to Run” have been optioned for films.
