Clare consistently delivers! Breaking Point is packed with gut-wrenching tension, tragedy, romance and passion. The characters are riveting and the story of Mexican drug lords, journalists fighting for the truth and marshals seeking justice is timely and effective.

After surviving the loss of her fiancé and family in Hurricane Katrina and an attempt on her life, investigative journalist Natalie Benoit has rebuilt her life and career in Denver. In Mexico for a convention, Natalie is kidnapped and held for a drug lord. The broken whispers of another captive, Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal Zach McBride, give her the strength and courage to fight and they escape. Together, Zach and Natalie race across the land chased by a vengeful drug lord who has a single mission — to kill Natalie. (BERKLEY, May, 384 pp., $7.99)

Breaking Point

Submitted by Robin in PA on August 5, 2012 - 6:04pm.

U.S. Marshall Zach McBride has endured a week of torture at the hands of a Mexican Drug Cartel called Los Zetas. Now they have captured journalist Natalie Benoit and put her in the cell next to Zach. Natalie is a voice in the darkness that gives him the strength to live another day. With her help, they break out of their prison and make a break of the U.S. Border. They must elude the drug cartel who wants them dead and cross the desert to safety.

I absolutely could not put this book down. It's the fifth book in Clare's I-Team series and the best so far. The story contains three of my favorite elements...a tortured hero, a couple on the run, and a hot romance. I also like that we have an usual setting at the U.S./Mexican border. And, we also see past characters play significant roles in this book which made the story even more interesting. My rating: 5 Stars.
