Review – The Future Is Now – Fracture Point by Jeff Altabef @JeffAltabef @novelpublicity
Fracture Point (A Point Thriller Book 1) - Jeff Altabef,Lane Diamond

Fracture Point by Jeff Altabef is not my first foray into his worlds and I can say for a fact that it will not be my last.

 

Fracture Point made me feel as if our future was held be

tween the pages…and it is frightening.

 

The release date is set for June 26, 2017.

 

Cover by D Robert Pease

 

Fracture Point

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

 Let me start by saying, make sure you have no plans…nowhere to go, nothing to do…because once you start reading, Fracture Point will take you down a path that will not let you go until the last word is read.

 

Is this what the future holds for us?

 

Warren Scott, well, he got my attention from the opening chapter and I felt nothing good was going to come from knowing him. He has a secret and he won’t share…yet. There is nothing he won’t do to win and revels in the evil he doles out to anyone who crosses him…or sometimes just because it feels good. Psychopath is too nice a word for him.

 

Jack is working a banquet for the richy rich and was hooking up with one of their wives. He was after info, but got more than he bargained for when he found a flash drive.

 

Once their paths cross, others become involved in the race to save Jack’s life and their own, running at a frenetic pace, making me worry and fret, wondering who will survive.

 

Fracture Point is a frightening glimpse into America’s future…voters rights taken away, the poor are discounted as lesser human beings, and terrorism is used to create fear and manipulate the people. Does any of this ring a bell?

 

They are at a Fracture Point, the point where a spark can set their world ablaze.

 

Fracture Point hits all the buttons for a heart pumping, blood boiling, terrorizing suspense thriller that smacks of realism, with big business and the 1% taking everything and leaving nothing for the 99% struggling to survive.

 

Is this what OUR world is coming to? Will it take a Civil War to wake up the leaders? What happens when the American Dream is dead, there is no hope left and we feel backed into a corner with nothing to lose?

 

CAUTION – Kindle is at risk of being thrown.

 

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of Fracture Point by Jeff Altabef.

GOODREADS BLURB

 

A mysterious scarlet haired jazz singer.


A rebel on a motorcycle.


And a killer with a penchant for torture.

 

Food is scarce, good jobs the rarity, and big brother is watching everyone. Will Jack and Tom’s family be torn apart in the mayhem, and how far will one brother go to save the other’s life?

 

In 2041, America is rife with ghettos and armed checkpoints, and poverty runs rampant.

 

A bloody civil war is brewing, and everyone will be forced to take a side. Education is the only way out of a life where you’re never sure where your next meal will come from, or what you’ll have to do to get it. Tom aced his assessment tests and scored an education contract, giving him a way out of poverty. Jack isn’t so lucky.

 

When Jack, a spy for a rebel fraction, goes missing, only his brother Tom can unravel the mystery of his disappearance. He will risk everything to save his brother from Warren, a killer who enjoys torturing his victims and making them beg for mercy. On a mission, Tom plunges into a world filled with mystery and danger. When he also discovers that his family has been keeping secrets from him—secrets that threaten to doom them all—he doesn’t know whom to trust.

 

Tom must break every rule he’s lived by, and go head-to-head with a psychopath if he’s to have any chance of saving his brother—and just maybe, keep America from reaching the fracture point.

Saturday Shorts – A Psycho Serial Killer @DMHemingway
A Piece of You (Sami Rizzo series Book 3) - D.M. Annechino

I was very excited when I won a signed paperback of A Piece of You by D M Annechino. I love books about psycho serial killers and HE is a doozy. Suspense thrillers are my favorite genre and even the cover tells me this story may hold a piece of my heart. I love jigsaw puzzles and look forward to finding that missing piece.

 

My thanks go out to D M Annechino and IReadBookTours.

MY REVIEW

 

A Piece of You by D M Annechino has all the elements I love, from the bloody cover with the missing piece, to the serial killer running AMOK within the pages. I mean…with a line like this:

He opened his duffle bag and removed a hacksaw, a utility knife and a thick towel. He whisered into her ear as if she was still alive. “I’m so sorry Theresa…All I  want is A Piece of You.”

in the opening pages, I am HOOKED.

 

Sometimes when the justice system lets them down, a vigilante thinks it is up to them to right the wrong. HE is making a horrific statement and feels he has nothing to lose. I feel so bad for HIM, but no matter how I twist it, this cannot end well for him and rightly so.

 

A Piece of You also tells Sami’s story. Have you ever wondered how big someone’s heart can be? When it comes to Sami, the answer is HUGE! . I could not do what she does and I love her for it.

 

Sami is a tough and righteous homicide detective that will not be swayed from doing the right thing. For some reason, serial killers have become her specialty.

 

A Piece of You is the third book in the Sami Rizzo Thriller series, but reading out of order didn’t affect my enjoyment. The blanks are filled in and it only makes me want to go back and read what I missed.

 

I know the story and writing is fantastic, when it makes me fall in love with the villain, feeling his anguish, but knowing no matter what he does, his actions are futile and the price he will pay is high and I cannot stop reading, wondering how it will end.

 

I want more of Sami Rizzo’s and D M Annechino’s stories and I want them now.

GOODREADS BLURB

 

Homicide Detective Sami Rizzo is at it again! She never dreamed “America’s Finest City,” would be tormented by yet another serial killer, but for the third time in the last five years a depraved maniac is stalking the streets of San Diego. Based on her qualifications and prior successes dealing with multiple murders, who else would Captain Davison assign to head the investigation? Different from Sami’s past experiences, this fanatic is like no other. His methods of killing defy everything profilers think they know about serial killers. As an intense investigation begins and bits and pieces of evidence emerge, no one can understand his motivation. He’s merciful, yet brutal. And just to make things even more confusing, all of his victims are blood-related. Is he settling a vendetta? Did he randomly pick a name out of the phone book and begin a rampage? Or is there a deeper story? Based on very little evidence and a lot of gut instincts, Detective Rizzo pieces together a complex puzzle and narrows the field of possible suspects. She learns that the killings may connect in some way to powerful people within the judicial system and doesn’t know who to trust. Ultimately, she comes face to face with the killer for a battle of brain and brawn. Can she outwit the shrewd killer, or will she be his next victim?

The Raping of Ava DeSantis
The Raping of Ava DeSantis: A Horror Novel - Mylo Carbia

Set in 1991 in Atlanta, Georgia, The Raping of Ava DeSantis tells the story of a working class college student who is brutally attacked by three wealthy fraternity brothers, then confronted with the decision of a lifetime: accept money to stay quiet or seek justice with the police. What she does in response is the basis of this captivating woman’s revenge horror-thriller that will have readers talking for years to come.

 

First of all I'd like to say a big thank you to Dark Places for kindly sending me this book. Thankyou!

 

This is a book that really Didn't know where to come at from giving this review. It made me angry at first. Reason being is there is no way a woman could write about such a shocking subject as Rape and not even consider to research it before she did. And I was shocked at the way she wrote the father's reaction to Ava after the rape.

 

My personal feeling's aside, as this was the only issue I had. I carried on with this book. The plot was full on with a Vigilante Justice, poor vs Rich style. The book is graphic with plenty of sex and violence. The story behind that and the way it is played out is worth a read. I didn't expect the ending to be as it was at all.And it blew me away. Mylo Carbia is claimed to be the queen of horror in this book. Personally, I would say queen of shock's! I don't think i'm ever going look at a gravy blaster the same again! :P

Reading progress update: I've read 65%.
Black Walnut (Vigilante Justice Series) - Greg Strandberg

A gunshot went through this chick and literally tore off her tits, which landed on a desk, still in their bra and blouse.  

 

I... am highly amused.
