Publisher's Summary

In 2035, the southwestern United States is ravaged by drought, reeling from an environmental catastrophe that has left the landscape a chaotic, depleted ruin. California, still viably inhabitable due to its oppressive social controls, marshals state-of-the-art surveillance technology and totalitarian policies to preserve its fragile hold on rapidly dwindling resources and an increasingly unsettled population.

After a prominent California congresswoman is assassinated for her support of the state's secession from the United States, Nathan Fisher - accidental witness to a clandestine military-style operation - is drawn into an unraveling conspiracy that reaches the highest levels of power and threatens the lives of Fisher and his family.

Hunted by ruthless killers seeking to ensure his silence, suspected by the authorities, and aided only by a loyal Marine officer with a mysterious agenda, Fisher and his loved ones must somehow stay a step ahead of their relentless pursuers, navigating a ruined world in a desperate search for sanctuary.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    Story
    "Warning: this novel ends in a cliffhanger"

    The good news is that the second novel in the series will be released in 5 days.

    Fractured State is set in San Diego area of California in the year 2035. Parts of the state have water rationing and most of the state is in poverty brought on by leftist state and local governments. Politicians are being murdered. A state of war exists between those who want to secede from the US and those who want to remain a US state. The novel certainly is action and suspense filled.

    "great story"

    Read (listened) to this all the way through. The story has more twist that a day at the beach. Good story.

    "short changed afain"

    Konkoly seems robe squeezing readers by writing serial books that cost as much as a complete novel. I hate such sleazy money grubbing.
