5.0 out of 5 starsReally Good
Reviewed in the United States on June 24, 2017
This story takes place in a future United States. It is told by several people: Warren, a deviant hitman; Jack, an undercover rebel; and Jack's brother Tom, who is worried about his brother. The story really picks up speed after the introductions and becomes a well-paced, well-written story that keeps you turning the pages. The intrigue and twists and turns keep you wondering what will happen next, and you get involved with the characters so that you love and hate them. The dystopian world is so realistic it scares you, yet it also makes you think deeply about it. I found this to be a really good story with excellent writing. I'm looking forward to the next story by Jeff Altabef.
This is a future political novel with lots of action, intrigue, and twists. Identifying which bad guys are the worst and who are the real good guys is delicate and makes this story complex and interesting. This is a bleak world in its own right. This is the first story I have read by Jeff Altabef and it will not be the last. It is well written and edited. I found very few error of which none interfered with reading. However, the true horror of the story is that society could be true with some of the policies and agendas that our leaders are pursuing today. Read for yourself to see if this is or is not true.
5.0 out of 5 starsAction, Action, And More Action!

I was hooked from the start – what a ride! Set in the year 2041, after various economic and environmental disasters, corporations basically run what’s left of the country. Where there are oppressive and tyrannical entities, there will also be rebellions. The action is basically non-stop. Many times I was mumbling under my breath, rooting for various characters and cheering if/when a bad guy got trounced or taken down a notch. I highly recommend this book.
4.0 out of 5 starsAltabef does a good job in getting you caught up in the story so that you get caught up in the runaway train that the story is

My second read from author Jeff Altabef in the last 3 days, the first one was the short story ENEMIES OF THE STATE and was so good I had to come back for more! Altabef does a good job in getting you so caught up in the story that you get caught up in the runaway train that the story is. I really liked it and look forward to his next book
The fast-paced action keeps you turning pages. The first hundred flew by in no time! Detailed characters keep the action flowing between the good guys and the ones your want to stab in the back of their heads with an icepick.
Fracture Point is about a futuristic time in the United States. This book starts out from Warren's point of view, and Warren is a hit man who kills people and really enjoys it if he gets to torture them just right. Then it goes to Jack, who is just turned 18, and working at the club as an assistant tennis instructor, but he worked as a waiter for special events when needed. Jack was working an even that was a fundraiser for Founding Fathers' Brain Cancer Research, which is an extremely aggressive form of brain cancer that had been diagnosed ten years earlier and becoming more and more common. While the government said that one in seven people were at risk, but in Jack's neighborhood it was more like one in four. But the job at the club was really just a cover, since Jack's second job was working for a rebel group and he was to obtain some secret's for the rebel group.
The book goes back and forth with the view, from the bad guy Warren and Jack, until Tom,Jack's younger brother, decided something might have happened to Jack and goes to look for him. And then some is from his point of view as well. The development of the characters along with the setting, mean that the story has a somewhat slow start while everything is being set up. The story really becomes more steady and well paced after the development and setting are set up. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys futuristic stories, or spy stories.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book
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.
