An untrained spy and a rebel faction. A mysterious scarlet-haired jazz singer. Dangerous secrets guarded by a devious killer. What could possibly go wrong? Only everything.
Tom's brilliant, but when it comes to people smarts, he's clueless. When his older brother disappears, Tom opens the door to adventure and terror—and a beautiful red-haired spy. She stands in the doorway and spins a tale so unbelievable it just might be true. What if his carefree brother is not just a tennis instructor, but a spy who has uncovered a secret so explosive it could trigger a bloody revolution?
Tom will do whatever it takes to get his brother back, even if he's completely unprepared for what happens next. He'll need the help of would-be friends and foes, and a whole lot of luck, to outwit the psychopathic killer holding his brother hostage. And maybe, just maybe, he can rescue his brother and keep America from reaching the fracture point, too.
US Review of Books gives it 5 STARS: "Mixing science fiction, action, and suspense, this story imagines a future that isn't quite dystopian. The disparity between the haves and the have-nots, and the prevalence of popular reality television shows makes the setting more like a logical progression of the modern day. ... Imaginative and gripping, this book tells a story that blends the familiar and the fantastical."
Midwest Book Reviews says: "Fracture Point's exquisitely drawn characters keep readers involved and immersed in the plot, even though there are a lot of them - and a lot of special interests involved. Under another hand the story line could have become confusing; but Altabef takes the time needed to create characters who are believable and whose motivations and actions are compelling against the backdrop of a bigger story, and this approach drives a thriller that proves hard to put down."
