Shatter Point: A Gripping Suspense Thriller (A Point Thriller Book 2) Kindle Edition
Some nightmares never end!
“A thriller that grabs readers and doesn’t let go, skillfully twisting, turning, and manipulating its plot for maximum impact.” - D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
When her 19-year-old son Jack miraculously recovers from a serious head trauma, Maggie is sure her luck has changed. But when she's abducted by a shadow from her past - a phantom with dangerous sapphire eyes - it's up to Jack and his younger brother Tom to unravel the mystery and save their mom from a deadly psychological battle.
The brothers seek help from their colorful great aunt, who exposes them to a world of nefarious family secrets, explosive government conspiracies, and a series of horrific murders. Together they must navigate a dark underworld full of political subterfuge and class warfare - before the psychopath who took their mother reaches his shatter point.

The most peculiar group of people come together to catch the serial killer and attempt to change the balance of power between those who have money and those who do not. Tom and Jack become privy to many old secrets as they embark on a journey to find Maggie after her kidnapping. A pistol toting grannie assassin; various members of the higher echelon of society; two prominent citizens from the ghetto; and a host of other characters mesh together in a story about doing the right thing. The past comes full circle as secrets are revealed that help to understand the mind of a narcissistic serial killer. Experimental drugs play a huge part in this story and sadly the element of truth is frightening. I love the way everybody pulled together, forgot differences, and risked their own lives to uncover corruption at the highest levels. Throw in a bunch of folks who have no problem killing and a love story to boot, and the excitement just continued to build page after page. I read well into the early hours of the morning to finish this exciting and action packed work of fiction and I was so surprised the way it ended. I thought I had the bad guy pegged only to find out that I was totally wrong! I hated some characters, loved others, and was blown away by some of their relationships. I loved it and I highly recommend it to every mystery loving reader out there.
The writing in this book is as well paced and captivating as the first book, but since the story continues with the same basic players there is more depth of character. It was nice to see Tom grow and mature, and Aunt Jackie is really a hoot! Young people never think of older people having a life before them. It's fun to listen to the boys as they learn of Jackie's past.
Great story which comes alive and grabs you until the very end. Is there more coming? I certainly hope so.
Darian Beck is working on a new drug that regenerates brain cells. Against his better judgement his boss begins testing on human subjects, even though the drug has killed all the animal test subjects. Jack, the unwitting test subject, finds himself gaining strange new cognitive abilities. Jacks mother, Maggie, has been stalked by a psychopath since she was a little girl. She has been trying to connect him to a number of misdeeds over the years.The setting is the near future in New York, and various mysteries and drama unfold.
Each chapter is bite-sized, following a different character as their lives weave with one another. The large cast still manages to be fleshed out, with a variety of motives and backgrounds. Quite a few characters are unlikable, but they're all interesting nonetheless. It was interesting seeing how their stories connected. It can be a challenge to keep some of the more minor characters in order, but overall its not too tough.
Aside from the characters struggles, there is an overarching plot regarding the experimental drug and big business trying to use it for their own ends vs one character trying to find safe/sane ways to test and use it. I thought the book was a fun ride that hit the ground running from the start. It kept my attention, the writing was detailed yet breezy and kept things moving nicely, and I liked the large cast.
The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat all of that info here. The author did a good job of giving readers an overview of what this story is about and the lengths some people will go to for power. Even though the events in this book were over a short timeline, there are a lot of twists, turns, and surprises written in the storyline. I enjoyed reading this book.
