About the Book - About the Author - Prizes!!!


About the book:  
     Maggie met Cooper at a young age, but even then she sensed something was wrong with him. His charm, good looks, and wealth could not hide the danger that burned in his sapphire eyes. Some nightmares don’t go away. He’d been haunting her from a distance for as long as she could remember. Now things have changed. When her sons Jack and Tom discover she’s been taken, they set out to rescue her and uncover nefarious family secrets, explosive government conspiracies, and a series of horrific murders along the way. Only their colorful great aunt and a covert resistance group can help them navigate the dark underworld full of political subterfuge and class warfare. All the while, Maggie struggles to outwit her tormentor in a life and death psychological battle of tense desperation. Will Jack and Tom arrive before Cooper reaches his shatter point?Get Shatter Point through Amazon or Barnes & Noble.  

 My Review:
     When I was approached to read and review this book for a Novel Publicity tour I didn't hesitate. Not only is this psychological thriller one of my favorite genres, it's published by Evolved Publishing...which has NEVER let me down. I have only known them to publish high quality work so I had already planned on reading this one. It definitely did not disappoint! The book is very fast paced, so much so that the first few chapters confused me. Once I started to catch on, I couldn't stop. While set in the future, it didn't have a futuristic feel to it for me, which is a plus in my book. This book kept me thinking up until the very end. I highly recommend this to anyone that's a fan of psychological thrillers, action, drama, or even the horror genre. I'm very much looking forward to the next book he writes.
