I have the opportunity to join with several other bloggers to share with you about the book “Shatter Point” by Jeff Altabef. I would usually write my own synopsis about the book and then give my thoughts, however there is a great synopsis of the book written below. Please read that before you read my thoughts, otherwise you’ll be lost in what I’m saying. I will try not give any main events away but I will say *spoilers* may be posted.
The setting is in the future (2041), the city is New York. This book is intertwined with what I think of as three different stories that all meld together several times throughout the story. We have the doctor who is trying to make a breakthrough in medicine, finding a way to heal the brain after a traumatic event. He is then challenged to save the life of a patient, who happens to be the son of a women, who is being harassed by a rich man, who is secretly invested into the project the doctor is working on.
Are you confused yet? I was at first. This isn’t the typical style or writing I’m use to but once I was able to remember names and remember who was talking when, I was then able to really and fully enjoy this book. The great thing about this book is it moves fast, there is no time to get bored or confused. The author writes in such a way that I couldn’t stop reading. There were nights I would tell myself I’d only read for an hour and the next thing I know it was 4 hours later and 2 AM.
If you enjoy a great suspense novel, I would HIGHLY recommend this book. It will get your heart pumping and have you hoping the craziness will turn out for the good of everyone involved. You won’t want to put this story down till the very end.
Just a small warning, there is death and sexual innuendos in this story, if you’re sensitive to reading these kind of book please don’t pick this one to read.

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.
