Franklin Horton’s “Compound Fracture”
I finally took the opportunity to listen to Franklin Horton’s new book “Compound Fracture”. I have read or listened to all of Franklin’s books and this one does not disappoint.
All of Franklin Horton’s books take place in the same time frame. His original work was The “Borrowed World” series, there are currently 6 in that series and according to his Facebook Reader page book 7 is in the works.
“Compound Fracture” is the third book in the “Locker 9” series. The main premise behind the “Locker 9” Series is that the Primary character Robert Hardwick set up a locker for his daughter “Grace” in the same area she is attending college. Robert is a Post Apocalyptic fiction writer and because of his writing and fans he was able to create a network of people to help Grace get home in the event of something catastrophic happening. I recently mentioned “Locker 9” in my Caching episode.
So as to not give too much away I won’t go into detail about the book itself since I am afraid to give away too many spoilers. Also it is hard to write too much since without getting into detail on the other two books there would be little context.
I contacted Franklin and asked permission to play the sample from the Audible page. He graciously said yes.
This is the publishers Summary of “Compound Fracture”:
The long-awaited third installment in a series that has become a classic in family preparedness.
When Robert Hardwick’s daughter, Grace, was struggling to reach home because the nation was collapsing, he couldn’t wait. He went after her, finally finding her at one of the safe houses he’d arranged along her route home, a friend’s survival compound in the mountains of northern Georgia.
A chance encounter at the compound gave Grace the opportunity to hitch a ride home in a chopper while Robert chose to wait for an injured friend to heal up. Before he could begin his own journey home, the compound came under siege from a corrupt congressman and his private army, determined to take the property for themselves.
In a bid to save the compound and reach his family, Robert comes up with a bold and dangerous plan that just might deter the invading army, if it doesn’t get him killed first.
