FRACTURED ...

A decade ago Dr. Mark Thurman took care of John Bristow and his DEVGRU teammates when he was on active duty assigned as their orthopedic surgeon. Now he’s in civilian practice and this morning Bristow was admitted to his trauma center. Thurman and his research partner, stem-cell biologist Claire Hodgson, decide to attempt a miracle and reconstruct his shattered leg using their latest discovery. Thurman soon realizes his patient is more than a retired Navy SEAL with a fortune of natural gas saturating his farmland. Bristow’s hiding something and the killers are coming back to finish the job. To succeed Thurman will have to outwit a KGB-trained assassin plus an energy company desperate for revenue. All he wanted to do was heal his patient and advance medical research--it won’t be that easy. These days, for Thurman, survival seems like a long shot.

HYPERION'S FRACTURE ...

Tragedy strikes America's darling three-year-old Thoroughbred, Hyperion, when he's injured in a Kentucky Derby qualifying race. Drs. Mark Thurman and Claire Hodgson are asked to treat his broken limb using their revolutionary fracture-healing methods, but when other experimental subjects begin developing life-threatening complications, the rescue project is jeopardized. Then a serendipitous discovery suggests a miraculous new drug made from a rare plant source may cure the problem. Claire travels to a remote jungle laboratory where she meets with Meera Jindal, the woman who made the breakthrough. When the formula is stolen and the two scientists vanish, Mark calls on his friend, John Bristow, who assembles an elite team of ex-Special Forces operators that race to pick up their trail. A rogue pharmaceutical CEO and a cartel drug lord aim to stop them and make sure Hyperion never races again.
