Punching Tickets: Book Five in The Mad Mick Series Kindle Edition
In his last mission, Conor Maguire was called back into action by his handler, Ricardo, to go after a man who helped facilitate the terror attacks that devastated America. The intelligence garnered in that operation exposed a network of traitors within the American government—officials who had advance warning of the attacks and did nothing to alert the American people. Worse yet, they sought to take advantage of the situation, seeing it as an opportunity to further their own vision of government.
When Ricardo next pays Conor a visit, it's at the behest of a shadowy collective of patriots determined to purge the government of those who sold out the nation. It should have been a simple mission, a short trip to "punch tickets" in the way that Conor had successfully done hundreds of times around the world.
But nothing in this mission will be simple. Conor and his team find themselves thwarted or compromised at every turn. They're pushed to the edge physically and emotionally. When the dust finally settles, their world will be entirely different, the path ahead more uncertain than ever.
From the Publisher
Survival Thrillers By Franklin Horton
Gritty, unrelenting survival fiction set in a collapsed America, with gut-wrenching conflicts, realistic scenarios, and characters who will burn themselves into your memories.
Three outstanding series set in one fictional world.
The Borrowed World Series
Jim Powell thought the country was due for a reset. He knew it would bring tough times, but he was a prepper and thought he was ready.
He was wrong. Could anyone really be prepared for the chaos, violence, and death that a collapse brings?
Jim will stare down the barrel of a gun just as often as he uses one. He will lose as many people as he saves. Every victory will come at a cost. Even as he helps his friends and family survive, he will struggle with the nagging thought that he is responsible for their suffering because he wanted this to happen.
Despite the hardship, Jim Powell comes to understand that people have to find happiness, humor, and purpose even in the bleakest of worlds in order to retain their humanity and thrive.
The Mad Mick Series
For hardened assassin Conor Maguire and his snarky daughter, Barb, navigating a collapsed America is little more than business as usual. They have food, weapons, top-notch gear, and connections in the darkest corners of the special operations community. Then Barb is kidnapped by a warlord desperate for labor to work his farms.
The kidnappers have no idea whose daughter they've taken. They don't realize that Conor is one of the specialized tools the United States government keeps behind glass and only breaks out when someone needs to die. The kidnappers don't know the fear Conor's code name invokes in the shadowy world of murder and mayhem. But they'll soon realize that when it comes to protecting his family, Conor Maguire is without conscience, without compassion, and without equal.
The Locker Nine Series
A determined young woman and a psychopath living out his favorite video games clash in the apocalyptic aftermath of a nationwide terror attack.
Grace's dad taught her survival, self-defense, and shooting, then sent her away to college hoping she'd never need those skills. All he wanted was to give her a fighting chance if the world fell apart.
Then it did.
Is there a recommended reading order?
These three series take place in the same world and roughly the same geographic region so there are some instances of the storylines overlapping. You can read each series independently, but there some situations where reading them in a particular order adds more depth to the story.
- Mad Mick makes his first appearance in the second Locker Nine book, Grace Under Fire. Reading the Locker Nine Series before Mad Mick gives you more insight into the character.
- Mad Mick encounters some of the folks from the Borrowed World Series in Mad Mick 7, Ultraviolent. The events of this book take place between Borrowed World 8 and Borrowed World 9. Reading Ultraviolent before Resurgent will give you more background information.

I hope Horton, in the unlikely event he would read this, to understand that this drubbing comes from respect for Horton's writing prowess and my affection for Mad Mick, and not from malice or disdain He can do better than this.
whether it be the shell of a man claiming falsely to be our president or his v p with all her family's connections to red China . I will not mention Google's helping the Chinese military and also turning down a request by our Pentagon and so many other monetary alliances our corporations have with the commies.
I’m hoping to see Conor settle the score with the traitors who have helped destroy America in their lust for power and for their greed!
This series is a great read for all in these uncertain times in which we live! We may be heading to these scenarios!
