Fracture is told from Delaney’s perspective, and if you’ve read the first two chapters, you know that she falls through the ice in chapter one, and she wakes up 6 days later. And what happens in between—well, that’s Decker’s story.
This is the story of those eleven minutes, and the six days that follow, from his perspective. Because while it must be terrifying to be trapped under the ice, it’s a different kind of terror seeing your best friend trapped…
Especially if it’s your fault.

This free (as long as you tweet or make a Facebook post about it) short story tells shows us just what those never-ending eleven minutes were like for Dexter and for those six days at the hospital where they weren’t sure whether Delaney would survive or not. And what state she’d be in if she did.
Dexter’s pain and despair are fully evident as is the love he has for his best friend, he dragged her out of the ice, and he’ll drag her back to life if he has to.
If you’ve read the Fracture and want to meet Dexter and Delaney again, or what to try out Megan Miranda’s writing before buying Fracture, then I heartily recommend posting your tweet and downloading it. There are no spoilers within it, but it will certainly add to the experience of reading Fracture.
