Poison Town by Creston Mapes

This week, the

is introducing

David C. Cook (February 1, 2014)



Creston has fond memories of his boyhood in Bath, Ohio, where he became enchanted with his future wife, way back in the fourth grade. His father, Bernie, owned and operated The Weathervane Furniture Shop in town. The whole family lived right upstairs in the century-old house known as "The Shop."

Creston studied journalism at Bowling Green State University, then began his writing career. During the past 30 years, he has worked as a reporter, corporate copywriter, creative director, freelance writer, and author.


There's More Than One Kind of Poison in This Town

People are sick and dying. Rumors are swirling. Some claim chemicals leaking from a manufacturing plant are causing the cancer that's crippling people on the poor side of Trenton City, Ohio. Yet nothing at the plant appears amiss.

The problem remains a mystery until reporter Jack Crittendon's long-time mechanic falls ill and he investigates. Soon Jack becomes engulfed in a smokescreen of lies, setups, greed, and scandal.

The deeper he digs, the more toxic the corruption he uncovers. As he faces off with the big-time players behind the scenes and tries to beat the clock before more people die, he realizes the chillingly unthinkable--he knows too much.

Margie's Comments: This is the second book in Creston Mapes's Crittendon Files series. The book is high on action and complex in solving the main issue of corporate corruption. The characters are familiar, for those who read the first book, and they continue to grow and develop. What I really like about Poison Town, that while some things are carry overs from the first book, it doesn't matter if you read it. Poison Town is a great read as a stand-alone. I highly recommend this book for those who like non-stop suspense coupled with characters who have a genuine faith-walk with God.
