Poison Town

David C. Cook (February 1, 2014)


Creston Mapes


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.

MY REVIEW-If you like eerie suspense stories, this is one you should definitely pick up. The book stars Jack Crittendon, which many of you will remember from the first book, who follows another lead on a new story. Taking his car to the local mechanic starts to unravel a mystery that is killing people on the other side of his town. Needless to say there is a lot of political fallout and his world is thrown upside down as he races to find out why so many are dying. This is an excellent book with well written characters. Loved it!!
