Fear Has A Name

This week, the

is introducing
Fear Has a Name
David C. Cook (June 1, 2013)
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.

Creston can be reached through the Contact link on his Website.

From popular suspense author Creston Mapes comes another faith-building thriller, a tale that follows journalist Jack Crittendon as he fights to protect his family from a stalker's terrifying schemes, investigates a pastor's mysterious disappearance, and struggles to keep his faith amidst unthinkable fear.
With his family's safety on the line, Crittendon realizes there are secrets behind "Christian" walls--secrets with painful, deadly implications. He must find the faith to trust a God who allows inconceivable trials, and the courage to guard his family, with danger exploding at every turn.
Through it all--the sharp, character-driven writing for which Mapes is known--takes fans and new readers on an edge-of-your-seat journey that explores the harsh, far-reaching consequences of bullying and the Christian response to fear.

My Thoughts About the Book:
Creston Mapes has helped grow my "keeper shelf"!  His books, especially this new series The Crittendon Files, will join my other favorite author's and their titles.  Mapes grabbed me in this one right away.  He writes with rich characterization, vivid description and emotion filled tension.  I also appreciated how Mapes let you see the story from the different perspectives of each main character.  There is depth to this story that many fiction authors just aren't able to accomplish, but Mapes has done it exceptionally well.  You'll read much of this one sitting on the edge of your seat!  The ending is spectacular and I can't wait to see what is in store for John Crittendon and his family in the next book Poison Town due out in Feb. 2014.

Happy Reading,
