Poison Town by Creston Mapes

This is the second book in this series. I really enjoyed the first book, and this one too!
Here we find a large corporation. This company, Demlar-Vargus is so upsetting people. The company is under accusations from people that they are destroying the land, causing cancer, polluting the environment and in general - they are just bad for everyone. Folks are sick, they are dying and they are sure that Demlar-Vargus has a hand in their health issues. After all, they make fiberglass, that should cause all kinds of problems, right?

Jack, from our first book, is now in Poison Town with his wife and they have some major forgiving issues to cope with. Jack is invesitgating for the newspaper, The Dispatch. Jack has people he cares about who are very very sick. They are dying from symptoms that may well lead back to Demlar-Vargus. Just how much is this company covering up? Will they find the truth in this situation?

Now, with his family under attack, Jack might be too close to the truth of the entire matter. Folks are going missing, who were witness and things are really going on with non-stop action! Is what is poisoning this town, and Jack's heart what they really think is poisoning them?

Take a trip with Jack Crittendon and see what is really going on in the hearts and minds of the folks who reside in Poison Town.

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.
