Sky Zone by Creston Mapes (Crittendon Files book 3)

Wow! It is already the third, and last book of this series! Fear Has A Name, and Poison Town were the first two. This book picks up running and gets faster!

Jack Crittendon and his wife Pam are expecting their third baby. Jack is out of regular work since he is not with the Trenton City Dispatch newspaper anymore. Struggling to make ends meet, Jack is miserable that his only work is security detail at the giant civic-center like arena.

Pam is working, while so close to having the baby, to bring in the meager income that isn't going far enough. Their best friends are set on preparing for worse event situations, and Pam's Mother who lives with them is instantly hooked on planning for the worst case scenario. (You have to read this! It is laid out so very nicely, and so very well explained!)

Jack is at work at the arena. The speaker of the night is the up and coming possible new Presidential candidate, who is currently known as Senator Martin Sterling. Right before everyone gets there for this big rally, event, speech, the team gets a heads up that a terrorist plot might be planned. While the event isn't getting canceled thus far, the team is frantic to keep everyone safe. That would be easier if a few team members were suddenly missing and not answering their walkies!

When the doors open before they are sure things are totally secure according to the team's liking, everything picks up into major and masterfully written, life-like scenarios! This could go as planned, or this could be a disaster of epic proportions!

You will not want to miss this book!

This week, the

is introducing

David C. Cook (June 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.


A rally for a controversial presidential candidate.
A terrorist threat.
A nightmare of cataclysmic proportions.

Jack and Pamela Crittendon have hit the breaking point. After months out of work as a reporter, Jack is playing Mr. Mom and working part-time at Festival Arena with his survivalist friend Brian Shakespeare. Meanwhile, Pamela has gone back to work full-time while eight months pregnant. Having her recently widowed mother on hand isn't making matters any easier.

With financial pressures boiling, Jack reports for duty at a rally for controversial presidential candidate Martin Sterling where he expects a mindless night on the job. But when Homeland Security picks up intel about a potential terrorist threat, Jack and Shakespeare are thrust into a life-or-death battle to save their own lives--and the lives of thousands of innocent people.
