ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
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.
ABOUT THE BOOK
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.

This was my first read by Creston Mapes but since reading this, I have downloaded all of his books!! Talk about gripping, edge of your seat drama!! This is one incredible book that has several meanings to the title, "Poison Town". What would you do to save the lives of those around you facing the poisons of the world? That's what the residents of Trenton City, Ohio are facing. This is the second book in a series about Jack Crittendon but I don't feel like I totally missed any information to have this one flow. I've downloaded the prequel to this book though and can't wait to dive in! I love how this story plays out and it's a reminder to watch out for the toxins this world can bring in, physically, emotionally, and spiritually!
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
