ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

ABOUT THE BOOK
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.

While reading the Crittendon Files, Creston Mapes has quickly been added to my list of favorite authors in the past year. It feels like I can't read fast enough to keep up with his writing. The story changes, characters develop and things twist and turn at break neck speed as you turn pages. Creston Maples writes the type of books that I like to watch in movies. Frankly, these books would make amazing movies.
Although in the fiction category, Mapes writes about things that could really happen. He makes you think. He makes you challenge what you think you know. In a world where media tells us what they think we need to know, being challenged to think is a very good thing.
I highly recommend this and all the other books in the Crittendon Files series.
