Sky Zone

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.


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.

My Review:
I love this series! This book focused more on homeland security and the effects that terrorism can have on people. Any one can be affected by terrorism, even people that are a stay at home dad. There were a lot of politics in this book, and I enjoyed reading about the presidential campaign. There was a lot of controversy about the candidate and politics can get dirty real fast. Jack's marriage has been in all the books and it was fun to catch up with him and his wife. I also enjoyed reading about characters from the author's other thrillers. This is a great political thriller that pulled me in and I would love for this to be a movie series. I felt like I know these people. Mr Mapes does an amazing job with character development and you can see his talent just by reading about all the things Pam goes through. I think that it was nice of the author to discuss emergency procedures and preparation. I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
