Fear Has a Name by Creston Mapes -CFBA Review

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Fear Has a Name
David C. Cook (June 1, 2013)
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.


From popular suspense author Creston Mapes comes another faith-building thriller, a tale that follows journalist Jack Crittendon as he fights to protect his family from a stalker's terrifying schemes, investigates a pastor's mysterious disappearance, and struggles to keep his faith amidst unthinkable fear.

With his family's safety on the line, Crittendon realizes there are secrets behind "Christian" walls--secrets with painful, deadly implications. He must find the faith to trust a God who allows inconceivable trials, and the courage to guard his family, with danger exploding at every turn.

Through it all--the sharp, character-driven writing for which Mapes is known--takes fans and new readers on an edge-of-your-seat journey that explores the harsh, far-reaching consequences of bullying and the Christian response to fear.

My thoughts:  This book is wonderfully written.  It is suspenseful and keeps you hooked until the last minute! Loved the ending and can't wait to read the second book already.  Jack and his wife have some pretty hard moments to go through in this book as do Pastor Evan and his wife.  I think the way the author wove this whole thing together, integrating the characters and having them help each other with their problems and strengthening their faith is awesome!  This was a book that I didn't want to put down.  Oh and of course who can forget Granger Meade who is just in need of a friend.  This is definitely a great read and I do believe it will be a bestselling hit if my enjoyment of it meant anything!
