Review: Sky Zone by Creston Mapes


Sky Zone by Creston Mapes is the third book in his Crittendon Files series.  Wow.  This story picks up about 8 months after the events of Poison Town.  Jack is working part time now as an usher for an events company after losing his job.  He and Pam are expecting their third child and they still have Pam’s mom, Margaret, who is dealing with dementia living with them.  They are also having a lot of financial problems due to the loss of Jack’s full time job and Pam has had to go back to work for insurance after being a stay at home mom.  All of this is really putting a strain on their marriage.  We are introduced to Jack’s coworkers, especially Brian Shakespeare who is described as a survivalist.  This book for the most part takes place in less than 24 hours.  We do go back in some chapters to see how our main characters get to the places they end up being when a terrorist attack is about to go down.  I don’t want to say too much more, but this book is over 400 pages and I read it in less 2 days.  That is how intense and fast and hard for me to put this book down was.  One of the things that I really like about Creston Mapes’ stories, is that even though we are introduced to a group of characters and a lot is going on in all of their lives, I have never felt lost in his stories.  He keeps the readers up on all of them and what is happening.  I received this book from The Book Club Network, Inc. (TBCN) and the opinions are my own.
