Ocean Isle Beach, N.C. (PRWEB) March 12, 2014
17-year-old Edsell Jones used to be a good kid. As of late however, he quit hanging out with his childhood friends and started down the dark path of drugs and drinking. This all came to a grinding halt however, when he was stumbling home drunk one night and was picked up by a strange van, not to return home. Elsa Bonstein invites readers to join Edsell’s mother, Lorraine, in search of her son, in Bonstein’s new book, “Find Edsell!” (published by Abbott Press).
When Lorraine goes to the police, she isn’t taken seriously, which prompts her to call two of Edsell’s friends for help. A former army commando also joins the search, leading to the uncovering of a sinister plot involving a secret drug-testing facility, a scientist who performs questionable studies and a raging wildfire threatening to destroy everyone and everything in its path.
An excerpt from “Find Edsell!”:
“There are legends about the Barrens, legends of a Jersey Devil, of pirates who buried casks of gold, and bank robbers who hid gold bullion under the scraggly pines. In modern times, there are whispers about mob victims who rest in the deep, white sand. The Pine Barrens are still, calm, and beautiful. The Pine Barrens are dangerous. It all depends on who you are and what you have to hide.”
Bonstein hopes “Find Edsell!” will not only entertain readers, but also that her blurring of moral lines will encourage readers to question what is right and wrong.
