Concord author releases new novel
Concord resident Martin Prendergast has released a new thriller mystery novel. Details from a news release:
CONCORD, Ohio — In his new thriller mystery novel, “Fear Itself,” author Martin Prendergast introduces the story of man fearing that his daughter will take all the lengths just to have him for ferself.
Children will be the death of adults, especially if they spike adult’s wine with antifreeze. That is what Mathew Derrick suspects his precious young Sarah did to her mother so that she could have daddy all to herself. But the police think that he killed his wife after discovering that his daughter was the product of an extra-marital affair. Rather than face the wrath of the law, he takes little Sarah and runs.
Although he manages to elude the law, he can’t escape Sarah’s unquenchable wrath for the women in his life. Could this adorable and seemingly innocent child really be a murderess? And if not, who is killing the loves of his life, and why?
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher atwww.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
Prendergast is a freelance writer and fiction author. He received his B.A. in English from John Carroll University, where he studied creative writing under Mark Winegardner. He has published work in the Sig Sec Quarterly and editorials in the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
