Buford-based author to hold book signing
Placeholder Image

Buford-based author Creston Mapes has been writing professionally for more than 20 years, and on Saturday he’ll be at the Hall Book Exchange to sign copies of his latest novel, "Nobody."

The story follows a newspaper reporter in Las Vegas who finds a homeless man dead, but the plot thickens when a bank book worth $1 million is found on the body.

"The heat is turned up throughout the whole book and the characters are put in some high pressure situations," Mapes said.

The book is classified as inspirational fiction, but Mapes said it will appeal to anyone who likes suspense and mystery. Mapes will also be signing his two previous suspense novels, "Dark Star," which is about a rock star on trial for murder, and its sequel, "Full Tilt." And there will be a drawing for a fiction basket. The books are available at the Hall Book Exchange and major retail chains.
