Ocean Isle Beach, NC, USA – WEBWIRE

The thriller takes readers to discover the beauty and mystery of the Pine Barrens.

Not many people know about the Pine Barrens in New Jersey except that it is a frequent site of forest fires. Elsa Bonstein’s first fiction book “Find Edsell!” (Abbott Press, 2014) should help raise the profile of the heavily forested area, which is also known as the Pinelands or simply the Pines.
“Find Edsell!” takes place in the Pine Barrens, where Bonstein used to camp with her fellow Girl Scouts. The author also spent some time in the area when she was still working for the state’s forestry department. She remembers the darkness and desolation of the place, which is why she picked the Pine Barrens as the setting for her novel. Indeed, Pine Barrens seems to be the perfect place to hide a drug-testing facility, operated by the novel’s antagonist, a mad scientist who performs questionable experiments.
“Find Edsell!” refers to the 17-year-old Edsell Jones, who is abducted by the mad scientist. When his mother Lorraine finds him missing, she calls Edsell’s friends for help, and soon teens and adults, including a former army commando and a naturalist, join the search for Edsell. But just as soon as they find him, a raging wildfire erupts, threating them and their town. Will the townspeople get out of the raging hell in time?
