From the Author

Is there really such a thing as starting over again? What if the past wants to drag you back to the pit from which you came? Everett Lester finds out what it means to turn over a new leaf, and to have the devil on his shoulder, ravaging him, telling him he will never be a new man. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
Creston Mapes' second novel, Full Tilt, rocks with suspense especially throughout the last page-turning half.

The whole world as Everett Lester knew it has changed. His days are spent learning to live as a new Christian, and attempting to help his family find God. He sheds the comfortable darkness of his past and the light reveals the damage he did to those he loves.

Mapes did his homework on the insidious and dangerous addictive power of methamphetamine. Under Meth's influence, Lester's nephew veers out of control toward self destruction, and Everett is compelled to save Wesley.

This book is overtly Christian, with prayers and Bible verses quoted.

If you are a fan of Dark Star, you should love this book. If you have issues of faith that sometimes border on doubt or self-hatred, this novel may encourage you. If you or someone you love struggles with addictions, this novel may hold some insight.

Format: Paperback
Remember when Michael Jackson showed up at an AME Church a few weeks before his trial? Or what about Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston getting baptised in the River Jordan by the African Israelites? Weird and over the top, huh?

Well imagine Everett Lester, front man for DeathStroke-the most popular alternative rockband in the world. Do you think anyone will believe that this satanistic stonehead would be sitting on Larry King Live spouting biblical scripture and Christianese? Unimaginable unless God really does exist. And if he does...who wouldn't shout the Gospel full effect live? Or in Creston Mape's second book to the Rock Stars Chronicles case- who wouldn't rock God at Full Tilt? Everett hopes he can, although the media and his new fans are starting to not believe his hype. Will his Living Water tour will revitalize Christ's image? Can he reach his old fans? More importantly can he reach his vengeful, meth-dealing nephew, who wants him dead?

Creston sat down with my writer's group last month and candidly wondered if Everett's plight resonates with our Christian counterculture. From what I read, I think he's dead on. In North Georgia and I'm sure in other parts of America, meth has become a demon, hell bent on taking out our little sisters and brothers.

As a local christian reporter who is also an unmarried single mother, I completely understand what Everett is going through. People are always watching to see if you're what you say you are, and they are quick to alert the rest of the world when you slip. Sometimes I want to stay in the house and keep my novels under my bed. (Wait a minute. I still do that. :) )

Written very well, fast-paced, realistic, and eye-opening. Full Tilt is my April book pic for this month.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Gina Holmes on March 30, 2006
Format: Paperback
In this sequel to Dark Star, Creston takes us on a thrill ride. Everett is still rocking but the born again believer is now doing it for the Lord and not everyone is happy that the wildly popular group, Death Stroke has disbanded.

Everett wants to begin a new life with wife, Karen, but they are plunged into danger again and again, first by their Meth addicted nephew, then by Everett's gambling addicted brother who is in deep with the mob.

Murder, drugs, rock n roll and redemption. This book has it all. It also includes a fair amount of prayer, ministering, and scripture quoting as well.

You do not have to have read book one to fully understand and enjoy Full Tilt.

Creston's writing is even better in this novel. He doesn't shy away from tough issues and once again proves that no one is beyond redemption. I recommend Full Tilt to anyone who has suffered from addiction or knows someone who has and to those who have sowed some wild seeds before coming to Christ.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Armchair Interviews on March 29, 2006
Format: Paperback
Full Tilt by Creston Mapes is the sequel to his compelling novel Dark Star: Confessions of a Rock Idol. Full Tilt continues with the life of thirty-five-year old Everett Lester who rose to the level of legendary rock idol with his band DeathStroke.

Everett used to play rock music for the personal glory it brought to him. Now, with the support and encouragement of his wife Karen (who had prayed for his salvation since she was a teenager), he plays for the glory of God and the salvation of others.

Married a year, Everett and Karen long for a child to parent. But God's plans are not what Everett and Karen initially thought they would be, and learning to live with God's will and a change of course in their lives is a challenge.

Everett also longs to share his faith with his dysfunctional family. His brother Eddie has succumbed to the addiction of gambling, and his nephew Wesley is involved with drugs and the mob.

Wesley Lester blames his Uncle Everett's music for his brother David's death. It's easier that way. The more difficult truth that he was responsible, through drugs, was not a story he was willing to accept. Everett would have to pay. Vengeance is on Wesley's mind as he joins forces with the evil psychotic, Tony, in his determination to bring down his uncle. Will evil prevail or can God, with the help of a faithful follower win?

Like Dark Star, Full Tilt is a powerful story of good vs. evil. Mapes writing style is compelling, sparse and daring. He writes a gritty novel that grapples with evil while delivering a message of hope, love, faith, and the healing power of God.

Armchair Interviews says: Full Tilt is a must read novel for every age. But we believe that young adults will be the greatest benefactors of Mapes talent.
