Dark Star: Confessions of a Rock Idol

By Creston Mapes


Can Money, Fame And Power Buy Happiness?

Everett Lester and his band, DeathStroke, ride the crest of a wave that has catapulted them to superstardom. But the deeper they become immersed in this world of fame, wealth, and power, the more likely they are to be swallowed alive by the drugs, alcohol, and discontentment that have become their only friends. Everett is headed down a perilous road of no apparent return when he is charged with the murder of his personal psychic. The only hope he can cling to comes from Topeka, Kansas, and the letters written by a prayerful young lady who lives there. Consistent and persistent, the notes cut straight to Everett’s empty heart and threaten a fulfillment he’s never grasped before. But what if he’s found guilty of murder? And, will he recognize the spiritual battle that’s raging for his soul?

Why the author wrote this book:

The Story Behind the Book
“I hope Dark Star will develop in Christian readers an open mind about loving the lost and reaching every individual with the truth of Christ’s unconditional love — no matter what those people may look like or how they may live. Perhaps it will increase believers’ confidence in the impact we can have when stepping out in faith to simply love as Christ loved — in a genuine, compassionate, and understanding way. I pray Dark Star will prove a great read for unbelievers as well, sharing God’s gift of love toward man in a fast-paced story that resonates with people in contemporary society.” — Creston Mapes


"Wonderfully distinct characters and sharp dialogue pull the reader through this crazy, unexpected journey at breakneck speed."
