Kirtland High School alumni Don Rush has published a book, Deadly Pranks, and it is available at the Library.
Deadly Pranks is about four teenage boys from Kirtland, Ohio (Don being one of them), who pulled some innocent pranks on his neighbors and friends. As the story unfolds, the (fictitious) pranks become more evil and sinister, causing the father of two girls to have a heart attack. The plot proceeds where the two evil sisters capture and blindfold the boys, kidnap them, and keep them caged up in a barn in Kirtland.
If you read the book, you can find out if all the boys survive, and the outcome of the two girls. As Mr. Rush says, “I decided early on the two girls would be the aggressors in the book. You don’t read very often, if ever, about two girls, setting up an elaborate plan to kidnap and torture four boys.”
Mr. Rush also writes about Mentor, Painesville, Euclid, Cleveland, along with the Cleveland Browns and Cleveland Indians, as a reference to the area in certain plots in the book.
