About John Fitch V

Born in the city of Fitchburg, Massachusetts, in 1977, Fitch's love of fantasy began 11 years later when he was handed J.R.R. Tolkien's classic The Hobbit. His passion for writing began in 1993, as a sophomore in high school, when he began to write sports for his local newspaper, the Sentinel & Enterprise. Since then, he has written for several Massachusetts newspapers, including the Telegram & Gazette of Worcester and the Southbridge Evening News in Southbridge. He has since returned to where it all started, as he came back to the Sentinel in April 2008. He also strings for the Springfield Republican and Turley Publications.

Fantastic story! I couldn't put it down! Kept me on the edge to the very end and left me wanting to read more from the author. Will be keeping an eye out for future tales because this one sure was a winner! Great job!

Review by: D.G. Gass on Dec. 11, 2010 :
The citizens of the quiet farming community of Bakersville now live in terror as a killer is running loose among them. His target, the property owners who refuse to sell to the new superstore that is planning on building there. In the middle, two love-struck teenagers, Ben Jay and Katie Prior, both members of the families that are potential targets of the assassin. Question is, will they be able to keep themselves, as well as their families from becoming victims to the greed of mind.

Author John Fitch V, takes us on a fast paced, suspense filled story of one man’s (and perhaps, one corporations) motivation of greed. Well written, the author adeptly incorporates the provocation of the killer with the motivation of the landowners who continue to refuse to sell to the giant corporation. Add a touch of conflict between the two teenagers and you have an enjoyable thriller.

As much as I liked it, I hope that one day we can convince Mr. Fitch to expand this story plot into a full-length novel. It didn’t take long to get involved in the storyline and then it ended too quickly, strong yes, but still I would have loved to found myself totally engrossed in it for hours. Regardless, it is still a very good story and I recommend it, especially if you enjoy suspense novels.
