Deadly Pranks by Donald Rush.

Revenge Thriller With A Shocking Ending!

What happens when a joke turns deadly?

Growing up in the sleepy and idyllic town of Kirtland, Ohio, four teenage boys, lifelong friends, enjoy many innocent pastimes, including football, baseball, and camping. The one not-so-innocent pursuit they’ve got tangled up in: pranks. Things take a sinister turn when tragedy befalls a tight-knit farming family, and their beloved father lies dead.

Revenge is a dish best served with a side of sisterly devotion and anger. Reeling from their father’s tragic demise, two daughters turn vigilante in their pursuit of giving the boys exactly what they deserve. They hatch a plan that escalates into one thrilling, suspenseful ride after the next. One which the boys are likely never to forget. If they all survive, that is.

Police race against time to gather the evidence they need, and they are left wondering if all is as it seems. Kidnapping at gunpoint, mystery, and gruesome twists abound.

Will the sisters get their justice? Will the pranksters be the ones with the last laugh? Who will end up behind bars or six feet under? Revenge thriller with a shock ending…

About D.C. Rush: We actually began writing our first children’s book about 2 years ago. Cathy and I would often sit outside watching the birds. We fed the birds daily. They were very clever and fun to watch, especially when the little birds kicked seed to the ground for the larger birds. It seemed the birds had some group structure and displayed very effective teamwork. We thought it would be interesting to write a book about birds flying south for the winter.

The finished book sat on our computer hard drive for over a year before my brother and sister-in-law convinced us to self-publishing. I never thought we would actually publish our work. However, the birth of our grandson Rylie gave us some added incentive to get the book out there, and we decided to dedicate the book to him. We thought it would be nice to leave something behind for our children and their children. So, we had the book proofed, edited, illustrated then self-published it ourselves at

Cathy and Don currently live in Arizona with their cats, Nomi and Hershey. Cathy is a homemaker and Don is a retired Manufacturing Manager and former Elementary School Governing Board Member.
