Find Edsell!

It is long past midnight on the New Jersey shore in June 1988 as a blue van rolls quietly along Kearney Avenue in Seaside Heights. The man behind the wheel smiles as he spots seventeen-year-old Edsell Jones stumbling out of a house and drunkenly lumbering down the street. Moments later, the man pulls up next to Edsell and convinces him to take his offer of a ride. Soon, the van is lost within the darkness of the Pine Barrens.


Find Edsell! by Elsa Bonstein

Book Reviews

“In Find Edsell!, Elsa Bonstein weaves a compelling tale of murder, madness, friendship and love that grabs you on the first page and doesn’t let go.  Her characters are richly drawn, and imbued with just enough complexity and nuance to render them familiar, without ever becoming cliché.

The story unfolds in and around the Pine Barrens surrounding the Jersey Shore — an area that, to the untrained eye, appears as little more than rugged, inhospitable wasteland.  Yet, thanks to Mrs. Bonstein’s exquisite prose, the Barrens quickly transcend traditional limitations and crackle to life.  Like a character both beautiful and dangerous, the Barrens’ impact can be seen not only in the lives of our main characters, but in each twist and turn of the story.”

“This is a fast-faced, well written thriller. The author has done a vast amount of research for this novel, which results in a richly woven tale set against the backdrop of the New Jersey Pine Barrens. The author brings the exciting plot to life with thorough character development, witty dialogue, vivid imagery, and well-placed foreshadowing. This is a great read!
