Inmate releases two new novels from prison cell
(CNS): HMP Northward’s best known resident has published two more novels, which are now available in paperback. Following on from his first thriller, Caribbean Cartels, author Sheldon M Brown has now released his latest two books from the desk of his cell -- Unholy Accord and Mayflower. Although Brown may be better known for his self-confessed criminal behavior, anyone who has read Caribbean Cartels will know that the former gangster has a flare for storytelling. According to his promoters, the latest two novels are both fast paced thrillers designed to keep the reader on the edge of his seat. The Cayman Islands provides the backdrop for both books in stories about international terrorism and the world of espionage.
The two new novels, along with Brown’s debut work, are all available locally at Books and Books and online at Lulu.com as well as the Amazon Kindle Store.
With a talent for writing and a knowledge of how the criminal world works, Brown has proved to be an impressive author whose stories can stand-up with the best of their genre. Since his imprisonment in 2006, after he was convicted of trying to kill Fernando Martin, the 42-year-old author has turned from real life crime and immersed himself in the crime of the imagination to share with his growing fan base.
Having studied the history of the Italian and American Mafia, dating back to the 1800s, the Japanese Yakuza, Chinese Triads, the Mexican and Colombian Cartels, and the more recent Afro and Latin American and Caribbean gangs, Brown learned that only around one percent of those who live a life of crime die a natural death or are able to retire with any great wealth. Most are dead by the age of 35 or given lengthy, often indefinite, prison sentences by age 40.
Learning from history and his own personal experiences, with betrayal, assassination attempts and several trips to prison, Brown has taken another route. Regretting the decisions which kept him trapped in a life of crime for two decades, his experiences have undoubtedly added to the quality of his storytelling.
In Caribbean Cartels, Brown has tried to reach out to the wayward civil society and the government. He shows the pros and the cons of the gangster lifestyle and where it ultimately ends. Caribbean Cartels attempts to get mainstream society to understand the social ills and how they could change the disease of recidivism by assisting, forgiving, and helping to direct ex-convicts to be reintegrated into the community or saving delinquents before they end up in prison.
All of his books are intended to not only entertain but to make society take note. In his second book, Unholy Accord, he looks at the dangers of radical Islam and how easily unsuspecting countries could become targets for extremist terrorists, believing that the Cayman Islands are a potential target for such an attack. In his third book, Mayflower, he examines the unorthodox nature of the Overseas Territories governments and how greedy, power-hungry and corrupt administrators, if left to govern unchecked, could result in unintended consequences that will ultimately affect the citizens of those countries.
Despite being inside Northward, Brown is said to keep an eye on local and international politics and says citizens should take their heads out of the sand and demand greater accountability of their leaders, because what happens in Mayflower is a very real possibility.
Although Brown has served only six years of his 22 year sentence, he intends to make a career as an author and has promised his readers that his fourth book, which will be released in 2013, will be just as exciting, enlightening and entertaining as his three previous novels. He also plans an autobiography in the near future, which Brown hopes will discourage anyone who is contemplating a life of crime or may be trapped in it.
See book descriptions below:
This is a fast-paced, suspense-filled thriller about a five-man terrorist sleeper cell sent to the United States and Grand Cayman to live and blend in amongst the locals until they are instructed to carry out simultaneous attacks against both countries. The deadly biological weapon, which was constructed by Shaheed Hariri, a Hezbollah-linked Lebanese scientist who lives in the US, was designed to kill millions of people and cause fear and panic. The US government, the CIA and FBI actively seek out a world-renowned microbiologist, who they hope will be able to explain the contents of the weapon. If they don’t find an antidote soon enough, hundreds of millions of people will die and cause a humanitarian catastrophe.
The US and Cayman Islands economy are brought to a grinding halt, as the aftermath of the attacks threatens to destabilize both countries and indeed the world at large. Great Britain, the United States and other Caribbean countries come to the aid of the Caymanian people, who have never been the victims of a terrorist attack. Thousands are killed by the attack on Grand Cayman, forcing the Premier Karl Limmitts to take extraordinary measures to protect the lives of the island’s surviving residents. The crime thriller is set on Grand Cayman but the story also takes you to the mean streets of hardline Islamic states, as FBI and CIA agents risk their lives to track down an international terrorist network.
In his third book, Brown presents readers with a suspense-filled spy thriller that will keep them on the edge of their seats as the riveting story about greed, distrust, lust, power, corruption, betrayal and revenge unfolds. Veteran MI6 agent Natalya Pushkina is sent to Grand Cayman on a mission for Mayflower, a powerful and often deadly organization of hard-liners, composed of some elements of the British government and its intelligence services.
The group believes the islands are a liability to Great Britain, and that there may be a lot to gain by removing them from their list of Overseas Territories. Gerry Noonan, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, is also the leader of the clandestine group. Noonan devises a plan that he believes will give the UK the perfect reason to sever ties with the Cayman Islands and enable him to ruin their financial industry, while shoring up Britain’s dwindling economy.
The group formulates a plan and sends a highly-trained female agent to the West Indian three-island chain with millions of dollars to set up an accounting firm called Baxter Incorporated, which is housed at Gardenia Court in Camana Bay, a few hundred meters from her own waterfront condominium.
However, Natalya, who should be spying on certain prominent people, is betraying not only her handlers but her country as well. Unknown to anyone in Britain, she is involved in a forbidden relationship with a Russian Intelligence agent, who is sending hundreds of millions of dollars through her shell company, Bristol Business Consultants. Natalya then uses the money to invest in development projects.
To facilitate her investment plans for the island, Natalya seduces a local corrupt politician, who does what is necessary to assist the MI6 agent, while lining his own pockets and his cronies as well.
But a shrewd local banker discovers serious irregularities and unexplained wealth in the bank accounts of some very prominent people, which sets off a chain of high-profile crimes that threatens the very peace and stability of this tropical paradise, forcing Governor Harry Dinspel to step in and use his executive power. He takes a drastic, but very unpopular decision to save the reputation of the islands and reinstate confidence in its administrators.
