John Maris – My Encounter with The Great Train Robbery: 55 Years Later, Man Who Discovered Robbers’ Secret Hideout Releases Memoir

Author John Maris’ ‘My Encounter with The Great Train Robbery – How I became a Marked Man’ tells the story of a fifty-year life in the wake of an unexpected yet profound discovery. Maris was the man who found the “Great Train Robbers’” secret hideout, 9781912505227spiraling his life into one of death threats, unwanted global fame and an eventual wrongful perjury charge. This is his story…told with uninhibited honesty.

This is a story of an alert member of the public who had his life and that of his family changed having notified the police of the whereabouts of the hideout of the Great Train Robbers. Within days his notoriety had spread worldwide and this began years of constant pressure, physical threats to him and his family, trauma and anxiety.

He had to take precautions at work in the hope of preventing an attack whilst working alone. Because of his careful detail in the evidence which he gave at the trial he was subjected to an attempt to frame him on a charge of perjury. Eventually he pondered the question, If a similar situation arose, would he act in the same way?

 “Life was simply never the same afterwards,” explains Maris. “What started as me reporting some strange behaviour on Leatherslade Farm to the Police descended into an endless barrage of threats. In fact, I was unable to leave my house without a wooden truncheon, that I felt I had to carry for protection.”

Continuing, “Of course, then the trial came, and I found myself being framed on a charge of perjury. It’s been an interesting five decades since that fateful day, and this is the first time I’ve told the story with such raw honesty and detail. It’s going to answer a lot of questions about my life, and those of the men who were responsible for the most fascinating crime in modern history.”

of hundreds of hours of research into anti-terrorist military operations. While fiction, it reads like a documentary – as a British SAS soldier is tasked with forming an anti-terrorist taskforce. However, Jack Copeland has other ideas…

The systematic destruction of several key US diplomatic installations in the Middle East by a ruthless terrorist campaign and the kidnapping of Charles Perez, the US Ambassador to Sierra Leone, forced the President to act. Jack Copeland is former British SAS now employed by the Americans to spearhead the anti-terrorist group ‘Scorpion’. The rescue mission cost lives, and Copeland realised that he was losing the support of the very people who had placed him in this position.

He had a hidden agenda that he knew needed the support and approval of his Commander-in-Chief, the President of the USA; he also knew that in order for the plan to succeed, there was one other person to whom he needed to turn.

The story is based on the author’s vast experience in the military and personal security.

Anthony Wayman releases “IGOR”, his well researched book about attitudes towards the Soviet Union

Wayman believes the portrayal of the Soviet Union during the Cold War period was usually unflattering yet, following the death of Joseph Stalin, the Cold War might not have been quite so cold had a more balanced approach been adopted in the West.

There was a genuine desire by the new administration for a better relationship. IGOR, an account of the experiences of a uniquely talented young Russian may serve to help illustrate this, though he recognises that some readers might dismiss it as implausible.

ShieldCrest Publishing expands its operation worldwide

Although ShieldCrest’s authors are from all over the world and its eBook sales have always been available worldwide, the UK has always been the predominant market for sales of hard copies.  One of the reasons is, of course, the cost of moving heavy paper around the world.

However, it has now established marketing and printing of its books in key locations throughout the world, including the USA. This makes it much more accessible to interested purchasers overseas who can obtain copies of ShieldCrest author’s books from local retailers with their books printed locally.

ShieldCrest is already established as the leading self-publisher for service, price and quality. This has largely been achieved because it publishes all its author’s books in-house and this move further secures its rapidly increasing dominant position in the market.

There will be a major announcement towards the end of the year of the company’s expansion into a new area of publishing so to ensure you don’t miss this and to keep up with all the company’s activities, its authors and new book releases make sure you add your email address and follow these announcements.

Incredible success by our author Richard Hardaker

Congratulations to Richard for the outstanding success of his book entitled “Executive Protection – The Next Level”.

His book has become the de-facto standard for all training in, what is becoming, a more and more important industry.  His considerable personal experience in personal protection for royal families and other significant people and organisation has been recognised and his book tells its own story as it is sold throughout the world and will shortly be translated into Spanish and other languages.

He says;

“Close Protection (CP) is renowned for its excellence in providing top level protection to many levels of society. The fact that CP is being used in the first place means that there is a real risk to the person being protected.
Providing the right calibre of individual or team is necessary to ensure that the correct concentric level(s) of security is measurable to the threat.
This book is aimed at those who aspire to be managers, team leaders or supervisors with the responsibility of recruitment and selection of a team. Having a CP licence is merely the first step…”9781911090847
