massive hunt is initiated to capture Moore. The hunt is soon expanded to include missing Secret
Service Agent and a mysterious, unidentified third party.

murders, a rogue Put-in-Bay police officer, an illicit love affair, arson, Pirates’ Week festivities, a
terrorist bomb threat in Put-in-Bay and boat chases; Moore tries to stay one step ahead of his
would-be captors as he works to clear his name and find the President.

Originally released on paper in 2008, the book continues his hugely-popular Emerson Moore
series and Lake Erie Island best-sellers.
In 1944 a mysterious German raider from Hitler’s pirate fleet disappears in the Caribbean. A
Soviet Navy frigate, sunk off Grand Cayman Island years later, holds a key secret to the Cuban
A tragedy on the dangerous wintry ice of Lake Erie causes Washington Post investigative
reporter EMERSON MOORE to escape to the Cayman Islands after a brief stop in Key West for
Put-in-Bay Days where his ex-Navy SEAL friend, SAM DUNCAN, faced an assassination
In the Cayman Islands, MOORE is pulled into the intrigue surrounding nefarious Jamaican drug
lord, PRYCE CLARKE, and his surreptitious underwater activities in Boatswain’s Bay off of
DiveTech. At the same time, MOORE’s curiosity involves him in the search for the missing
German raider and he uncovers the surprising twist as to what the Soviet Union had planned for
the United States during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
The provocative cast of characters also includes legendary Put-in-Bay island singer MIKE
“MAD DOG” ADAMS, an attractive and reticent Jamaican woman, a furtive Royal Caymanian
Police Superintendent and the rapscallions at Durty Reid’s Bar and Grille in Red Bay.
From the wintry ice of the Lake Erie islands to the warm island breezes of the Cayman Islands,
The Other Side of Hell delivers a pirate raid, a series of murders and suspenseful underwater
scuba action, and exciting explorations of the enchanting waters.
As the author explains, he enjoys creating the adventure and excitement that his readers crave.
“People demand good and hard-hitting literature. This is the beauty of a series; you can continue
to satisfy the demand that your growing readership creates. By connecting with and listening to
readers, they can also help shape the story and really immerse themselves in the middle of the
action,” says Adamov.
If you liked National Treasure and DaVinci Code, you’ll love Sandustee. It’s a worldwide chase
for clues to finding a lost Biblical scroll, the Nazarene’s Code, which gives the holder the power
to control nations. Running through the novel is a thread which links Osama Bin Laden to Jesus
and the twelve disciples to Abraham Lincoln to Lincoln’s assassination to Booth’s escape to Dr.
Samuel Mudd’s house to Mudd’s imprisonment in the Dry Tortugas. The thread is the Legend of
13; words with thirteen letters have stunning implications on the plotline.
This action-packed novel is filled with murder, cross and double-cross, scuba action, a touch of
Knights Templar, Masonic symbolism, and political intrigue in D.C. and the world intelligence
community. Washington Post investigative reporter, EMERSON MOORE, is accompanied by a
beautiful blonde German antiquities researcher, KATRINA BIEBER, as they try to stay one step
ahead of the shadowy Russian KARAPASHEV in finding and interpreting the clues. Moore is
aided by former NSA cybercode breaker STEVE NICHOLAS and retired German BND
spymaster ANDREAS KALKER.
From scuba diving in the Red Sea to the allure of Bodrum, Turkey, Moore and Bieber chase
clues in Germany, the island of Rhodes, London, Key West, the Dry Tortugas, New Orleans, the
Washington, D.C. area, and Ohio’s Huron, Sandusky and Put-in-Bay. Death is close on their
