Local Author's New Thriller: Miami Doctor Leaps from Cruise Ship to Flee Russian Mafia

Award-winning Florida author Richard Wickliffe's new novel, “Eyes of Poseidon,” was inspired by real crimes involving Miami Russian mafia –with some literary license.


Miami, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/06/2018 -- EYES OF POSEIDON, available on Amazon and at your favorite bookseller (and as an eBook) is a follow-up to the award-winning "Storm Crashers," also inspired by unique South Florida crimes.

In Richard Wickliffe's new novel, Eyes of Poseidon, a successful Miami doctor leaps from a cruise ship in the dead of night. His devastated wife, along with an FBI agent who works organized crime, unravel his fate. He'd been lured by a tempting new organization who promised wealth and success.

But after threats and extortion, he knew there was no way out. His family would never be safe. What the wife and Russian Bratva discover next changes everything.

The concept was inspired by real crimes outlined in Richard's published article, The Russian Mafia: A Rising Threat of Fraud and Violence," including actual details from FBI arrests involving bogus medical clinics and alluring girls who'd drugged and robbed tourists along South Beach.

Florida residents may enjoy the novel's many local references, including South Beach, Little Havana, Coral Gables' Biltmore, Fort Lauderdale's Mai Kai, Joe's Stone Crab, Key Biscayne's Rusty Pelican and numerous Bahamas (spoiler alert!)

Since Richard's last book was optioned by Twentieth Century Fox, he's already written the screenplay for Poseidon –just in case.
