Death Sentence by Sheryl Browne

Thriller/Psychological thriller/Crime thriller
Release Date: 1st June 2015

Reviewed by a top Amazon Reviewer at Best Selling Thrillers and given a glowing FIVE Stars, Sheryl Browne’s new thriller Death Sentence is now available on Amazon! “This was such an excellent read. I found myself having to force myself to breathe. Well done Sheryl! Once again you’ve produced a book with such an array of plots and yet showing that love is still possible throughout tragedy and conflict”. – Treebeard

*The title of the book, DEATH SENTENCE, was suggested by a chief constable who also offered the author guidance on forensics and police procedure.

Death Sentence - He's killed your child and kidnapped your wife. What would YOU do?

Detective Inspector Matthew Adams and Patrick Sullivan, drug dealer, pimp, murderer: two men on opposite sides of the law. A history that goes way back. A bully even in his youth, Sullivan had made it his mission in life to make the goody-two-shoes copper's life a misery. Now Matthew has made it his mission in life to make sure the pimping scum responsible for prostituting young girls, abusing them, and beating them to death, is locked up for life.

When Matthew's child becomes a casualty of the war between them, does Matthew want justice? Or does he want retribution? When Patrick's brother is shot down like a dog in a drug bust gone wrong, Patrick wants payback. He wants Matthew. Or the copper loses his pretty, pregnant wife. As far as Patrick is concerned, it's quid pro quo.

An edge-of-your seat story of revenge.

Writing Ambitions

When I began my first book - which will never see the light of day - there were several ambitions I aimed for but never expected to achieve.

Finally, after quite a few years writing, rewriting and rewriting several novels, I've managed to see the following dreams come true:

  • Seeing my first book finished - I loved the whole scary experience of self-publishing and learned a huge amount.
  • Seeing my book in print/on my Kindle
  • Someone buying and enjoying my book enough to give it a 5* review - This is the best way to make an author happy, buy their book, read and enjoy it, leave a glowing review that they can savour.
  • Seeing my first two books, A Jersey Kiss and A Jersey Affair - for sale in Jersey's Waterstones store. This excitement was heightened when both rose up the Waterstones' Top Ten Book Charts staying there for over a month reaching #3 and #7 simultaneously.
  • Being traditionally published - I signed a four-book contract with Accent Press, a publisher I'd long admired, in August 2014.
  • One of my books being up for an award - A Jersey Kiss was a recent finalist in the Romantic Novelists' Association Joan Hessayon Award 2015. Although I didn't win the competition, I did receive a certificate to mark being a finalist together with a cheque from the sponsor. (I'm the one in the picture whose trying her best to hide in the middle of the other finalists).
  • Seeing my name and that of my book in The Bookseller - here's the link.

I remember wondering who I thought I was kidding thinking I could write a book anyone else would want to read, let alone pay to buy. This was about three years ago and I couldn't decide whether I should give up and forget about my writing dream. Then I read somewhere that published authors are the ones who didn't give up. This thought spurred me one once again and now I'm relieved that it did.
