Product description

Product Description

Grenada is a marriage between stunning Caribbean beauty and historical conflict. Blood of Belvidere takes readers on an unforgettable journey deep into the tropical mystique that attracted international intrigue to her shores for hundreds of years.

As a young boy growing up in Grenada, Scott McDonald’s growing pain becomes intertwined with the legacy behind the strange disappearance of a slave-rebellion leader two-hundred years earlier. Secrets and treachery inflict havoc down eight generations of McDonalds, believed to be descendants of the rebel’s archenemy.

In Scott’s search for the truth, he is recruited into an antigovernment movement plotting to overthrow an iron-fisted dictator. When the dictator crushes the movement, Scott flees the island and leaves his entire world behind including the girl he loves, and who is now presumed killed by secret police.

He migrates to the United States and enlists in the U.S. Marines to forget his past. But fate intervenes. The U.S. invades the island to topple a brutal Marxist government and to rescue American students from the turmoil. Scott is among the invaders.

He seeks retribution for his grief, but echoes of his family past remind him of a more sacred mission. He must uncover why a mysterious event in the Belvidere Mountains two-hundred years ago could still fan the fires of dictatorship, revolution, and invasion.

But will he be prepared when he comes face-to-face with the truth?

Blood of Belvidere is a story about human struggle in the darkness of oppression, the bitter taste of betrayal, the sustenance of love, and the healing power of reconciliation.

This is a story of hope.

About the Author

Dunbar Campbell is a writer, public speaker, director of a research group, and a former U.S. Marine. His earliest writing skills were honed in danger when, as a teen-aged student activist growing up during turbulent years on the Caribbean island of Grenada, he contributed to and distributed antigovernment newspapers in support of a revolutionary movement. When secret police brutally crushed the organization, Campbell migrated to the United States and enlisted in the U.S. Marines. The revolutionary group eventually reorganized under the leadership of Maurice Bishop and overthrew the government in the 1979 revolution. Another violent coup in 1983 led to Prime Minister Bishop's execution and the U.S. invasion of Grenada. Among Grenada documents the U.S. military seized and stored at the National Archives is a passionate letter of congratulations to Prime Minister Bishop, written four years earlier and mailed from halfway around the world in Hawaii. It was signed Dunbar Campbell, U.S. Marines. Campbell is a certified scuba diver and runs an occasional marathon. He has a bachelor's degree in political science/economics and a master's degree in economics. He channels into his writings the dangers, secrets, and intrigues that shaped his life.
