"The 2015 Readers' Favorite International Book Award Contest features thousands of contestants from over a dozen countries. American (Greensboro, North Carolina) true crime author MayCay Beeler has placed in this year’s contest.
“Readers’ Favorite is proud to announce that Buccaneer, the Provocative Odyssey of Jack Reed- Adventurer, Drug Smuggler and Pilot Extraordinaire by MayCay Beeler and Jack Carlton Reed is a Finalist in the Non-Fiction - Biography category in our 2015 International Book Award Contest.”
Buccaneer is the gripping international true crime tale about a historic criminal case with a surprising North Carolina connection. When Greensboro Pilot/Journalist MayCay Beeler contacted convicted cocaine cartel pilot Jack Reed in prison for research on a documentary she was producing, she had no idea she would become his co-author and a character in this infamous inmate’s life story and twist of fate ending.
“He refused to talk to cops and press- until me. In our book, which was a collaborative work at the end of Reed’s life, Reed breaks his silence about his alleged role in Pablo Escobar’s Medellin Drug Cartel and his stunning punishment for refusing to snitch on best friend/drug lord, Carlos Lehder, in the courtroom. This biography features shocking judicial misconduct, the longest running drug trial in U.S. History, and the first drug lord extradited to the United States. It’s a pilot's provocative journey from all-American boy to drug smuggler to Robinson Crusoe then prison inmate. Jack Reed was a nonviolent offender who became the victim of a tragic judicial sentencing mistake. His true story will stun you. It has never been given to any other journalist.”- MayCay Beeler
