Link Found Between Hurricanes and 3,500 Year-Old Clay Disk

Bonita Springs, FL (PressExposure) June 04, 2009 -- In his latest fiction novel ‘Descent The R. Connors Story’ Simon Cleveland reveals the answers to these riddles as he connects Phaistos Disk’s mysterious symbols to Hurricane Ivan's devastating path.

Roy Connors, the protagonist of the novel, is consultant for a top technology company and the quintessential pursuer of the American dream. Through sheer perseverance Roy gains a unique perspective on life. When his only entrusted friend falls in love with a hot brunette, Roy's stressful life suddenly spirals out of control. Obsessed with the ancient symbols carved on the Phaistos disk and ridden by jealousy, Roy follows the happy couple to their Cayman Island retreat where the fates of the three collide with the arrival of the deadliest hurricane in the islands' history.

Descent The R. Connors Story is a psychological suspense delivering a rare glimpse into the minds of identity-shattered individuals. Written in a vibrant style it reconciles the mysteries of self, sexual duality, and the raw forces of Nature.

Says Evelyn David, author of Murder Takes The Cake, “DESCENT is a dark mystery buried in layers of memory, allegory, emotional turmoil, and the possibility that the hero's reality is just another's delusion. A cross between the Twilight Zone and Kafka's Metamorphosis, Simon Cleveland's DESCENT takes the reader on a bizarre ride into the nether regions of one man's mind.”

She adds, “You won't soon forget this novel!”

Descent The R. Connors Story is Simon Cleveland’s third book. His debut novel ‘The Basenji Revelation’ won the critics with its engaging plot and solid character development. Simon Cleveland’s second book, a nonfiction work entitled ‘Existential Meditation’ explored the concepts of immortality and the meaning of life. Critics dubbed it bold, courageous and controversial.

Simon Cleveland is a member of the National Writers Union and of the ‘Amazon-Vine’ literary circle. He is a graduate of George Mason and The George Washington Universities. An avid reader of psychological suspense, historical, esoteric and philosophical literature, he resides in Florida with his wife Marisa.
