Mr. Sloan’s first two books: Bratva’s Rose Tattoo (the book tells the story on how an Air Force transport plane, ferrying the president’s limousine and scores of Secret Service, Marine and Air Force personnel, goes missing over Saudi Arabia) and Guardians of Democracy, 150th Anniversary of the U.S. Secret Service, raising over eighty thousand dollars for non-profits.
His third book, Bratva’s Revenge, will serve to raise awareness and financial support for the Navy SEALFoundation’s programs to assist those who suffer from traumatic brain injuries due to blasts (TBIb). Here’s a short storyline: “The Bratva grieves for the loss of their leader, slain anonymously by a sniper’s single shot to the head. Young Belov is the newly installed mob chieftain, and seeks to kill the person he believes orchestrated his father’s execution. Retired Secret Service Director, Larry Cassell, is in his sights. Belov orders his Bratva operatives to kidnap Cassell’s daughter and son. They are to be used as pawns to draw Director Cassell into a trap, and inflict upon him a slow, painful death. He wants revenge. Thrust back into the mix are Will Strain, a Coast Guard Captain, and his wife, Carly, the newly installed Special Agent in Charge of the Secret Service’s Miami Office. While both survived a previous Bratva’s attempt to use Will’s wife as leverage in an international hostage negotiation, there is no indication that Belov’s direction of interest is to target Carly. This does not go well, and revenge is sweet.”
