For Captain Adams, the author of “CORRUPTION IN PARADISE,” everyone dreams, but only a few get the chance to fulfill them. When Adams finally got the opportunity of constructing a floating bar in a little island in the Caribbean called Goatan, he did everything he could to make the project a success. In his book, he shares the three fruitful years he spent on the floating bar—and the few days it took for the authorities to destroy it.

A revelatory account, “CORRUPTION IN PARADISE” tells the story of Captain Adams, a man who went to the stunning islands of the Caribbean to follow his dream, only to watch it crumble before his very eyes. After the construction of his floating bar in 2009, it immediately rose to popularity and became the talk of the town. People from different places flocked to the bar to witness its splendor. Everything was perfect until one day, the mayor refused to renew the bar’s permit due to the captain’s alleged violation of some local policies. A series of incidents consequently occurred which resulted in the bar’s closure.

Audaciously written, “CORRUPTION IN PARADISE” consists of Adams’ weekly logbook entries and his correspondences with the authorities. It is a true-life story that deals with jealousy, envy, greed, corruption, racism and many more.

The book teaches readers to pursue their dreams but never to compromise their values and judgment even if it means losing everything they have. Through the captain’s story, it shares the dangers of corruption and veers readers away from it by encouraging them to leave behind material possessions in search of inner peace, balance and harmony.
