Hell on Grand Cayman

I’m currently hard at work getting the next Michael Flint novel ready for you – Ground Truth, which releases June 20th! To get you excited about this next thrilling installment to the Flint series, I wanted to share some fun research tidbits I came across. A rather big scene in Ground Truth was largely inspired by Hell in the Cayman Islands.

Hell is located in the district of West Bay, Grand Cayman. With such an unusual (and memorable!) name, you may be wondering why it’s called “Hell?” There is speculation as to how, exactly, the place got its name. Short, black limestone formations makes the area look almost sinister. Many suggest that when people came across it, they said, “This must be what hell looks like.” Others say that when you throw a pebble onto the limestone, it echoes for so long it seems as if the rock “fell into hell itself.” Another theory holds that sailors weren’t aware of the sharp limestone when it was underwater at high tide. They would sail into what looked like calm water, only to find themselves impaled on the rocks when the tide receeded.
Regardless of how it got its name, Hell has become quite the tourist attraction! There’s a red hell-themed post office where you can send “postcards from hell” and a gift shop with the devil passing out souvenirs that say things like “How the hell are you?” Overall, it’s a unique place, and I love how the locals have embraced the name by adding humorous ways to draw in tourism!
