Shameless speedboat killer Jack Shepherd is writing a book on Charlotte Brown’s death to 'cash in on crime'

SHAMELESS speedboat killer Jack Shepherd is writing his life story in a bid to cash in on his crime.

It will include his account of Charlotte Brown’s death.


Shepherd, 31, has already contacted publishers to gauge interest.

Sources close to him say he has written dozens of pages in his jail cell in ex-Soviet republic Georgia.

A pal said: “It’s been Jack’s ­ambition to have a book published.

"He thinks people would be interested in his version of events.

“If it’s successful, it might help to pay off his debts.”

No law bars criminals from publishing memoirs, but the Coroners and Justice Act 2009 allows courts to stop crooks cashing in.

He finally apologised to Charlotte’s parents but still shirks responsibility.
