Lifting the Lid On Modern Piracy
A non fiction book by

 
 
Piracy. Although often associated with the antiquated figures of picture books and blockbuster films, modern-day pirates are a very real threat, terrorizing our seas and claiming lives.

'Even as you read these lines, somewhere on the high seas mariners are being attacked by armed pirates, their faces masked, their weapons deadly.' So begins Douglas Stewart's introduction to the unimaginably dangerous world of modern piracy. Attackers are armed with rocket-launchers and automatic machine guns, and their victims may be murdered, tortured, seized as hostages, or simply dumped overboard.

Perhaps most worrying of all is the recent trend for use of these ill-gotten gains to fund international terrorism. Difficult to police and on the rise, Stewart lifts the lid on a side to piracy that is often underrepresented in the media, but directly affecting the reign of terror we are all affected by.

Terror at Sea tells of disappearing phantom ships and of a cigarette scam run by a fraudster from New Jersey, the story of MV Estonia and many other disasters at sea. As it enters the mysterious world of the Triads, some of the most bloody, cunning and lucrative attacks, frauds and schemes of the past twenty years are brought to the page in an exciting and refreshing way.
