About the Author

IAN URBINA is a reporter for The New York Times and has degrees in history from Georgetown and the University of Chicago. His writings, which range from domestic and foreign policy to commentary on everyday life, have appeared in the Los Angeles Times, The Guardian, and Harper's. He lives in Washington, D.C., with his family. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


Gripping and shocking by turns … Most of the book clips along with the pace of a thriller … stomach-churningly tense … as outlandish and as thrilling as a heist film, The Times

Just incredible -- Naomi Klein

Urbina has written an astonishing book about a world most of us don't even know exists. These are dispatches from the lawless ocean - of traffickers, slaves, heroes, gangsters, crooks and scoundrels - which will amaze, enthral and appal you -- Oliver Bullough, author of Moneyland

A riveting, terrifying, thrilling story of a netherworld that few people know about, and fewer will ever see. As Ian Urbina ventures into the darkest folds of the high seas, his courage―and his prose―are breathtaking' SUSAN CASEY, author of The Wave -- Susan Casey, author of The Wave

An outstanding investigation of a global criminal culture on the high seas … His rendezvous with contacts on at least one occasion was arranged for 100 miles offshore through mountainous waves … Little wonder the stories he tells have not been told before, Guardian --This text refers to the paperback edition.
