Review

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 filmThe 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

Not just a stunning read, this book is a gripping chronicle of the watery wild west and it shows us―frankly unlike anything I've read before―how the vast ocean has become a danger zone, and ultimately how we all pay a price for this mayhem and mistreatment' JOHN KERRY, former Secretary of State and founder of the Our Ocean Conference -- John Kerry, former Secretary of State and founder of the Our Ocean Conference

Transcendent, rendering a complex portrait of an unseen and disturbing world. Urbina pursues a depth of reportage that’s rare because of the guts and diligence it requires ... The result is not just a fascinating read, but a truly important document. It is also a master class in journalism" New York TimesNew York Times

Revelatory … there is no lack of danger in Urbina’s travels; impressively, he never shies away from it … gripping … this drama is riveting, but so is the endemic abuse Urbina finds … if you want to be a crook, there is no better place to do it than at sea … the laxness of enforcement makes Urbina’s investigations essential -- Rose George ― New Statesman

Incredible, readable, riveting -- Sam Walker ― Wall Street Journal

It’s this kind of hard-assed reporting that can ultimately change the world for the better -- Chris Dixon ― Scuttlefish

You simply have to read this -- Karen Tumulty ― Washington Post

Staggering -- Oliver Franklin-Walles ― Wired --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Book Description

A riveting, adrenalin-fuelled tour of the unbridled extremes of human behaviour and activity in that vast, lawless and rampantly criminal world that few have ever seen- the high seas. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
