Description

The Brutal Seas has been described as “the Benchmark on Crime at Sea.” Bringing to life some of the great crimes of the past thirty years by dramatic descriptions of the murderous brutality of present-day pirates, the book incorporates insight from Eric Ellen who was hailed as the foremost authority on piracy.

Ellen, a former Chief Constable and founder of the ICC International Maritime Bureau, believed in taking on the organised criminals (like the Triads) whose attacks have cost the wider community hundreds of millions ― besides a shocking toll of death and injury.

Attacks on cruise-ships, supertankers, cargo ships and small craft like Sir Peter Blake‛s yacht on which he was murdered in Brazil, are all covered including new material showing how belatedly a fightback of sorts is seeking to curb the almost uncontrollable piracy, kidnap and ransom from Somalia, its pirates and terrorists.

 Due to a Spambomb attack, our contact form is having issues!  

A notification about our contact form inquiries:  A few weeks back,  we endured a spam-bomb attack.  We received literally tens of thousands of emails, via our contact form on the CONTACT page.  Our web guys leapt into action, and put in a "ReCaptcha" element, to try to stop the spam bombs.   And it worked, hooray. However, it apparently also caused a glitch, in which we have NOT received all the submitted inquiries, from real customers and prospective customers. We apologize for this and we're in the process of fixing it. In the meantime, if you do not hear from us same-day, or at the absolute latest, within 24 hours, please email us directly, not using the CONTACT form, but the email address on our CONTACT page in the "How to Reach Us" column, thank you. We apologize for any inconvenience and we hope it's all resolved shortly. 

Thank you for your understanding.
