Book of the Week – Dangerous Waters (John S. Burnett)


Dangerous Waters
Modern piracy and terror on the high seas
by John S. Burnett

While sailing alone one night in the shipping lanes across one of the busiest waterways in the world, John Burnett was attacked by pirates. Through sheer ingenuity and a little bit of luck, he survived, and his shocking firsthand experience became the inspiration for Dangerous Waters.

Today’s breed of pirates are not the colorful cutthroats painted by the history books. Unlike the romantic images from yesteryear of Captain Hook, Long John Silver, and Blackbeard, modern pirates can be local seamen looking for a quick score, highly trained guerrillas, rogue military units, or former seafarers recruited by sophisticated crime organizations.  Dangerous Waters is both a dauntless investigation and an epic, breathtaking modern tale of the sea.
