An engaging account of the lawless oceans, where the criminals of all colors, from pirates to smugglers, poachers, ply their horrible trades. As addictive as the waters themselves, the Outlaw and the Ocean gets up close and personal with these dark figures, and shows that the underwater underworld is every bit as exciting as its land-bound counterpart. The Outlaws of the Ocean is a gripping, adrenalin-fuelled tour of a vast, lawless and violently criminal world that few have ever seen: the high seas. There are few remaining frontiers on our planet. But perhaps the wildest and least understood, are the world’s oceans: too big for the police, and no clear international authority, these immense regions of the treacherous water, are home to the unbridled extreme of human behavior and activity. Traffickers and smugglers, pirates and mercenaries, wreck burglars and repo men, watchful environmentalists and elusive poachers, seabound abortion-providers, a clandestine oil-dumper, chained slaves, and the cast-adrift illegal immigrants: drawing on five years of dangerous and fearless reporting, often hundreds of kilometres from the coast, Urbina introduces us to the inhabitants of this hidden world, and their risk-filled life. Through their stories of incredible courage and brutality, survival, and tragedy, he finds a world-spanning network of crime and exploitation that emanates from the fishing, oil and shipping industry, and in which the economies of the world rely on. Both a gripping adventure story and a beautiful expose, this unique work of reportage door is fully in view for the first time, the disturbing reality of a floating world that unites us all, a place where anyone can do anything, because no one is watching.
