Pirates. To many, the word conjures up images of swashbucklers in the eighteenth century. The very idea that pirates might still ply the seas today seems preposterous and far-fetched. But pirates most definitely still exist. And as "Terror On the Seas" shows, their violent activities on the other side of the glove can have wide-reaching effects-- whether on our economy or the war on terror.

Daniel Sekulich takes readers on an eye-opening voyage into the world of high seas piracy, a multinational, multibillion-dollar enterprise controlled by organized crime syndicates and local warlords. Sekulich sails through some of the most dangerous waters on the planet to chronicle this threat to national and international security. He meets with victims of attacks, those fighting the perils, and even pirates themselves.

"Terror on the Seas "tells an explosive story of modern piracy, one that's costing over $25 billion a year to battle and that poses the risks of environmental disaster, economic chaos, and holy war.
