A Sea Captain's Adventures Battling Scoundrels and Pirates While Recovering Stolen Ships in the World's Most
"...I was a little surprised at the sudden thumping in my chest. If we were caught stealing the ship out, I knew a Venezuelan prison term could well be a life sentence..."
SEIZED throws open the hatch on a shadowy maritime world where third-world governments place exorbitant liens against ships, pirates snatch commercial vessels with impunity, crooks and con artists reign supreme on the docks and in the shipyards—and hapless owners rely on sea captain and “repo-man” Max Hardberger to recapture their ships and win justice on the high seas. More information, including excerpts, is available on
News. We're very pleased to announce that The Good Pirate,
a feature-length motion picture inspired by SEIZED and Max's
adventures, is currently being developed by Lonetree Entertainment and
Point Blank Productions. Lonetree principal Tony Eldridge is producing the upcoming
film The Equalizer with Mace Neufeld, producer of the Tom
Clancy/Jack Ryan films. Point Blank principals Joni Levin and Keith Clarke are a producer and co-writer of six-time Academy Award nominated
director Peter Weir’s upcoming epic, The Way Back, starring Colin
Farrell and Ed Harris. So, you'll soon see the adventures of
"Captain Max" on the big screen.
