Read the press release for SEIZED

"... it's a rollicking ride ... Hardberger tells a great story [and] writes with genuine skill ..." The Washington Post

In this new sensational memoir, Capt. Max Hardberger recounts his adventures repossessing ships and sneaking them out of lawless, third-world countries, often under threat of death or imprisonment. His journeys lead him from corrupt ports in the Caribbean to the ice-bound docks of Vladivostok. His adventures in rescuing ships pit him against a rogue’s gallery of antagonists, including Haitian rebels, modern-day Caribbean pirates, and Russian mobsters. SEIZED is an action-packed thrill ride through the criminal underworld of shipping.
