"Seized" by Max Hardberger

Adventure on the high seas and in dangerous ports. Clandestine meetings and plans. Max Hardberger writes the true story of some of his adventures regaining control of seized ships. Each chapter gives details relating to a new adventure, making the book easy to read. At times you will wonder who are the good and bad guys, wondering is prison or death awaits the rescuers. The characters and danger are real, but many of their names have been changed to protect them.

I had the opportunity to read this book as part of Barnes & Noble’s Sneak Peek group. It was fascinating to talk with Mr. Hardberger and to learn things about ships, ports, and international laws. There are times when there seems to be too much information, but that doesn't detract too much from the story. This is a great book for discussion groups, and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading true stories filled with courage and danger. I anxiously await the next installment!
