A real-life thriller--the true story of the unheralded American who brought the Barbary Pirates to their knees. In an attempt to stop the legendary Barbary Pirates of North Africa from hijacking American ships, William Eaton set out on a secret mission to overthrow the government of Tripoli. The operation was sanctioned by President Thomas Jefferson, who at the last moment grew wary of "intermeddling" in a foreign government and sent Eaton off without proper national support. Short on supplies, given very little money and only a few men, Eaton and his mission seemed doomed from the start. He triumphed against all odds, recruited a band of European mercenaries in Alexandria, and led them on a march across the Libyan Desert. Once in Tripoli, the ragtag army defeated the local troops and successfully captured Derne, laying the groundwork for the demise of the Barbary Pirates. Now, Richard Zacks brings this important story of America's first overseas covert op to life.

After his bodyguards double-cross him, journalist Colin Freeman finds himself captured by Somali pirates, beginning a nightmare 40 days in the hands of some of the most dangerous men in the world. It is a terrifying experience - the gang's hideout is attacked by rival pirates, Freeman is threatened with being handed over to Islamists who wish to execute him and he constantly fears death at the hands of his constantly drug-addled captors. But he survives - thinner, greyer and wiser - to tell the tale of an astonishing adventure in a surprisingly funny and fond way.

2012 reiste der deutsch-amerikanische Journalist Michael Scott Moore nach Westafrika, um über Piraten zu recherchieren, denen in Hamburg der Prozess gemacht wurde. In Somalia wird er – bittere Ironie des Schicksals – selbst entführt und anschließend fast drei Jahre lang an verschiedenen Orten gefangen gehalten. Aber Moore bleibt stark, überlebt Gewalt, Hunger, Isolation und Terror durch IS und Al-Shabaab. Nach 977 Tagen und Zahlung von 1,6 Mio. Dollar Lösegeld kommt er frei. Dies ist die packende Schilderung seiner Entführung – eine mentale Achterbahnfahrt, aber auch eine brilliante Reportage mit Einblicken in eine unbekannte Welt. Moore schafft es, trotz seiner traumatischen Erlebnisse ein differenziertes Bild des Islam zu zeichnen und auch den Blick auf die politischen, wirtschaftlichen und religiösen Hintergründe seiner Entführung nicht zu verlieren.
