Publisher Comments:

Captain Richard Phillips knew the pirates were dangerous. And yet, it was originally just another day on the job for the fifty-three-uear old captain of the Maersk Alabama, the United States-flagged cargo ship that was carrying food and other agricultural materials for the World Food Program. That all changed when armed Somali pirates boarded the ship. But they didn't expect the sailors to fight back nor did they plan for Captain Phillips to end up as a hostage in the stead of his ship and crew, and ultimately, they didn't bargain on the tough-as-nails everyman they took on board their tiny craft. After the tense fie-day stand-off-including mock executions, deadly heat, and an escalating battle of wills-ended in a daring high-seas rescue, Captain Phillips said, It never ends like this. And he's right.

Untitled tells the dramatic life-and-death tale of the Vermont native who, in April of 2008, was held captive on a tiny lifeboat off Somalia's anarchic, gun-plagued shores.
