Product description

Review

"A rich story of fake piracy and a global conspiracy...On one level, Dead in the Water is a masterpiece of explanatory journalism...Campbell and Chellel report and explain it masterfully, giving us an account that is both enlightening and thoroughly engaging.”
--Mark Bowden, The New York Times
 
“Triumphant…in part a well-written, well-paced thriller. But it is also a morality tale….At the heart of the story is at least one still unsolved murder…
Dead in the Water makes a compelling case that those handling Russian oligarchs’ riches are not the only ones overdue for a rethink.”
--Robert Wright, The Financial Times

Dead in the Water tells a startling tale of fraud and impunity at sea…exposes the dark, barnacle-encrusted goings-on beneath the shipping industry’s waterline…gripping.”
--The Economist

“In gripping style…[Campbell and Chellel] not only explain an esoteric corner of the world economy but relish the juicy contrasts between the Latin-quoting English barristers and the thuggish ship salvagers, between the squeamish insurance men and the resolute ex-coppers."
--The Wall Street Journal

"
Dead in the Water is an expertly constructed crime thriller—the sort of work of narrative nonfiction that seems destined for a film adaptation. It is also an unexpected case study in the way that fraud has permeated the global economy, undermining democratic governance by both feeding off and facilitating government corruption."
--The New Republic

“A jaw-dropping story that weaves its way, drone-like, through a dizzying variety of locales, from the deck of Brillante itself to the interior of a rusted Yemeni salvage tug to Lloyd’s of London’s 14-storey glass and mahogany atrium to the backstreets of Piraeus, Greece’s shipping capital, and points in between. When an author (or in this case, authors) can keep you eagerly turning the pages in an underwriters’ room, you know you’re in good hands.”
--The Globe and Mail

"Truly one of the most nail-biting, page-turning, terrifying true-crime books I've ever read."
--Nick Bilton, New York Times bestselling author of American Kingpin

“A triumph of investigative journalism.”
--Tom Wright, New York Times bestselling coauthor of Billion Dollar Whale
 
“A spectacular book about business, shipping, piracy and international intrigue that will make you never look at buying fast fashion or filling up your gas tank the same way again.”
--Katherine Howe, #1 New York Times bestselling coauthor of Vanderbilt: The Rise and Fall of an American Dynasty

“I read
Dead in the Water in one sitting, and I know it'll stay with me for a long time. It’s modern capitalism in a microcosm, and it’s written like a thriller."
--Oliver Bullough, author of Moneyland
 
"A brilliant exposé of corruption and malfeasance on the high seas. Campbell and Chellel reveal the darkest secrets of an industry that makes the modern world go round."
--Ian McGuire, author of The North Water and The Abstainer

"At once devastating and riveting,
Dead in the Water is a story of human tragedy and a skilled investigation of crime, money, and power. Matthew Campbell and Kit Chellel have written an urgent, essential book about the hidden relationships that underpin the global economy – and the brutal cost of getting in their way."
--Katie Engelhart, author of The Inevitable --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
