About This Book

The Singapore-owned and Malaysia-registered tanker MT Petro Ranger was captured by pirates in the South China Sea on 17 April 1998. The Australian captain gives a clear account of his 14 days as a captive, his escape to the Chinese Marine Police and subsequent confinement in Haikou City, Hainan. The story is told in measured tones and as the jigsaw is pieced together, the reader realises, as did the Captain, that an intricate web of collusion lay behind the events related. Important commercial, international and security issues are raised.
