Bob Branco Reading August 13 at 6:30 PM at the Rockport Public LIbrary

Local author and retired U.S. Navy Captain Bob Branco will present his Somali pirate thriller at an author event on Wednesday August 13, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. at the Rockport Public Library at One Limerock Street in Rockport.  Branco will talk about his new book, “Strike From the Deep,” and in a slide show presentation relate a summary of his 25 years of Navy service in 42 countries all over the world

This story involves Somali pirates who capture giant oil and gas tankers off the coast of east Africa and Arabia and hold them for record ransom.  When these tankers go missing in the middle of the night the international task force faces a new mystery of war-at-sea.

 

A fascinating take on the modern scourge of maritime piracy, written by someone who’s spent years combating this ugly business; this one’s ripped from tomorrow’s headlines.

—P.T. Deutermann, Author of Pacific Glory


Written by a guy who sailed many oceans, this mystery thriller at sea hurls us back to the Cold War.

—Justin Scott-Paul Garrison, Author of The Shipkiller
