Dead in the Water by Campbell and Chellel
A breathless account of yet another behind the scenes industry that shapes out world. The journalists have written a superb story of their investigation with brilliant pen portraits of all involved and a thriller-esque pace and plot development. One of the best books I've ever read.
Notes from the book are as follows:
Didn't know that most coasts or ports operated private salvage companies that jump at the chance at Maritime recovery in exchange for a share of the loot.
Didn't know that independent maritime surveyors existed around the world to review maritime problems on behalf of the insurers.
