Ken Miller knows what it’s like when government power and private interest come together. Working in politics and with a Fortune 100 multi-national corporation, he’s seen what can happen first-hand. That’s what lends such thrilling credibility to his debut novel Langata Rules: Pirates at Lat 10. The book reads like today’s news, detailing the political, business and intelligence implications of a pirate attack off the Horn of Africa. The pirates seize the Odessa, a British merchant ship with seemingly innocent cargo, and launch a desperate race among pirates, warlords, rebel insurgents, government agents, and shadowy oil interests. Will the ship's real cargo instigate another catastrophe in the Horn of Africa? Have the double-crossers been double-crossed? And just who are the proverbial bad-guys in this page-turning adventure about business, politics, and crime? “When nation states fail, chaos and lawlessness follow. And in our interconnected world the impact of this chaos and lawlessness can quickly spread to touch the lives of people thousands of miles away” begins the foreword by Rep. Adam Smith, Chair of the House Sub-Committee on Terrorism, Unconventional Threats and Capabilities as he details a strategy for intervention in failed states. Ken Miller studied political science at the University of California Santa Barbara and has worked on national and local political campaigns for over 20 years. Most recently he was public affairs planning director for a Fortune 100 multi-national company. Former national chair of the American Leadership Forum, Ken has spoken on corporate reputation and social responsibility at conferences in Europe and across North America and his writing has appeared in professional journals and in the Washington Post. Ken is sharing royalties from Langata Rules with Fabric of Life, an international non-profit that funds micro-enterprise for young women and girls in Africa.The second book in the Drew Alexander series
