Product description


'Outlaws Inc is an explosive read, full of heart-thumping excitement and brilliant detective work which shines a light into the darkest corners of the world. This story of flying mercenaries and their secret role in the world we all live in is all the more terrifying for being true' --Sean Rayment, author of Bomb Hunters and Defence & Security Correspondent of the Sunday Telegraph

'A brilliantly told story. From the Eastern European crews, the action steadily progresses towards the larger players; it will dawn on everyone when they have reached the end of the book that these hardened airmen are mere expendable cogs in a giant machine. The laughs and action along the way make the book's overall sadness even more poignant. I will certainly buy a copy.' --Peter Danssaert, UN arms trade inspector & lead researcher, IPIS

'It's all very well to know that there is a global trade in illicit goods, and a small contingent of aviators willing to fly anything anywhere, but this is the only one inside story on the post-Soviet flyboys who represent such a key element in this hidden world. In all their boozy, devil-may-care glory, Matt Potter's unique book doesn't just offer up a fascinating tale of cratered runways, no-questions-asked drops, midnight flits, shell companies, hidden compartments and duct-taped aircraft of these men, it also tells us something about the modern world, and how for all society's efforts to make it regulated and respectable, there will always be those who thrive by finding ways to use, abuse and ignore the rules' --Dr Mark Galeotti, Academic Chair of the SCPS Center for Global Affairs, New York University, and author/editor of Organized Crime in History

'Outlaws Inc is the ultimate proof that the truth is stranger than fiction' --Brian Johnson-Thomas, journalist & member of the UN Security Council Panel of Experts

'A riveting homage to these extraordinary ex-Soviet planes and the dodgily heroic Russian and Ukrainian smugglers who fly and crash them' --John Sweeney, The Literary Review

'A chilling indictment of a worldwide failure of regulatory will' --Manchester Evening News

'Thrilling, provocative, and morally circumspect...a must read'

''s Jason Bourne meets James Bond, only it's really happening, and it's happening now'
--Andy Ross, America Now

Book Description
