About the Author
Joshua Mowll has worked as a graphic artist for the MAIL ON SUNDAY since 1994. During that time he has illustrated and drawn everything from space flights, medical procedures, and airplane crashes to ancient pyramid theories, invasions, and laser-guided weaponry. Of Southeast Asian pirates, one of the plot elements in OPERATION RED JERICHO, he says, "The word pirates immediately conjures up images of the Caribbean, Blackbeard, and buried treasure. But for sheer scale and professionalism, Chinese and Southeast Asian piracy has a much longer and more notorious history." Joshua Mowll lives in London. OPERATION RED JERICHO is his first book.
