Deadly Vacations - Author Reveals Cautionary Tales w/Top Ten Safe Travel Tips to Avoid a ‘Fatal Sunset'

I can't seem to get this book to read on my Nook, but its a must share. Summer is coming up and many people, young and old, will be traveling to their favorite places. We have to be smart about travel so that we'll come home safely.
Fatal Sunset: Deadly Vacations

This new book is currently topping at #1 as an Amazon New Release and at #2 for Travelogues -- and may land the author in the middle of a DATELINE investigation into travel gone awry. Despite the title, Fatal Sunset: Deadly Vacations, the author claims his newest book is not meant to do for vacations what ‘Jaws’ did for beaches.

It is not a book to scare anyone from traveling, only meant as a “buyer beware” because “people on vacation tend to engage in riskier activities than they are normally used to. Hence, the parasailing newlywed who plummeted hundreds of feet to her death on the last day of her honeymoon when her harness snapped in mid-air.

So I hope you might appreciate Nemcoff’s Top Ten Safe Travel Tips to Avoid a Fatal Sunset:
Tip 1: Never assume you have the same rights, protections and access to emergency services in other countries as you do in your own

Tip 2: Don't assume that video cameras are there to protect you - They are only there to protect the interests of the property owners who may have a different agenda when it comes to revealing what those cameras have seen

Tip 3: Be suspicious of anyone who takes too much interest in you or your family - If someone you really don't know invites you to join them in an excursion somewhere, don't be afraid to turn them down. There are worse things than offending someone who you will probably never see again

Tip 4: Being on vacation doesn't turn you into Superman - Don't try doing anything that may be more physically involved than something you would do at home

Tip 5: Always listen and be kind to your flight attendant - He or she has much more experience than you in dealing with onboard emergencies and situations. Their help could save your life! Check out the flight attendants at www.AirlineAmbassadors.com. They have busted human traffickers on at least three commercial flights coming into the USA.

Tip 6: Take the time to check out any attractions your children may use before you leave them unsupervised

Tip 7: Always let someone know where you're going and how long you'll be gone. If you're on a trip, make sure someone in your party knows when you'll be back and check in with them if those plans change

Tip 8: Just because there isn't a warning sign, doesn't mean there isn't danger - Use your common sense and/or double check your plans with someone who knows the lay of the land

Tip 9: Do your research - Any reputable company offering trips, excursions, tours will have a digital footprint on the Internet. Use Google to search for reviews before you use them

Tip 10: If going out of the country, check for government issued travel advisories for your destination. If the state department says someplace is unsafe, take heed

No one ever believes their dream vacation can instantly turn into a tragic nightmare...until it's too late.

Some tourists vanish without a trace. Over 170 people have disappeared from cruise ships around the world since 1995, several under very suspicious circumstances. Others have their lives senselessly stolen, like the 8-year old boy sucked into an unprotected pool drain at a major resort, leaving his mother crying out his name as security staff held her at gunpoint.
Or 22-year old Nolan Webster, denied proper medical care after being pulled unconscious from a Cancun resort pool, only to have his dead body left in plain view for hours and his parents billed for his room.

Vacations are meant to be joyous and fun. Sometimes terrible things happen unexpectedly. A parasailing newlywed plummets hundreds of feet to her death on the last day of her honeymoon when her harness snaps in mid-air. Hikers make a fatal plunge on an improperly-marked Kauai cliffside trail. And of course, there's every mother's nightmare: the disappearance of Natalee Holloway while on a high school graduation trip to Aruba with members of her senior class.

FATAL SUNSET, the latest exposé from award-winning and bestselling author Mark Yoshimoto Nemcoff is not meant to do for vacations what "Jaws" did for beaches. "I'm not trying to scare you from going on a trip. I'm revealing these hidden true stories in order to make sure you understand what danger lurks in between the sun and sand and that perfect getaway," explains Nemcoff, the writer behind Kindle bestsellers "The Death of Osama Bin Laden" and "Where's My F*cking Latte?", an insiders look at the world of Hollywood celebrity assistants that was not only featured on Access Hollywood but has spent over four years straight at the top of Amazon's top-selling chart in the categories of "Television" and "Movies."

"Sometimes travelers put themselves into situations beyond their limitations or worse, beyond their control," says Nemcoff. "People on vacation tend to engage in riskier activities than they are normally used to. Sometimes things can instantly turn deadly because you made a bad decision or were in the wrong place at the wrong time."

In addition to FATAL SUNSET's shocking stories of deadly shark attacks, drownings, suspicious encounters, unfortunate accidents and murder, there is one part of the book that still haunts Nemcoff. "I interviewed Nolan Webster's mom, Maureen. In the book she explains what it was like to get that terrible phone call about her son's death. It's something I think about every day."

"There's one piece of advice I've learned researching this book," tells Nemcoff. "Dare to be aware."
