Item Details

Iraq, 2005. Seven mercenaries hear an enticing rumor: somewhere, in the swirling desert sands, lies an abandoned Republican Guard convoy containing millions of pounds of Saddam's gold. The mercenaries form an unlikely crew of battle-scarred privateers, killers and thieves, veterans of a dozen war zones, each of them eager to make one last score before their luck runs out. After liberating the sole surviving guard member from U.S. capture, the team makes its way to the ancient ruins where the convoy was last seen. Although all seems eerily quiet and deserted when they arrive, the men soon find themselves caught in a desperate battle for their lives, confronted by greed, betrayal, and an army that won't stay dead.--From cover p. [2]

Zombie movie/book buffs: this is not to be missed. A superbly crafted story of completely plausible series of events with ultra-realistic scenarios firmly embedded in real events. Taut, fast and loads of fun.
