"A genuinely terrifying insight into how execution squads now stalk
Baghdad targeting people who helped the coalition forces ... An
encounter with a suicide bomber is truly harrowing but Ashcroft
somehow manages to blend stark realism with gallows humour ... Edge
of the seat stuff." * News of the World *
"Readers who like big guns and adrenaline-buzzed adventure will love the second outing for Ashcroft and co-writer Clifford Thurlow ... Nuggets of political insight are woven through this page-turning adventure that is head and shoulders above the other military memoirs hitting the shelves" * London Lite *
