9780099493532: Desert Claw (Quick Read)

Present day Iraq: A country torn apart by war and anarchy. Thieves roam the streets. People are being killed in broad daylight. Security is non-existent. And now, terrorists have seized a Van Gogh painting worth £25 million from one of Saddam’s palaces. They are offering it to the highest bidder. The painting’s original owner, a Kuwaiti prince, from whom it was seized during Iraq’s occupation of Kuwait in the First Gulf War, has asked for the British Government’s help in retrieving it. They owe the Prince a favour for backing them during the Iraq War, so they agree to help. But rather than agreeing to pay the terrorists’ ransom — which they fear will be pumped into funding terrorist operations across the world — Her Majesty’s Government decides to send in a team of hardened ex-Special Forces, led by ex-SAS hero Mick Kilbride and his sidekick “East End” Eddie.

Sent undercover in a deniable operation called Desert Claw, their brief is simple: retrieve the painting and eliminate the terrorists at the earliest possible opportunity. The mission sounds simple enough. But as Mick and his team are drawn into a dark and violent world, things are not always as they seem. And in the final climactic scene, a horrible and shocking truth awaits the men.
