Publisher's Summary

What would a mad man do with a real weapon of mass destruction? Simple. He would use it. In the near future, that is exactly what has happened.

Derek Martell finds himself on a contract job in Iraq when the newly formed Islamic Caliphate unleashes a genetic weapon - to devastating effect.

Eighty percent of the non-Arab global population is wiped out overnight. As Derek and his crew struggle to escape the Middle East ahead of an expected nuclear counterstrike, questions plague him. Why are military personnel seemingly unaffected? How far-reaching is the weapon? And is there still a United States to return to?

With a fist full of bullets and a crew of misfits, Derek has a plane to steal - as long as he can find a pilot in this god-forsaken hell hole.

I chose this one because.

Of a negative review another listener submitted.He seemed to be offended by this audio book.
That review made this adventure more enjoyable.. I highly recommend this to anyone who does
not require a big fluffy pillow when seated.

Literary Crack Cocaine

This book was very entertaining. Anyone in law enforcement, military or EMS will definitely appreciate this books humor. Very exciting and written from a unique perspective that spares the reader from cheesyness. I highly recommend this book.

Awesomely irreverent and spoken like a real person

One of the most realistic dialogues I've listened to. Even had the lingo down. The story itself was a great escape from sands of Iraq during the caliphate's biowar attack. Great characters, great narration. Highly recommend.

Oddly Amazing

Every one of his books is action put into words. This guy has been in the sh*t or a junky for understanding it. It's a rollercoaster of real world puckering ramped up with reasonably possible scenarios, finally dropping you on "figure it out" execution.
Hell fun, Fast paced. Great story, writing and narration. More!

Hilarious

Combat story told in a way any military or law enforcement will relate to and laugh along with. Military humor woven through a tale of escape from overrun Middle East terrain. A mysterious virus is on the rampage in the rest of the world. No help coming for contractors caught behind enemy lines.

Easy read

Story entertaining, much a bit stereotypical redneck grunt but not unbearable. Not my favourite military fic but a good read. Unlike many other cringe-worthy reads currently available, this didn't leave me thinking how on earth someone managed to get it published. Will read a sequel (think there is one).
