David Rich--whose acclaimed debut, "Caravan of Thieves," drew comparisons to Elmore Leonard, Robert Ludlum, and John le Carre--returns with a crime thriller featuring Lieutenant Rollie Waters. Recruited into SHADE, the elite, covert group formed by the U.S. military, Rollie Waters must locate and retrieve the countless millions taken from Saddam's cache during the Iraq War and shipped home in the coffins of dead soldiers. But when a sniper attacks the team, Rollie is forced to go undercover to solve the riddle of the graves and to apprehend the puppet master behind the whole plot. Rollie's own father, inveterate liar and charming con artist Dan Waters, was killed attempting to steal the first $25 million after stumbling across the conspiracy involving powerful military officers, would-be kings, and the very general who nearly destroyed Rollie during his last tour in Afghanistan. Rollie's undercover quest takes him from Houston and the self-proclaimed king of Kurdistan, to the treacherous, labyrinthine streets of Erbil, Iraq, and into the arms of a stunning, enigmatic woman whose motives he can't discern. As a confirmed citizen of the fog, now more spy than soldier, Waters must uncover the man pulling the strings behind a backdrop of murder, deceit, and stolen fortune--before he disappears forever into the mist.show more

Review quote

""Caravan of Thieves "busts right out of the chute and never stops bucking. It's a rocket-ride and a terrific debut that will leave the reader shaken and gasping for air." --C.J. Box, "New York Times "bestselling author of "Force of Nature" "David Rich's terse, hard-boiled prose keeps the story moving faster than a wanted criminal. And the ending is a stunner! Highly recommended!" --Christopher Reich, "New York"" Times" bestselling author of "Rules of Betrayal" "First page through to the last, "Caravan of Thieves "was an incredibly entertaining escape and worth every minute." --Taylor Stevens, "New York"" Times "bestselling author of "The Informationist" "As with the best thrillers, what lifts ["Caravan of Thieves"] above the pack is clean prose and depth of character, a sense that the sins of the past weigh heavily on the present. David Rich is off to a fine start, and will be a writer to watch." --Michael Koryta, Edgar-nominated author of "The Ridge" "A solid debut from a gifted storyteller." --T. Jefferson Parker, author of "The Jaguar"show more
