Her lover Jed Bradley is one of the SAS's toughest young agents, dropped behind enemy lines in the build-up to the Iraq War to find the truth about Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction. Caught in the midst of a global power play, Nick and Jed must fight their way through a war-ravaged Iraq as the regime of Saddam Hussein collapses around them.
