Escape from Baghdad!

by Saad Z. Hossain

Category: Fiction

Dagr, a former university professor, and Kinza, a small-time thug, are thrown together in the chaos of the Iraq war. As the US Marines bumble around destroying their country, the two friends do everything in their power to stay alive, an increasingly impossible task as Baghdad collapses around them. And then their luck begins to turn. They capture Captain Hamid, the star torturer of Saddam Hussein, who promises them a fortune in gold if they smuggle him out of Baghdad. Helped by a corrupt US Marine, Private Hoffman, they begin their escape, when unexpectedly things get even more crazily complicated…

A unique blend of humour, satire, fantasy, mystery and mythology that rattles along at the pace of a belt-fed burst of machinegun fire from an Apache gunship, Escape from Baghdad! is an exhilarating debut.
