To change because they have inherited a very important prisoner the star torturer of Hussein’s recently collapsed regime Captain Hamid who promises them untold riches if they smuggle him out of BaghdadWith the heat on and nothing left for them in Baghdad they enlist the help of Private Hoffman their partner in crime and a US Marine In the chaos of a city without rule getting ou. ‘Escape from Baghdad’ is another book that I have no memory of deciding to read yet enjoyed a lot I often forget how or where I found out about a book because it doesn’t take much to intrigue me I’ve read novels just because they had a nice cover and make no apologies for it Anyway here we have a gruesome dark comedy of the second Ira War with shades of Generation Kill Devil Dogs Iceman Captain America and the New Face of American War one of my favourite books and Buffalo Soldiers adapted into one of my favourite films In contrast to both of those however this centres on a trio of Irais rather than American soldiers The plots is febrile violent and picaresue freuently going off on bizarre tangents Latterly it coalesces around a mysterious supernatural conspiracy which like everything else in Ira is thrown into chaos by the American invasion There are some vivid and spectacular action scenes as well as moments of genuine creepiness I found it consistently funny because I'm very fond of wartime dark comedy The supernatural stuff was a little hit and miss although I loved the Furies The juxtapositions of American consumerism and ancient mysticism amid urban collapse are very effective There isn’t a great deal of character development amid the violent mayhem but it’s definitely refreshing to see the perspective of the invaded rather than the invaders There are flashes of nihilistic irony worthy of Catch 22 in what is essentially a violent thriller It could and should be made into an excellent movie

characters Escape from Baghdad!

Escape from BaghdadT of Baghdad is no easy task and when they become embroiled in a mystery surrounding an ancient watch that doesn’t tell time nothing will ever be the same With a satiric eye firmly cast on the absurdity of human violence Escape from Baghdad features shades of Catch 22 and Three Kings while giving voice ribald humor and firepower to to people often referred to as collateral dama. Dagr is a former economics professor and Kinza is a street thug who have captured Saddam Hussein’s head torturer who teases a hidden bunker in Mosul filled with riches Set during the American occupation of Ira the promise of riches sets this trio on a path that leads them to blood soaked mayhem ancient cults mythical forces and an American soldier that’s either insanely brilliant or patently idiotic This is a country sitting on millennia of history that has shaped it well before American soldiers left their bootprints in the sand It is a chaotic monstrous absurd tragic and frankly hilarious pulpy yarn It left me breathless in its viciousness and surprised me constantly with each new development
