(From the publisher):
Gus Peake should have kept his job and stayed home, but an old family debt of friendship draws him to the remote wastes of Northern Iraq and to a savage forgotten war between Kurdish guerillias and Saddam Hussein's Military strength.
To the brutal, no-quarter combat, Peake can bring skills he learned as a marksman. But there is no room for mistakes on the field of battle and he must quickly learn to deal out random death at long distance and help the guerillias to treach their goal, the city of Kirkuk, the old capital of the Kurdish people.
From Baghdad, Iraq sends Major Karim Aziz, the most dedicated and professional sniper in Saddam's army. For both men their duel, from which only one can walk away, becomes an obsession. And it will only take one shot, echoing in the mountains and valleys to settle the score...
