FROM THE BACK COVER:
“I promise I will never join the military. I will deal drugs instead. I will steal. I will go to jail. Whatever it takes to survive, I will do, except join the armed forces.”
So goes the oath that Pete’s radical father forced him to take in 2004, but just a few years later, escaping jail by taking advantage of the newly signed “Cons-to-Soldiers” bill, Pete finds himself in the middle of the Iraq War.
Thousands of miles away, an innocent Moroccan boy named Jamil is kidnapped and sold by bandits who collect bounties for capturing suspected terrorists.
Together the two young men descend into the lawless world of unsupervised military contractors and secret prisons, caught in the profiteering born from the War on Terror, where the surreal becomes horrifyingly real.
Both end up fighting a losing battle to retain their humanity as they learn that sometimes the only hope of escaping a twisted situation is to become more twisted.
