Overview

Recruited into SHADE, an elite, covert group formed by the U.S. military, Rollie Waters must locate and retrieve the countless millions taken from Saddam’s cache during the Iraq War and shipped home in the coffins of dead soldiers. But a sniper attack forces Rollie undercover to solve the riddle of the graves and to apprehend the puppet master behind the plot.

It’s a quest that reaches from the Texas digs of the self-proclaimed King of Kurdistan to the treacherous, labyrinthine streets of Erbil, Iraq, and into the arms of an enigmatic woman with impenetrable motives. Now more spy than soldier, Waters must uncover the man pulling the strings behind a backdrop of murder, deceit, and stolen fortune….

Praise

Praise for David Rich and the Rollie Waters novels

“Rollie Waters is as tough as Reacher, clever as Bourne, and cool as Bond. I’m addicted.” —Howard Blum, Edgar Award–winning and New York Times bestselling author

“Action, dead bodies, tribal enmities, and blood politics. It all adds up to a fog of menace, and the nimble Rich keeps the reader guessing.”—Booklist

“A rapid fire read, so make sure you’re locked and loaded when you start because two-hundred and ninety-nine pages are going to fly by in this kinetic and compelling burst of a book.”—Craig Johnson, New York Times bestselling author of the Walt Longmire Mysteries

“From the first bullet to the last, Middle Man is Ludlum-style action at its best. After reading it straight through, I’m now looking forward to Lieutenant Rollie Waters’ next assignment.”—Ace Atkins, New York Times bestselling author of The Broken Places

“Rich is a film writer, with a firm grip on pacing, always ready to stop and flesh out characters and then to pull a knife and draw a little blood. Waters is the perfect edgy, flawed hero…Above average action-adventure with a touch of noir. This one is good fun.”—Kirkus Reviews

“We follow a labyrinth of violence, deceit, and villainy in which the good guy wins, but the bad guy may reappear later. Lots of fun.”—Library Journal

“Busts right out of the chute and never stops bucking. It’s a rocket ride and a terrific debut that will leave the reader shaken and gasping for air.”—C. J. Box, New York Times bestselling author of The Highway

“A stylish, gritty, breakneck tale, Caravan of Thieves had me guessing the whole way. David Rich’s terse, hard-boiled prose keeps the story moving faster than a wanted criminal. And the ending is a stunner! Highly recommended!”—Christopher Reich, New York Times bestselling author of The Prince of Risk

“First page through to the last, Caravan of Thieves was an incredibly entertaining escape and worth every minute.”—Taylor Stevens, New York Times bestselling author of The Doll

“Everything a reader could desire from a thriller—breakneck pacing, well-rendered action scenes, a vivid setting, a compelling and complex hero, and endless twists. As with the best thrillers, what lifts it above the pack is clean prose and depth of character, a sense that the sins of the past weigh heavily on the present.”—Michael Koryta, Edgar Award–nominated author of The Prophet

“[For] readers with a taste for Bourne-level action.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Builds a labyrinth of deception spanning the deserts of the American Southwest to the deserts of Afghanistan—one part noir thriller, one part father-son tale, and one part adventure saga. Prepare to be ensnared.”—T. Jefferson Parker, national bestselling author of The Famous and the Dead

Caravan of Thieves has everything a good thriller needs.”—Booklist

“Like le Carré’s A Perfect Spy…Rich tosses in both humor and surprising plot twists.”—Publishers Weekly
