Review

"Perfect summer pool-side escapism" Daily Mail "An absolute belter of an adventure/thriller" ETLife "Cobra Gold is a fast moving story built around the biggest bank robbery the world has ever seen. The story starts with a highly professional bank-heist in Beirut, in 1976. The SAS team that breaks in are faced with a prize of staggering and unexpected proportions, then as courage, greed, opportunism and recklessness starts to unfold you get sucked into the problems of trying to hide, let alone dispose of a heavy and cumbersome mountain of gold valued at $50million. With an eye to technical accuracy, which is such a feature of Damien's writing, the tale finally brings us to the modern day. The terrorist organization that claims ownership of the gold and the authorities that send the team in to this most covert of covert operations are formidable adversaries and throwing them off the trail is no easy matter. This is modern drama at its best with Damien Lewis in top form" Compass Magazine "Incredible" FHM --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

1976, war-torn Beirut. In a breathtaking act of daring, an unknown band of armed men blast their way into the Imperial Bank of Beirut. Over the next 48 hours they load up three trucks with gold bullion, and the raiders and the loot disappear forever.

Two weeks earlier, a young SAS Major newly arrived in The Regiment had tasked his men with scoping out just such a Beirut bank robbery – strictly as an exercise only. But when SAS veteran Luke Kilbride presented his plan for the heist, the Major tore it apart.

Kilbride and his men decided to prove the Major wrong.

But whilst the heist went like clockwork, that was just the start of things going badly wrong for Kilbride and his unit. Forced into hiding the loot, they make a quick getaway.

Now, Kilbride and his men are planning their return. But a powerful and ruthless enemy is hell bent on reaching the gold first. So begins a race against time to retrieve the loot before the deadly Black Assassins can catch up with them.

By Robert J. Mahaney on May 10, 2008
Format: Hardcover
Cobra Gold is a suspenseful, gripping narrative with unexpected twists and turns which will keep you hooked till the climax. Damien Lewis gives the SAS and special operations warriors an authentic feel with pulse-based action that surpasses his previous fine work. An intelligent analysis of one of the great bank robberies of all time carried out with such precision and split-second timing it could only have been planned and executed by the SAS or other elite forces. Robert Mahaney, U.S. Army, E5 Retired. Avid cyclist...
