Cobra gold (Lewis, Damien)(2007, paperback)

Regular price $6.00

1976, war-torn Beirut. Under the cover of a massive firefight, 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.

Six days earlier, an SAS Major newly arrived in The Regiment had tasked his men with just such a mission - to steal terrorist documents hidden in that bank vault. But when SAS veteran Luke Kilbride presented his plan of attack, the Major tore it to pieces.

Kilbride didn’t appreciate this jumped-up officer telling him he was a fool. Neither did the men in his unit. Together, they decided to prove the Major wrong and rob the bank anyway, becoming fabulously rich in the process. They code-named their mission ‘Cobra Gold’.

But while the robbery went like clockwork, afterwards things started to go badly wrong for Kilbride and his men. Cornered on the gun-blasted streets of Beirut, they were forced to ditch the loot and make a spectacular getaway.

Two decades later, Kilbride and his team return to recover their hidden gold. But unbeknown to them, a powerful and ruthless adversary is hell-bent on finding it first..................
