PRLog - Jan. 25, 2011 - The British Government, struggling with a multitude of political failings, furtively removes eight people from their homes and blackmails them into helping the government. However, these eight citizens will not serve quietly and quickly turn on the very government that betrayed them.
The Eight of Spades
The team, handpicked based on individual skills and beliefs, trains to be the finest fighters on land, sea and air. All was going as the government intended until the unexpected occurs. With sheer daring and determination, the eight steal a highly advanced super ship belonging to the Royal Navy and rename it the Intruder. With the British Government
denying all knowledge of their very existence, the group transform themselves into Public Enemy Number 1, the invincible, enigmatic Eight of Spades.
When the team undertakes the challenge of clearing the Icelandic waters of the fearful gunboats that harass British trawlers during the 1976 Cod War, they find themselves nose-to-nose with the Navy they just humiliated. The Navy wants their ship back—preferably in one piece—but if not, a million pieces will suffice. With frighteningly realistic characters, West writes an electrifying account of action and adventure, rife with political corruption and greed.
