An extremist warlord is about to unleash the world's deadliest shock troops. The Rotkommando - a fusion army of expert terrorists, political fanatics, and psychotic killers armed with a fail-save masterplan. Codeword...Mecca.
Now the Rotkommando is poised on the brink of a crazed kamikaze mission to nuke Israel and ignite World War III. Only three people on Earth have the power to stop them: a burned-out poet with delusions of grandeur, a devout nymphomaniac with a taste for blood, and a desert guru who communes with camels.
From Montreal, New York, and Washington, to Paris, Berlin, and Saudi Arabia, Mecca thunders at white-knuckle speed through the knife-edge worlds of espionage and terrorism. Where violence is a way of life. And time is always running out...

"Here is another world-class thriller, fresh, bright, and topical." (The Globe and Mail)
“Narrator Steve Scherf quickly assumes a rapid pace for the story, told through the eyes of an ex-CIA agent who is coerced into the high-stakes world of global terrorism. Scherf skillfully transitions his voice from hostages to interrogators using a wide variety of global dialects, with Beverley Elliot skillfully voicing the female characters.” (AudioFile)

Tense political thriller.
A fast-paced political thriller, set in the ruthless world of espionage and terrorism where life is cheap, and winning is the only thing which matters.
There’s no-one as motivated as someone with something to gain, and the Lawyer of Slack Sawchuck, a former terrorist is told he can offer him a deal, in exchange for a mission. The deal - for a full pardon, and pension. The mission - he must help infiltrate an extreme warlords deadly troops, The Rotkommando, who have a nuclear bomb and intend to use it to start WWIII.
The original print version of this book was published over 30 years ago, so occasionally it may seem dated, however, its setting, is not. The storyline of a world at risk from terrorists and extremists, with crooked politicians and corruption, unfortunately, is just as easily recognised today.
This audiobook is narrated by talented Steve Scherf and Beverley Elliot, who successfully conjure up the wide variety of international voices necessary for this global thriller.
