Requiem for the Damned

A novel by

-In Sudan's war ravaged Darfur region, the government backed Janjaweed militia launches a genocidal attack against a pair of defenseless villages.

-In Washington DC, a routine police raid on a high-class brothel trafficking in underage prostitutes deadly.

-In the Sinai desert, a small group of Muslim refugees who hold an ancient secret arrive at an isolated border post seeking asylum in the Jewish state.

-In Somalia, an ex-soldier of the defeated government army walks into a dusty town in search of work with a ruthless pirate warlord.

These events, seemingly unrelated, reverberate through the corridors of power in Washington DC, Tehran, Tel Aviv, and Beijing, sending the special forces of four nations on a collision course in the lawless Horn of Africa. There is a war going on--a new cold war--and the prize is domination of the world's natural resources: oil, strategic metals, and, above all, human beings.

Two spies, two countries: Hannah Parras, Mossad assassin, and Ivana Svilanovic, CIA special operations officer, are ordered to risk everything in the name of national interest.

Praise for Requiem for the Damned:

Barry Broad's Requiem for the Damned is a tale as engrossing as they come of espionage, combat and political warfare in the heart of Africa. It is a nightmare story of latter-day slaves and warlords, Mossad agents and Chinese spies, Somali pirates and lost tribes, immersed in a fight over the illegal trade in rare metals that today's high-tech economy runs on. Requiem for the Damned is Barry Broad at his best, full of the same sort of rich characters and fast paced adventure that made his first novel, Eve of Destruction, such a fine read.

--Drew Mendelson, author of the Vietnam War novel, Song Ba To

BARRY BROAD is a lawyer, lobbyist, and writer who lives in Sacramento, California. His first novel, Eve of Destruction, was published in 2008.
