Book Description

In this fast paced thriller, Iraq’s top terrorist makes two promises – a kidnapped American contractor will be executed on a given date, his body dumped in Baghdad’s Green Zone and a major attack will occur in seven days.

Working desperately to find the American and thwart the impending attack is an elite 4-man CIA team which includes an attractive female doctor. But they can only watch helplessly as the terrorist and his masked henchmen behead the American during a live video feed carried on the Internet.

What they don’t know is that one of the masked men is not a terrorist, but completely innocent. He is an Iraqi pharmacist who has infiltrated the group. His only objective – to find his missing fiancée, who the terrorist has also kidnapped.

After the beheading, he is free to go. But little does he know that his fiancée will bring the deceased American's head to the Green Zone, and inside the dead man's mouth is evidence linking him to the terrorist.

This is the first novel in the popular MP-5 CIA series by M.H. Sargent.

More About the Author

M.H. Sargent is the author of the popular MP-5 CIA series. Each novel has Sargent's elite CIA team on a mission overseas, from Iraq and Afghanistan to Mexico. When asked about the deciding factor of writing a novel that takes place in Iraq, at a time when Americans were not very enthused about the war and might not want to read a novel set in that country, the author says, "Years ago, I obtained the screen rights to Aimme West's story - her husband had been deployed in the first Gulf War and came home ill. Then she had a child with severe birth defects. She did a lot of research and found that she wasn't alone - many wives were having birth defect children after their husbands returned from the war. Her insistence that something went wrong over there led to Congressional hearings and the revelation that our guys were given experimental vaccines overseas. So, when we went into Iraq the second time, I was really worried about our military. Were they going to face chemical and biological weapons? Were they going to be given experimental drugs? Then I started thinking about the Iraqis. What were they thinking? I imagine like people the world over, when war comes to your door, you worry about your family members first and foremost. Then you worry about your neighbors. Your community. Your country. And mostly, you just want it to end, you want to have peace and quiet. So that started me on the track, how about a novel that shows an Iraqi family? Shows what they are going through? What fears do they live with daily? And their take on the Americans coming in. That was Seven Days From Sunday. Then I just kept writing."

4.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of action 2 Jan. 2013
By Stan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fast pace and lots of action. I know nothing about conditions on Iraq, but it does seem believable. And the local people portrayed give a feel for how precarious it must be to live in such a volatile area. A few rather unbelievable coincidences to keep the plot moving, but well worth reading. I'll definitely read others by the author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gripping Thriller 9 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A well written, engrossing story. It portrayed the difficulties of the battles in Iraq to a high standard. It was easy to understand the problems the troops there had to face and are having today in Afghanistan. No one can be trusted. Although I found the early splits in the tale of showing the day, date and time of the occurrence unnecessary and a bit annoying, adding no suspense the the goings on at all. Later on, however, these interruptions had merit when the tension was building - as it did superbly. One reviewer commented that it was too American and would not appeal to other countries; I am as English as they come and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Bill Franks (

4.0 out of 5 stars Terror abounds in Baghdad 14 Dec. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's a good story, well written, with a good number of set pieces. Problem for me was the lead character's. I would take Gonz as the lead, but all the characters, and there's a fair number of them, share the limelight. It sort of loses focus a little.

Nevertheless, the story of the military being forewarned of a terrorist attack in seven days time, by a terrorist who always keeps his word, does keep the story ticking along quite nicely. There are some good twists in the story, and it knits together well.

The author certainly his some talent, and if the following stories are a good, and he develops the characters, he's on to a winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent first novel 20 Dec. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book came to my attention via recommendations from Amazon, and I really happy it did. The plot was well thought out, the characters developing as the story was told. Gonz is a likeable man with a great mix of being true to friends and colleagues yet ruthless when the situation requires it. Throughout the book, the "bad guys" are not always who you think they will be which adds an edge to the story.

There is not too much to add without giving away spoilers, apart from saying that you should definitely read this. I have already purchased the next in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Keeps you guessing right to the end 23 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A gritty and unforgiving plot ..... be prepared for some hard-hitting scenarios which are hard not to believe actually go on in this violence-ravaged country.

I found myself often wondering what I would do if I was unfortunate enough to have been put in the circumstances relayed along the way. Plenty situations to make you wonder whether you'd follow your heart or your head.

For the most part I think the content was very realistic and like other readers, couldn't put the book down.

Look forward to reading more books by this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad so far... 15 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Currently reading this. I confess I am more of a sci-fi fantasy sort of a reader and I got this on the offchance; but it clips along at a good pace, it's nicely written and entertaining enough to be a page-turner.
There are a couple of spelling and grammar errors but that's being a little churlish, to be honest.
Assuming it carries on as it has started, I would definitely consider getting another book by this author.
