In 2003, Andrew Alderson gave up his job as a director of a London merchant bank hoping to find a new direction in life. Then, as an officer in the Territorial Army, he was called up to serve in Iraq. On his first day in Basra, he was asked if he knew 'anything about finance' and then was suddenly put in charge of sorting out Basra's Central Bank and running a multi-million pound economy. The US gives him authority for over one fifth of Iraq's finances and he becomes known as 'that merchant banker in Basra'. But Andrew and his team are never quite on Baghdad's radar, or under its orders. He quickly understands that there's another route to stability: getting the cash flowing again.
This means frequent, hair-raising adventures delivering suitcases, crates and binbags stuffed with millions of dollars wherever needed and by whatever means - in helicopters, speedboats, planes and landrovers.

MECH COMMAND: WHEN IT ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY, HAS TO BE DESTROYED OVERNIGHT Once upon a time, the Earth had protectors. Seal Team 6 … Delta Force … Paw Patrol. They’re all gone now, vaporized during an alien invasion that has only recently ended. What’s left behind is a small group of survivors led by a former scavenger named Danny Deus, who’ve been selected to compete for a spot as operators in the Mech Command, a global mechanized fighting force dedicated to defending the Earth, kicking the crap out of wannabe alien invaders, and looping back through time every now and again.
What most would consider a lifetime’s worth of work—battling extraterrestrial bad guys and saving the universe—Danny and the operators call a busy Tuesday. If you enjoy over-the-top sci-fi action, cool mechs, and smartass characters, saddle up with the Mech Command and enjoy a series that’s been described as READY PLAYER ONE meets PACIFIC RIM.
