Millions of dollars? he thinks to himself. The wheels of greed begin to turn in LaDeau's squirrel cage brain. It's an almost animal instinct that has risen up, looking for its next meal. Hmm. That money will be back at base quite soon, and the army will want to secure it. He ponders the situation. I need some of that money, but not all of it. No sah. Taking all of de money will draw attention. But if they are missing a few hundred thousand, who's to know? How am I going to do that? LaDeau's sinister mind continues turning. I need a plan. When a group of US soldiers discovers a cache of millions of dollars hidden in a basement outside Baghdad, Bowe LaDeau is determined to get his hands on some of it. As an employee of BCKR, a contracting company for the Defense Department, he has more than his share of experience running scams in various countries. With a record that includes smuggling diamonds out of Afghanistan and running a brothel in Bosnia, he's certain that he can pull this off as well. The plot he hatches involves murder, theft, and a shocking disrespect for the dead. He thinks he has a perfect plan and all his pawns in place, but will his disregard for life and death prove his undoing? Will the soldiers whose bodies he so casually uses ever be Buried with Honor?

While the narration occasionally floats over to soldiers as they search for Saddam, discover cabinets filled with cash and photos and encounter a deadly roadside bomb, readers mostly follow LaDeau and his cronies, which proves to be great fun.
