Blood & Sand
Bargain Book Copy
On June 6, 2004, in a quiet suburb of Riyadh, BBC Security Correspondent Frank Gardner and cameraman Simon Cumbers were filming a report on Al-Qaeda in Saudi Arabia when they were ambushed by Islamist gunmen. Their government minders fled; Simon was killed outright. Frank was shot in the shoulder and then in the leg. As he lay on the ground, pleading for his life, a figure stood over him and pumped four more bullets into his body at point-blank range . . . Against all the odds, Frank Gardner survived. Blood & Sand is his remarkable account of the agonizing, literally life-shattering journey he has taken - from being shot and left for dead in a dusty Riyadh street to where he is today: partly paralyzed, but alive.
