Action | Fiction Adventure

They're not exactly the A-Team...

Benjamin was never the sharpest tool in the shed. For as long as he can remember, he's longed for adventure in far away lands. But every day he wakes up in the same boring suburb, where nothing ever happens. He rides his bike, reads Soldier of Fortune magazine with his best friend Jim, and wastes time working a dead end job at the local convenience store.

But when a phone scam from Somali grifters puts dollar signs in Ben-jamin's eyes, he and Jim hatch a hare-brained scheme. Ditching their daily grind and jetting o? to the coast of Africa, Benjamin and Jim plot to con-vince the locals they are highly trained Navy Seals, and demand the So-mali pirates turn over their treasure...

It's not a great plan. In fact, it might just get them killed...

But through a combination of crazy coincidences, inept schemes, and plain dumb luck, these dim-witted dreamers are determined to get rich, or die trying. They'll have to blend in with the locals, outwit bloodthirsty pi-rates, and survive a sex resort for senior citizens...

Can these two soldiers of misfortune pull off the ultimate con?
