Bomb Harvest 

A huge live bomb is found behind a village school in Laos and straight-talking Australian bomb disposal specialist Laith Stevens arrives to check it out. He’s in the process of training a new ‘big bomb’ team, so reluctantly leaves it until the team is up to the task. Reluctant, because rural poverty has triggered a brisk illegal trade in bomb scrap metal and the local children are out hunting for bombs.  

This timely story is terrifying and yet filled with eccentric characters who use humour to get them through the harrowing task alive.
