In late 2005, the total casualties in Afghanistan were just barely over one hundred; meanwhile, the news agencies were publicizing, each day, the thousands of American soldiers who were dying in Iraq. There was rarely any mention at all of the conflict going on in Afghanistan. Little did Daniel Flores know that one year later he would be witness to the Taliban resurgence and lose some of his friends in the war. He was locked in a battle for his life against a determined enemy, in one of the most notorious and highly contested valleys in the Hindu Kush, in his Apache gunshipwithout bullets. South of Heaven is the searing memoir of Floress year-long tour of duty in Afghanistan. One of his missions was featured in a segment on the Military Channels My War Diary program. The segment was based on the rescue of an American Convoy in the Tagab Valley in Afghanistan. The video and audio footage of the actual battle that he shot with his own equipment was used in the production. The final week of his rotation in-country was a true test of his faith and his daughters faith that he would return home unharmed.

Life is full of ups and downs. First Caper got sacked from the only job he's ever known, and then he finds himself in bed with an incredibly gorgeous woman. But she isn't who he thinks she is. She has stolen Caper's little fishy friend Scaly Dave and is threatening to do bad things to him if Caper doesn't locate an elusive antique watch. She also failed to mention she was married to a murderer recently released from prison. Caper and his best-mate Dice set off to Cornwall to find the watch and save the fish. However, a number of characters are also on the hunt for it too, including three hit-men, one of which has narcolepsy, and three members of the unofficial Official Elvis Lives! Fanclub. What should've have been the start of a new life is now a race against time to stay alive. Every turn they take seems even more fishy and a little further than just south of heaven…
