Trade Paperback; Used. The Laughing Monsters by Denis Johnson. Mystery/Thriller.
"A post-9/11 literary spy thriller from the National Book Award-winning author of Tree of Smoke
Adriko is an African who styles himself a soldier of fortune and who claims to have served, at various times, the Ghanaian army, the Kuwaiti Emiri Guard, and the American Green Berets. He's probably broke now, but he remains, at thirty-six, as stirred by his own doubtful schemes as he was a decade ago."
