About Book

Derek B. Miller's striking follow up to his much-loved, John Creasey Dagger-winning, Norwegian by Night.

The Girl in Green takes us deep into modern Iraq, where British journalist Thomas Benton and relief worker Marta Strom are persuaded by ex-US soldier Arwood Hobbes to embark on what may be a fools' errand in a last-chance effort to atone for their failure to save a local girl more than twenty years previously, following Operation Desert Storm.

Set against the shattered landscape and broken heart of Iraq, The Girl in Green is an adventure story told with all the wit, humanity and insight of Miller's acclaimed debut.
