About the Book

Shortlisted for The Gold Dagger 2017, for best crime novel of the year

There she is, in a line of refugees in Kurdistan, just before the mortar lands. The girl they failed to save twenty-two years ago.

Thomas Benton and Arwood Hobbes watch the video again. It can’t be her, can it? But as soon as they ask the question, the journalist and the ex-soldier both know they have to make the journey back to Iraq’s shattered landscape and broken heart – they have to know.

‘The ludicrous nature of the situation the characters find themselves in is expertly delineated. There is real heart here too, though, amongst the black humour.’ Doug Johnstone, Big Issue

‘A thriller that combines characters of more than usual sensitivity with the harsh reality of combat and a prescient analysis of the shameful behaviour of governments.’ The Times

  • Derek B. Miller

    American writer, Derek B. Miller's acclaimed and prize-winning debut novel Norwegian by Night was published in 2013, winning the CWA John Creasy Dagger that year. A native of New England, he is the director of The Policy Lab® and has worked in international affairs with the UN, Governments and think tanks for over twenty years. He studied at Georgetown, Oxford and Geneva and has a Ph.D. in international relations. Miller lives in Oslo with his wife and two children. The Girl in Green is his second novel (2016).

“An engrossing, eye-opening, elegantly written book, highly recommended. ”
- Malcolm MacKay, author of The Necessary Death of Lewis Winter
“Miller’s powerful debut Norwegian By Night had a range of concerns, but quickly plunged readers deep into Nordic noir territory. The Girl in Green is very different, with Iraq its subject … A provocative engagement with US foreign policy is matched to rich and multifaceted characterization.”
- Independent
