About the 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.

  • 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
